This non-original motor GT350 car sold for $135k in 2019. I don't know if there's much more money for this car but we'll see.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Hidden Ford VIN
« on: August 30, 2020, 10:46:36 AM »
If there is no VIN the panel has been replaced. The Ford VIN is also on the right side under the lip of the fender.
Not all 68 Metuchen built Shelbys/Mustangs had the VIN's stamped on the passenger side apron. Drivers side yes, sometime even double or triple stamped.
MY car has the Ford VIN stamp on the divers fender as per usual.  When I first got the car I drilled out one of the rivets on the Shelby tag to have a look at the Ford VIN and the VIN was not crisp and looked kinda messed up.   I was like "what the f#ck" and I thought perhaps I had a problem but then I got educated on double stamped VIN's.  That's when I realized my car has double stamped VIN. 

Makes it even"more rare" in the Shelby world  ;)

LOL I "knew" what you said thanks to Google. Its cool tool to use. Heck I even use it to confirm "stories". LOL https://www.google.com/search?q=translation&rlz=1C1VFKB_enUS749US749&oq=translation&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l6.2959j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
I gotta use Google translate more often.  Seeing how I am Linguistically challenged.

Actually I am not linguistically challenged as some would suggest.  The correct inference is that I am not multi lingual OR I am multi lingual challenged. 

Now, as I previously requested, "I need some dudes up here who speak American goddamn it!".

You have to paint your car Blue.  If you don't, you will always have doubts.  Paint it Blue.

Up For Auction / Re: The John Atzbach Collection - Online Catalog
« on: July 12, 2020, 10:41:43 PM »
Hey Doug, I sold you a 68 manual last June ???
You did indeed.  I am looking for the second printing of the 68 manual so that I can have both versions.  I really appreciate you selling me a first printing of the 68 manual.  I tried for years to get a decent one and you helped me out so I am grateful. 

There is a second printing on the Atzbach collection which is up for auction but I don't want to bid on it and pay $400 to $500 Canadian for it.  I'd love to add the second printing of the 68 manual to my collection but I've got my limits.

Los Angeles Region SAAC / Re: Hank in the press again

At the time of my picture with Hank I didn't fully appreciate that I was taking a picture with "Shelby royalty".  I'm pretty proud that I've had a picture taken with a legend.  As a "young pup" of 49 years old, I was humbled to be photographed with someone who bought their Cobra 4 years before I was even freakin born.

Thanks to you Hank for that picture.  I am honored.

I'm bidding on an item for $30 but Mecum didn't ask for the standard fee of $200.  Wow, I wasn't aware of a steep $200 fee to bid on a small item.
Looks like when you go to click a bid, they don't ask you for the "standard" fee of $200, which if they have, I would've never bid $30.

Hi 69mach351w,

The "OnTime" format is free to bid.  However there will be a 20% buyer's fee plus 3% for using the VISA, plus there will be a S&H fee to a third party as well.  The Mecum OnTime bidding is their first try at this.  I expect they will have learned from this experience and will make changes next time.

It is the internet bidding that requires the $200 registration fee, plus there is a 20% deposit required.  Then there is still the buyer's fees.  I think Mecum may have scared a lot of potential bidders away because of this.

Best of luck

Cory
There was probably a dozen items I would have bid on but when you throw a 20% buyers fee + 3% for a credit card + a S&H fee to Canada, I've pretty much lost interest in bidding on anything.  A winning bid on a $200 piece is gonna probably cost me over $300 US dollars (or over $400 Canadian dollars) once all is said and done to get it to me up North.  I like this stuff but I'm sitting out this auction.

If anyone has an original 68 Shelby manualthey want to part with, please let me know.

Wanted to Buy / Re: 1968 Shelby Convertible

Did I use to own  #4022?
You probably did at some point.  Pretty sure you've had your hands on 70% on all Shelby's bought and sold in the past 15 years.  That's a huge credit to your stature in the Shelby world and your great reputation

I was privileged to share a photo with Hank at SAAC 43. 
While admiring Hanks car at SAAC 43 in Sonoma, I was informed by a fellow Shelby enthusiast that Hank was one of the oldest original owners of a 65 Cobra.  I figured "Damn, I need a picture with a legend"  ;D.
