Here it is.  Close to your budget and from a reputable seller.   ;D

I consume Buffalo wings and Bud Light. Neither are imported. Although my weather is often from Canada. Does that count?
Those damn Canadians. :D

I loved Part 1.  I hope they make Part 2.  Part 2 is an epic story that needs to be told and hit the big screen.

      Bill, In response to the question of what I  am looking for is a 68 GT 500 or KR 500 Convertible. I have seen the prices range from $150 - $ 250. Which is my my price range for the right car. My disappointment comes when a car comes up on an auction and sells for $ 20 - $30 more than it should in my honest opinion. I currently own a 67 GT 500, Superformance,  B 9 and a couple Chevys. ( Don't hold the last few against me) 
       I would just like to clarify , are prices moving up because of the Pandemic or should they be flattening out . Keep in mind I think the B9 's have taken a hit in the past couple years IMHO. I am just looking for the right car with good documentation and needs some work. No trailer Queens this time around . Anyone have one for they would part with? Thanks Steve
This sounds so familiar.  I remember back in 2009 I was looking at a car and I made the same sort of post to his forum.  I made the statement that a particular car I was very interested in was, in my opinion, 10% to 20% higher then it should be.  A well know forum member here (Bill Collins) chimed in and proceeded to voice his "humble" opinion and he even went so far as to make the statement "if your gonna let a car get away from you that you've been after, over your perception that it's 10 to 20% too much, then your an idiot". 

Now I'm not calling you an idiot, like Bill called me that fateful day, but I gotta admit, that little kick in the ass by Bill convinced me to buy that car.  I still have that car 12 years on and I couldn't be happier and I gotta thank Bill for his soft spoken words and gentle nudge in the right direction. ;D

Thanks Bill.

The Lounge / Re: Looking for a Boy name starting with A any ideas?

90 percent in jest, 10 percent serious.  Keep in mind, my thought processes are not normal.   I am maybe half a bubble off plumb. Dolph Lundgren is a viable name incidentally.  And a well known actor.

And yet another perfectly good thread ruined by yours truly...
Whew!  Ok, fair enough.  I'm good with your "90 percent in Jest".

Dolph is a good name except is doesn't start with an A so that's a no go.

Do not name your kid Adolf!!  Unless you want him to grow up being taunted and have him come home ever other day with a black eye after a fight because his freakin name is Adolf!!!!  Who comes up with this shit!!

If you do decide to name your kid Adolf then you might choose a nice subtle middle name such as Osama.  That would make a nice "one, two" of historically evil names to really scar your kid for life.

How about something  cool like Atom, Axel, Angus or something even like Atomic.  Super strong names and no nasty historical connotation tied to them. 

Two of the coolest names I can think of are Will Power (Race car driver) and Peekoaboo Street (Olympian) . Even though Peekaboo named herself,  both names are super unique and both people are successful and they don't have a name associated with a damn killer.

Adolf...... what the hell man?  Just my humble opinion  ;D


The Board Room / Re: Scammed by a sac member

I wouldn't be in it for the information. By then I will already have positively identified the culprit. Perhaps my methods would, instead, be for something other insidious purpose...
Ironically it was a Luftwaffe Commandant who adopted the friendly questioning method as far more effective which sorta became a guidebook for the CIA.

Hanns Scharff, a German WWII pilot interrogator, is considered the most successful interrogator of all time. In fact, he was so successful, he helped in shaping the U.S. interrogation techniques after the war. But how did he do it?

According to his own words, Scharff developed several techniques that helped him in his interrogations. First of all, instead of torturing or degrading prisoners, Scharff offered them courtesy and what appeared to be consideration. Instead of attempting to coerce or persuade with offers of booze and prostitutes, Scharff and his fellow officers took prisoners to whatever cinema shows were available at camp, and even shared tea and coffee with them, when they could get it.

According to Scharff, Prisoner of War (POW) interrogations should consist of three phases. First is to help the POW relax and feel comfortable by making small talk about anything at all. Second, after hes loosened up, the questioner should try to get the prisoner to reveal any military information or plans that he might know, ideally without letting him realize he has said anything of value. Third, the interrogator must write an evaluation report that is truthful, and that contains any and all information that might be useful to commanding officers in the field.

"So why did you sell a Shelby part you never owned? More tea?"
Damn.....that was a good post.   I'm not sure if I fully understand the subtitles of interrogations but I really enjoyed the education of your information, sincerely.   Where did you acquire this info from?   I'd like to read a bit more about it.



1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: GT350 Convertible ?

Watching an episode of Chasing Classic Cars Wayne was at an auction(believe it was one at Pebble Beach). The bidding of a car went up and up and hammered at no sale. Wayne then said there appeared to be no bidders in the room and the house has the right to bid a car up to it's reserve. First I ever heard someone say that in public. I knew it went on. Gary
Doesn't it say that right in the contract you sign when you buy or sell at an auction.  The house has the right to bid up a car.   

Happens all the time.  Hell, Barrett Jackson was even broadcasting live footage of Reggie Jackson bidding up his very own cars that he was selling a few years ago during one of their auctions.

As a seller that's just fine but as a buyer.......well, buyer beware.

You are dealing with used car salesmen. The bigger the outfit, the higher up the ladder they are and the fancier the bs is.

Actually "Carnival Barkers" is closer to the fact.
Carnival Barkers...... that's funny.

Yeah something smells fishy here...... looks like the owner had it bid up on BaT, paid them their selling fee and it didn't go anywhere.

Do these sort of shenanigans go on BaT, eBay, Barrett Jackson, Mecum, Russo Steele, Gooding's, Bonhams......... every auction ever held?

I am appalled and and aghast!  :P
