1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: 68 Registry deadline for submissions?
« on: February 28, 2022, 09:41:02 AM »
With the 67 Registry now ready, I am wondering if it is too late to make picture or written submissions for the 68 Registry.    I missed submitting a picture for the last 68 registry and I wish there was a public notification when these deadlines approach so I can make my submission.    I'd like to stay active with SAAC as much as possible.

The "New 68 Registry" was published in 2020. The way I hear it is there aren't going to be any more.
Interesting.  I was under the impression that SAAC was going to put out a new registry every year and I figured that since the 67 Registry just came out that the 68 registry would be next up to bat.  Perhaps I'm a bit over eager on this.

Vinny did reach out to me this weekend so I'll send my updates and submissions sometimes this year seeing how there doesn't appear to be a rush to get this in.

Thanks Pete and Doug.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Dash pot purpose and function
« on: February 23, 2022, 10:28:59 PM »
This is a typical Autolite dash pot and bracket. I don't think any new ones are available.




That is an amazing photo.  I have no words to express.

Concours Talk / Re: apron VIN stamp
« on: February 09, 2022, 10:42:59 AM »
+1 on What J and 98SVT said.

You need to check your state vehicle or crimes code, D.O.T. regs, and Federal law (which I think is what 98SVT posted).  Generally speaking, repairs are permitted as long as you follow those laws and are not misrepresenting or concealing the identity of the vehicle or part.  Your state D.O.T. website might be a good place to start.
Please record this conversation with the state DOT.  Assuming you could find someone who has an inkling of what your talking about, I would love to hear how that discussion goes.

Cut out the vin about 1-2" away and have it hammer welded into the replacement panel. Body work the weld and you'll never see it. Don't be afraid to ask a welder to see the quality of his work before entrusting him with this job.
That's what I was thinking.  Easy as pie... but is it legal to do this?

Without knowing your budget, there are several options on the site Racingjunk. Here's one with spares, etc:

Oh yes, I have been lusting over that GT4 for weeks now.  THAT, is one amazing track car.  I just gotta screw up my courage to call the owner.  It's well within the budget but I'm afraid if I make that call I might own it and that's not a bad thing.  I'm really not sure what's holding me back.

I have a friend with a 1997 Mustang Cobra that won itís class that year and several years after. I donít know much about it but can find out. He has moved on from that car and racing a modern Mustang now.
Thanks Rick.  The car sounds cool but I'm looking for something more modern.

Hi all,

I'm looking for a track car.  Preferably a 2017/18 FP350s, a 2012/13/14 Boss 302S or R, a FR500S/FR500C or I'd consider a 60 vintage racer.   Obviously I'm on the hunt for a Ford track car.  Anybody know of someone selling one or one tucked away that might be available?  PM me please.

Thanks

If it helps keep the lights on at Shelby Vegas then fine.  I still like going to the production facility/museum so fair enough.  "More Horse Power"..... it should be more kilowatts but you know that old saying "if you can't dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with bullshit" so let's bring on that extra Shelby horsepower in your "Mustang"  ::)!

I saw it at SEMA and I just blew right past it. Sorry to say but it was seriously laughable. What can Shelby offer for a performance upgrade to this car other then exterior emblems, strips and a big mark up for the name. 
There is nothing remotely "Shelby" about this car.  Nothing.
