1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: How many on this site have a red Hertz?
« on: February 17, 2020, 08:25:18 PM »
Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the research. I would have thought more red ones went to California. I have an original Cal plate to 843 that the prior owner graciously provided. I keep the plate indoors on a wall. A special artifact that is part of the car.
   SLED... Did the plate start out with TQK  I had an early SHELBY # 409 still have its California plates.

The Lounge / Re: Owners of Edelbrock acquires Comp Performance Group.
« on: February 11, 2020, 08:50:00 AM »
Comp performance group has been on the leading edge of performance for some time. In my opinion Edelbrock needed the purchase to keep them afloat. Most racers or performance people think of Edelbrock lastly when building their cars, but will use COMP or TCI convertors as a go to for their projects first. I personally don't feel their will be any smoldering carcasses in the transition, think of Colt industries they own everything from carbs, gaskets, shifters etc. All good stuff but no one thinks about the business end of things.

Beautiful car... On 1.0 I asked if my 10 spoke wheels should be gold colored and the response was, it is the faded clear coat that begins to yellow too a much more muted color. Yours appears to be a nice looking bright gold color but not original, easily fixed if you so choose. Nice grab enjoy it to the fullest.

Drew- That's a class act response. There is enough room for everyone to play in our sandbox if they so choose. Slinging fecal matter about never helped anyone or anything. There are a handful of you guys that restore vintage stuff, and there are a handful of guys that can ring out every last fraction of horsepower with newer carb technology. Most know where to look for these guys, if not they can come here and make their choices on where to go for their individual needs. Thanks for your contributions to this great Hobby.!  ;)

The SPIN doctors are hard at work trying to drum up interest. They are about right in line with the prius… Yaaahn the soccer moms will get to practice on time or quicker I suppose. :-[

Use that knowledge to use a quality engine guy that understands what he is doing, you wont find the tricks of the trade in print. You will find it in the heads of the best engine builders around the world. As an engine builder told me, this aint no LABOMBA small block Chevy. :-[

That's incorrect in all the right ways! ;)

Appeals / Re: Small letter 289 Cobra 2x4 intake and carbs value
« on: February 04, 2020, 04:09:20 PM »
After reading the which is best, it became clear that there is only a handful of people interested in vintage performance pieces. The sad fact is that very few of us want to feel the way it was or is. Very few tinker around with their toys or are worried about even driving their cars anymore. To those that can and do, it is the most awesome feeling experiencing what our for fathers concocted for some good times. ;)

The most impressive sight one will ever behold is the sight of dual DOMMINATORS on a small block Ford. I have never been smart enough or willing enough to drop some major coin, on the use of this set up. The sight and sounds emitted from such engines running this set up will treat your senses to something you will never forget. Think of one of VOGTS engines getting ready for a spin. :) It is the most impressive so over the top setup that you would think its impossible to make it work... OOOOH they make it work all right, you just need the rest of it to go along with the ultimate small block set up. PURE AWESOMENESS.....
