Looks good to me.

I also enjoy my  original SA factory built GT350.  But I do like clones, as long as they are presented as imitations, tributes, whatever besides the real deal.  They keep the interest in the cars.  Look at all the repli-Cobras that are out there.  If a factory original shows up, it brings alot of extra viewing and attention.  And that is a good thing, right? 

We have a lot of suppliers for Mustangs and Shelby parts still around but unfortunately have only a couple of devoted magazines or publications and they are  club membership based (SAAC and MCA).  I miss all the ones that were put out of business.

Only bummers to me are any sort of SA tag on the non-real, unreal (whatever the clones are) and builders raiding the bins for original parts that the restorers need. 8)

I hope the pins are not some he acquired unknowingly from the Pookie Monster. 8)

I do the same.  "Eleanor" is a Halicki Mustang, not a Shelby.  No Shelby License on the design or the name, even if someone has a CS signature on the dash. 8)

Is his hospital bed an "R" model?  It would make recovery go faster.  8)

For social distancing, lets bring back Drive In movie theaters.  Tear down the multi-theater mega-plexes and put back the big screen, rolling hill parking lot  and window speakers.  Save the planet from all that a/c use.  No car?  Well, stay home and save  your part of the planet.  There might be the return of the our passenger sedan with a back seat.  8)

If anything, it will have a serious affect on those pushing the development of more mass transit and high density housing. 8)

Got my refund back on my account.  No problem.  Now will have to figure where to spend it. Hopefully on some "Cancelled SAAC 45" memorabilia. 8)

I have not gotten the bogus message and I am sure if I did, they would not like my soonest response.  ::)

Thanks or the heads up.

Low air fares that were put in place to assist returning residents, mostly college kids.  Plus illegal vacation rentals promoting Hawaii as a good place to ride out the virus and shut downs.  Perps are  easy to spot as they ignore shut down rules for parks, hiking trails  and beaches and then post brag photos and messages on social media. 8)

Up For Auction / Re: 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 Conv. "Continuation"
« on: May 17, 2020, 03:34:00 PM »
The son of the second owner of my 66 GT350 worked at Beverly Hills Mustang on a couple of the cars and was amazed how so much work was rushed and poorly done, especially when considering the $40,000 list price at the time. Some were given more attention to assembly detail than others. He didn't recall which cars he worked on as the tag numbers and other particulars were not of importance to him back then.  8)
