1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Post a picture of you 68 Shelby

Thanx to the fine work of SAAC registrars, I was able to connect with the original owner of our 68KR.

I have been chatting with him on and off for the past few years, and sharing with him many photos from our past 28 years of stewardship.

The gentleman bought the car new and had it for two years at which time he traded it in on a 1970 Boss 302 (He traded a 66 K-code coupe to get the KR).

Sadly, Mike (the original owner had no photos or paperwork to share, just his memory.

Until a couple of days ago, when I opened my inbox and found this email from him.

The photo is from the winter of 1968 in Spokane, which was the worst winter in 50 years, with so much snow, that drivers would put red flags on their antennas so other drivers could see them coming from the other side of the snow banks.

I was thrilled to get this picture from him, and hopefully, he finds some others that have been hidden away...

Its getting close to the BEST (yea, I said it) BEST annual Shelby event of the year.

Spotted this "King of the Road" on a biz trip to Israel this past spring.

Powered by a 580 V8 (whatever that may be)

Love a thread like this.

We have 6 doggos at home.

Here are our two Aussies (excellent breed for those considering, highly intelligent, easily trained, and very social)
