The Lounge / New Hot Wheels Mangusta

This just popped up in my email today.

Looks pretty cool.

I've recreated the Bud Moore Engineering Cougars liveries - both the 1967 Trans-Am and 1968 Grand American versions.

There is also this outfit :

They claim their's is the most accurate but I see a couple of things I would take issue with - but they are probably the most cost effective.

Don't think I've ever seen pics of the TA Cougars running Minilites in '67.

PM me if you are interested.

And thanks for building a Cougar - can't wait to see it when you are done!

Cars and music - two great tastes that taste great together.

Don't know how I'd missed this one, but heard it on the radio today and it made me chuckle.

Be patient and listen to the lyrics -

If you like '60s era NASCAR style Grand American/Trans-Am race cars and you've got 30 minutes to kill -

Fascinating episode - Jay actually drives the concept.

- Phillip

I'm putting this under "Shelby American Racing" even tho this is from 1970.

Very cool vintage documentary on the '70 TA season.

As far as I'm concerned, vintage Trans-Am is the shiznit.

Up For Auction / '69 B429 with 13k miles
« on: April 04, 2020, 01:59:25 PM »
Saw this on eBay -

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429

- Wimbledon White Fastback
- Boss 429 V8
- 4 Speed Manual


Remaining untouched, this complete and stock vehicle was purchased from the original owner in 1981. It was driven 30 miles home and then parked in the garage where it still sets today has not been driven since. The Polyglass tires are still holding air and original paint shines. Please refer to the spec sheet in featured pictures for factory details.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / GT500 Car Life Article from '68
« on: March 28, 2020, 11:10:17 AM »
Been spending some quality time with my vintage car magazines and noticed an article that is in the July 1968 issue of Car Life.

Titled "A Shelby GT 500 in Europe" it is written and illustrated by Stan Mott.

The car in the article is described as being 427 powered with "two blue stripes over the top" and having Marchals and a 4 speed. The cartoons appear to depict a '68.

Mott rides along with a Claude Baltensberger driving, but it isn't clear if Claude is also the owner.

Any info on this car?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 1968 Hertz Sports Car Club Stuff
« on: March 23, 2020, 09:57:22 PM »
Wondering what all might be out there -

Certainly not as much as in 1966.

This is a scan of a small counter top brochure that I have. I've posted it in the past and my scan has shown up all over the place, including books and magazine articles.

Notice the 10 spokes on the Shelby.

Anybody have any other vintage Shelby/Hertz stuff from 1968?

1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Vintage Kar-Kraft Home Movie
« on: August 16, 2019, 01:31:03 PM »
More than likely already posted on here - but this was new to me and I couldn't find it in a quick search of the forum.

Over at the Brighton Area Historical Society FB page this 8mm home movie that was shot in 1969 at Kar-Kraft was posted.

Sorry, I don't know how to post the actual video here but if you go to the FB page you should see it.
