Looking Back / SAAC-12 Charlotte NC

I think there was a thread on this on forum 1, now lost ?

This was my first event after I joined the club in 1987, I'll post the photos I have, no particular order, just as I have them in the

 photo album, may not be sharp as I didn't want to pull off the clear on those old albums, it never sticks back down properly.

Was it really thirty-four years ago !

I'm sure some here can I.D the cars, and maybe some of the younger people !

Mike

I'll number the photos in descending order in each post, so it's easier if one wants to I.D. an image.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Ford Station Wagons
« on: May 01, 2021, 09:45:22 PM »
How about a thread on Ford wagons ? I'll start in the 50's, but doesn't have to stay chronological. Can be your or your families ride,

 or seen on the street, or internet finds.

Any know the station brand in the first image with the red car ?

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Dave Friedman Ken Miles book
« on: April 30, 2021, 10:43:40 AM »
There's a new book on Ken Miles coming from Dave Friedman. I'm not sure how much new information there might be, but

 Friedman has a huge inventory of photographs from the Shelby years, many that have not been seen before. He was the official

 photographer for Shelby American I believe ?

I remember that cover photo on the last page "Slightly Modified" of Sports Car graphic back in the day with the caption something

 like " give me that trophy you bloody colonial, it's mine !"  ;D

The Lounge / Scale Models Of Shelby & Ford Cars
« on: November 09, 2020, 11:32:16 AM »
I think there was a thread on forum 1 on this topic ? I thought I would start a new one, didn't see any thing specific on this forum.

I'll start by posting photos of two Super Coupe models I have, the dark car is a resin 1/43 kit from Automodelli, an Australian

 company, the lighter car is a 1/43 built up from Matrix.

The main thing I wanted to know which of these is the correct colour ? It seems to me I have seen photos of the real car in B&W

and in colour, and the shade varies, in some it looks darker, and others lighter, was the 1 to 1 car different shades in its life ?

Is one of the 1/43 models Guardsman Blue and the other Viking Blue, or neither  ? Thanks for any input.

Let's see what you all have in models.

Mike

PS: the dark car needs a second layer of white stripe decals because of bleed through.

1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Bunkie Knudson's Boss 9 lost

Interesting  8)

I have a couple of photos of that car that are in this video, that I found a couple of years ago on the net.

I wonder if this is a story like the Jim Morrison '67, and will it ever be found ?
