The Lounge / Which Cobra - Paul Petersen
« on: October 07, 2020, 06:59:04 PM »
With the James Dean thread going I thought of another actor that did have a Cobra, Paul Petersen. Halfway down in his bio it's mentioned. http://www.paulpetersen.com/bio.html
He was the first President of the newly organized Cobra Owners Club of America (when they only allowed owners of Cobras to be members). At $9,000 it must have had a lot of options.

I mentioned the "I WUZ THERE" pin in another post. For those of you that asked - yes it's not for sale. I don't know how many were made but I've seen very few.

Wanted to Buy / WTB Toploader
« on: September 18, 2020, 03:09:34 PM »
I need a close ratio top loader. Big input and output shafts. Turns out my GT1 Mustang originally had a toploader not a Jerico.
I'd prefer a 1 3/8 10 spline input so I don't need to change the clutch discs. It has the Tilton type throwout bearing where it mounts to the bellbousing not the trans

1965 GT350/R-Model / R Model side windows
« on: July 13, 2020, 12:45:38 AM »
I just spotted R Model window frames on Gas Ronda's 1965 A/FX Mustang. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJaa15Ayfik
I guess it could be expected. Les Ritchey who owned Performance Associates maintained the car and built Gas' engines. He also converted the factory 65-66 GT350 drag race cars for Shelby American. Performance Associates were SoCal's best Ford racers at the time. Just about every Ford dealer who was sponsoring a car had them prep it. I wonder how close Perf Assoc worked with SA on other projects. They used Belanger Headers (another Covina, CA company) on the Dragon Snakes. Belanger was less than 2 blocks from Les Ritcheys shop.

On July 9th the new un-Bronco will be introduced. It's also OJs birthday - I wonder how hard Ford's Icon Protection Team worked on that one?

The Lounge / Russ Davis Ford

It was famous in the 60s for sponsoring Gas Ronda and his drag cars - He was lured away from Downtown Motors with a fresh Thunderbolt and then he got in on the ground level with Mustangs. One reason he moved was to be near his engine builder Les Richie who owned Performance Associates and also raced Mustangs.
The dealership also sold tractors in the early years and in the 80s changed hands. It had sat empty for several years while the city decided what to build. Then ended up putting in condos but at least showed some historical imagination with the street names.

Just got the eblast and noticed it has a tribute to the "Voice of Willow". I'm starting to go through stuff to get ready for the retirement move and came across 4 rolls from Monterey when Ford was the Marque.
