The Lounge / Favorite Movie Cars. Non-Shelby
« on: September 18, 2019, 05:08:25 PM »
I thought it might be interesting to go off the reservation and see who else has a favorite move car that wasn't a Shelby. I've always been a Shelby guy with a soft spot for the Trans Am as it was my first car as a kid. Smokey and the Bandit and Hooper come to mind. But the car that has always intrigued me was the Cuda from Phantasm. That movie was crazy. I can still remember the scary tall guy stopping on the street to feel the cold air coming from the refrigeration truck or something like that.

Anyway, that Cuda has always been at the top of my list for "other" "non-shelby" cars. Who else has a favorite-

Saw an ad for this on a website. Interesting concept. Seems like a pretty high success rate. I have no affiliation or actual experience with them, but thought I would list the link and see what others think. As we all know, sometimes it's hard not to let'er rip from time to time!

Up For Auction / CSX2095 on eBay
« on: February 08, 2019, 10:06:44 AM »
Just crossed this. No skin in the game. Just passing it along and noting it:

Ad Information Description:
By shoehorning a potent, Ford V-8 into a diminutive AC chassis, Carroll Shelby managed to create a car that was seemingly much more than the sum of its parts. Not only did the 289 Cobra prove to be an incredible car to drive and enjoy on the street, it also proved to be highly competitive on the track, where it could easily hold its own against competitors in both Europe and North America. Initially, that first V-8 that Shelby utilized was 221 cu. in. in displacement; while the earliest Cobras were fitted with 260-cu. in. Ford V-8's, the Cobra finally came into its own its third powerplant; Ford's 289-cu. in. V-8, which entered production after the first 75 cars were built. With a total output of 306 bhp, Shelby's 289 Cobra tipped the scales at only 2,000 lbs., a monumental 500-some lbs. lighter than the Corvette, a figure that paid massive dividends in terms of performance. According to the SAAC World Registry of Cobras and GT40s, CSX 2095 arrived in Los Angeles in the spring of 1963 and was invoiced to Coventry Motors of Walnut Creek, California, in June of that year. Although the car's first owner is unknown, by April of 1972 it was owned by Robert C. Able of Eugene, Oregon, who acquired the car from Arthur Johnstone, of Medford. In 1974, the car was repainted dark blue with contrasting red leather seats, and the original engine was replaced with a later 289-cu. in. V-8 with dual-quad carburetors, and wider wheels were fitted at the same time. Jim D'Onnofrio of Salem, Oregon, acquired the car in 1981 and by that point, the car was painted black and the fender flares were widened to accommodate wider wheels. D'Onnofrio kept the car for over 20 years, finally parting ways with it in 2003, and the car's next owner was Bill Bryan of Winter Park, Florida. Upon purchasing the car, Bryan sent CSX 2095 to noted Cobra restorer Mike McCluskey in Torrance, California, where the fender flares and modifications where returned to original. This was to be no garage queen and in Bryan's ownership, the Cobra saw extensive use and was driven in several Cobra tours. In a recent conversation with RM Sotheby's Research & Editorial department, Bryan commented that it was a delight to drive and served him well over the course of his 15 years of ownership and would not have had a moment's hesitation in hopping in the car to drive it across the country. Trading the car recently so he could acquire a 427 Cobra, CSX 2095 remains in excellent condition throughout and is ready to drive and enjoy in all regards. The car which made Carroll Shelby a household name, the 289 Cobra is nothing short of a legend in American motorsport and automotive history. While so many are kept hidden away in large collections, the best way to enjoy a Cobra is to drive and enjoy it on the open road as Shelby intended. CSX 2095 has proven to be an exceptional driver's car over thousands of miles of road use in recent years and begs to return to the open road with its next custodian.

The Lounge / Don Prudhomme Shelby Poster
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:48:40 AM »
While I was researching the Shelby Girl poster thread I came across something rather interesting. I didn't want to highjack the thread, so I thought I would start a new one.

I was looking for the Don Prudhomme poster images to verify the "shelby" logo and I crossed another image that was exact to the poster, however it was used by Car Craft. If you look it was taken at the same time, however just a few seconds earlier. In the upper left corner you can read NO.1 SINCE on the banner ad in the car craft image, but a few seconds later the poster image was taken as the red part to the left of the text on the sign appears. It was the same day as you can see the broom in the upper left corner is in the same location.

What I found very interesting was the logo on the blower is different. In the Car Craft image the blower sticker is "CRAGAR" while the logo on the Shelby poster is the CS SHELBY logo.

I just found it very interesting. I am assuming the Cragar sticker was what was run on race day?

The Lounge / Hagerty Website and 65 values
« on: December 05, 2018, 02:49:51 PM »
Looks like Hagerty revamped their website. I went poking around and you can find your car and get current market value figures and recently sold figures. I realize it does not include private sales, but interesting non-the-less. Here's what they say about 65's.

I had fun re-visiting this one. It was on the forum 1.0
Thought I would re-post if you hadn't seen it.

CSX 2000 Series / A bit confusing
« on: October 25, 2018, 09:58:12 AM »
I was surfing Ebay last night and stumbled on to the following posting for a "2018 Shelby COBRA." The Bondurant Edition. The thing I found interesting is it has a CSX2000 series number. Now if that isn't going to confuse the heck out of everyone. I can hear it already.... well it's a 2000 series so its original....... real.... etc. Not sturing the pot, but why the heck would they do that.

Last 1960's SA built COBRA was Daytona coupe CXS2602?  8/31/64

The Lounge / Modern Wheel - wheel cleaner
« on: October 24, 2018, 09:29:16 AM »
I thought this might be a good place to see if anyone has had any luck, or likes a certain brand or kind of wheel cleaner for their daily driver. I have noticed when I go through the car wash, the brake dust that accumulates on the inside of the spokes of the wheels and the calipers is starting to build up. Since the weather is changing here in the midwest, it's not as easy to spend a few hours detailing the wheels. I have tried in the past ( many years ago ) to use the spray on wheel cleaner. The old products used to leave a film or etch the wheels. The current wheels I have now are black and powder coated, so there should be no etching problems. My thought was to use one of the spray on type cleaners right before heading into the carwash. So while i'm gassing up, spray the wheels and let it penetrate for a bit before heading in to the wash bay. Has anyone else tried this method with success? and if so, what brand or kind of wheel cleaner has brought the best results.
