Looking for 1966 Hertz Memorabilia
What do you have for sale or barter?

The Lounge / The Bullitt car and 5R002
« on: October 02, 2020, 12:36:45 PM »
Does anyone know if the Bullitt car and “The Flying Shelby” are going to be on display anywhere?
I hate when cars are bought and then “disappear” for view

Wanted to Buy / Hertz stuff
« on: September 24, 2020, 03:35:28 PM »
Looking for Hertz stuff from the 1966 time period. Looking for the drink glasses, suit bag and whatever else’s that might be out there. Somebody has got to be tired of looking at the stuff you have stored away, now’s the time to think about selling it. Trying to put together an awesome display case of this stuff for the 2021 MCACN Show
If you want to loan something for the display that would be great also

« on: September 19, 2020, 03:51:47 PM »
Got a chance to pick up a free T10 four speed, it was used in a full size Ford 62-63 era. What is the overall length of the T10 used in the Shelby GT350 in 66. Might want to change mine over to a 4 speed one day if this will fit   This one is 26 1/2 inches long

Regional Shows and Events / 2021 MCACN Shelly Hertz Display
« on: September 16, 2020, 11:06:22 AM »
In the world of muscle cars the MCACN show is the pinnacle of shows. I have been in contact with Bob Ashton about a display of Hertz cars for 2021.
First do you think there is enough interest ?
Second can we can enough cars to fill the display area
I would like to get one of each of the 66 colors, (black, white, green, red, and blue) plus at least one each of the 68-69 cars.
I have already gotten a few volunteers, a rare white and blue 66Hertz and a MCA and SAAC gold winning 1969 GT350
If you ever wanted to display your car at a show, this is the one !
If you have been to the MCACN show. You’ve probably seen the Studebaker and Nash Nutz displays, really cool cars but the Hertz Shelby’s are truly unique
So do you want to be a part of history ?
Send me your information and I’ll put it together and send to Bob Aston to see if we can make it work
Also looking for Hertz memorabilia (suit bag, drink glasses, signs, tote bags, etc) to display in a locked display case.

Wanted to Buy / 2014 Shelby Registry
« on: June 22, 2020, 06:22:02 PM »
Looking for a new 2014 Shelby Registry 68-70, thought I had one, but don't

The desire to move to my left and hug the car was almost too hard to resist

The Lounge / What's everybody reading? Any Recomendations?
« on: April 15, 2020, 10:48:46 AM »
During all this Social Distancing", restricted travel, etc. I am taking the time to reread some of my Shelby/Car books The two I reading now are "Shelby Mustang GT350, My years designing, testing and racing Carroll's legendary Mustangs" by Chuck Cantwell with Greg Koloasa and "The First Three Shelby Cobras, The sports cars that changed the game", by Gordon Bruce

Both are good reads and really give you an insight into what would have been a magical time in auto history, surely never to be repeated. I was just born about 5 to 10 years too late to have been a part of it, but was lucky enough to get a GT350 back when they were cheap ($1,000 in 1971). I also remember Ford's "great garage sale in the early 70's where my buddy as able to get a 427 SOHC and bunch of spare parts  including two cylinder heads, gasket sets, for $1300 at Holman and Moody. They had a bunch of high Nickel content machined Boss 301 blocks for $50, Sodium filled 427 exhaust valves a $0.05 apiece, 427 NASCAR engines complete for $500 and a bunch of GT40 parts and stuff. On the way out they offered us an aluminum 494 Boss 429 style Can-Am block for $25 and they would have tossed it in the truck.
Does anybody know of any books about this sale? Or perhaps something about a Shelby sell off when they moved from Calf to Michigan? Or a sell off when Shelby production shut down in 1970?
Any other recommendations of books would be nice to hear about

The Lounge / What one would you choose?
« on: March 31, 2020, 01:24:26 PM »
If you had a choice between, Little Red, The Green Hornet or the Bullitt, which one would you take and why?
Myself, I would take Little Red, just because I think it the one that really had “the right stuff”
What’s your choice?

CSX 2000 Series / Original Coupes
« on: January 02, 2020, 04:09:21 PM »
I’ve pictures of the bold on the original Coupe (CSX2287) it looks like they had big rollers to form the panels to fit the body buck. Questions are. Was the same body buck sent to Italy? Were the panels rolled or panel beaten in Italy. I know that all were different but was just wondering about the differences between the car. Any book that really covers the cars
