1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Upper firewall paint changeover
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:28:23 AM »
Is there a known date for the upper firewall paint detail?

I know from personally tearing down 1584 (March 31st, 69 build date) that the firewall (and even the tops of the inner fender panels) showed signs of having grabber orange paint on them (thanks to my overuse of a high powered steam cleaner), and then were blacked out at the factory. Yet, I've seen other cars, both before and after, with a painted upper firewall.
Was this an error during restoration?
Were only certain colors subject to the upper firewall black out?
Or, was there a certain time period where the black out was a simple production line change over, or change out?

Just curious this cold and early AM.

Thanks in advance

While life had it's ups and downs this year, and some were more likely to identify with The Grinch than with Santa, from my family to all of yours, here is wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Saw this posted earlier today, plenty of story going around, so far nothing with substance. 67 quarter panel? Anyone know the whole story?

The Lounge / Toys for Tots -2018
« on: November 10, 2018, 10:52:38 AM »
The trunk of "The Great Pumpkin" is now filled with toys for the Marine's annual Toys for Tots campaign.  Due to circumstances beyond my control, my spare funds were stretched ultra thin this year, but I was still able to shop smart and fill the trunk with over 140 toys for the children this year. Unlike my earlier in the fall season donations, these will be delivered this coming Thursday or Friday when the Marines are set up near the main entrance to town. My wife and I have done this for over 20 years and is out way of giving to those children less fortunate than our own.

How about you guys/gals, do you do something similar this time of the year?
Do you do it is style like we do?
