1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Excess heat inside the car GT500KR

When we painted them, all the interior was taken out. So all the floor boards and again as high as we could get to towards the front wall. Make sure that you get all the surfaces as clean as possible so the rubber / sticky side sticks real well.

How far back did you go?

Did you remove the rear seat and fit it under it?

Yes we did

We removed the rugs / factory insulation on our cars. We then installed the aluminum insulation thermal sound deadner sheets on the floor and as high as we could get them in the interior fire wall.

Then reinstalled the factory insulation and the carpet. These aluminum sheets with the special backing diverted the heat from entering into our interior.

Sounds like that would work...Did you use something like Dynamat?

Most excellent  !

My music professor keeps trying to cage me into writing lyrics.  I could do it if I chose I suppose. I like the music to let the listener imagine whatever they want. Lyrics impede this ability I believe because now the music is limited to a certain subject matter.
Though this song speaks to me greatly.

Great lyrics and written with a phrygian mode feel to it though Metallica uses a lot of different notes. They are extremely talented musicians in my mind. The chord progressions and rifs have a very exotic feel to it.
 As for Santana you shouldn't want to sound like him. Sound like yourself in my opinion.

Truly the only person that can resolve this is currently suffering through a loss in his family. I would be patient and wait or find a third party host to upload your pictures.

I am having the same problems trying to post pictures. It's a NO GO.

That car could be straightened out and back on the road in no time.  Just like Jimmies car will be...

I wonder if anyone bought the crushed car that looked like it coulda been a crushed 68 Shelby.

Folks we have several Shelbys,  F150 and an Expedition. But you need to step back take a deep search and smell the coffee.  Actually FoMoCo needs to do this also asap....

+ 1 agreed enjoy the moment

When our generation dies off (oh yes we all will) and Ford didn't try to move ahead, they would die as well.  Ford will be around long after you and I are long gone.

Relax, enjoy the ride and love the vintage antique cars like we all do.

Our beloved Mustang looks more like a pregnant carp then a serious muscle car. :-[ Ford already has the platform to unleash the baddest performance car on the planet if they choose to do so. The FORD GT could become the mustang, if they got their head out of their tail pipe.  If GM can produce a 200 mph beauty queen for 60k FORD could do it as well. Will the non beauty queen stay the same year after year as an ugly duckling with 1000 HP? Hopefully not change is difficult but good. Henry Ford hated change he felt the model T should remain with a lot of in fighting. Then the model A came along and the masses loved it, he wanted that to remain longer as well but the 32S came along with the new flathead v8 and the world changed forever. In my eyes something similar is going on as we discuss this. The real problem as I see it is that NON CAR TYPES are running corporate America and they dont seem to understand or care what people want! The aftermarket gets what people want Been to a S E M A show... Holy Cow they get it... ;)

It used to be tall and lean like Shelby. Now it's short and humped up like Quasimodo.

Is the head of the design team a non-comital he/she or a she/he with a manbun and purple suede high heels? I wonder?

It's a pity how the mighty have fallen into a cespool of global gender variance and customers who think the Nissan Cube is the coolest thing to "wear"?

Is it "Prince's" fault?


I remember when Ford Corporate folks started showing up at SAAC Conventions, tell us how influential we were, but told us to stop asking us for jobs at Ford. Maybe they should have listened?

You can establish yourself with building something like the Ford GT as elite but with the infinitely small numbers you build them in, just show your attitude of elitism and "don't tell us how to build anything" lectures.


It was the little folks who made Ford a winner at Lemans but it all just went to support the ego of the Emperor who owned the little people anyway?

Where is this all going? It can't be good?

Did Ford ever understand that the concept was Jack the Giant killer? I have my doubts.

Doug, I get your frustration but let's face it, you and I aren't the market that Ford is targeting.  I'm sure your father or grandfather said the same things about the mustang.  Throw away car, ladies car, tin can, ugly, unsafe, etc....  see what I mean it is all perspective with what you grew up with and Ford is driven to focus on branding their vehicles to the next generation.  They know most of us aren't going to spend $$ on a new mustangs because we are nostalgic of the past.

You could say yeah but WE (our generation) can afford to purchase a new car and the 20's something can't. Thats not true, they probably can't pay cash, but they have no issue financing a vehicle. 

When our generation dies off (oh yes we all will) and Ford didn't try to move ahead, they would die as well.  Ford will be around long after you and I are long gone.

Love what you said but Ford is not going to make it happen

Let go of their exclusive cash cow and make an affordable world super car for 60 to 150k ...blasphemy !

Totally disagree,  the C8 is 100% American

Why buy a Fellali when you can have the equivalent,  no let me correct myself ... a better vehicle for a percentage of that temperamental, unreliable, the locals wouldn't know where to start to fix it, I cant take it out because some may hurt it steal it forgein P.O.S ...

As far as the GT500 you always have to remember that is abd always will be an SVT vehicle paying royalties to use the Shelby name plates.

Unlike the original ones and the ones made today by S A.

The GT500 pays tribute to the Shelby Brand, the corvette is just another car that's trying to be Italian but just not quite there.  If one wanted a Ferrari then you should buy the real thing not a knock on GM product :-).....  How about GM building it to pay homage to a 67 corvette, then you're talking.
