Thanks for this beautiful story about a family, a car and reality of life.
My eyes teared up watching it. It also brought up some old memories
from Sweden when a childhood friend, Ralph Hemansson drove up in his car,
a black 1969 original Hemi Charger with a small Hemi emblem on each front
side. Unfortunately he sold it to finance his drag racer.

I am in chock as I didn't know Jim was sick, It's more than 40 years ago I started to order parts from Jim for my 67 in Sweden.
NOS 289 HiPo camshaft and the under dash gauges come to mind. He is a great guy and very honest.
Please get well soon Jim.

A couple of interesting observations from looking at all these pictures of 5S114.
The horse emblem at the left side of the grill seems to have disappeared at some point.
The three screws holding the passenger side kick panel seem to have a larger head than the
ones normally used on restored cars.

Here is a drawing showing the Tach wiring. I put an in-line 2amp fuse on the red wire to protect the tach.
Learnt the hard way after frying the tach twice after a faulty condenser caused the problem.

I looked like crazy for this magazine and couldn't find it. Started to doubt myself as regards all the pictures I posted.
As I remember one of the pictures was showing the spare tire which I don't have. Read this article using my school German
( Swedish school) and was able to understand most of it. Will continue to look for it.

This car was featured in Auto Motor und Sport in the mid 60"s.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: 715 Holley question

The head on these are flat and the original rounded.
When getting my carb back from Joe Bunetic it had a flat
screw (had no screw when I sent it to him) and after a phone call he sent me an original.
The same happened on my friend Roland's (6S923) carb and Joe sent a correct screw
that somebody had made for him. I couldn't see any difference between the original and
the one he had made up.
