Other than the coolness factor, does the stainless provide any benefits over regular steel, in a Cobra?

Yeah, but in '68 who cared what 50+ years will bring.

Plus, a Shelby is the best car ever for driving in deep beach sand... 8)

Ford Muroc concept model

The 1950 Muroc. In addition to the exotic fender styling, one of the most unique features is the speedometer located across the base of the windshield.

However the grill of this Muroc, could have easily inspired the design of electric shavers.

The shape looks like something a 12-year-old in the 1960s would have built from the AMT model kit that "Let's you customize your car three ways!"

Good idea to sell car models, but it looks like that kid at Ford Advanced Design used every part in the box, all at the same time.


little but extraordinary news in this Thread ...

The last missing piece of the puzzle was always the 3rd Annual South Course Concours d'Elegance Newport Beach Event on May 16, 1965

i read in the Auction Sales Brochure about that event, but never find a pic or anything on the net.

I even suspected it was misinformation, but when you no longer expect it, sometimes something wonderful happens

So i found in the Autoweek Issue 19 June 1965 a little but very nice pic and report from GT/108 on the show.

I am really happy to find a bulletproofed articel on an time authentic Car Magazin / Newspaper
for me a long journey is completed

Hope you can feel what i mean and have some joy also

Carroll must have known somebody at the Newport golf club or he just liked to golf there.  Was it called The Newporter Inn & Country Club back then?

That venue is where he held his "Garage Sale" in what...1986 or so? 

I was there, and also attended many Concours shows, but can't remember much... 8)

Make either of those two 5-speed Fastbacks black, and that was my ride in 5th grade. Until it got stolen from the school bike racks.

After that, I was back to riding my old Stingray with the springer shock on the front and the coaster brake.  Not as cool.

« on: May 11, 2021, 05:08:08 PM »
Be prepared that prices for shipping are up about 20-25%. 

I'm currently shipping a BB Corvette from San Diego to Wisconsin and that's costing the buyer $2100-ish...which is a pretty good deal.

Nice!  I've been to K&W several times.  Always a great show with great cars and great people. 

It rained heavily one of the years, but even the owners of the mega-buck cars didn't seem to mind. 

Not even the guy with the Amphicar that putted around the harbor most of the time.   8)


Strange facial expression.  Is that a real girl, or one of those new $25,000 robotic sex dolls?   (No affiliation  :-X)
