1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: resistance wire install

If you want an orginal style connector check with Mike Williams with Orlando Mustang. He had custom molds made for doing this.

I ment to say Larry worked for State Farm

Yes they were my pictures that my son posted a few years back. Larry Parker was the driver/ mech for Dale Nichols(owner of gt40 XGT-3,427 cobra,289 cobra plus many more ford race cars). I worked for State Farm insurance for many years. He also drove in the 12 hrs at Datona in a Viper. He was a very nice guy an attended many SAAC convention with the GT 40.  I think his son still has a 68 Shelby.

I just found my copy of title from Larry Parker showing he bought it 07/18-1977. The car was in his wife's name Mary Ann Praker

I bought 047 from Larry Parker in Orlando on 8-9-1982. He purchased it from the orginal owner Robert Mungall. On 10-1982 I sold it to Wayne Conover. Car was rusty in the rear quarters, door jams, side vents. Had its orginal trans with a hurst shifter and a red right front fender. Orginal motor had been blown up and was missing. It was also missing the steering wheel and insturment panel. The orginal hood was with vehicle. I have never been contacted about this vehicle and I do have several photos.

I retired from Florida in 1998 and moved to Winstom Salam NC. At that time homes with land was very affordable along with auto insurance and property taxes. In the past few years all of them have increased. I suggest you check into the each states personal income tax which takes. (NC taxes are based on all income even from pensions from other states)  Ga. And South Caroline offer tax exempts for seniors on incomes which NC does not.  Looking back I have enjoyed living in NC but wish I had looked into each states tax laws, I could have saved some money!

I have informed my wife to put some of my ashes in the gas tank of my Shelby so the next owner has to start working on it trying to find out that's wrong. That way I can still be with the car for awhile longer.

My wife's family have their family reunion at Hickory Knob state park every Father's Day there. Been going for over fourth years. You are right that it is a small town that has not changed in all the years I have been visiting.  Lots of snow birds have winter homes their around the lake.

I have had this happen and found the front rubber brake hoses were the cause. They would not let the fluid flow back.
