Apparently there was a post that was put up last night that was taken down or censored. Any comments as to why? Do others see it?

Yes Tim, I too saw it. For the person it was directed at, and what it implied (at least the way I understood and or interpreted it). It was next to impossible to defend. The person did try. I was floored.

 I too was there that day.

To be that distraught (OP) and for it to be posted.
That was creditably and character destroying with no recourse. I'm glad it was taken down.

Seeking a highly qualified Shelby mechanic in northern California who can inspect a 69 GT350 Convertible in the Santa Rosa Area.
This is to check all the mechanics of the car and engine compression, not to authenticate it as a Shelby or a numbers matching car.

Please email:

Needed by October 15-20, 2018

For an even quicker response, try contacting DemBeste motor sports. Bill Dembeste's shop is on the out skirts of the Santa Rosa area just off the 101. It would not surprise me if the staff there already knows the car.

Must provided references and be very knowledgeable about Shelbys.

Here's another one from Carmel/Monterey during the Rolex. I saw this Ford F-150 painted in the Gulf colors. I didn't take a close up photo but it was in the background of a different pic. You can see just the front end of the truck. It's a little blurry as I zoomed in on it from a different pic.

Very nice Keith. A couple questions for you:

1, re:Lift Bar
1.1, what are you using as the lifting location on the car?
1.2, based on the wood block (2x4?) position and shape, Strut rod cross member?
1.3, is the lift bar to floor jack attaching point "cupped" so it doesn't slip off? I'm assuming it is.
1.4 is the attaching point a standard diameter size?

2, re: Upper Arm Support
2.1 is the square end insert and end that contacts the A Arm polyurethane material?
2.2 is it  steel or aluminum? (I can't tell from the photo)
2.3 will Dan at CPS reproduce these two items?

The two pieces seem well thought out, as far as I know no one is making the Arm support for sale.

Also at the 2018 Rolex Reunion, a 1970 Porsche 917. Unrestored I believe.

Are those Bill Maier's rear flares?


In addition to the Maier rear flares, those front ends to The above 3 modified fastback and convertible I believe were made and offered by a company called Fiberfab. If I remember correctly (a lot of rust on the brain, so I could be wrong) Fiberfab was in Emeryville Ca.

Z. What is best place in U.S. to purchase Avons from? Thanks.

Roger Kraus Racing in Castro Valley CA on the west coast, Sasco Sports Inc in Alton VA on the east coast are the distributors of Avon Tires.

With all due respect to the OP, why are you putting a $100 tire on a $50,000 - $100,000 car ???

Get a  set of CR6ZZ Avons and you won't be sorry. Put a $100 tire on that car and you'll be sorry every time you look at it.



Agreed +1

As an alternative to the Avons in this size range are the Goodyear 225/60-15VR Gatorbacks from Kelsey tires at $320 each. These are VR speed rated tires! And they're "Goodyears". I run these myself, unfortunately these are the only size available. So if you can live with this size on all four corners. I'd say this would be the way to go. Just my opinion.

    A big thank you to all who came by my spot .

Hey Randy,

Thank you for that piece. I really didn't need much, I was amused as Bob G made a few trips to his rental car as Vern and I stood there. It was good seeing you.

Anyone heading to the "Denbeste Open House"?

I have a big, yet easy request, if it's possible;

If you can, please check the VIN on the '67 GT350 in Brittany Blue (the 10-spoke car)
It's noted in the 2011 registry as 67210F8A02652, but might actually be 67212F8A02652.
Also, can you take a photo of the front and the back of the car?

Thanks for any help on this!

I have an appointment tomorrow morning, but I'm zipping up to Denbeste's early afternoon. As for the 67 350, if it's there not a problem.

Just in case someone forgot, SAAC 43, the National Shelby Convention, will be held at Sonoma Raceway this coming weekend, Aug 4,5,6.  NorCal SAAC will be working Tech and assisting track operation...but this is not our event.  See everyone up there.

I flew in from NY last night. I'll be there Friday on through Aug 27th for this event as well as car week in Monterey (Rolex Reunion and Pebble) I wasn't sure I'd be here but I am. I'll register and hit up Nadine.

Also, with 1.94 and 1.600 valves.

You mean that you don't agree with me on other issues? Huh?  >:(

Do you have any pictures of them bending over my hood? :o

No, you and I subliminally butt heads on various topics such as Webers, Suspensions and a few others. But, that's okay. I find it quite entertaining, especially your tangents and references. You're expertise is well founded. Your opinion is just that, an opinion,  as is mine.
Nothing on the hood of your Cobra or Pantera. Sorry... But, I do have another home in Northern New York. I can possibly get a drop dead gorgeous leggy blonde or brunette draped over your hood to...
