I ran in the first Four Ball in 1982. Drove an ex-CHP cop car, painted dark blue.  Sold it to Dan Aykroyd afterwards. True.

BTW: I gave Aykroyd a very fast ride in my KR. He loved it.

Do you have an original copy of this pictures?

I "may" be in it  ;)

Wheres a picture of the fastest cannon baller Richard Gas Monkey Rollins?

I think he ran the Later ones, 90's early 2000's.  On his show, He said he won TWO of them.

Four Ball Rally perhaps  ;)

More likely even more secret. Maybe the snakeskin boot dance?

Better known as the "Michael A. Preston Memorial Four Ball Rally" run in the early 80's from Boston to San Diego  8) with a similar mindset to the original Cannonball.

They are in the car & driver 75 magazine story & a photo of all the cars starting ontop the roof of NY building on the cover.

That would be the August 1975 Car and Driver  ;)

To the cats defense, it was not trying to steal the car, but protect it from invading hordes that might have gotten in through the open window looking to make a home in the seat insulation or under the dash  ;D

Rich,

   If I was in a similar situation, I'd be reaching out to the folks who know the car, and know the market.

Take things slowly, do not jump on the first cash offer, and always, ALWAYS get a second opinion (or more).

Also, beware of foxes in the hen house, those that will approach you with your best intentions in mind, but have anything but your best intentions in mind.




Hi, I am in the early stages of considering to possibly sell my '68 GT 350. I have no experience selling a classic car so I'm looking for advice. A few questions I have are:
- How to determine the car's fair value (I have checked out the coralsnake website on car values btw)?
- Whether it makes sense to use an agent/intermediary?
- Is using a site like bring-a-trailer or ebay a good idea?
- What to do to prepare the car to get the best sale price?

My car is an unrestored survivor with 67k miles. It runs & drives great, is Highland green with white, interior in nice condition, 4 speed #0214. This is a car I inherited about 10 years ago. It had been stored in a climate controlled garage for 12 years & I enjoyed spending a few years making it road worthy & reliable.  Now I drive it pretty regularly on weekends & to local shows. I can't afford to do a full resto & I'd like to get into road racing, thus the reason for thinking about selling.

I appreciate any & all input!

Thank you,
Rich in Columbia, SC

Mod note: If you have a specific question on the item for sale, ask.

If not, consider taking the off topic post(s) to a PM to the seller.

Thanks for your future cooperation.

As the Forum Guide has already stated, and as the moderator of this particular sub forum, your comments in this thread are a bit on the harsh side. I humbly suggest taking anything else you have to say to the seller to a PM.

Rueben

I hope you correct the Mecum auction listing.  As a triple crown winner of just a few I think I know what Im talking about. You misrepresented your car.   Dragging in some names that dont want to be represented with you.  Please be honest with your car.  It has NOT been supervised by 2 saac judges. It is not a concourse car.  Has it been judged by gaines amd speegle?

If that pic of 1971 SCJ convertible is an auto, itís my old car lol. Ford only made one.

Wasnít yours red on red

Bill,

Her district is part of the Bronx and Queens.  Where are our NY SAAC brethren when we need them?  ::)

Yes, however, she is in "government subsidized"  ::) housing in the DC area  ;D

I need something that I can get roof racks on to carry my ladders and my Greyhound likes to go for long rides so it needs a back seat where she can stand up.

Just saying  ;)

Iím not sure if you caught the news that Congresswoman Alexandria Ortiz-Cortez (AOC) wants to ban all internal combustion engines.  Are there any SAAC NY members who wouldnít mind taking AOC out for ride in their Shelby?  Iím sure that once she gets to experience that sheíll surely come to her senses.

I've reached out to the Capital Area Cobra Club to visit this congresswomen early one Sunday morning (they get together monthly) so they can explain to her the joy of burning fossil fuels  ;)

CSX 2544, or a similar CSX that is in driver condition, a car that you never have to worry about not making people happy by not doing a concourse restoration on. Get in, turn the key and drive whenever you like, never worrying about a stone chip  ;) In another year, I just may be in the market for such a car.
