The Lounge / Re: What is the nickname for your car?
« on: October 24, 2020, 09:22:08 PM »
Mine was named by a group of Marines during a Toys-for-Tots event many years ago, as I always dropped a full load of toys off with the car.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Cooling problems
« on: September 29, 2020, 06:31:05 PM »
I removed and stored my original clutch fan assembly and now use a straight driven fan assembly without a clutch. My GT500 runs much cooler, even at idle than when I had the fan clutch assembly installed.

FLASHING Yellow Alert / Re: So the listing for 6S622 on ebay is real?
« on: September 20, 2020, 12:42:56 PM »
Don't know - thought you did since you waved the flag.

Only thing I can offer at this point in time is that at least some of the pictures shown in the ad were taken originally in around 2017 or some of the pictures shown in the current ad are from the same location looking at backgrounds and structural (home/building) clues but from a different time of day.

I assumed it was a bogus listing because of the shady contact link, lack of photo's, and the no reserve;  but my post was removed by I am assuming the moderator?

The forum guide  moved your post to the "Flashing yellow Light" subforum as he will eventually move this one as that is where such posts belong  ::)

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Re: COBRA Cylinder Head Casting?
« on: September 18, 2020, 12:06:02 PM »
You can see the grinding marks and lack of raw casting. Strictly someoneís idea of personal art, maybe to prevent theft.

Casting numbers on the black and heads will tell the real tale of what you actually have on your hands.
