It is what is under the hood that is being tested in this case  ;)

Watch out for “Chris”, he is their secret weapon  ;)

Looks like the took the data plate and rubbed it on the concrete floor to “age” it. Long ago, a dealer/broker in the southeast was doing that to sell reproductions overseas. Could this be one of them?

I love a quality piano concerto. Was just listening to Claire De Lune, such sound bytes helps me relax and clear my head before the day begins.

Thanks for posting.

To the OP:

Having gone through some high stress moments on my adult life, I offer you the following:

Everything can and will change
You have gotten over certain challenges before
It really is a learning experience on the road of life
Not getting exactly what you want, or how you want it may actually be a blessing in disguise
Make certain to have some fun when you can
Being kind to yourself is the best medicine
Do not allow other peoples negativity get to you, it's not worth worrying about
Remember, there are always things to be thankful for.

Thus ends tonights lesson on getting through this baloney that sometimes life throws at you.

Just $145,000?  I thought it would have been a little bit more...……….

And here I was gassing up my hyper jet and getting my halo chute put on :D

I think it has to do with tracking who owns a vehicle. If those individuals are illegal, the feds want that info reported to them. NY it sounds like, does not currently want to report illegal individuals and their paper trail to the feds.

This is correct and covers the thread subject

Not certain what has transpired to cause this post, and no offense intended, but one post is more than enough to get your point across.


Sounds like a great trip, I'm in

I will soon be needing to transport my '66 Hertz Car from California to Florida.
Any recommendations for a reputable transport company?

Reliable Auto Transport (Orange Trucks), hands down.

I had some early 90’s interaction, sad to hear of his passing.

If as shown, you are using Chrome, there may be a setting that got over written in your preferences, or perhaps you downloaded a plug in with a unintended back door addition. I'll PM you for the details.

Edit for addition of the following:

    Open Chrome.
    At the top right, click More Settings.
    At the bottom, click Advanced.
    Under “Reset and clean up,” click Clean up computer.
    Click Find.
    If you're asked to remove unwanted software, click Remove. You may be asked to reboot your computer.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Looking for my dads old 69 GT-350
« on: February 04, 2020, 05:57:27 AM »
Well VIN ending in 404 is a GT500
1404 is a GT500, 2404 is a red car so something is not correct in your clues?

My mistake 0404 is the last 4 I already know what’s in the registry about the car. Now I just need to the person that had it for sale. Or a person that has a great memory and remembers it for sale and who was selling it.

Mongo (68-70 SAAC Registrar) will chime in, or you can PM him here. If anyone knows, he will. Send him your contact information along with a request that he forward it to the current owner if he has that information. This way it is then up to the current owner to reach out to you if they so desire, and the sanctity of the registry is left intact.

Misc. For Sale / MOVED: 1966/67 Shelby 427SC Owners manual
« on: January 30, 2020, 05:38:59 AM »

Hi, I am looking for information on a 1993 Cobra that was formally owned by Johnny Lightning from 1995-2008. It is supposedly a experimental color of Vibrant Red that was maybe going to be used on the Cobra R? there were supposedly only 5 made and all were to be crushed but 2 made it out alive lol, Johnny's was one of them and I own it now. Looking for a man named Jason Venjeck? Vencheck? Venjek? not sure of the spelling, he is a former employee at SVT and I believe a higher up employee. Or anyone that worked at SVT at that time or maybe even Ford that might know any info on this. This car could possibly be a one of two and I don't know where the other one is or if it still is around. It has been inside pretty much its whole life and only has 48k original miles of which the original owner of 2 years put 24k on it. Thanks in advance for any help. Brent


    You may want to post this on the svtperformance site. As for the color, the choice of Vibrant Red was chosen almost 3 months before the production of the 93 Cobra and 93 "R" started. Color spray-out tests occurred on several vehicles, usually base Mustang coupes, and did include at least 1 F150 that was also used as a crash test vehicle at a later date.
