Here's is a pic from that FB page you would find interesting Pete.

The text with the post just says "March 1968". From a local newspaper I would guess. Maybe you can track it down.

I will put the word out for a restored Hertz G.

And I will look for your reply - easier to discuss the counter card over PM.

Hey Steve -

I PM'd you but don't know if you saw it.

Do you have one of these counter cards from 1968?

Very scary - the smoke is even impacting us here on the east coast in Virginia.

Fingers crossed the weather change will help.

1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Re: Bunkie Knudson's Boss 9 lost

^^^ that was a fascinating read, thanks for the link Mike.

Of course, it was a Cougar Eliminator hood scoop, not an XR-7 (hood scoops were not a part of the XR-7 package).

According to Charlie Henry's Kar-Kraft book, that first owner contacted Kar-Kraft because of a cylinder head problem, but because it was a prototype with cast-iron heads they were unserviceable.

Cool stuff.

I did an illustration of that Roush Mustang that I've used on a couple of posters I designed.

This thread is also an example of how the record can be set straight.

Now if the concept drawings for what ultimately became the XR7-G would just turn up!

Thanks Rich (and Brian Styles, who I have been emailing with behind the scenes).

Original renderings, concept drawings plus advertising/marketing materials are of particular interest to me.

Pretty sure the airbrush was around (airbrushed t-shirts became popular in the early '60s) but to my eye (and this is only my opinion) the changes to the signed artwork on the bottom look digital.

Looks to have been made on a copy of the 5-26-66 art, not an original piece of art.

Here is the one image I have in my files (can't remember where I snatched it from) that is labelled as by Mr. McHose.

I apologize - brain is a bit foggy this morning (not quite thru my first cup of coffee).

What conclusion are you drawing?

Both the prints that Chun's son is selling and the original artwork that sold at the Atzbach auction are attributed to John Chun.

Original art is dated 5-26-66 and print (slightly altered version of the original art) is dated 3-67, which I assume is when the art was altered?

I've found putting a portion of a caramel cube in a snap trap is more effective than peanut butter.

Very sticky, so the mice really need to work at getting it, setting off the trap.

Also, mice run along the edges of walls, using their whiskers to feel their way, so place the traps with the bait side up against a wall where you think they are active.
