Boy, 20 years goes by quickly..

Congratulations for you unrelenting effort that make The Coralsnake the Best 1968 Shelby website on the internet.


Is it safe to assume you will not be adding a favourite movie or corvette section anytime soon?

If this isn't the primary reason for the forum, then what is?

The primary reason for the Forum, as stated in my post, is to provide a community for like-minded friends that want to talk, ask, listen or just hang out together.
The subforums try and give a "room" for any interest... specific, general, social or just for fun

       To ANYONE who doesn't appreciate the above statement , you DO NOT HAVE to come here ! YOU have the choice I guarantee you. MANY of us enjoy it here and use it AS STATED above. Sure sometimes we have to endure an occasional clash of EGOs but "I" feel some of that is due to the medium we communicate with on ANY forum. I have met MANY of the people  on this forum in person and am able to "filter" responses based on having met them face to face. Changed? Yes I see more clashes among members than before the crash. If a person goes to a forum intent on changing it to what THEY want , "I" suggest they start their own.
 "I" for one am VERY thankful Ron has provided this opportunity for anyone ( even non owners) to enjoy. From the looks above this post , others agree.

OK, well now we’re getting somewhere. Clarification.

Just so I understand correctly, the primary reason for the forum is NOT the cars, it’s for socializing?

Please feel free to correct me if I have misinterpreted this.

Thanks Ron

Well discussed and answered by many members above...

...but worth a fast note....

You state: " SAAC is not living up to it's purpose" ..I'll take exception to that.

SAAC Forum is a free COMMUNITY for members and non members alike. Several of us spend quite a lot of time and virtual capital to maintain and run this Forum.
It is not a direct pipe to the core, but rather a comfortable place to discuss any and all things related to our cars.
It is not a vending machine where you insert a question and get an immediate reply.

Consider it a large room with friends that come and go.. some just read, some always give their two cents.
We even created the Lounge to allow non-specific non-car related conversation... since most folks are human and enjoy non-tech talk at times.

Bill and I spend loads of behind the scenes energy to quietly sort posts to the correct areas.. to help make sense and order out of the posts.

Sorry you didn't get an instant answer... maybe try asking again in a few days after an original post with crickets.

...but don't bash SAAC for not supporting our mission... the Forum is just one part of the effort.

Thanks
Ron

You don't have to convince me the forum has changed. I know very little about 1967s, and I am thinking there is a reason why you didnt ask your questions on Facebook, the movie forum, a political forum or the piano forum? If I could answer your questions, what would be my in incentive to wade through all that garbage?

I have been suggesting change for years, so welcome to the new forum. The people who want a social experience (not a car forum) are winning, so enjoy the lounge.

You have to love that deep candy apple red.

You are probably having more fun than most of us during social distancing. I kind a wish my car was still apart so I could work on it 20 hours a day. Enjoy yourself this is definitely the best time.

Posted this on another thread for Milo, thought you might like to have a look.



My 302 doesn't look like that? I like all the striped hoses but I must have screwed up?

No, they slipped in a GT-500 photo.   ::)

Geez, a guy makes a mistake and he never hears the end of it. LOL

Thanks Ed. I think you or Bob might’ve mentioned that the first time around. I should explain this picture above and some other ones I posted on another thread were originally posted for all of you to critique before I installed the motor. There are more than likely a few errors in some of the photos.

Pete, sorry my bad I should’ve noticed that :-\

This is what I was able to find quickly.

Let me know if you need something specific and I can look through what I have.

IIRC these were from a group of photos I posted for everyone to critique before I installed it in the car.

If you would prefer Hi-res I can always email you.

Leave the booster out. Notice the use of cardboard and foam rubber matting.

She's tight but it fits.

Have a look at this while I find a few pictures for you.
