Royal Kreiger drove it to SAAC 1 in Oakland. If I remember it was silver then and called the Pelican. It really wasn't a hero drive since he lived nearby.

Some computer image software will convert photos to look like they are a drawing. I think Corel Draw will will let you apply different filters to an image depending on what you want.

I'm looking for a Russ Davis Ford or Foulger Ford frame. Most CA dealers didn't use script just frames.

Didn't Belanger weld a little tag on all their headers with their name on them?

When it came down to Shelby, TOO MANY decisions were just made on a cost basis as a minimal way to satisfy the criteria that Ford had assigned to Shelby with this project?
Simple business practices. Save $10 on 500 cars and he put an extra $5000 in his pocket.

Anybody know what driving credentials qualify as Intermediate and Advanced? Driving schools? Number of HPDE events? Racing experience?
Usually you pick your own run group since you know your/car ability.

acknowledgement for those that have been around for years and years instead of just starting everyone over in my opinion
Do the SAAC membership lists exist from 1975 onwards?

From what I understand, no. There wasn't any point in keeping track of who used to be a member back then. Membership lists were just updated periodically and basically used for mailing out the newsletter/magazine.

If you expired, you didn't get one 'cause you weren't on the list anymore.

As a matter of fact it might be that it took 30 years before Rick figured something might be going on? OK, OK...maybe 25 years?  :)
I think he figured out right away what it felt like to be babysitting a bunch of misfits. His stint as a continuation high school teacher probably helped.

I really appreciate the feedback gentlemen! I hadn't given a thought to the mags not passing tech because of age. I did check for cracks but wasn't aware that magnesium got more brittle with age. So....
When I was crewing on 5R001 I sprayed a wheel to clean it and saw a neat row of bubbles coming out of a crack that went all the way around the spoke. These had been crack checked about 6 months earlier.

Having a family member from the inner circle of ford execs in the 1960s-70s , he ran North America Parts division. I can tell you it is brutal at the top
Very true my uncle ran the Cleveland engine plant. He always liked how he was away from the daily back stabbing politics of Dearborn.

Shelby reactivated his mfg license in the 80s whe he teamed up with Beverly Hills Mustang to build 12 more 66 GT350 cinvertibles. 4 for CS, 4 for BHM and 4 to sell to pay for the whole run. CA required that 95% of the car be new for DMV to recognize them as newly manufactured cars.
6S843 was registered in CA as a GT350 CPE. I got a no smog pump ticket and took the owners manual (with the CA smog exemption letter in it) to the judge that along with the fact that the cop wrote Ford as make on the ticket got it dismissed.

8 to 10 cars would be great but my driveway is narrow though it is long.
When we hosted COCOA BBQS the Cobras got parked on the lawn and the Shelbys in the driveway or on the street. The guy up the street is a die hard Chevy drag racer (Has an original COPO Camaro he bought new in 69). He was working on the Police Departments drag car at the time so burn outs were blessed and encouraged.

Great placement with the trunk lettering - but I doubt she is shy.

SAAC-43 / Re: General Convention Info Wanted

Hit Google maps and check out the hotel parking to see if it's suitable for truck & trailer parking. If you park/unload at the hotel look for a spot you can put the car back in the trailer for the night for added security. Most conventions will have SAAC members bench racing in the parking lots way into the wee hours - much later than crooks like to stay up for an easy score.
