Up For Auction / Rare Don Prudhomme Shelby Poster

I have no connection to this poster. I do recall there was a posting awhile back with a few looking for this hard to find poster. Here is the link. Buy It Now option.

The Lounge / Re: What will The Bullitt Mustang sell for?

Looks like the Bullitt is on page 7 of 12. So what time would that put that going across the block. I have not been watching the auction daily and was hoping one of you might be able to ballpark it. Wanted to keep it on the radar to watch online today.

It's lot 150

If you are truly interested in bidding on the car PM me. As it was in our garage for those 22 years..... however i'm not interested in fielding questions in the public forum.

They are the purple GoJacks. The 5000lb version. I did not use the bigger ones that accommodate the wider tires. The normal sized Gojacks worked fine.

Funny you should ask that question.I just had to problem solve that exact thing. As you can see there is no way I could park the trailer that close to the wall. I used 2 GoJacks on the rear wheels of the trailer and one dolly type thing I found at Menards. They came in packs of 2 and it works fabulous for the post of the trailer. The GoJacks were able to lift both the wheels off the ground in the back and it slid right into place.

Minilites on a 65. I have to say I have never seen that and like the look. More of a trans am feel on a 65. Nice. I have always liked those on the Boss 302's and even the 69-70. nicely done and the last image gives a great comparison on old and new-

Picture shows it's torn. No description of that in the text. Easy to gloss over that in all the excitement of the shirt. These are very cool shirts-

Vintage Shelby Related Literature and Collectibles / Re: Shelby helmet

You can also search for McHal helmets as well. Sometimes they pop up in that search as the seller assumes that's what they are. With the Shelby sticker usually off they don't know what they have.

( corrected )

This Jacket? 53335 tag. No Flag.

Those are plentiful on Ebay. The originals have the round Talon zipper and square Ford logo. Good jackets for wearing around. Come in all different colors. Red, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Black,Gold, Brown etc. Not very valuable as there are so many out there.

I'd love to wear my T-shirts, however I'm 6'3" and wear an XL. When you find a rare shirt that's 50+ years old you can't be picky about the size. Not one of my shirts would fit, however the "Big Shirt" would as it was like a 2XL with extra length straight from the factory. Might look a bit strange wearing it though, as that was not how it was intended to be worn.

As we all know also, shirts for back then are much smaller. A mens Large is certainly no the same size as it is today.

I hear ya on wearing the shirt, however you can't repaint, restore or replace a sleeve on a shirt like you can a car-

ok, just found this thread.

I was posed with this same question about 10years ago. I had a Don Prudhomme Super Snake shirt that had a large yellow water stain on it. Looked horrible and had some yellowing from age. I bit the bullet and found a big tupperware plastic container big enough for the dirt. I used some warm water and mixed in a bit of Oxy Clean. I let it sit overnight and then hand rinsed the shirt to remove the oxyclean with cold water. I then neatly hand rung the water out and laid it flat on a towel on a flat surface. Let it air dry and low and behold...... it looks NOS.

Not for the faint of heart but I gambled and I think the results speak for themselves. I have done it with 2 other shirts ( GT350 ) and have had success. Just another option if the staining is not to your liking. I figured it's been washed when it was new.....

The Lounge / Favorite Movie Cars. Non-Shelby
« on: September 18, 2019, 05:08:25 PM »
I thought it might be interesting to go off the reservation and see who else has a favorite move car that wasn't a Shelby. I've always been a Shelby guy with a soft spot for the Trans Am as it was my first car as a kid. Smokey and the Bandit and Hooper come to mind. But the car that has always intrigued me was the Cuda from Phantasm. That movie was crazy. I can still remember the scary tall guy stopping on the street to feel the cold air coming from the refrigeration truck or something like that.

Anyway, that Cuda has always been at the top of my list for "other" "non-shelby" cars. Who else has a favorite-
