I can certainly take a peek when I get home. I'm trying to recall if there is any size information on the inside of the helmets or not. They all have the blue foam insert on the inside top.

They come in 4 colors. Red, Blue, Silver and White. They pop up on Ebay quite frequently in varying conditions. You can also try searching for Alpinestar and Mchal helmet.

ok, so who's the seller. Sold many little Shelby related items recently. In Manchester Connecticut. Looks like a large display case in the back of the first image. Cleaning house?  8)

How about the enjoyment factor. If you buy the car and can't enjoy it, or it's uncomfortable to drive, why have it. If putting in air makes you drive it more and increases the enjoyment factor, who cares about what you sell it. You only live once and unless you're buying a concourse blue chip car it shouldn't matter. Buy what you like, drive it how you like. That's my 2 cents.  Did that with my 66. Did the mods that I enjoy, not what the value it will bring down the road-

I remember that day well, cold and crappy. I asked Mark Hovander when they move it back to the trailer to let me know so I could video the sound. He did, someone tracked me down and they waited till I got back to record it. That was a very "cool" day!  8)

I agree with the forum only available to active members. It will cut down on the nonsense and trolling. Keep it in the family so to speak. If you're a problem, you're out. Seems like a simple solution. Might also help the old revenue stream to the club. If you're too cheap to keep your membership, then i'm guessing what you have to say on the forum isn't constructive.

Pete has also kindly sent me what I was looking for awhile back at n/c. Can't let the real guys with real information go-

What if you did something totally outside of the box and rented a smaller facility that we would have total control of. In a location that doesn't demand top dollar. So then the club could dictate what it wanted to do. From the vintage races, to open track for the less skilled drivers and tours or destination drives. Then the car show on concourse could be held without distraction and evening presentations would be easy to find accommodations as this would be the only thing happening at the time.

Just a thought. Might be like the early conventions when we didn't have to piggy back anything. More time to talk to your fellow enthusiast. More ability to have centralized activities. More of a grass roots convention.

I get it, not in a prime location with other things to do, however we are there to see and drive the cars. You could pick something smack dab in the middle of the US like....

And it doesn't have to be in the middle of no where either. You just need to pick a smaller track that doesn't demand a lot of money or attention-

Here's a good look at an original car for a visual. I was curious after Bob's explanation to visualize it-
