Stephan or Rich,
Can you please circle, or draw an arrow to, the windshield crack?  It still looks like glare or distortion to me.

Love the twisties!
But, I think you have your tach's redline set a bit too low.

What I meant was a Cobra 427.  The ad seems to be from 1966. 


You could LEASE a Cobra???  If true, there's gotta be some entertaining stories about those cars.

You're the man, Bob.

As are Pete and Dan and Jeff and Randy and Tim and Rich and all the rest of the ultra-informed SAAC gang. 

I've learned a ton from each of you.  We don't all need to be concours guys to appreciate what you share of your vast knowledge. 

For me, fun with Shelby cars includes all the stats, specs, parts, pieces, time-lines, photos, personal experiences, history, and obscure details!

Keep it rolling,

Or they "learned all about it"  at a popular televised auction.

Cool license plate.  Price seems very reasonable, if it's the real deal.

If you look at the style of buckle/clasp in the illustration on the mat it looks like the later 70's up variety and not the one used in the 60's .

That's what I thought, Bob.   A three-point belt with one buckle, not the separate lap and shoulder belts from earlier.

Looks to me like the women are fresh off of Shelby's secret assembly line for Stepford Stewardesses.

Put it in a trashcan and have the fastest, most powerful dumpster ever.

Not confronting, just asking:
Wouldn't the "three-point seatbelt" drawing on the Ford lightbulb logo make the timeframe of that particular paper floormat be much later than '66?  More like mid-70s or later?

Rukiddin: What year is your car?

Thanks for the additional analysis.  Yes, that is definitely Imperial Hwy in the background (south side) of the Chevron gas pump photos. 

That photo appears it was shot with a long lens, so the apartments in the background may seem close, but they are on the far side of Imperial.

My guess as to why Miles was in a suit would most likely be for a visit by Ford execs, dealers or the press.  Or his wife made him.

I agree 100%. It was and still is a very big country with many people doing same job differently. As far as me being interested in where /how that tape was applied to the cars I serviced.......just drilled in after a while. Try to remember that I was 20-21 years old back then and had many,many things on my mind...military draft....Viet Nam,girls,race cars,girls, etc. Some things just are etched in my mind.........girls are way ahead of sticky tape memories  :P

Cool Galaxie XL.  429?

Excellent use of Texas bugs!  Nice memories for your friend, too.
