SAAC-44 / Re: Anything to eat or drink there?
« on: February 08, 2019, 08:54:23 AM »
I am very thankful for the effort people put into organizing and running the event. I have only been to the last two. Really enjoyed both. Organizers helped me with any questions I had. I do not plan on missing any more events. Missed way too many. I drive in so I bring food and drinks with me. If anyone has the time they may contact a food truck or two. To see if they would be interested in setting up at the event.

Try to keep it drivable, so you can enjoy it. I would definitely replace the wiring. It could cause a fire.

kjspeed neat on all the trophies. I looked it up in the last registry. I really like the fact that it has been running the open track events. I hope to meet you at SAAC 44 if you are going. Thank you for the information. I am looking forward to the Willwood part numbers.

TJinSA AWESOME Shelby.

kjspeed that is an AWESOME!!!!! car. Love the modifications that I can see. I have always liked the Daisy wheels. Which Wilwood disc brake kit do you have and will your 10 spokes fit with them? What event are the stickers from? Do you mind sharing with us the number of your Shelby?

TJinSA the engine is 1/2 of an inch back and 3/4 of an inch down. This has the shifter within 1/16 of the center of shifter hole in trans tunnel.

WedgeMan I love the pick of the 67 on the drag strip.

     I agree we do not want to run anyone off. Either concours or modified. I think we are in need of a thread where non concours car owners can discuss there cars and modifications. I love going to the shows and seeing both groups of cars, along with the survivors.
     Personally I would rather drive mine and use it for track days. So that is how I am restoring mine. It is a 68 GT350 number 1236 originally an acapulco blue, Hertz without AC. I bought the car in August of 1993. The person I bought my car off of purchased it in the Fall of 1978. He purchased it off of a car lot in the Denver Colorado area. Someone previous to this installed a 4 speed top loader and Koni adjustable rear shocks. They all so cut the fender lips and bent them up for extra tire clearance. You could not tell this by just looking at the car. They even keep on the fender lip trim. (If anyone has previous information about 1236 please let me know). The original engine and transmission were long gone before I bought the car. The owner before me did not modify the car at all. He thought the car was originally a 4 speed. I am not doing anything that can not be returned. (Except factory runs and drips on underside of car.) I am fortunate that my car's frame rails, torque boxes and floor pans are rust free. Since I want to track my car days I am installing a 351W with a 3550 5 speed. I have fabricated engine mounts to lower the engine and set it back, so I do not have to modify the transmission tunnel to install the 5 speed. This also helps the center of gravity. I have totally stripped the underside of car and epoxy primered it. Now seam sealing car. Trying to do a really clean job of seam sealing. I do not get to work on the car every week, so this is taking awhile. Lots of custom fabrication to come including custom headers for engine relocation. I will add updates and pictures as I make progress.

Getting back to the initial question at hand, I'd like to see a forum specifically for those that campaign their GT350/GT500/Mach 1.
In fact if there is anyone on SAAC that races either SVRA,HSR or SCCA I'd like to know as well.

Or better yet maybe a Hot street car- Day 2 performance car- Drag car- Road racer- Vintage race car - modern anything race car. This way we would have a place to go and leave the others alone that have the correct paint drips, daubs, finishes, textures, etc. After all that's what these cars were intended to do in the first place. ;)

This is what I am thinking.

Not every car needs to be 100% stock to be enjoyed.

I much prefer period correct day 2 cars, tho I appreciate what it takes to have one assembly line perfect.


I agree with this.

Thanks Pete.
 I should have been more specific.
 Is SMS the only one that sales the vinyl sections that are not comfort weave?
