Interesting that total auction sales at Scottsdale were down 3 percent according to Hemmings:

Good stuff fellas......

BTW.......my 69 hood was badly bowed with stock springs........removed springs........put towels on both sides of hood

Put 2 -40 lb bags of potting soil on top.........left car outside in 95 degree heat all day and now hood is perfectly flat

Thereís a good reason why itís 1of 3 in the WORLD

No springs here either (original hood & fenders)
I use a short piece of chain between the spring mounting points on the hinges, holds the hood open great!
I'm sure there is a cleaner/nicer way to do it but NO SPRINGS!!


Got a picture?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: New owner of KR convertible

The dealer that sold the car at the Mechum auction was from OKlahoma. I bought it from the guy that bought it at the auction. Care to elaborate on the sad outcome?  I am now very curious of all the tainted history of this car.  I guess I am the new poster child.
I have been dealing with Mustangs since early 80ís. Just have never come across a dishonest Mustanger before. I guess this is just a different game at a different level.

would this be your car that sold at Mecum in 2011?.....sold as a replica.....different stripes........

i am just a little bystander here but have owned many Mustangs, muscle cars, old trucks etc since 1977.....

bottom line for the owner here....

CORALSNAKE is an expert on 1968 Shelbys as he just told you....and is well known

the VIN number and this discussion is now public on the internet so the story is known to all.....

my 2 cent advise is to call the guy up you traded with and get your Vette back............if you say you will never sell ( doubt it there comes a time to let go of everything) then whomever is left holding this car will go down in flames.....you don't want to do that to a friend or relative do you?
