So that's your reply? 

You don't want to create solutions, just keep things the way they are?

If that is the consensus, I will offer it in my next presentation.

Reached out to the most knowledgeable Shelby group for guidance after my last sale but they weren't interested to assist.

By the way, I'm not trying to win.

You seem to be looking for some sort of a medal? Save your effort. We don't do that here but we do know how to deal with trolls and if you keep pushing it you could be declared one and suffer the consequences.

You are not winning friends here. Don't you have something else to do?

Jeff, what are you the Dr. Phil of Shelby automobiles?
No Dr. Phil was an opinionated ass who doesnít really know what heís talking about.
Jeff on the other hand has more knowledge in his finger tip than most people on this forum could accumulate in a lifetime

You've made your position very clear, no need to vote more than once.  I'm hanging around for consensus.

The voting results have been counted. We don't do recounts here.

First off, Iíd like to welcome Scott as well.  You will soon realize who the clicky high school bullies are here and I suspect you are realizing already.  If you donít agree with them and kiss there narcissist butts, your flagged and stoned to death.

Secondly, I wish the comment about ďthis site needing an enemaĒ wasnít deleted.  It holds so true to all the higher than thou attitudes here and we all know who Iím talking about. 

There are some very good points made here by many.  What does it matter what a car sold for?  2 people really wanted this black on black 68 500KR and were willing to pay what they felt was a fair price to them.  Cars of all types sell high and low everyday.  There are great days in the market for some and bad days for some.  Itís business.

Why isnít anyone concerned and asking what bobís 1967 Shelby GT350 #0001 just recently sold for?!  Maybe he got to much for his car also!

Yeah, I know first hand what an A-Hole came over here to attack me for doing the Shelby Poker Chips to help get a Nonprofit I started off the ground (Hawks Friends)...Ö.I don't think he has been back since (only 8 Posts).  Still doing the Poker Chips though.

There is a big smokescreen going on here because of everybodyís name calling and trying to make it seem like the Concours crowd is a bunch of elitist. The truth of the matter is the car has some very suspicious things about it. The dash the fact that thereís no tilt away hole in the a pillar plus a lot of very suspicious looking welds in the front bulkhead area it would be a disservice not to point this out to any perspective buyer. Re-bodies are real they exist there are even people here on the forum that have done them and they should be exposed for what they are. Itís not narcissistic itís not out of spite itís just called integrity

Mr Lea is correct.

People are trying to make it about the money. Newsflash its not the first car to sell for that kind of money.

It's about the car.

Fact: The seller didnt show up here or contact SAAC until after the criticism started.

Unfortunately, integrity is lost on so many.

When should I show up for sentencing?

One of my more interesting observations through the years, loudest forum voices have no real names presented.

Completely off topic (haven't been keeping up with this thread or even taken a look at the car in question) but just wanted to interject that I've very much enjoyed your content on Obsessed Garage. Fun to watch your work.

Kind regards,

It looked to me like this thread did start out about the out-of- the-ordinary price paid for such a car that was not 100% correct and quickly spiraled into more. The seller did mention a few times in his comments that he reached out to an ďexpertĒ or two for advise and even offered to pay for their time to assess the car, but received no reply back to assist him.  Who exactly did he reach out to?  It sounds like the seller tried to do his due diligence before selling the car. 

There would definitely be an issue for a buyer and seller of any car if the car has been re-bodied or fraudulently and knowingly mis-represented (I am not making any accusations about this particular GT500KR because I have never examined it in person or had any interest in it).  As Mr. Lea stated, ďRe-bodies are real they exist there are even people here on the forum that have done them and should be exposed for what they areĒ.  I agree that anyone who is guilty of this and knowingly represents a car for what it really isn't should be publicly exposed along with the car itself so the next seller/buyer are aware of what the car really is.  We do not need people like this in the hobby.

It certainly is unfortunate that the integrity of some of these cars is lost by "armchair critics".  When something on a car is in question, it may deserve an in person inspection by an expert to answer and/or disqualify any assumptions made about the car.

Just my 2 cents.
