I really get a kick out of the restored cars. It's like a time warp to me. What ever Shelby fixer-upper I get, it will go back to stock. If it had a/c, it will get a/c, etc. I think it will be a lot of fun and scuffed knuckles taking it from forlorn to nearly-new or like-new again. I wonder what color code it will have? Can't wait. I may have to refinance the house to get one or if I'm smart, wait until I have enough in the bank. Responsibility stinks sometimes.  ::)  :-\
Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

Took my 69 GT350 out for a photo op today. Sunset and leaves turning were perfect. My professional photographer, aka wife, captured this beauty shot.  I love the symmetry of colors between the side stripe and trees.

4-spd, non AC car.

Great cars, these '69-'70 models. I think I am now inspired to fully restore my first Shelby. They look so clean. Nice cars, everyone. I like them all, especially the Grabber colors and the Silver Jade and the Gulfstream Aqua! I'd love to find one with a white interior and a white top. Umm, umm, umm.

Don't do it!!!!!!  Keep your car as it is. If you restore it you won't want to drive it, I enjoy my driver quality cars way more then the two done cars that I am afraid to drive around Los Angeles. The people that now occupy California have zero respect for anything it's like living in the third world.

 :o  Hmm . . . .  :-\ Well, but I love how the restored engine bays look. So clean and tidy. I'd like to have some new carpet. I can forego refurbishing the undercarriage, but I would like to have some new shocks.

Do a good engine detail, do the interior you will be happy. I just did that to my 70 boss 302 mustang and what a difference!
