SAAC 43 photo thread
« on: August 07, 2018, 11:29:15 AM »
Since the other "It has Begun - SAAC 43" thread has transformed in a poster thread...It's a good time to start an official SAAC 43 picture thread.

I found many good photos over on the "Club Cobra" site with much thanks to Jeff Gagnon who posted so many great photos!
csx2027 and csx3018 were both nice surprises. The "Al Unser Jr" '65 R model has me scratching my head.

I almost purchased CSX2027 for $3500 and my car 6S1431 in 1972 or 73. Car had 14,000 miles on it
Didn’t have a roof or heater so I said no
Still kicking myself
Owned since 1971, driven over 236,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Thanks Jim,
It didn't match up with anything in my "R" model files. Looks like a nice car.


Hey Steve,
That no heat, no roof deal breaker has to sting a bit. At least your enjoying your '66 Hertz to the fullest these days with both of the creature comforts.

Does anyone know this car? I am trying to identify the VIN and confirm the license plates as original first issue.

Great pair!


I thought t he drag racing was cancelled?
Here's a video clip of all the various cars old and new going down the track.
A '67 vs '68 at about 10:30 (need help to ID the Brittany Blue '67) The '67 has slicks...

         Rich,
        It obviously not cancelled . It was "cut back" to 1 hour and 40 minutes ( plenty of time as it turned out) . Only the "big show"  (money race) portion was cancelled. Mainly due to the "mufflers only" required for the first time.  I will see if I can organize it for a "MID" year event next year where open exhaust IS allowed.

The noise restriction provisions are stupid.
