Here we go again, the left coast is being battered by the virus, have friends layed up in skilled nursing homes set up just to handle the cases that are choking our hospital systems. Doesnt seem so fun to take my ride out for a spin or tinker around on it when others are laid up with moon suits on. Anyways back to the cars, Did ANY of the 67s get deluxe wheel well trim from the factory or is that an owner installed (extra).

To my understanding - none of the production run Shelby's. (might have been on development/prototypes)

The rioting left are responsible for the spike, not opening businesses who follow guidelines.  Everyone who is susceptible is going to get this. It's certainly not the killer they claimed and most who contract it are asymptomatic.

Try telling that minimize observation to the family's of the people who have died because of Covid 19 and see how you feel about it then .

Well, are you up in arms because Pneumonia and the common flu far exceeded Covid? 
Every life matters to me. However, I am not going to cower at home.  I am not minimizing any death. I feel for those that lost loved ones.
The numbers are inflated, and the gloom and doom is not what they scared the hell out of people with. Of course the only family member I lost was in NY and because that Idiot Cuomo put prisoners in elderly homes to recover. 
You know what I was saying, and I am thankful it wasn't what they predicted. Remember, I served this nation and I love her more than anything. 
I'm not out trying to destroy our heritage and institute socialism like these worthless anarchist. They want to jail people for not wearing mask but if you're Antifa or a rioter the Dems give you free rein with their blessing. By all means lets let them act out like spoiled hateful children while those in the age groups. Rioting is not protected under the 1st amendment. 
Sorry you read something into what I said that wasn't there. There's no one that will be more enthralled when the world returns to some semblance of normality.  God speed.

Since the entire planet is dealing with a pandemic. it might be better to have its own thread for such topic...  Not my car thread. Thanks in advance!

You mean the "ghost car" ? This thread was about 65 pages long on the old forum. If you can use a cell phone you can sure the hell post pictures. It's really not that hard.

Back to the topic at hand....have you hit 176 MPH ?????
  My car gets to about 140 - 145mph quickly and easily but I have nothing else to go buy except the speedo, which maxes out in that range. It is in street trim- Tires, gearing, stance, NO REAL roll bar , drive shaft safety loop, original wheels etc. I dont feel with this set up it would be wise to push it much further until more safety enhancements are installed. I am making progress, albeit slow progress. :)

Since you had initially stated in your original mission statement "goal 176 MPHs" Inquiring minds wanted to know.

It is achievable with the proper combination.

Not that we support or condone (We have never ever broken the posted speed limit and we have Mrs Cleaver as our witness) anyone to exceed any posted speed limits

But if it should  happen be aware of all the grannies, pansies, Sunday drivers,  the occasional trailer queens out on the roads being loaded into trailers (lmao)

Wishing you much success on your project and remember....like John says be happy !

No Children, Grandmas, Household pets, or Men with underdeveloped sacs were any where near us at the time of testing. ;D No laws were broken it was a dedicated stretch of land for testing performance vehicles. 176 MPH is the number I want to achieve, now its a matter of how the ORIGINAL car was set up to replicate that, but if I need to to upgrade safety equipment to get there I see that as no harm no foul. I am not a young dude anymore... Safety First!
