  I see header collectors and glass packs/side exit tailpipes too.

Thanx to the fine work of SAAC registrars, I was able to connect with the original owner of our 68KR.

I have been chatting with him on and off for the past few years, and sharing with him many photos from our past 28 years of stewardship.

The gentleman bought the car new and had it for two years at which time he traded it in on a 1970 Boss 302 (He traded a 66 K-code coupe to get the KR).

Sadly, Mike (the original owner had no photos or paperwork to share, just his memory.

Until a couple of days ago, when I opened my inbox and found this email from him.

The photo is from the winter of 1968 in Spokane, which was the worst winter in 50 years, with so much snow, that drivers would put red flags on their antennas so other drivers could see them coming from the other side of the snow banks.

I was thrilled to get this picture from him, and hopefully, he finds some others that have been hidden away...

My high school pal Phil (L) and me, cruising the town we grew up in (Culver City, CA).  The pastrami at Johnnie's is still as great as ever, too. Nothing has changed about Johnnie's since it opened in 1952.

Phil is the Editorial Director of NHRA's publications, including National Dragster.

According to Marti, it was shipped new there to Northwestern. If I understand correctly, it was sold new at Jack Loftus Ford on 4-28-1969. I bought it in '72 in Alabama at a used car dealership.

Very nice, its possible Northwestern sold it to Loftus or traded it.

I have stories on both dealerships on my website.

I've visited your site on many occasions. Nice! I'll looking to get it restored. Do you know of reputable shops in the SE USA?
