Can anyone identify two of the guys in the photo of the gold GT. The one on the left, without shirt looks like Mark Smith, and the third one to his right looks like George Paul, to me. I know that they were there for this convention. Ron
Original owner of 6S550. Owned since 1967. 64,000 Miles, all body original except hood and front valance. All glass original except windshield. Still has aluminum 4 speed. Has replacement Mico.  Also own 1966 Mustang convertible. They are drivers, not trailer queens.

Amazing, driving them, parking in the grass, no chains or barriers.
I bet some people even drove them there  8)
Owned since 1971, driven over 238,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

This is where I first saw this poster. Still have one in the Autodrome, a little worse for wear.

Looks like it could be the same car in the poster

What are those vent scoops on the rear quarters?
 ???

Yes, cool car AND poster. Same car. I was fortunate to hitch a ride in that car with one of the Jones(?) brothers. I'll never forget it.
