These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Terrific Fiberfab ad Chris.

Don't think I've ever seen the "Jamaican" before. I think that has potential!

First time I've noticed the "Simulated Mag" wheel covers in the 1970 Lincoln-Mercury Accessories brochure.

Kinda surprising I've never ever seen those on a Cougar.

Cobra.  Original artwork from early 80's.  Responded to ad in early Shelby American mag of the times.

Wow, that's nice. I can see the artist name at the LR tire, but can't read it.

Artist is Ed Gullett, Fayettville, Georgia. He was very active in SAAC for years. Did a lot of illustrations
for Rick and the club and always had a tent with a lot of originals and prints at the swap meets. Great guy.

   One for  propayne    Mercury Cougar, not sure if this was a Ford piece, maybe something from the design studio ? ?

Thanks Mike - that is a cool example of vintage car art.

I have a series of those Cougar concept paintings copied from when they were originally posted (can't remember when or where) and I have them saved as by Dean Beck - so I assume he is the artist.

Here is one I really love featuring very stylized art of a '70 Cyclone.

Oh well - It's old artwork but unpublished plus I want to have my Shelby posts keep up with my Cougar posts.

This is something I did while in high school - all kinds of funky things going on (I didn't even know how to use oval templates then so the tires and wheels are farged up). Plus I put LeMans stripes on it!

But -

It proves I've been a long time Shelby fan even though Mercury Cougars are my #1.
