Bruce Willis Shelby
« on: February 19, 2020, 10:00:53 PM »
I just read where Bruce Willis owned a 1968 Shelby GT 500 that he recently sold for $161,000.  Who owns it now?

In Jay Leno's words: You sell stock. You never sell your Shelby. I wish I could find that clip where he says it while driving his 65. They took it off YouTube a while back.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Here's the blog post that quotes Leno but the videos are conveniently removed.

Is the green convertible with a green top Bruce Willis car?

You obviously are not a green person. Neither am I for that matter but that appears to be Highland Green with saddle interior. It was popular enough. Perhaps too popular?

Lime probably was more popular but it was the '60s and it went better with the blue and white striped bell bottoms and orange shirt. I don't think pink framed glasses had appeared as of yet? My memory is "hazy".

"They" tell me it was "drugs, sex and rock and roll"?  8)

Topless is always better.

Actually you can do worse. Someone in the past made "snake skin tops".

I find that you don't even need a convertable to ride around with the top down all day. Just not in Florida. You can get burned to a crisp. Then YOU will have snake skin.
