Title: Buddy Belzerís 65 GT350ís
Post by: mustang6473 on January 17, 2022, 11:07:45 PM
Back in 1990/1991 I was a sophomore in College and went to a car museum in Spearfish SD.  There was  65 Street and 65 R model owned by Buddy Belzer.   I remember speaking with the person working at the museum that morning and she said he was a local guy that was a private racer.   I see he currently is listed as owner of #11 and 236 in the current registry.

I would love to hear more about his cars, involvement and racing.  Just curious if he is an active member or if some others have more history on him in the Shelby world?

Thanks, Scott

I haven't seen him in more then a few years . Great guy IMO.  He kind of dropped out of sight. I suppose you could call him ?   https://home.wellsfargoadvisors.com/buddy.belzer

Spoke w Buddy a couple of weeks ago. He's still into it!
One of the most personable guys you'd ever want to know.

Many years ago, in a weak moment, Buddy gave thoughts of selling #11 and I flew out to meet him and see the car.  Sadly, we couldn't come to terms and I passed on it which I'll admit is one of the stupidist things I've ever done.  Fortunately for Buddy, he came to his senses and kept the car.
