Concours Talk / Re: How to find an old judging sheet
« on: September 20, 2021, 09:19:12 AM »
As for the KR that Legendary brought to SAAC 31 as I recall now ( it was 15 years ago ) I don't think it was officially judged so it probably will not show up in any records. If I recall correctly after judging the concourse Peter K. wanted to know how their restoration stacked up so Mike S. turned me loose on it. From memory IMHO it might have been a low gold, high silver Div. II car if officially judged.

Legendary brought a KR to SAAC 31 at VIR in 2006 to be judged. I helped judge the car. I don't know if it was 04147 though.

Had a customer bring in one ( 71 Challenger 440-6, A/T, triple black ) to restore about 30 years ago. I went over it and gave him a list of parts that were needed to do the restoration. Started to collect parts then he sold it. I still have a NOS RH door skin for it.

     If your having difficulty with the process of the boot slipping over the spark plug, spritz a little WD40 in the terminal boot and it will slip on easier, this also allowing one to better feel the terminal 'click' in place.     ;)

Actually you should use a silicone dielectric grease such as Motorcraft XG-3-A or equivalent.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Heavy draw on battery
« on: June 16, 2021, 06:07:08 PM »
I have replaced the entire wiring harness on my 68. I continue to have a strong draw of 9.5v and I have no clue where its coming from. We've traced everything.

Thoughts ?
Parasitic loads (draws) are measured in amps not volts. Do you mean amps? If that is 9.5 amps that a big draw. Disconnect the alternator, voltage regulator  and see if it goes away. If not go to the fuse box and remove one fuse at a time while checking the draw. 9.5 amp draw would normally be to large for most accessories ie. glove box light, clock ect. I would start with the alternator, voltage regulator or ignition feed for that large of a draw.

I think some are being way too casual about this example.  Isn't it obvious what the intent is?  Both the car and perpetrator need to be crushed!

That NY license plate (  SHELBY67 ) is registered with that 1968 VIN 8T02S149549
:o :o :o that sounds like a potential nightmare. I thought all cars were in a national data base if stolen.
The answer may be that the stolen car vs this registered car not showing up in a data base is perhaps the stolen car is listed with the complete Ford/Shelby VIN ( Ford VIN + 01842 ) not just the Ford VIN alone like this one.

That fork puts the sketch in sketchy ;)
I'd say this one's pretty sketchy ;D
I built one similar to this back in the day ( 69-70? ). I used several sets of forks cut and slide one into the next set and welded. Not nearly as much rake as the one in the photo. Cool but handled like S**T. I scraped those forks real soon. Then built one that had a mono shock rear suspension. I think Yamaha stole My idea.

The Lounge / Re: On the column shifter
« on: June 10, 2021, 09:45:55 AM »
My brother had a 71 Challenger that had some unusual options ( quit a few actually ) one combo was it was a 340 A/T car with a column shift and a bench seat. I had a 1970 F100 with a 3 on the tree. The problem with some vehicles with a three on the tree was a fast shift to second was hard on your knuckles.

There are 2 flashers on your 67. 1 for the turn signals and 1 for the 4 way flashers.
