Floating around AZ auctions as well. People want the meat and potatoes of these cars, they just want to own one. The little items what ever they might be can usually be taken care of at a later time. The goal is to get one and the rest will fall into place. Fun to see the excitement is still in the air come auction time! Enjoy AZ in January!

I am going to try to go to some of the larger gatherings around the BJ auctions. Hope to see a few of you and enjoy the general good vibe of auction week!

Thanks Tony, Van, Roy, for the support..... The next items will be to make sure a wheel doesnt come apart, or blow a tire, or install a drive shaft safety loop, and cage, and a whole bunch of other stuff just to do it one time or maybe a couple times. Getting older now and am not Mario Andretti so need to do it properly. Will probably run steel wheels and race tires like the NASCAR boys run, rated at 200 mph plus.

His TUNA Samich..... Was an attempt to make up for his food sins, a good start.

It has been a little while since anything to post about SHELBYS. So now that the weather has cooled off and the Holidays are upon us it is time to turn some attention to our love of cars and leave some of lifes problems behind. It has been 51 years since my car was a running, driving, complete car that someone could be proud to say thats my car. Many dont mind the patina look and thats ok, but I prefer the shiny finished look. Most ALL of my storage boxes and containers are empty now with all the parts put back on the car, which I am so happy about... Taking small bites and baby steps over the last few years to get it back together. Now its time to get the little bugs and details worked out to get to the original goal of 177 mph besting the Super Snakes 175mph with OL SHELL driving. The SS had 427 HR power I think I can get there with 427 MR power. Looking forward to being the Fastest Original 1967. Thank You to all that have helped me along the way it is getting pretty close to trying out some top speed runs! :D

Since I dont own a COBRA..... The next best thing to get lost in the 60s is this for me, at least for the twisties.

This car has an even more radical leave it alone following, so the easiest solution is to have the stocker when you go sell it, and the FUN engine to enjoy it with! After all what fun is a car that never gets driven!!!

I grew up on that BLVD and a few others in the mid to late 70s... Truly some fun times, crazy times, growing up times. Our spot was in Super shops parking lot or Arbys lot. Close by was SERVICE CENTER race and parts store, once the owner of SERVICE CENTER- DAVE, asked me to run out onto Sepulveda Blvd to block traffic he was going to test out his Top Fuel dragster and make a hit. Imagine a T/F Dragster doing a hit on city streets during the day ;D Only in the 70s in LA. I asked him what if the Cops showed up? He said NO problem the cop on that patrol was a good friend of his, and a great customer as well. Look at all the HAPPY smiles on the people back then, There was a lot of fun to go around in LA!

Kent-   It really is not that difficult of a question to ask yourself. Most SHELBYS dont have their born with engines so would you like to drive something that sounds like your vacuum cleaner when driving it or would you prefer the wail of a highly tuned Big Block echoing off the buildings or canyon walls, I compare it to wanting a Cobra..... A small block 289 is fun- But a 427 SC is breathtaking, I would choose the latter. Here is a picture of mine with a 427 medium riser, 99 percent of people dont know the difference or really care, but what they do like, is going for a ride and screaming like a girl SLOW DOWN/SLOW DOWN!
