I sit by the mailbox each day waiting for it
Nothing yet 😪

It’s been to Detroit about 3 times
Only thing ever stolen since I’ve owned were the original hood pins when it was parked in a hotel next to Disneyland in Anaheim in 1973
I blame the mouse

I spoke to him about it, might make it. Also had a guy approach me about the Cobble Beach Concurs in Canada and of course since Jim Wicks came to MCACN I now have to go to Mid America
The M1 Concourse seems really like a neat one to go to and it’s a whole closer than the other two. Only 600 miles to Detroit 🤓

I was amazed by that car. Its was a time capsule , The owner was so gracious and loved showing the car
A fantastic example of how they were built

You know I’d always thought that a/c was standard on all 66’s. It was air conditioned by heat through the right and left vents, plus the power of opening vent windows. Sure it wasn’t cooled air but it was conditioned by the smell of a 289  HiPo with the additional of musical notes of solid lifters
Beside that I never saw an actual  Shelby with “factory A/C”. Hang on units yes, most were Sears or some other aftermarket units
Would love to see photos of any Ford units on a 66 Shelby including the bottom pulley and belt routing with idlers and adjustment pulley

If he had purchased them car earlier in the year I would have contacted him to include in the just completed “Cars of Hertz” Invitational at the MCACN show. It  would have been a great addition to other “Rent a Racers”

Yes, a very nice display. Thanks for putting it on. Gary

Thanks for the pics
We also had a display case of Hertz Memorabilia and display of the MICO master cylinder and the speedometer locks
Tried to get one of each 66 color and one of each year 68-70 plus Hertz Cougars 68-70, just couldn’t get it done but thanks to all who did bring their cars

We had a fantastic response to the display. Having different colors and years really added to the delight of the crowd. I can’t thank everyone enough to those who displayed their cars and others who helped me locate stuff for the show. Hopefully the “Hertz Goodie Bag” was at least a little payback for all of your efforts and hardwork
Met some many people over that few days that would be impossible to name all of the names who thanked us for the display
It turned out awesome
Thanks again
Steve McDonald

How's it going at the event?

Steve were you able to have all the '66 GT350 "colors" make it?

Wasn’t able get all the cars I wanted but what we gave seems to be very well received
Seeing the different cars we have on display has been eye opening many who there were all black and gold and all Shelby
The Red 1968 XR7G Cougar, the Calypso Coral 1969, the white and Gold that does have the top stripes and the Red and Gold car have all drawn a crowd the display of the MICO master cylinder, and the speedometer locks have drawn a lot of attention plus the display of the scale models and Shelby Memorabilia

The “lost” interview with Ken Miles is just great.  You can really feel the man’s skills and knowledge with what he says. Great reading

Might ask Kopec if we can “reissue” them. Office Depot  does awesome work 🤣

Was searching for something else and came across this from 1986
I remember it being discussed once before
I could have used this a few times, rather than “Sorry Officer”

All the carryovers I’m aware of have the 65 style axle housing.

Here’s what I have in my notes about the later cars. I’ve added *** by the 65’s to make them easier to spot.

Car   Axle Housing Style
253        66
280        66
285        66
292        66
296        65 ***
324        65 ***
359        66
402        66
407        66
454        66 (per your new info)
476        65 ***
477        65 ***
480        66 (per your new info)
488        66
520        66
524        65 ***
554        66
587        65 ***
701        66
705        66
711        66
754        66
762        66
817        66
853        66
907        66
914        66
1134      66
1761      66
2020      66
2191      66
2227      66

As always, this data may have errors. I did not keep track of the source on most of these. And even if I had, some people simply report incorrect info for a variety of reasons. So take all the above with a grain of salt.

Cars 1431 and 1855 had the 66 style yers
