The Lounge / NOT related to cars...
« on: August 11, 2022, 01:45:51 PM »
I just want to know if anybody is into vintage and high end stereo equipment? I have been into stereo things since 1977 and have collected much over they years.
I had the pleasure of working at a place called Audio Classics in Binghamton, home of McIntosh Labs. Thus I have a nice collection, to which I am finding myself ready to part with a few things.
I started to put things on ebay and the best I can say is that ebay has gotten "strange" also I wonder with their discount shipping, many of my units have green damaged in shipping. Or that is the game people play now.
I am just wondering if any of fellow car guys might be into this stuff?
This is a "just asking" post, just trying to find out.

The Lounge / Was not sure where to list this....

In Knoxville today it was sunny and 80 plus degrees. Took my 3 cars out for a ride.

66 GT350, guage shows hot but that might be The Normal? no signs of overheating, I did top it off so it did spew a little, but not much, upper hose was hot and tire to squeeze.
67 GT350, guage almost midway, not really overheating, but it did spew more, upper hose same as the 66. I did top it off.
70 Boss 302, guage shows nice, but it spewed, upper hose same as above, topped it off also.

Is it because I topped them off? I have done that before and once they are done spewing, they seem fine however level seems very low. Are any factory gauges to be trusted? All radiators have been cleaned and serviced. Not sure on the caps but the 66 has a 14 on it, the other two have a 13 with the 67 being the loosest and the 66 being super tight.

Do I have issues? I would like to take one to cars and coffee Sunday?

Just asking, but is there a owner of a FGT that might be thinking of selling? I would like to look into a car with "Stories" meaning in its history, it might have had issues. Like a test drive gone bad sort of thing? PM me.

Up For Auction / Opinion (s)
« on: December 31, 2021, 01:08:16 PM »
Just asking, seems nice, is it overpriced? Future value? I am thinking of it for my collection. I know I should not worry about future value, but someday if or when I am gone, I do not want my family to be told it is only worth 20K. Not sure which way this hobby will be going, with what is going on in this Country.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Front end height
« on: December 06, 2021, 09:08:42 PM »
Just acquired a GT350. It is a non Koni car but it has them installed. Also, it does not have the upper arm relocation. To me it is high in the front. (From the ground to the top of the fender, centered to the wheel, it measures 35 inches). Is that somewhat a normal height? I have 215-65-14 tires.
I would like to lower it, front only. What is the best means?
Order custom front springs?
Relocate the upper control arm?
Other?
Not interested in cutting the coil, or lowering the back also.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Thought I would share a story of a restoration:
« on: November 28, 2021, 01:30:51 PM »
Years ago, I bought a car, it was a basket case! It needed everything!

It began like this, a Body Shop owner came over to my house, where he looked it over and gave me an idea how much it would cost to do bodywork/paint. To which we both agreed that he could start anytime. We got a date for picking up the car and taking it to the shop.

The car was dissembled and the body sat in his shop for about 6 months, to which he called me one day and admitted that the metalwork was over his head, he told me he had an idea. There was a guy in our town who was a fabricator for one of the NASCAR race teams and he was at his shop looking over the car where he stated he could do all the metal work it needed, I agreed to it and transported the car to his shop. His work was fantastic and attention to detail was top notch and he did the work in about 6 months....(remember this, we are at a YEAR now).

The car was brought back to the 1st guy, and to make a long story short, it sat, untouched, for about 4 years plus a few months, we will call it 4 years. (remember that, now we are up to FIVE YEARS)

I pulled the car out and brought it back to my house, I was done with him. Maybe another 6 months went by and I found another guy who said, if all the metal work is done, I can finish it for you, at this point all the panels were lined up very nicely, easy! RIGHT? The car was delivered to his shop, where it was dissembled and where the welds were and other areas it was cleaned up. The body guy then called me and said, "I lost interest in doing the car for you, come and get it out of the ship, BTW you owe me $#%&@.00 (remember this we can add up the time to SIX YEARS).

The car was back at my home where no panels lined up anymore, it was just a sad looking rust free car! I thought of giving up and just getting out of it, but I did not. Some might say, "It will get done, when it gets done!" "The whining and moaning is getting old on this topic"  "Feel free to take it and do it yourself"... Family members would come over for Christmas Eve dinner and see the car in the basement and ask how is the car coming? Friends would as the same. I was so bothered that I almost traded a 65 Shelby GT350 FAKE for it, but I didn't. I am sure that many who came over to the house thought, "Ha, he will never get that car done."

Then I found a restoration shop in our area, they came over and looked the car over and said, yes we can take it and finish it, even take care of the mechanical work, in other words, I would be able to drive it home from their shop! How refreshing! After 2 years of it sitting, they told me they were is some sort of "trouble" and needed to clear out the cars in the shop, they brought it back along with about 20 boxes of stuff. They had it for 2 years. Just to add, I did not find out until a few years later that I was missing many unique parts to the engine, and had not recourse due to the time. (remember, we are now at EIGHT YEARS)

In about 3 years, I thought I would call a guy who restored many cars over the years and I knew of his work first hand, I was not sure he even did that anymore. He told me he does work for people that he knows and that he would do my car. I should have just thought of him in the first place, but thought the cost would be way too high. (The real cost was not just paying the money to the right guy). Anyway, he picked up the car and in a little over a year, it was done! (SO, total restoration work was just over TWELVE YEARS). I will be always thankful for this person who said he could do it and he did!

It is very good to be: patient, PERSISTENT, and keep asking questions, (Where is this? Where is that? Why is this not further along? When can I expect it?). It worked out and the car is now finished....I thought of this story as I am patiently, persistently, AND have been asking, When we can expect the 1967 Registry?
