SAAC-48 / Question about Pete Brock’s key note talk

What night is Pete Brock’s talk?  Is it the Friday night dinner on the registration website?

Parts For Sale / Freshly Rebuilt 289 HIPO Engine Dated 6K17 For Sale
« on: February 26, 2023, 11:27:02 PM »
I have a freshly rebuilt (zero hours) 289 HIPO engine for sale.   It was completely overhauled by John Callis, who has an excellent reputation as a top Ford classic engine builder.  He took over a hundred photos during the rebuild process.  It has a casting date of 6K17, and the heads are dated 6K27.  It is stamped 7F07K2752, but it's extremely faint and can only be seen when the paint is stripped off the engine block. 

It has a brand new Holman Moody 289 HIPO factory spec Camshaft and Lifters installed.  The cylinders are .020 over. 

It has a restored HIPO harmonic balancer C50E dated L6.    It also comes with a restored set of exhaust manifolds C30E-9431-B and C4ZE-9430-A respectively.  I have a nice set of early service replacement 'fanged' Cobra Valve Covers that will be included.  The Cobra intake is a brand new Blue Thunder replacement, and the carburetor is not included.

More information and pictures are available.


Well, it's that time again.  The air is starting to get cooler, the leaves are starting to change to their beautiful hue of amber and coral and the Masonic Lodge of Pittsboro, North Carolina will be hosting it's 11th annual Car Show and Fib Fest.  This year it takes place concurrently with the Pittsboro Street fair, so you'll have two fine events to peruse.  Without a doubt, this show garners the participation of some of the most unique cars in the Triad as we have multiple award categories and the trophies trump what you would find in most local events.  If you are anywhere close by, try and stop by and say hello.


Columbus Lodge No 102, the Masonic Lodge of Pittsboro, NC will be holding it's 11th annual Columbus Lodge Day on Saturday, October 29th, 2022. (Raindate: Saturday, November 6th, 2022) This event includes a Car Show, and a Spare Rib lunch. 

All makes and models are welcome, and all registered cars are eligible for very unique trophies.

Judged categories include: Best of Show, Chairman's Award, Best Ford, Best GM, Best Mopar, Best Foreign Car, Best Orphan (Non-Big 3), Best Truck, Best Paint, Best Convertible, Best Survivor, Best interior, Best Engine Bay, Best 4 Door, Best Non-Automobile, Best Masonic Owned, Best Themed and the American Graffiti Award, along with top 25 show participants. 

Registration is from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, judging from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm with awards announced at 2:00 pm sharp. The donation to show your car is $25. It is free to be a spectator, and a delicious rib lunch is  only $15!

Please contact Brian at 919 265-4081 or  for more information.

***Please Note: Same as last year, this event will be held at the new location, the old Pittsboro Chevrolet (now the Alpha Center) at 697 Hillsboro Street, Pittsboro, NC.    We look forward to seeing you there! ***

So you've saved up for years to purchase your dream Shelby, but one thing is missing when you cruise to your local Cars and Coffee.  Carroll knew what that was. Not only do you need to look cool driving your car, you've gotta smell good too!  That's why 'Ol Shel came out with his iconic "Real Man's Deodorant".  It's said that the designers of this 'possibly pheromone laced concoction' based the unique fragrance on the smell of Ken Miles' racing jumpsuit after winning the 24 hours of LeMans in 1966.  This of course can't be proven, but does it really matter? 

All kidding aside, here we have a nice example of Shelby's Pit Stop deodorant. the condition is very good considering that most of these were used up and thrown into landfills back in the day.  The label has some light water damage, and the cap has a crack in the top.  It still retains over half of it's original contents, which will still spray on demand.  It's a great addition to anyone's Shelby collection.  Please see additional pics for condition.

$1200 plus shipping.

Appeals / 1967 wood steering wheel resto
« on: July 20, 2022, 12:33:58 PM »
I was using Jeff Stephens to restore my steering wheels, but he doesn't seem to be answering his email.  Does anyone have an alternate person to this this kind of work? 

Thanks so much!


The Lounge / Another 'Rare' Shelby from Dennis Collins
« on: July 16, 2022, 01:00:05 AM »

You can just jump to about the 16:00 mark to see the '67 Shelby GT500.  I'm not trashing Dennis, I generally enjoy his videos (although his taste in primate friends is questionable), but only he can call a lime gold '67 with factory magstars "rare"!

"It's a grail car!"  :o

Joe Biden's 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Selling for $1.2M


Somebody thought they had a AC Ace and read Carroll Shelby's autobiography too many times.  Lot's of question here, is that a HIPO?  Does it come with a signed glove box?

The Lounge / Saw this 2022 Bronco today
« on: June 24, 2022, 01:29:04 PM »
I was at the dealer today and saw this for sale.  Love the colors, but those rims, yikes!

I do have to say that in person (maybe not in pictures) the green color of this Big Bend Bronco matches pretty closely to 1967 Dark Moss Green.  Price....$75K used, Holy Cow!

Well, I managed to top that one.  How about $11,000 for a signed glove box for your '67?  Sounds like a bargain to me:

Used 1967 & 1968 Ford Mustang Glove Box Door, Carroll Shelby Autograph Authentic

Used 1967 & 1968 Ford Mustang Glove Box Door With Carroll Shelby Autograph. Signed by Carroll Shelby. Free Shipping in USA. Authentic Autograph by Carroll Shelby / “not a decal.”

Free shipping in USA.Note: Confirmation/Authenticity of Carroll Shelby signing items for my Father standing to the right of Carroll Shelby

Note: examine pictures closely, there are smudges in the front surface of the glove box door.

See eBay seller antdec4206 for more Thunderbird parts

$11,000, No Bids Yet

But he does include 'free shipping", pretty big of I'm, don't you think?  :o

I really love when he says, "If you have a Shelby and want to make it correct this is for you."  That statement couldn't farther from the truth.  And the $7,000 asking price, why not considering the crazy prices we keep seeing on everything lately.  For the record, I have ten of these and I'll sell each for only $5,000 a piece if anyone is interested... ::)

Mustang Vintage 1968 mustang Shelby 500 Shifter Knob original used antique rare
1968 mustang Shelby gt 500 shifter knob

Original used 1968  mustang  Shelby   500 shifter knob. This item is in restored and un cleaned original condition. It's worn in just the right places in the wood finish, so it's visually correct in the driver's position. Good slightly worn is what it looks like and way better in person. Beautiful wood grain is amazing. This item has been in my collection for over 40 years so I know it's correct and not a repo. If you have a Shelby and want to make it correct this is for you. thanks for looking.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Car no. 666?
« on: May 22, 2022, 06:32:47 PM »
My brother was out in Massachusetts on Saturday and came across this car at a local car show.  They're not the greatest quality pics, but I think they show car no. 666.  Anyone know this car?  Would the owner's name happen to be Lucifer Morningstar, or does he only drive a '62 black corvette?

New Spring 2022 SAAC Carolinas Event!!!

Gas prices are up, masks are off and Putin is invading the Ukraine, it must be time for another SAAC Carolinas Spring Event.  You are officially invited to attend the upcoming SAAC Carolinas Spring Event on Saturday, May 21st, 2022, at the Hickory Regional Airport, in Hickory, NC.  Like last year, we will be parking member's cars amongst the vintage military airplanes that reside at the museum, and it makes for amazing photo opportunities.

 They have a fabulous museum that is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and we'd like to get as many cars in and parked amongst the planes as early as possible, so plan to be there between 9:00-9:30am.  There are plenty of trailer parking spaces located in the airport parking lot for those who may need them. 

As for lunch, there is a short order cafe at the museum, and the food is quite good which I can attest to.  There is plenty of room to sit inside and eat, plus there are three picnic tables outside by the planes and around your cars.  There are also plenty of restrooms inside the terminal including ones that are handicap accessible. 

If anyone is thinking of staying overnight, there is a Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton Inn, both located about 15 minutes from the airport on I-40.  From there, you can easily drive to the event in your car. 

I plan to bring my growing collection of Shelby/Ford memorabilia, and we might even have another round of our famous SAAC Carolinas Trivia, so bring your thinking caps.   Please RSVP if possible.  We look forward to seeing you there!

I'm posting this for Bill B.  :)

Here are two scans from the 1977 November/December Shelby-Cobra Owners Association of the Southeast Newsletter.  It has some coverage of the 3rd Annual SAAC North Carolina Fall Meet, held in October 1977 at the Pine Mount Lakes Resort, which is just southwest of Hickory. Bill says there were over 80 cars with 125+ people who attended.   His friend was the Editor of that newsletter for years and recently found several copies from various years and gave them to him.  Back in the 1970s/80s, he and his wife commuted in Atlanta with their daily drivers, a '69 GT350 and '66 Sunbeam Tiger MK1.  Ah, the good 'ol days!
