The Lounge / TransAm or NASCAR???
« on: October 15, 2021, 02:07:59 PM »
Mustangs and Camaros - tube frames - carbonfiber bodies - 12" centerlock wheels.

TransAm series from 40 years ago? Nope 2022 NASCAR. They say their will be more road courses too. SCCA should sue.
NASCARs big $$ maker is that they will be the sole source of chassis and body. With teams running through up to 30 cars a season it should be a great payday. GoodYear stock should also go up with all the tires the carbon fiber shards will cut up after each crash.

Here is the 1982 Zack Speed IMSA car and the 1985 Fox TA car. Basically the same cars under the skin.

The Lounge / GRAND OPENING - Segerstrom Shelby Event Center
« on: July 22, 2021, 02:06:28 PM »

September 4, 2021

This is an opportunity to visit the collection on it's opening day. The event is a reception for the Grand Master of Masons in CA who will hold a dedication ceremony earlier in the day.
There is a black tie dinner/program at the center at 5pm - ?. Seating is VERY limited. $150 each. I can send you a PDF reservation form (bmacd68@yahoo.com) if you are interested.

Some of you have followed Ted & Rae Segerstrom's pursuit to buy and have Tim Lea restore all 5 of the yellow 68 GT500KR 4 speed convertibles built http://timlea.com/2016/08/04/yellow-68-4-speed-ac-kr-convertibles/  https://themustangsource.com/we-drive-segerstrom-shelby-mustangs-21914/

Profits from the Segerstrom Shelby Event Center go to the Shriners for Children Medical Center — Pasadena and the Carroll Shelby Foundation.

The Shriners for Children Medical Center — Pasadena provides comprehensive medical, surgical and rehabilitative care to children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burn scars, and cleft lip and palate. Medical Center patients receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the families' ability to pay.

The Carroll Shelby Foundation provides medical assistance for those in need, including children, as well as educational opportunities for young people. The Foundation has continued to aid children battling deadly diseases, while expanding its reach into the classroom through the Northeast Texas Community College’s Carroll Shelby Automotive Technology Center.

The Lounge / Ford news good but actually bad
« on: July 14, 2021, 08:25:45 PM »
The good new cars and trucks are again being shipped to dealers. The bad most do not run due to the ongoing chip shortage. Ford was running out of space and decided the dealers can store them and stick the ECUs etc in when they become available. So go buy that new car it may run someday.

Ford let slip their 2022 NASCAR Mustang is a Hybrid........

NASCAR also has a problem with the next gen spec chassis. If failed the crash test bad enough to kill the crash dummy.
