With Little Red, The Green Hornet, the 2nd Bullett Car, all being found what’s the chances that the Jim Morrison GT500 will all of a sudden be found?
There’s got to some piece left somewhere that will turn up
It’s been too quiet recently. Any new rumors?

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”

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Looking for a Green/Gold Hertz

Short notice, but the Green/Gold Hertz car I had for the MCACN Show in Chicago in about 3 weeks had to drop out for family issues. Anybody with a green/gold car want to take his place?
Send me PM

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Celebrating 50 years of ownership in Dec
« on: October 30, 2021, 08:51:44 AM »
Was checking out some boxes of stuff and came upon the first picture I have of my car in Dec 1971 right after I purchased it.
I also looked at the picture I took a few weeks ago when I showed it at the AACA Fall Meet in Hershey where it received its AACA First Place Junior Award.
So many memories in its 242,000 mile journey

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Memories, a blast from the past
« on: October 01, 2021, 05:36:15 PM »
About twice a year my relatives get together to talk and generally catch up. We joke that we only now meet at funerals so this is much better and we can say what we want to the person without them being dead. My only surviving Aunt is approaching 90 and the youngest person is almost 66 so its a "hope this is not the last one" kind of lunch. My aunt and a cousin bought some pictures and there is one from June 25th 1978 and in the background is my Shelby. I had borrowed my friends 1932 Ford 5 Window coupe to drive at the wedding and he had borrowed my Shelby for his wedding. in the background of this picture in my car sitting in the driveway. It looks like it had just been pulled out of the garage but in the 40+ years we lived in the house we never once had a car in the garage as it was always filled with junk and stuff.
Nice to see pictures of the car from back in the day even if a bad photo. I'm pretty sure it had about 120,000 miles on it at that time, as it got about another 100,000 before being taken off the road about 1988. bought back lots of memories

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Tires back in the 60’s
« on: August 14, 2021, 05:15:16 PM »
I think everyone can agree that the original Goodyear Blue Streaks didn’t last very long, I’ve heard they were all pretty much worn out by about 6,000 miles . I was talking a week or so to the guy I bought my Herz car from in 1971, he said when he got it the car had just over 6,000 miles and had Goodyear Red Line Tires on it. The spare was a D70-14 Goodyear Red Line and stayed in the car until 2012 when I changed it to a BF Goodrich T/A radial. I saw a picture of a 6S565 at Speedway Motors with Red Line tire on it. We’re these the “recommended” replacement tires or was it just a fluke that two cars had them back in the day?
Any of the experts out that can add to this would be appreciated
Thanks
