When I was looking for a 66 Shelby, I stopped in Albuquerque at a Ford dealer and test drove one. On the way to the salesman's cubicle, we walked past a new 427 Cobra. He said "Let me sell you this car", I asked how much and He said $5000. My answer was "I don't want one of those damn foreign cars, I want a Shelby" This was August 1967 . Ron

Bought 6S550 in 1967, as soon as Hertz turned it back to Ford. It's a great ride, and I feel like I'm 18 every time I fire it up. Ron

Did mine for 6S550, but I didn't have him "restore" it. It looked great when I sent it to him. He just worked on it because sometimes it would work, and sometimes not work. He got it fixed in a short amount of time and really reasonable on cost. Ron

Wife found the problem. In the upper right corner of the page is a small arrow thing pointed up. Must have somehow clicked on it. Everything is good now. Ron

Is anyone else having a problem not coming up to the home/sign in page when coming to this site? It used to come up to the page for sign in or read posts since last visit. Now,  it comes up to the page with all the different sections of the site. I can't believe it is my computer doing this. Ron

Would like to give a great big "THANK YOU" to all those who gave all for our country, and freedom.  Because of all of them, we are able to live in partial freedom today. Ron

I took 6S550 to my local mechanic and gave him the specs from my owners manual, and they did it.
