The mounts that bolt to the block?  There are decent repro available.  A lot of these ended up getting rusty/pitted.

Like many of us Ed is not one dimensional. We get pegged as the "Shelby" guys but in reality a lot of us grew up with and have a lot of knowledge about all cars available in the day. When Ed was bought it I was sharing about ways to tell it was a genuine sidepipe car.  In addition to mostly Fords I owned several Vettes, BB Mopars, Trans am etc.( I did draw the line at AMC though  ;D) Its always fun when you are hanging around the GM crowd and start pointing out details they don't even know lol

Yep!  I have 4 MGB's currently, 2 '79's and 2 '67's.  I'm also into BMW M cars.  :-)

Is this the one that was at the 50th Anniversary in Charlotte NC?  If so I took a lot of Photos of it because of how nice it was.

Yep, it was finished just in time for that show.  It was actually outside the track at Marcus's Rare Cars Display.

Up For Auction / 64.5 Pace Car on BaT

I've listed a 64.5 Mustang Pace Car on BaT.

Great, that makes sense, thanks!

I helped restore a carburetor for a fellow owner in Canada recently.  It's a hipo carb, so quite valuable.  If I declare the true worth for insurance, I assume I'll have to declare that as the value also.

Is it possible for the owner of this carb to avoid paying taxes to have something they already own sent back to them?

Can't see anywhere on USPS or other forms to call that out.  It's not really a gift.

There's usually another clip at the bellhousing and I have also seen a J-clip above and to the right of the switch... goes on the same bolt that attaches the vent tube.

Without these 2 additional clips, likely going to burn up the wiring on the headers/exhaust.

Could have sworn there was a discussion recently about clutches and someone mentioning a place (in Texas?) that can rebuild original clutch discs and pressure plates? 

Any recommendations?  For a '65 GT350.  I have an original pressure plate and disc.


There is a minimum amount that if you sell over it, they are required to send the 1099. I THINK the amount is $1,500?

It's $600 and not just eBay.  If there are more than $600 received in 'merchandise/goods' payments with like Venmo, Paypal... they will also issue 1099.  That's why so many sellers only want to accept 'friends and family' as payment... which unfortunately gives no protection to the buyer.  I only do this type of payment for those that I know personally.  Zelle is a bank to bank cash app, with no reporting, but no protection with Zelle either as there are no 'take-backs' once the funds are sent.

I can tell you I made my hotel reservations and "Shelby Club" was recognized.

Is it only for certain days?  What rate did you get?

Maybe oven cleaner, like used to remove paint from fiberglass fastback interior panels?

Checking to see if anyone is close to Simcoe, Ontario that might be able to help with the parts purchase.

No longer needed, seller backed out.
