We stopped in at this collection few years ago  during the gt350 tour  there are some very fine examples of just about anything !
 more than a handful   i would like to call my own   .
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Anyone know the story on the front blinker lights on the '64 White/Red 289 Cobra, or the car number?

It's been a few months and still no descriptions on the cars offered in the auction.
I'm wondering what is the CSX number is on the 427 in this link?

I'd be in for the Cunningham - but being on a fixed income now I don't know if I could afford the gas.

It just might be csx3299. It seems to match in details to the photo in my files

THANKS...
I didn't see that stamped black frame part that confirms it as CSX 3299
Too busy waiting for the description and looking for the aluminum firewall ID plate

That's quit the collection.  I sure like those manual Hertz cars and the 65 GT350 and the Cobras of course.

Most impressive
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
