Bill Collins Car Show
« on: October 13, 2018, 08:10:23 PM »
Hey, everyone, I took my son to the nearly all-Ford car show today at the Bill Collins Ford dealership here in Louisville. I got to meet Larry427 and his nice wife. I got to see 3 real Shelbys up close and personal. One was a survivor, which was a treat. There was a '67, a '69 and a '70. Unfortunately, 2 of the owners I met of these neat Shelbys, did not belong to S.A.A.C. or were on the forums. I'll try to get the owners to join, next time I get a chance to see some Shelbys. I look forward to meeting more of you at an Indiana S.A.A.C. event. Later.
Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

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

I forgot to go back and take a picture of the '69. I did get a picture of the '70 and 2 of the '67. I'll post soon. Larry's 427 looks pretty correct in the interior. The trunk area was all aluminum.

Btw, what are those glass/plastic dots behind the roof scoops on those '67 Shelbys? And what the heck does it mean when people end their message with "phred"?
