Nice find Mike!
I think the front view of this pink painted "The Judge" is posted early in this thread.

" US 30 dragstrip"?  The one outside Gary Indiana or the one in New York?  If it was the one in Gary, I never ran into the car when I was out there running #0036.

roddster, I found that pic of the white car with a bunch of others, dating from about '65 through the mid '70s. From what I could

gather they were at U.S. 30 near Gary Indiana.

Here's a link, it's an open group on Facebook, just say not now, and you should be able to see the images, just tried and it works.

  Cool.  Thanks.  Van Senus auto parts is still in business.  And they have one of the last few automotive machine shops in Northwest Indiana.  They did the block on #0036 some 30 yearsa ago.  No problems still.

This Brittany Blue GT500 has eluded me for years and years (searching for the Shelby VIN).

It shows up often on the internet in these two attached photos.
More recently (January 2020) it was on video clip with Charlie McHose, the '67 Shelby designer, at Charlie's house in CA.
Anyone know anything more about this one. "550-MTE"

Not from the web, but a couple I shot on a rainy day at the 1996 Vintage races, Watkins Glen, in a time when I didn't make note

 of the #'s, silly me  ::) I seem to remember there was some question around the white '67, but that could have been another car

 at another show, it was 25 years ago  !

Many of us didn't pay much attention to the Shelby VIN numbers back then.
Can't beat yourself up over that. I sure wish I did now.
