A thought that jumps to my mind is that plumbers thread tape - like is used to make the threads on a shower head water tight.

It is super thin and conforms to the shape of the threads. You can wrap it around multiple times to add thickness.

Also loved his logos and graphics.

If someone tells you P.J. never won a race in his BME Cougar don't believe them.

Rest in peace Parnelli Jones.

Haven't seen where this has been posted before - some vintage footage of the Cougar II (starting at 8:19) and the Mustang II (starting at 14:04).

gt350shelb's pics, past and present, have disappeared for me also.

Seems to have happened since the site update?

No need to apologize - Peter Klutt has had at least two TV shows that I can think of, plus the content they are creating solely for YouTube.

The time/date of when the episode is put up on their YouTube channel is what is referenced, not when it was originally filmed.

I miss his TV show - I thought it was one of the more interesting ones. Willing to bet it was more expensive to produce than the run-of-the-mill Graveyard Cars, Bitchen Rides, Texas Metal, Sam's Garage, Two Guys Garage, All Girls Garage, etc. etc.

Yes, believe it aired when they were on Velocity/Motortrend.

For those that haven't heard - seems the building that housed Bud Moore Engineering is no more due to fire.

Very sad to lose such an historic building.

Yep - process is pretty much the same as before.

Thanks to the technical team!

Testing to see how posting a photo goes on the updated forum -

I'm sure most know this - but just in case.... GT-E Cougars had unique grills - blacked out with twin horizontal chrome bars running across the middle.

I've sent this pic on to the GT-E Registrar.

Looks to be a 289 Cobra? Besides the snout and hood scoop it says "289 Ford Racing" on the side.

Also, there is a GT-E Cougar lurking behind it on the other side of the fence.

Any info on when and where this pic was taken?
