No staggered shocks and the cut out for center exhaust collector should not be all the way to bottom of valance.  At least it isn't on my Shelby.

I think competition red cars got white stripes.  Which red was it?
Hagerty's Drivers Club looks like you still have to pay up to $350 for a tow on top of the annual cost. 
Heacock classic charges me $25/vehicle for towing and emergency expense, but has a $200 limit.  It's important to make sure the towing company will send a flatbed. 

That sounds like a really stressful event. The homeless people and door opening into your car.  You must have tremendous patience because that would not have ended well for many other people, myself included.  I've had people park near my Shelby and if they look questionable I have stood next to their car door before they open it to prevent a door ding.  It's ok they thought I was crazy. I have also taken everything out of my trunk to reserve space near my Shelby when I had car trouble once in a shopping center lot.

Were not sure where original owner worked?

No, he is deceased.  Current owner doesn't know.  I will ask Vinny when I report myself as the owner in a few months if the stars and planets align.   ;) ;

That makes sense.  I was told the 1st owner worked as a salesman at a ford dealership in Dallas when he ordered the car.  I can't find the dealer id on the red warranty card.

What possible reason would a dealer tag on a car not match the dealer the car was originally shipped to?

I would be interested in seeing before and after pictures Ed.  I'm still running on 4 glued original rims. 
Looks suspicious.  Only 2 photos and no price.

I should have said Interior toggle switch on the console.  I'm pretty sure that turns on the front and rear side marker lights, the rear tail lights, and the dash lights on my car.  I don't believe the front turn signal running lights turn on with the Interior toggle switch on my car, but this is going from memory.

It could be a bad headlight switch as well.  What happens when you turn on the console toggle switch for the rear running lights?  Bad flasher due to extra load?
At those prices I will stick with my original glued, non-riveted rims that have some chrome imperfections.  From 10 feet away they look great.  After 15000 miles they haven't had any issues.  At car shows, I have overheard quite a few comments about my car being a clone until they see the patina on the rims.  Then I hear, "it might be a real Shelby ".

My early car had silver tape wrap. It was so crude I thought it was a poor repair done by a prior owner.
