SAAC-47 / SAAC 47 Vintage Race
June 21, 2022, 06:39:43 AM

I'd like to thank Curt Vogt and anyone else that had a hand in putting on the Vintage Race at Indy. It was a fun event, I only wish there had been a few more participants. The etched glass trophy made it even better.

**** Thanks again Curt for the clutch assistance too!

Interesting video of their shop and project cars.

I apologize if this has already been posted.

My question is has anyone applied clear bra over their 69-70 side decals on their Boss 302. It's been implied that one can without any issues, while others comment it can leave a raised bubble where the two materials cross over right along the two edges due to the thickness. Anyone have an experiences either way with clear bra over decals. Thank you for any input.

Noticed these Shelby KR's coming up for auction in less than a week, along with quite a few early Mustangs. If anyone's interested check the attached link.
Never heard of these people, anyone have any experience with them. What a shame to have modified this "Shelby" so extensively it's far from original.

Just looked at Revology's site, it ain't real.... to be polite its a recreation. We could discuss for days this companies Ford licensed recreations of GT350 & GT350H's!   >:(
This is shaping up to be a fantastic event with vintage races, a Mecum car auction, car rally, Concours D'Elegance and daytime and nightly entertainment. The events (other than the driving tour/Rally) will be centered around downtown Chattanooga, with the vintage races taking place on a dedicated street course along the river front.

I've attached the main website which lists the specific events, entry procedures, etc.
If you are local or within a short drive of Chattanooga it would be great to have a contingent of Shelby's within the car club events.

Spotted a really nice looking white with gold stripe Hertz Shelby tonight. The car has Georgia license plates, anyone on here? Thought you might be attending the HSR Vintage races at Barber this weekend.    :)

The first video has a great shot of the front row occupied by three Cobra's, in the second video you see the King Cobra. It's too bad there isn't car audio which would be preferable to the music. Hope this isn't a repost.


Interestingly enough they have a "National Rent A Racer Day", which I assume is meant for Hertz cars.

As you can see we have expanded our event plans, with events focused on specific Mustang years, generations, and models.

The events listed with an * will be limited to 25 vehicles due to current North Carolina state health guidelines,
meaning the first 25 registered guests are assured of being in the event. When the guidelines change, we will be able to increase the number of vehicles able to register.

These events are free to Museum Members, with a $10 charge for non-Members.

We are, however, expanding the event to Mustang enthusiasts unable to attend the event at the Museum, as they can purchase
event decals and apparel to create their own local
National Mustang event.

The apparel will be a two sided print, with the event logo on the left chest, with the Mustang silhouettes of the years or models of the
event on the back.

The larger events, highlighted in bold and italicized, may still be affected by the COVID-19 situation, as we hope to be able to host
more guests than the current limits.

The Spring & Fall Carolina Cruises are free to all enthusiasts.

We wanted to provide the enthusiasts with our event plans so hopefully you can make plans to join us.

Fords on Sunday

In the Charlotte area there is at least one "cars and coffee" event
for every Saturday somewhere.

The abundance of Saturday cars and coffee events affects each of those Saturday morning events attendance.

We are planning on holding our "Fords on Sunday" cruise-in on
Sunday mornings between 1PM-3PM, on the last Sunday of each month.

We realize this not a "normal" time for such an event, but thought
it may give enthusiasts a time to join us.

Lastly, we look forward to reconnecting with the Mustang Hobby
in 2021.

The Lounge / 2021 Cobra Experience Calendars
December 27, 2020, 07:12:21 AM

These are currently on sale through Cobra Experience. Decent Shelby/Cobra calendars are hard to find, here's your chance for 2021 calendar for your garage, workshop or home. FYI I have no affiliation.

Like the author Colin Comer, I have the same feeling on this particular cars sale. Being a Sapphire '66 owner (albeit a race car) I hope the new owner does what's right by this Shelby and fully restores it. Will it ever be as valuable, probably not, but it will remain intact rather than pass into history.

Up For Auction / Early Ford parts inventory for sale
December 19, 2020, 08:10:31 AM

Here's your chance to add to your existing parts, I wonder what could be found within this cache?   8)

Interesting video of the owners restoration process. Also note that within the comments section is a video of the actual segment when the Shelby was found.

Interesting back story on the wheels supposedly intended for the J car. I'll not comment on the statement within the video of having sold the VIN tag off the Shelby. The remaining video is far less interesting, just a FYI.
