Hi Every one. We finally got SFM6S 550 out to Reno this year for Hot August Nights this year. Just wondering if any one has pics of it. It was parked on Virginia ave. both Friday and Saturday in front of the Silver Legacy, and cruised  both of those nights. If you have pics, or a video, it is a black and gold GT350 Hertz car. you could post them, or email them to me    My email is Thanks Ron
The Lounge / Member T shirts and membership plaques
September 18, 2023, 12:14:33 PM
Was talking to Jay Talbot at the Shelby Museum get together about why the club quit sending out member T shirts and the small member plaques (these were about 1 inch by 3 inches. I'm just how many members are interested in receiving these, and how much would you be willing to pay for them. I would pay $20 for the shirt and up to $3.50 for a plaque.  Ron
Appeals / transmission rear tailshaft seal
June 24, 2023, 03:44:23 PM
Hi Guys,  I posted this request yesterday  in the 1966 section,and no replies. Is the tailshaft seal different on a T-10 transmission and a
Ford toploader.  Thanks for any help.   Ron
I'm going to replace my tail shaft seal on my T-10 transmission, and am wondering if it is the same as a Ford toploader.      Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Ron

Is Jim on this forum. Was wondering why I didn't see him on the Mecum Kissemmee auction coverage. I haven't watched all of it yet, but not like him  not to be around when the Cobra, and  Shelbys sold. Hope his health is OK.  Rpn

Today we honor those who gave all to preserve our freedom, and way of life. I did not serve, but have always wondered if I would have had the courage to die for my country. I like to think that I would have.  All gave some, Some gave all. Ron
1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Story about 6S550
February 19, 2020, 12:22:17 PM
Thought I'd let everyone know about a magazine article about out car. I don't know how to post links, but if you search "FordMuscle", then when you are at their home page, search for "1966GT 350 H" it will take you to the page with pics and the story. It's the black and gold Hertz. Story is mostly correct, except Hot August Nights is in Reno, not Las Vegas,  and we did not take 550 on our trip to Yellowstone. Also, we took 550 to the Cars & Colors show in Telluride, Co. and you can find pics on their web site.  Ron

Is anyone here from Auruba? Last time I was there, I met a man who I think said he was in the Auruba Shelby club. We are going to be in Auruba in Jan. 2020, and if I could find someone there to talk Shelbys with, it would be great. If anyone is there, you can send a personal message, or email me at  Ron

I'm going thru the '66 registry, and the pages are falling out. Will someone at headquarters please address this issue. I'm very careful with it, but have multiple pages falling out. It's only pages I have turned and read. Ron
