An old saying...My comment might get deleted, however here goes: "If it has wheels or tits, it will give you problems"

Quote from: shelbydoug on July 16, 2024, 08:07:51 AMOf course, this is all about today. No one can predict what any of the current crop of cars will be in 20 years.

Personally I've already learned that essentially these vehicles are supercharged computers on wheels.

From experience, there is no way today that any manufacturer has found a desire or a method of providing necessary everyday operating necessities on existing 20 year old cars now.

If the chip dies, unless you can build your own, the thing is dead.

I personally will stay with my '60s Shelby vehicles and will admit to you that yes, once in a while, I need to redo the points in the distributor.

Which motor vehicle version of Windows do they run on? 10? 11? What do you do when their CPU's are no longer supported?

You boys and girls can bicker on whatever you would like. I suppose that is what grudge match racing is all about but personally I'm going to stay away from any one of these things. It's bad enough that I have a bunch of dead computers now taking up valuable space.

I certainly do not have the room to store broken supercharged computers. They don't even make good planters and even the mice don't like to chew up the wiring.

Which motorized version of Windows do they run on? !0? 11? What do you do when those versions are no longer supported in the future?



Well...
Your late model Boss 302 has one of those 'supercharged computers'. Its also drive by wire...hopefully you won't have issues with that. Once the 'Service traction control' or 'reduced engine power' light comes on...your screwed. Expect an expensive repair(s). Not trying to scare you, just giving you a heads up when it happens.

It is a close shave between the Boss 302 and a Challenger 392. Both are great cars!



Absolutely agree!

After watching your other video, its a 6 cylinder rental. Bad comparison my friend. How about 'comparing' a 6 cylinder Mustang to a V-8 Challenger?

I also noticed the workers smoking, using no gloves, and the painters had no masks on. Yikes!

Nothing will change. As usual, the spammer/troll is posting on this thread also...

Other then the hole added in the bottom for the added different choke valve after aprox feb 1969 I am not aware of any nuance differences in the base. I wouldn't be surprised if there were.



Yes, the Ca. cars had a hole/hose to the charcoal canister on the passenger side. IF the cars were sold after January 1970, and or for all 1970 models.
CA was excluded by the OP if you read all of the posts.




Yes, I did read it. Was just expanding some knowledge to the topic my friend.

Isn't it funny that we all were there on that day, but didn't know each other then.

It would be fun to find some out-take photos and see who's in the background.  I "may" still have some old B&W proof sheets in some old story envelope somewhere. But, where to look...? 

Scott: Who were you shooting for that day?




Van,
I was running my car....a fun day, no work.

Quote from: 98SVT - was 06GT on May 13, 2024, 07:12:32 PMRE: The 1986 GLHS vs GT350 article.
It was written by Rick Titus. The GLHS used was a normal off the shelf model. However when all the hate mail rolled in to Hot Rod CS decided to send one to the next COCOA Willow Springs event. That car had another 40 hp and cleaned up. I was at both events and penned a couple of the pro letters to the editor that showed up later - yeah another myth blown up. There was one Corvette that had been giving Rick some problems. Typical low talent vintage guy. Slow in the corners but spent enough on the engine so it was a rocketship on the straights. Rick and I were in the car and were all over the guy in the turns but when we'd get to the back or front straight where passing was allowed he'd pull ahead. After a couple laps we went in and RT went into attack mode and eliminated the Vette in short order with my 200 pounds of ballast out of the car.



Yep, I was there also. The Chrysler guys rented 4 garage stalls. Ran the 'ringer' GLHS cars, then immediately put them in the garages, and closed the doors so no one can see what they were doing. They made their point. However, as we all know those cars were far from stock, and NO production GLHS would run that fast.

Its because the OP could not handle the truth, and had to resort to his usual insults without knowing the facts. Ignorance is bliss to him. AND ego.

Center caps for mag wheels. Shelby ever the marketing genius, sold just about anything.
