Here is a photo of 0100 taken by Motor Trend magazine on 12/12/66.

Hello,

The Shelby American Collection was open for business as usual yesterday.  The fires were approximately 15-20 miles south-southeast of where the museum is located.

Thanks,

I am looking for a rebuildable C6AE-8505-B water pump with a 6J date code for an FE engine.  Please let me know if you have one and are willing to let it go.

Shelby American History / Re: RIP Bob Bondurant
November 13, 2021, 10:29:34 PM
The very first vintage race I ever attended was over Labor Day weekend in 1988 in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  I got to watch Bondurant win the big-bore feature race driving CSX3261 which was owned by Chek Beuf at the time.  Got to talk with Bob a few times over the years at the Shelby American Collection Christmas parties and fundraisers.  In 2012 I was able to get him to autograph the back of a photo that I had taken of him after he had won that race in Steamboat back in 1988.  Just look at the smile on his face!  He remembered winning that race and said it had been a lot of fun.  He will be missed by many that were lucky to know him.  Godspeed to one of SAI's greatest drivers!!!

This past Saturday, 11/06, I drove 0100 from our house over to the Shelby American Collection in Boulder and put the car back on display.

Yes, flange up.

Hello Dave,

Just double checking with you on this.  The flange on these early taillight frames goes on top of the lens, and not the bottom of the lens?

Thanks,
Eric

Those Calicommies!

Do you have a picture of it on the car? It's really nice.

I've seen the 16" ten spokes.


Hello Doug,

Unfortunately, I do not.  I do have some photos of the wheels on a '67 Shelby convertible tribute car.  I hope these help you.

Thanks,
Eric

  So, if you are going to spend 3K on some custom wheels in the 17" size, could you not order them to look a lot more like a Magstar?

Hello Rod,

This is a 17" wheel that looks pretty darn close to a Magstar.  Certainly close enough for driving around with current high performance tires and sitting in the garage without having to worry so much about flat spotting the tires.

Thanks,
Eric

WOW!  It sure does!. I think you just cost me a lot of money Eric?  ::)

Hello Doug,

The wheel was made by Mike Stallings.  He used to own Wheel Vintiques.  He now owns Circle Racing wheels.  Last time I had any contact with him was in September of last year and he was in the middle of moving from Commiefornia to Texas.  Let me know if you want his phone number.

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Eric,
I measured the angle as about 50 degrees....hard to pinpoint exact with the bottom stainless trim in place.
Hope this helps out
Regards R.

Yes, it helps.  THANK YOU!!!

July 18, 2021, 05:29:08 PM
Hello Everyone,

Can one of you please take a measurement off your car and tell me the angle of the windshield in relation to the cowl?  My car is not here at home so I cannot do this myself.

Thanks!

Hello Everyone,

Here is the second of what I think are the two neatest photos of 0100 that show the "3S" license plate.  This color photo was taken on 12/9/66 for Sports Car Graphic.

Eric, It was great talking to you yesterday. Very much looking forward to seeing the three redheads together in public at last.
Can't hardly wait!!

Hello Brent,

I enjoyed our phone conversation yesterday.  Thank you, and thanks to Brian Styles and Jason Billups for setting the wheels in motion to make this public reunion finally happen.  I am looking forward to attending your event and hope that 0100, 0131, and 0139 will be well received.

Eric
