Just a quick question. On other forums you can block other members posts from appearing

Is that an option here?

IMHO they jumped the shark with this new design. It's barely passable now visually and I can't imagine it will age well at all

I wouldn't pay sticker let alone 90k over

Meanwhile I saw the of them ZO6 old body style at a show and the poor owner needed to call security to get me away from it. Simply perfect
Was at the AACA Museum today in Hershey Pa

A lovely gent pulled in with a 65 GT350. He took the time to chat to me about the car and it's amazing history. Being stolen years ago and returned to him in 2010

Also spoke to another gent with a 67 GT350 with an equally neat story about the cars restoration

I am sorry I don't have names but gents like this making Shelbys even more interesting are what it's all about. Thank you gents
The replacement grills are plastic which is a giant bummer. They have little
Screws with spacers to affix them in the original panels. From a visual standpoint they look much better than heavily pitted originals

Not many folks have the funds in hand to outright buy a done car. And we all know VERY few done cars are done. But what a fair few folks can do is pay 50% of the cost of a done car and add money over time

I sell projects, driver quality and nice local show stuff and the projects get a lot of interest. They want the "done" car but can afford the project car

And yes. Many never get finished and some get offered back to me

I had a 67 Convertible years ago. I had Powered by Ford in Orlando put on the same blower. I took it for the first drive and though this thing is down on power! He explained to me how there is a cross over point before which the blower uses more power than it produces. That was an expensive lesson for a young lad. I like low down grunt rather than high RPM power for the street. They look neat but not my cup of tea now

Many Amazing cars here in Europe. I have sold a fair few and a friend who sells rare stuff has sold many more than me. You go to shows and see stuff that would raise eyebrow in the USA. Lovely folks who support the hobby to the fullest
About three years ago I found a guy at a show selling cut up commercial drum sander belts for sand paper. The backing is heavy material like a cloth

The stuff never wears out. I have pieces well over a year old that I use
It's like a canvas backing. I will never use paper sandpaper again

I would chat with Randy. He advised me when I was having fits with a rebuilt T-10 popping out of gear

Then another one popping out of gear

He suggested Hooked sliders which solved the

I always chat with folks at car shows when showing my cars. I have sold my Shelby now but always asked people if they wanted to sit in it. Most often they did.

My 68 "Bullitt" below at the NEC in Birmingham England. This little guy was beyond excited to sit in the car

You have to encourage the youth as they are the future of the hobby

I know you are hunting these

Just a thought or two

Is it worth the investment to purchase ten Marti reports. One for each possible iteration of the VIN. Would the visible clues on the shell possibly assist with matching the shell to a report. I.E. colour or date codes on sheetmetal?

Also, and I don't know how you would go about it, can you get the metal scanned in some way? I am thinking I have seen people discover hidden stampings (due to damage) with some sort of scan
