  9. Sicaroo...If I wasn't about a 30 hour drive away I'd go look for you...good luck bud.
  10. Hey Sic. I drove thru there a couple of weeks ago for business but no plans to go back anytime soon. Not sure if anyone on here lives nearby. Good luck.
  11. Last day on the Gulf of Mexico. Little bailey is glad to get home. .... Mongoose I cool video but too long to watch today .....maybe on a rainy day
  12. Macman, there was someone who did the conversion and posted a "how-to" online years ago, which I referenced to make them work. After doing so, I had one HID that worked, and the other one wasn't powered. I used the same logic in the writeup and was able to locate a pin connection in the fuse block to power the other HID, and voila! I'm in business. Thank you.
  13. Hey all you guys, check out the (Barn Find) video after 42 years of being stored! !968 GT 500 Shelby, White / blue, and no.# 388, bought originally from Koon’s Ford! The video is almost 20 minutes long and it’s pretty interesting to watch!!! (Check out the barn find post)! Later guys! “GOOSE”
  14. Finally got my ambient air temperature to work. Quite by accident. I hit a piece of trash on the highway late on night and put a gash in my front spoiler. I ordered a new one and as I removed the old one, I noticed one of the wires were crimped. Basically the wires were pinched and almost cut completely through. That's why the read out in the dash would give out crazy numbers when it was raining and the car was underway. I rerouted the repaired wires and and my temperature gauge works perfectly. I didn't have to reset anything. So if your temperature gauge doesn't work, check the wires.
  15. Just for you Mongoose .............. Rootbeer and ice cream really doesn’t sound that good now that you think about it ......
  16. Hey Slo Lane, it’s kind of funny that you mentioned the A & W float for my wife because she hates the taste of them with the root beer and ice cream together! She really doesn’t like the Root Beer! I do remember enjoying them as a kid growing up. Years back there used to be a A &W called Barney’s, and when the Green Bay Packers would win, you could get like 10 hamburgers for $5.00!! The Yenko cars are always nice to see, and there pretty rare! Later bud! “GOOSE”
  17. That's right!!!!….It's a Cat not a Bird!!!......oh boy am I bleeped up...……...
  18. Below is the text from the SAI press release: LAS VEGAS – June 8, 2017 – An initiative to explore new business opportunities has resulted in a special one-off Shelby version of a 1997 Ford Mustang by Shelby American, Inc. The car was recently delivered to its owner in Central Texas after the team at Shelby American reimagined the car as if the company had built it new in 1997. “Shelby American has an extensive history of creating experimental cars and one-off customer vehicles during the 1960s,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “Because we’re still hot rodders at heart, we accepted this project in that tradition as part of our global business expansion initiative. Our goal was to create new opportunities for the company with projects that inspire the staff as we apply new technologies to other programs.” Shelby American’s roots with these types of projects stretch back to one-off cars like the “Green Hornet” and “Little Red” from Shelby fifty years ago; the company’s history includes experimental cars like the twin turbo Ford Shelby GT500 named “Code Red” in the 2000’s. An unusual opportunity from Central Texas was the latest in this line. “Joseph Tice of Central Texas owned a 1997 Mustang GT and approached us to build a one-off car, as if there was a Shelby version offered that year,” explained Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “He wanted it to look OEM, but feature contemporary technology and performance. It was much more of a challenge than anyone initially thought. The car was in a state of partial assembly when it arrived at Shelby American in Las Vegas. First, a “creative brief” with the parameters, goals and vision for the car was created. Then a handpicked team of craftsmen, led by Vice President of Operations Vince LaViolette, completely took the car apart. No system was left untouched, from the interior to the new drivetrain, brakes, cosmetics and suspension. “We literally took the Mustang down to the bones,” said LaViolette. “We hand built a supercharged 4.6L engine, rebuilt the transmission to handle it, transformed the suspension and added an incredible braking system. Inside and out, it became a showcase, but retains a factory feel. It even has a special badge, ‘CSM100SPECIAL’ with a serial number for the official Shelby Registry. It’s the ‘Shelby that might have been’ if we’d been turning out Ford Mustang based cars in 1997. It’s a total sleeper that can kick tail on the street and mystify people with its unique provenance.” Delivered on May 16, 2017, to a very satisfied Mr. Tice, the “Racer Red” 1997 car includes: Performance equipment Rebuilt 4.6L V8 engine P1SC Procharger with Intercooler Flowmaster Exhaust Eibach Suspension upgrade Adjustable Clutch Quadrant Short Throw Shifter Performance Driveshaft Body components New Shelby paint with factory racing stripes Body Appearance Package Performance wheels and tires New hood Shelby engine badge Interior components New complete interior including seats, carpet and dash pad Shelby gauge Pod Custom programs are not new as Porsche has its “Exclusive” tailoring program and even Aston Martin has its “Q” program. But this project went much further than most carmakers. “We built this car for someone who believed the only limits should be his imagination,” said Conway. “We’ve not yet determined if we’ll repeat this type of project again, but it certainly challenged our team. The success of this car certainly demonstrates the technical prowess and capabilities of Shelby.”
