  1. Jim, If you look at my profile, by clicking on my name,(left column, above the Shelby logo), see if you are able to view my "Gallery" Sam
  2. Weird, all of the photos are in my gallery album, but aren't showing up here. Sam
  3. Hey Jim, let me dig around and see if I can get you the pictures!
  4. Oh, the stroker came from a drag car and the Tiger was impossible to drive until it was re-cammed! About 400 or so horses and a real scream to drive now! Currently building something a bit milder (331) to make it a tad more liveable! Sam
  5. The original owner pulled mine out of a junkyard and spent 20 plus years building it up to the condition you see here! Only raced a couple of times, never at Pikes Peak! Incidently, Maxwell Smart drove an Alpine that had Tiger badges - they needed room under the hood for the pop up machine gun and the V-8 wouldn’t have worked, hence the Alpine with V-8 sound dubbed in! Sam
  6. There’s a rumor floating around that someone is working with Scott Drake to produce some of those no longer available parts SGT owners crave. Wait and see! Sam
  7. Median prices are in the 20’s. Heck, I’ve got mine up for $20k, and I think that’s a bargain for all the goodies, even with 64k miles! Sam
  8. I supercharged my SGT myself at home! Went with the Edelbrock EForce. Straight forward install, a couple of minor hiccups, but the reward was plentiful, smooth, sneaky, POWER! She has a tick over 64k miles on her now - and is also for sale, as I have other projects keeping me busy! (See SGT classified ads) Sam
  9. 1966 Mark 1A with a 347 Stroker!
  10. You should have seen my little "shortcut" on the back straight bus-stop! Sam
  11. I changed stock rotors for the same sized drilled/slotted Baer Decelarotors and more aggressive pads, along with stainless lines and high temp fluid. I now have the GT500 Brembos, so the barely used Baer rotors are sitting in my garage - anybody want them? Say $100 plus shipping for all four? Sam
  12. Yep, cold tires, was having trouble myself! Sam
  13. A standard "blow dryer" doesn't get hot enough but a heat gun will - it does require care, however, it can melt plastic and burn paint! Best time to remove stripes is in the Summer - let it sit outside in the bright sun and this will help soften the vinyl. All you ever wanted to know about the scoops is in the Hood Scoop thread! Sam
  14. Thanks for the input! The list so far: Koni Sport Adjustable Shocks/Struts Ford GT500 Strut Mounts Max Motorsports Caster/Camber Plates BMR Front End K-Member, LCAs BMR Rear Upper/Lower Control arms with relocation brackets New Sway Bar Bushings all around Almost $3000 in upgrades! Whew! This will take some creative "slush fund" work! I had previously installed the Fays2 Watts Link, so that's a little less money I have to spend! Sam
  15. Well, I've nearly reached the 65k mileage mark, and the SGT is past beginning to show it's age - at least suspension wise, that is! I'm going to go through the stock suspension - struts, shocks, bushings, etc. and was looking to see what others have done - maintain stock or upgrade? I'm on a bit of a budget, but will upgrade where necessary - front/rear LCAs for instance - but will consider all suggestions. Not really time critical, so I plan on gathering all the parts, then do a all-at-once-and-done weekend, (or two), install! Couple of things I'm looking at - Koni Sport adjustable Sport shocks/struts, GT500 front LCAs, Ford Racing front upper strut mount, Ford Racing bump stops. I occasionally track the car, and do some rather spirited street driving! Again, would love to hear thoughts/experiences from you all! Thanks, Sam
  16. Yes, we indeed had a great time - thanks again to Scott for being the lead! I definitely need to work on the suspension, something has gotten out of shape underneath, hopefully just a tire out of balance or something minor, but there's a vibration that comes up around 80 mph! Must have happened on one of the less-than-stellar road surfaces - probably the speed bumps that South Carolina has cleverly installed on the interstate! Vic and Jim will attest that I'm also the official "Possum Killer" after smacking a possum on I-77 on the way home! I also think the possum took out one of the fuel tank shields as the fuel supply/return lines seem very exposed now! Has anyone with an SGT coupe got photos of the fuel tank area that I can use for comparison? Sam
  17. 20" just seemed to be to much wheel for me - stuck with 18" staggered American Muscle Bullits for awhile, then when the big brakes came along, found a set of 19" staggered Boss wheels shod with Nitto Invos, 285/35 in back, 255/40 up front. Sam
  18. Jim, Unfortunately, I can't leave on Friday as I have prior commitment! I'll just motor along solo - no big deal! See y'all in Boone! Sam
