Very cool looking Speed Freaks Mustangs, guys!    Mike, Your Dad had a Poncho Grand Prix, 389 C.I. 3 Deuces, w/ 4spd., that's pretty cool for a kids Dad to own!   I wish my Dad had one of those when I was younger, but after thinking about it, I would have gotten into trouble with it!:lol:  When I was 16 my cousin came over to our house to show me what he talked his mom into buying for him so he could drive her around because she didn't drive!  He came over driving a cool Pontiac 2+2, 421C.I., w/3 Dueces, and then he took me for a ride in it and almost lost it!  When it came to fast cars he was always getting into trouble, and he also liked Vettes and going to the Speed Shop!  :club:    Hey guys, did you all like the Wheel Standers that I posted?   I always really thought that Little Red Wagon was pretty cool!   :cool:

Mongoose....Yeah I liked the wheel standers very much. The drag way was very cool. SATURDAY NIGHT AT DETROIT DRAGWAY over the radio I can still hear it today.

Watch the 2 min add from the 60’s below its kind of cool 

Mongoose... u have some really unique items in your collection. No my dad had a 4 door 62 Pontiac I tried to talk him into the 62 Grand Prix. He wouldn’t have any of that. Remember he worked at  ford engineering and drove a poncho.  Brave guy I must say ...maybe that’s why a 4 door.

Thanks Jim!  The headrest covers are going on my 2008 Shelby GT.   It wasn't much of a decision as they were really priced right!:)The guy I bought them from has a Shelby Super Snake with over 1,100.H.P.  He also said that he's been clocked on radar at 187mph and the exhaust sound is deafening at that speed!  He and I talked a little about the new 500 coming out, and I said how every body on the Shelby site had varying opinions on it, but haven't seen it yet!   He told me that he had seen a picture of it and that it is going to produce North of over (900 H.P.)!:drool:   He said it wouldn't make sense for Ford to Produce it with less horse-power because the Dodge Demon is already producing 840 H.P.    I told him who needs, and would use over 900 H.P. and he said he would!   :twister:

Hey Mike,  absolutely loved that very cool old black & white drag video! The Swamp Rat "Big Daddy Don Garlits" and his awesome Dragsters!  And also the very cool Ram-charger Team, (Nice)!:)   Your Dad must of had some balls to take a Pontiac to the Ford plant. He probably took some ribbing from his co-workers at times!

Chris..... I have been using this for years. It peels off if you decide to change or sell your car. It can be purchased at Home Depot  or auto parts store . Also have never had a problem of it peeling off. Even used it to black out my boss 302 wheels  around the outer rim . 

I also painted the body panel black just above the spoiler. The same texture as the spoiler.  The 5.0 also.  What’s yah think ?

The engineering building at that time was not a production plant. Not as many workers and mostly engineers with an eye on the competition. Showing up in a Pontiac maybe woke up some people. Pontiac was a up and coming division at GM . 1962 Ford was just beginning to look at total proformance. Think about what you could buy in 1962 from ford. The 390 was horrible and could not compete with the likes of the 396 or Mopars . The failane came out in 1962 And very few 390’s were in dealerships to purchase. They were still a slug on the streets . The 427 thounderbolts were at the drags but you couldn’t buy one. See below.

Later poncho .....PS..the early 60’s Pontiac was my favorite brand. Not ford. But soon that was about to change for good.

Actually Mike, In some circles I used to hear talk about the 396 C.I. as a big "Boat Anchor", but I and my brother in-law still liked them!  He used to have two 396 C.I., 4spd. Chevys, one was a 1966 Impala SS, and the other was a 1967 Chevy Caprice.  But I still liked my 327C.I.,365 H.P., 4spd. "High Revving" Chevy StingRay!   That Vette and I shut down alot of bigger motors in our time!  It was a very fast car with a 3/4 race cam and running solid lifters with a 180 degree factory high-rise aluminum manifold and Hurst 4spd. with racing springs!  Hey guys, now those were the days when we were young and foolish!:yahoo:   If I remember right, I think on the ford 390 you could really wake the motor up by installing a 428 crank in it!:)

Nice looking Poncho and also the Yellow Vette and also who ever's red Stang that is!  LOL   :lol:  The Vette must be a 67 because I don't see any crossed flags emblem on the front fender.  A old friend of mine, who's now deceased, RIP. had a 1967 convert. Vette, small block and he wanted a big block.  So he decided to build his own 67 convertible 427, Tri-power,435 H.P.,4spd. and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a real factory one or his unless he told you!   

My cousin's Pontiac 2x2 was either a 66 or 67 with the 421C.I. w/ 3 dueces!

Thanks Chris:  I still like all that cool old stuff!   Those "Wheel Standers" drag wagons like the "Little Red Wagon" and Dougs Headers were really cool going down the track.  We used to go down to "Broadway Bob's" Dragway in Union Grove and watch the Wheel Standers and also the Jet cars.    It was really cool when the Jet's afterburners would kick in and start the Timing Shake on fire!:clapping:    And yes, I think that was Doug Thorley!

Mongoon.....The 1965 chevelle with the 327/350 hp. L79 I think was a real sleeper. Yes there was a 396 65 chevelle but very few. Super expensive today. Pontiac beat everyone to the smaller car big engine concept. The 63 tempest with the 326 was born. Then what followed we all know was the GTO. Caught all the other intermediates sleeping. 64 old 442 was a 330 cu with 310 hp. I talked my sister into buying one of those. 4 speed 4 bbl and 2 exhaust. Clever back then. Buick had nothing in 64. Chevelle had nothing in 64. Ford had the mustang coming but no muscle to talk about on the streets of Woodward.

Then came 1966 and everyone wanted a chevelle SS396 with the 375 hp big block ...no boat anchor there with the lighter body. It was a hit on the streets in Detroit. I remember a friend ordered a 67 SS 396 and had a hard time getting the 375 hp in it. Triple black and we were bad ass cruising the big boys. I would offer him a couple of beers so I had an excuse to drive it .I was living at home and going to college at the time. 

I remember back in 62 my dad telling me what he told the guys at work. My son is getting his license soon and all he talks about is Pontiac . Why is that he asked those engineers. I slept and ate Pontiac back in 1962/1967. That changed around 1969 when the mach1 came out. The rest is history. But I still like the old Pontiacs today. Too bad they are so big.

Shelby 101. It’s more satin finish. Definitely not flat. It’s real close to the shine of the front spoiler. You can just about see it right above the spoiler.

Thanks Mike....it’s cheaper than buying an Agent47 grille (to do away with the pony altogether), and I hear those grilles don’t even fit correctly. 

Plus, I added the PJ chrome grille surround, and I’d have to forego that on the Agent47 grille.  So, I guess I’ll be getting me a can of that goo.....thanks buddy!

I remember back in 62 my dad telling me what he told the guys at work. My son is getting his license soon and all he talks about is Pontiac . Why is that he asked those engineers. I slept and ate Pontiac back in 1962/1967. That changed around 1969 when the mach1 came out. The rest is history. But I still like the old Pontiacs today. Too bad they are so big. 

Later :backtotopic:

I too, really like all the cool Chevelles , especially the super sports 396 C.I.!    I liked all kinds of performance cars of all the manufactuers.    Also, don't forget the awesome rare 427 C.I. Impala Super Sports and the Ford Lightwieghts like the Thunder-bolts! And do you remember the Chevy 409s and 348s and the dodge's 426 Wedge and Hemi's!  The 60s thru the early 70s were really Boss years to be a car guy, (Gear head, Motor head, Grease Monkey,Iron Head, etc.)! :cool:    :backtotopic:

FYI taking the slow lane to Hilton Head island S.C. for a week.:dogwalk: With bailey. The resort is in the middle of the island and a bike ride to the beach. It is one of the most beautiful camping resorts we have ever been to. 

:backtotopic:  I will try to post a few diecast pictures before we leave. .:camera: Okey Dokey here you go.  Exact Detail by Lane 1:18 scale Shelby GT 350 . One of my favorites. American Racing Style wheels look great 👍🏻 . Look at the size of the shifter rod ...Holly cow ! The signature is really cool and looks very accurate in size. 

Hope you enjoy .

Later ....:tim_hahn:.Motorhome Mike in the far right slow lane
