I corrected some of my information on the Moffat Boss 302. What a remarkable history that car had in Australia. You can google it for some great old and new videos. Until I did a little research I had no idea how famous this Boss 302 is around the world. 

This car won a remarkable 101 races in its day :hat_tip:The car is now in a collection of 70 race cars owned by the Bowden family in Australia. The picture below is from the Goodwood festival of speed  back in 2009. Like I said it’s world famous.

Ford was involved with this car just as much as the PJ Boss 302 over here. Bud Moore did the work before it was shipped off to Australia. That 302 put out 485 hp back in 1969. It had a Weber carb for every cylinder ! That wasn’t allowed over here. I had a Bud Moore intake on my 70 boss and boy would it bog. I put some race gas in it at Road Atlanta and that helped a little. Last picture there she is in the S’s at Road Atlanta. It had a roll bar and harnessing. For some reason the guy before me put a mach1 fog lights on her.

My 1:18 diecast Moffat Boss 302 is now in a glass cabinet with other famous iconic race cars . 

Things go better with Coca Cola .:bananapiano:

Here is a 70 Boss #57 by Welly 1:18 scale . I always liked the black out treatment on the rear of the 70 Boss. The big ass blue oval on the race car was cool and many Z/28’s saw it during and after the race. :rant2:

I really like the black out treatment on the current Mustang also

Hey Guys, just posting a few pics of different things.  Hey Slow Lane, my cat was looking for your "little doggie"!!! LOL.   A few pics of coke stuff for Slow Lane! One pic of a partial wall from my car room. Also a cool pic of a red 63 Split-Window Sting Ray. Also a pic of my wife's 1987 Mercury Cougar, 20th Anniversary Edition!  We bought it brand new, and this model is a very rare and special car!  We currently still own this beauty, and there was a total of about 5200. models produced!  5000 for the American market and about 200 for Canada market! This car is pretty cool because it also features a handling suspension similar to the Mustang GT of that year. It has Quad shocks, and beefier sway bars, front and rear, and also lower profile and performance tires.   It also has some cool luxury items, like ultra-suede seats w/ red piping, cool embroidered emblems in the floor mats, digital dash, heated and powered seats. And also automatic dimming lights and a special paint w/ no clear-coat, and special emblems with gold coating among other items!!!!!    P. S. Some of my pics didn't turn out!!!

Later!

Mike I also like the all black rear treatment on those. Another reason I did the tail lamp treatment on the Gurney, to match the proprietary deck lid panel.

Cool pics Goose! Those Cougars were indeed a lot like the Mustang GT’s of that era. Reminds me of the LS7’s (?) of the time too. Always wanted one of them. If I’m you, I keep that baby too!!

A look at the rear of a Moffet 69 in contract to the previous 70 Boss.

A look at a weak moment with a computer and a credit card and a really weak moment for the Ford GT

Lastly, special paint GT500 KR from Acme. This is from the defunct Mustang Magazine Legend series. Good magazine, and Tom Shaw was a force in Mustang publishing for many years. Note the tool box in the truck, there is also a full spare kit and serial number in the trunk as well.

Mongoose or Fast lane..as the song goes .....“ things go better with Coca Cola “:donald_farr: .....and that’s some cool stuff. I like the 64 corvette hub cap also. Never owned a cougar but would have if the XR7 came around dressed out as a Dan Gurney or PJ model .

Sun Star makes this model in 1:18 scale but I don’t have it. 

Click on the jp2  in blue to see Bud Moore ,Dan Gurney and PJ. The picture really shows how tall Dan was like 6’4”. That’s why the Gurney bubble in the Ford GT MK IV. ...Duh !

The secod jp2 is the add for the XR7 . Cool  ?  “Mercury the Man’s car “  really ! I see a lot more women drivers in the past. 

Hey mongoose ...now that’s a cat  ? in the add. Don’t show it to your little pussy cat:hysterical:. Just teasing u. Baileys first encounter with a cat was ...what the hell is up with all the hissing and stuff ??

Haha. Hey Mike, I literally just finished my second cup of joe. I landed last night and didn’t get to bed until 11pm mountain (2am eastern). I’m trying to find my glasses now........ you know I can’t do a thing without ‘em!! :hysterical: 

The a/c is set to 83F in the garage. I went out there as soon as I got here to make sure the “babies” were all OK. It felt nicer out there than in the house!! :doh:

Wow I missed that ...it is cool. Now Chris go buy you a 1970 Shelby GT500 and put those letters on the trunk. How’s the temp in the garage.:cold:. Got that mustang emblem blacked out yet. ;)  That’s a cool wall in your garage.  I especially like the PJ boss picture with the 70 and two 69’s . Where did you get that may I ask ? 

Mongoose gave some flimsy excuse about blowing a hose on his vacuum cleaner or something. He can’t vacuum the house now. He’s probably too busy petting his cat ?

Hey come on over Felix and let’s sit a spell. Shot gun ! That’s cat talk for I got the roof seat. 

That was my first collector car , but those cats could care less. Cat prints all over the car the next day.:gaah:Thanks fellas . Those are felines for yah.:hysterical2:. but I still love em ....maybe ! 

Three deuces and a 4 speed and a 389 .....I can Still hear that song today.

Sun Star makes a 1:18 scale model see below ...it is identical to my old GTO..minus the  ? ?

Hey Slow Lane Mike, love the pic of the two black cats hanging out on your goat, very cool in my book!!  Most cats are pretty cool and there all different in their traits. Years back we had a black "Ferral cat" that we tamed and he ended up being really cool!!   I also had a few cat paw prints on my Shelby's front fender before I took it out this year.  The ferral cat that my wife feeds must have been in the garage once when we had to get the snow-blower out!  Your 64 Goat reminds me alot of the red 65 Goat I once owned. The rims were different, I think mine had the rare Rally 1s and center caps on them!   Also on my wife's 87 Cougar I could take that car  and corner on a dime when it was new, excellent handling when on dry pavement.  Originally back in 1987 we were looking to buy a Mustang GT, but we weren't very impressed with it's cheap looking interior. My brother-inlaw was working for a Lincoln-Mercury Dealer at the time and he called us up to tell us they just got in a new rare cool car and that we should come down and see it!  It was a very cool car and the rest is "History"!!!  Also years back I almost bought a 1969 Cougar Eliminator, 390,4spd from a friend's brother until I found out it had a fair amount of putty in it! A while back I was looking for a 428 Cobra-Jet Cougar but there pretty rare and hard to find and also expensive!   :cool:

Later!

Some time ago Hot Wheels issued a set of cars that replicated some of Jay Lenos collection. To the best of my knowledge these are unique castings to this set, and very highly detailed.
