Really nice video, and nice to see a true no option car! Just like most of them probably were back in the day. No spoiler, no louvers, no black centered Magnums, no deluxe interior. Raw, serious performance.

Hey Falcon, yes those 69 Boss 302s were pretty well base / no option cars, raw w/ serious performance.  But because of the lack of options, that’s the exact reason I chose to own one Hell of a “Torque Monster”  and a great performer in the 69,428 Cobra-Jet Ram-air w/ Shaker all decked out with all the trimmings too at a very reasonable price and hard to beat, just saying!

Hey all you car guys, being it’s a little slow on here, I thought some of you might enjoy seeing some very interesting one-off car designs that never were seen on public roads before.  The designer’s of these one-off cars had quite the imagination and a few were pretty far-out for the time.  I have 20 pics of cars that are one-offs, and there from the 1950s to 1960 period. If you enjoy seeing them, I’ll try and post 5 more each day, I got them from my brother in law who got them from a friend of his.   Hope you enjoy them, I sure did!!!   :thumbsup:

Later guys!          Mongoose       :peelout:

Well, I finely managed to have a little time to uncover and unplug my battery maintainer on my 08 Shelby GT and take it out of it’s winter hibernation storage.  Took my wife for a drive in it to pick-up her favorite Veggie gourmet pizza from Papa Murphys and then stopped at Culver’s drive thru.   On the way home, even with my wife along, I did manage to pull a few gears and  guess what, that big “Smile” magically appeared.  Like I said before, miles of smiles, best bang for the buck in my book...   :cool:              :peelout:

Hi JD,

Was thinking about you and Val a few days ago and hope all is OK over there in FL.

We are all OK here and from this Friday events are up to 100 persons so should be having a car run next month. Sick of having to shovel horse poop out of the garage LOL.

This waiting for the new GT500 is doing my head in. The way Ford selects who gets a build is all wrong. Should be how the vehicle is ordered. I see some guys that ordered after me have a VIN and an approx. build date.  Can't complain too much tho, thinking about those unlucky guys with orders from when the order banks opened.

Well off now for our morning walk.

Sam

Thanks Chris,

May see it built one day. Has been on order beginning of this year. Should have stepped off the curb and ordered when the order banks opened last year.

Thanks to Jim "07gt500conv" on this forum and Tom for setting me up at the USA end with the info.

Never thought I would spend that kind of money for a mustang. Hey, we are here for a good time, not a long time and you can't take it with you.LOL.   Well maybe you can but the casket would be a bit heavier tho........

That Gurney price seems an OK price. Would have that than an SGT. Gurney is a way better spec'd car and rarer.

I sure hope we have great Weather and calm Seas for NASA on Saturday.  SpaceX will try to launch again at 3:22pm.  If all goes well, and I pray it does, Tesla Stock will rocket up but if it doesn't, GOD forbid, Tesla Stock will crash.  I hope I will be able to see it go up from Carabelle Florida.

Thanks BB for sharing this fun video with Jay and his awesome 63  1/2 Falcon Sprint.  I’m totally with Jay that it’s set up just like I would like too.   A rad wood steering wheel and torque thrust wheels to boot, pretty cool in my book, thanks...    :rating:

Hey all you car guys, I know I promised some more of those one-off car designs that were never seen on public roads, so here’s 5 more from some of the car designers from the 1950 thru  1960 years.  Hope you all enjoy them, some of them are pretty unique..         Later guys!           Mongoose   :peelout:                 

P.S.   The last pic is a Oldsmobile and the front end reminds me a little of a 50s Corvette, just saying!
