OK, did anyone else read the footnote on #966 in the new registry - something seems odd.

Howard and I are untangling this story and will be including something in the Spring '11 issue of the Shelby American. Note: disregard the Scott Turner info in the registry—that was based on a typo or misread number. Turner's car was 6S906.

So Rex Youngquist owned an apartment building in Lawrence Kansas,
vacant land in Kansas, and a 1966 GT-350.  Then he left it all and
moved to the 'Nation of Kansas'. Wink  Oh, and 'Kansas" has a mailing
address in Panama. Wink  Weird story. HeadSpin HeadSpin

So if i put a Shelby Motors frame on my Volvo that obviously makes it rare and valuable, great, why didnt i think of that?

It is the only volve to be modified by Shelby American post title, tho, that is for another thread and another time  Grin

Best,
