Is the Coupe the first one built? The leading edge of the roof looks very flat. Looks like a Webered Boss 302 in the misidentified R Model.

I was there in 1982 in my black & gold Hertz car. Not sure if that is mine at the end of a row in one of your parking lot pics.  The green '66 convertible was there too.

Any chance you can scan this one at a higher resolution and see if the far end of that row is a hertz car with a black rear bumper?

Awesome pics. Back then the cars were cool, but not a full-on high-dollar collectable like they are now.

I dig how the owners take the cars out in the rain, there is mud on the fenders, and they are just strolling around without a care. Today, such cars are stored in a climate controlled container and only driven on Sundays.

Possibly because the 10 -15,000.00 typical GT350 or 500 in 1982 is 100 -150,000.00 in 2014  Wink .

A 66 Shelby Paxton car with A/C ?

Noticed the shaft length on the Paxton was the early long version, and it is black?
Later Paxton's seemed to have short shafts, and were blue?

This is a photo of the engine compartment of 6S2375, the green '66 GT350 convertible that I purchased from Clifford Hornback.  He added the Paxton to the car when he restored it.  It came with the factory a/c, as did all 4 of the '66 converts.

The George Watters thread is hypnotic.  

Maxjets - This comment of yours really cracked me up! George has repeatedly said how much he has enjoyed sharing his photos with everyone here on the Forum.
              You post good photos too - Thanks for doing so!

Maxjets -

Nice pictures - thanks for sharing.

The BOSS powered GT350 with Webers is not actually an R-Model - it's a well prepared street
car with a lot of "R" options (like my GT350 was back in the day).



Dave Fershstand's 5S247 - and he knew how to make it sing on the track, too   Wink

Jim - kinda looks like me, but it's not - I missed this event  Grin

Love to see these old photos - brings back a LOT of fond memories.

bpoe,

Did you go to A&M or did you just drop in for the show?

This is a bigger scan of the same photo. It was a small photo so not much more is available. When looking at the photo under good light with a magnifying glass there isn't much difference than what you see here.

I was there in my 1969 Lime Gold Coupe.  You didn't take a picture of it?  Hysterical  (we still own it)
I drove down with Tommy Moore (1968 GT500, red, saddle interior), his son Larry (66 red coupe), Dan Bain (blue 1970 Mach), about 5 other members of the newly formed North Texas Mustang Club (NTMC).  I have many similar photos that you have.  the GT40 and the Daytona were then owned by Rick Nagle.  J Bittle and Dave Fernstein had a blast out on the track, trying to out-run each other.  It started raining and I believe J followed track instructions to exit the oval......I think he and Dave had been turning 120 MPH laps......in the rain.  Dave stayed out another lap and came in grinning.  
Dave gave me a ride around Hallet one year in his GT350.   PeelOut

I was speculating.  It does look like you though!

True as can be....Bought my 67gt500 that year....modified and still far from a show car....but beautiful paint on a straight rust free so cal body so for6000 not too bad....it was my daily driver and I hammered the hell out of it.....good times.....now I sweat every time I park it somewhere....kinda sad.....a part of me kind of wishes they hadn't appreciated so much....however I still have the memories and it is stillSUPER FUN to drive!!!!!!just not as often....Generally though every time I take it out someone gets an S.A. History lesson.....That is always cool!!!!!My 2 cents....Trent

My mother has photos from this same event.  I hardly remember much other than Nagel's stuff he brought including the yellow gt40.  I was 5 years old at this event, and i still remember the tunnel getting flooded due to the rain.  David Firsthand lives about 25 minutes from me and i just spoke to Dan Bain on the phone for the first time in 15 years.  My father has since left me his 66, 6s623 and it was at the event as well, and now 33 years later, it is still in the same family.
