Yes it is my car. No slant grill. 1940 I believe. I had Shelbys of other years before that but that car was my first attempt at a assemblyline type restoration. If I had only known then what I know now
. I didn't know what I didn't know.
. My little daughter in the picture is now 37 . That is me talking to a unknown fellow enthusiast. I think I over did the Saturday night banquet (and a few others
) . KC Black Jade is the one that introduced me to the Mid America show some years prior ,not sure when.
I should have caught the chrome bezels on the lights as a hint of the straight grille version. The emblem just looks further back for some reason.
From the photos I've seen of your amazing Acapulco Blue GT500, you've stepped up you game since then.
Nearly 30 years later, looking back isn't always so easy. I have photos of my daughter in the driver seat of my old Mustang convertible as a toddler.
She was grabbing the steering wheel and driving to nowhere. Cute as anything! Now she's 16 and could care less. Where did I go wrong?
