Bob,
I checked the Registry to save a picture of the 1967 GT350 and 1940 was listed as 67210F8A01940.  Do you have a record of the correct VIN for the car in the picture?
Thanks,
Dennis

ill try and dig it up.

Was it car #1951?

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  Roll Eyes . I didn't know what I didn't know. Wink  . 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 Grin) . KC Black Jade is the one that introduced me to the Mid America show some years prior ,not sure when.

Thanks Bob,
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?

Bob,
I don't recall exactly when I introduced you to Mid America--it's just been too long ago. It's amazing how time can pick up a head of steam without us hardly noticing.
Anyway, here's another pic from that day:



I could've sworn I had a close up of your "Caution Fan" sticker but I can't seem to locate it at the moment.  Grin
