So refreshing to see the current trend of restored 67's without lemans stripes.

In the words of Ozzy Ozbourne, "Momma, I'm comin' home!"  Cool one



0022 is officially on its way to Texas!  I can't wait.  It's supposed to be here tonight, and last night was like Christmas Eve.

Side note:  it still surprises me how much emotion and passion can be stirred by a vehicle.  Don't get me wrong - I'm a passionate guy and I have been passionate for years, regarding cars, especially Shelbys.  What surprised me was the nostalgia I felt in seeing the guys who have been working so hard on this car for well over a year watch it get loaded (via pics, of course).  The guys at Big 3 Performance have become more than just people putting my car together - they've really become family.  And, it's hard to see a piece of me leaving their shop.

The good news is that there is at least one more cars they are working on for me...but that's another story for another thread.  Let's just say this next car won't be a real Shelby (although, it will have similar stylings), and it won't be close to stock.  Grin

Thanks!

Yes, they dyno'd it for me after they broke in the rear end and got everyting setup.  It exceeded expectations.  PeelOut

The weather here in San Antonio is supposed to be in the mid-70s to low 80s through the weekend with only a slight chance of rain on Saturday.  Yeah, I'm pumped!!   Grin

YEE HA! Another pony comes home to Texas. Can't wait for you to get it out and give us a road test review.

I'm gonna step outside tomorrow here in Houston. If your car is home I expect to smell burning rubber. The wind is blowing west to east you know. Ha, ha!

Most certainly, Steve!  I don't expect the first set of rears to last very long.  PeelOut

Here's where the driver was as of noon...not that I'm counting hours, minutes, seconds...

LOL!  I hear you.  This pic was sent via the carriers en route. 

I'm an North/South kidda guy myself.   Grin

The Eagle has landed!

The shippers arrived around 10pm last night - YES!  Here are some shots of the trailer and the car.





Of course, I couldn't just put the car in the garage - she needed to be driven!  Plus, it need gas; which made for a great excuse to take her out.



What an AWESOME looking and running car!  I love everything about it.  So much so, that I didn't get to sleep until 1:30am.  I may be dragging at work today, but I have a huge smile on my face!  Grin

Speaking of work, I wasn't about to not drive this car to work (we have security access and a monitored parking lot, so I feel safe).  Here's a shot of me driving the car to work (yes, it was misting a bit, but I just couldn't wait!) and a shot of it in my parking spot (I park next to my boss - he and I get along very well, so I'm not worried about door dings  Grin).





Oh, the fun is just beginning!!!   Chug a Lug

Congratulations on getting the car home. Was the seat belt light on the whole time you were driving or did it go off after a few seconds?

Great question.  It was on the whole time.  Any ideas?

Congrats  Chug a Lug  

I think it's safe to say you are very happy and should be!  Wink

Are you sure the light that stays on isn't the fun indicator showing overboost?  Grin

Oh yea, and how many trips are you going to make the window to look out at your car? Will you be putting in a full day?  Doubt it!   Grin

There is a timer in the system, or should be, it may be missing or not timing out.  You may want to un-connect it (there is a connection close to the light) until you can get it corrected, as the bulb can melt the red lens if too close or on too long.

Not at my office, maybe someone else can comment or provide an image, if I remember correctly it is a long 2.5 inch rectangle module with two connection at 90 degrees to each other and next to each other at one end.

LOOKS Great - keep having fun!!

JD - car 26

Look at this link, note the reply #6 by Bob G the image won't download as it does not have a title but notice the module in the image at the right.  Look for that towards the bottom of the instrument cluster above the steering column.

OK, got it - more than one way to skin a cat!!

See attached look to see if you have the thing the arrow is pointing to.  If you do it may be "bad" if there isn't one you need it, maybe its in the extra parts boxes??
