OK, I give up, what's the story with the light bar? Its exactly the equipment that we need on our daily drivers around here to keep from hitting deer.

Is that Jacque Passino and was that testing at Sebring - different lights for night driving??

Hey Grumpy, Please share a little of the story behind the photo. Looks like an early Shelby/Mustang meet going on there. Denny

Bought 2378 an Ken Young an some other "Kid" Jim C delivered it down to the Shelby Cobra meet in Norwalk, CT. 1974. Had a good turnout with Cobra's and GT40s. I think most people looked at the car not knowing what it was. When I was 17 I had a 65 Convertible an saw the 66 in a magazine article on a 427 Cobra. Went to the dealership with the mag an told him I wanted one. He checked an said they didn't make them !! Never forgot about it. Then one of my buddys Bob Kerwin saw it at a Shelby meet. While later Ken had it for sale. We drove it for one summer. Then I wanted a perfect car so we took it apart !! CRAZY 25 year old kid !! In 76 we got a rough 427 Cobra. Shelby was then put away all apart. Cali car no rust with 23k on it.

If you are going to have one you may as well have two 6S1855 and 6S1431. Sold 1855 for $5,000 to buy our first house. 1855 had a paint job and the side stripes had not been replaced

I'll bet both the car and the house have increased considerably in value since that time!

Awesome pic!

The house was a converted old beach cottage that we paid $42,000 for "OMG, how are we ever going to afford a $438 house payment" the house behind us was for, sale for $47,000 and it faced the water and had a pier. That's now worth $860,000 and the one we bought is worth $360,000, both are just over 1,000 square feet
Now the house where the car is sitting in the driveway next to the lawnmower belonged to my grandmother, it has just been sold for $1,200,000. It has Ramsey Bay waterfront and has water view of the Chesapeake Bay and the South River from two orhwr sides. Grandparents paid $8,500 in Oct 1958 for it and was sold for $80,000 in 1978 after she passed away. 2 story, four bedrooms, pier, boathouse and a single car garage

Great story, thanks for sharing, don't worry about the missed house with the pier behind.. I have missed a few over the years!

Good times, love the cars!

Thanks Guys.

I tweaked the ride height to my exact preference back then, plus, those Radial T/A's and 10 spokes filled the wheel wells just perfectly.
The Blue Streaks on it today still look too small to me, because I always remember the 'perfect glove' fit of the old combo!
They look too good to be 14" wheels, but as you know, they sure were.

And I'm not talking about just this photo of my car either when I say this, but STANCE IS EVERYTHING. It makes or breaks any car, in my opinion.
A good stance can save a bad car and a bad stance can ruin a good car.

6S2020 - you have given me a new catch phrase that I won't be able to forget - "Killer Stance" - I love it!
