From here: http://www.capecodmustang.com/about.shtml

Cape Cod Mustang started it's life at Tango Classic Automobiles in Bellingham Massachusetts in 2001 and brings together buyers, sellers and enthusiasts of 1965 through 1970 Shelby Mustangs.

In 2007, Bret Matteson purchased Tango Classic Automobiles from Jeff Taylor, CEO and founder of Monster.Com. Bret has been a long time Shelby owner and his interest in original Shelby Mustangs started with the purchase of his first Shelby, a 1967 GT 350. Shelby Mustang.Com is not affiliated with Shelby Auto's located in Las Vegas Nevada or Carroll Shelby Enterprises. CapeCodMustang.Com's focus is locating used and abused 1965-1970 Shelby Mustangs and bringing original Shelby Mustangs back to life.

We are not a dealer or endorser of Carroll Shelby's automobiles from the post 1970 era.

We are not a dealer of any Carroll Shelby merchandise and strongly support Mr. Shelby's Children Foundation.

Finally, we work side by side with the Shelby American Automobile Club and have supported their efforts to keep Mr. Shelby's automobiles and contribution to the automotive industry in the public eye. We are also members of Team Shelby, Mr. Shelby's new and exciting automobile club that has focused their efforts on the new Shelby Mustangs of the 21st Century.

According to the registry, Tango bought 2942 from the salvage yard, but that happened before Brett bought Tango, so I agree that he doesn't really have anything to do with this.  Unless he has any knowledge he'd be willing to share.

 Looks like another "how much of the car equals THE car?" deals. We all seem to agree that "back in the day" when the cars had FAR less value , the repair costs outweighed the "repaired to original" value. Now days you could throw $100,000 at a wrecked "tub" and still potentially make a few dollars. Hopefully that is the case here , not the rebody reported to have been done in '04.

He bought the used car dealer mentioned in the registry summary as having purchased the wreck in question.  Just public info, don't read anything nefarious into it.

I was not asking about Brett - Who owns or owned it does not play into this at all - The car stands as it is represented today - I know Mecum reads the registry - I guess "as-is, where-is" wins again.............. Undecided

That's correct. I was really surprised the owner let it go at that price.

Side note - the consigner had one heck of a time getting the retracted top cover on in the staging lanes. I'm guessing they didn't have a cross-tip screw driver to loosen the metal bracket on the backside of the rear seat to slide the front of the cover in  Wink

  A couple of things:  CS used to do his autographs for free.  Like on my 67 (0036) at the Indiana SAAC Spring fling back in the 1990s.  It was the year he drove the Viper pace car.  Well, I'm not taking them off now.  And he signed it twice.  Center dash piece and the right visor.  You folks need to relax a little.

  The auction: watched a 70 GT 500 sportsroof go through.  It was black with a white/parchment interior.  White on the hood scoop bulges. Hammered fo $63,000.  In my opinion, 428 Mach I's can get that.

For some reason Rodney the new "cliche" thing is to bash cars with his signature. It somehow makes people feel good to criticize something that a lot of other people enjoy and are proud they have.

There are so many things on these cars that we are very passionate about or cant stand. The dreaded caution fan sticker, stripes on our cars, CS'S signature etc. I prefer the first two but could do without the latter, we all need to be cognizant of each others passions without going beyond the simple banter that many of us enjoy, Passion runs deep weather Racing,showing,Driving etc just get them out there for all to see. Many young people don't even know that this very special time of cars existed and us oldies just love these old dinosaurs any which way they are prepared, Chug a Lug
