I guess there are probably no SAAC members in the Houston area, but as a 40 year resident of that great city, and having lived through many hurricanes and floods, my best wishes and prayers go out to any members in the Houston area, stay safe.

Yes, Steve Forristall is out there.  I was just thinking of him and his car (I believe it's 5S048, could be easily wrong about the number though).  He did my pre purchase inspection.  Best of luck to you and everyone else out there.

My daughter works in Galveston and lives outside of Houston. Fortunately she was spared the worst so far and to this point only lost electric and now has lakefront property!

A lot of folks have been hit hard and I know there is still a lot of rain in the forecast so I hoping the best for everyone dealing with Harvey.

Yep, there are a few of us down here. No water in the house… yet. A miraculous story for another time. Thank you for all your kind thoughts & prayers.

Watching the news doesn't catch the total scope of the flooding . Hope everyone is safe

I need to call Steve and see how he is doing.  I bought three cars from him, and he sold three for me, during my time there.  The saddest was when I sold my beloved first Shelby, '68 GT350 #2682, to a guy in Dickinson.  The next year, Hurricane Ike came through and flooded the guys garage above the roof for several days, car was a total loss, probably crushed soon after that.

I don't know why you would have to crush an old car, I would think all you would have to do is tear it all apart and start over.

I'm not certain that happened, all I know is the owner said it was totaled by the insurance company and hauled to a junk yard that specializes in crushing cars.  It could be they stripped off the tags and some other parts, and put them on a re-body, as so often happens.

Wow, big warning to anyone looking at '68 GT350 #2682.  I can see the eBay ad now, "great car, had a slight leaking issue but was fixed."

Brian,

   Just as an FYI, there are plenty of stories similar to that of 2682, if fact, some are well documented in articles in magazines like Mustang Monthly, one such car would be a red 70 (mustang) convertible that my memory is zeroing in on......It happens, and thankfully we have club members across the country who are/were willing to lend a hand when such an occurrence happens.  Chug a Lug
