These were the years (67-72) where American Muscle cars reigned supreme.

I was only a sophomore in High School (68), but that period left in an endelible mark in my goals.

A friend of the family had a '67 Shelby GT500 Mustang (with a "Select-Shift" automatic)... I was "love" at first sight!

Fast forward 40 years, I'm Blessed to be an owner of my own '07 Shelby GT500.

It took awhile, but that's one this a BIG one to check-off the Bucket List! :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet:

This bring back memory's, Oct 68 In the Phila. area I bought a 63 Stingray conv. 2 top, 360 hp, Sebring Silver, with 43k miles for $1,700. Sold it in 1975 for 4k, had about 5k of upgrades into it. Sold it because I got tired of putting in parts, (4) transmissions , (3)rear end posi units and(8) half shafts. The more power you put into those cars back then, the more they broke. I never want to go back to those days, cars today are built better and faster.
