    I keep getting invited to Shelby track day at Willow Springs. Haven't gone yet, highly doubtful I will. But lots of classic Shelbys.

    Currently watching for either a 67 coupe or a 70. 67 would get modified to Trans Am clone, at least street legal!

    That one was destroyed by a Hyundai doing 60mph T-boning me in '94.
    If I ever get a clean $100,000 get a Dynacorn body, and do the old Boss 302 Chassis Modification Guide like the repo guides in NPD and duplicate it (the GT, I've had others) and try to get the replacement VIN to start as 1969R02M1xxxxx

    Nice, didn't know about this. Yep know about the boss 302 tricks. Les Baer is fanatical about Boss cars.

    Question is, why no fenders?

    My conjecture of that choice by Dynacorn, would be that it is easier to install/adjust a fender by an amateur/home restorer. On the other hand, leaving the doors off where there are more straight line gaps (bottom edge and rear quarter-panel that is solid in place) and then adding the weight of window glass and roller mech, would be a lot harder without a jig and tooling to hold the door in place, like they have at Dynacorn.
    The door gaps are the ones you see as you walk up to the car. All the others, you see after you have already gotten your first impression :artist:

    I’m so glad I don’t live in there. @Redbluedog, you need to get the hell out and soon.

    This was the 60s. Before the Tate-LaBianca murders. That started serious changes in SoCal.
