The color is the same as the Phil Gallant owned 'Dan Gurney 69 Shelby Team car' and the color is called 'corporate blue'. Here is a link... http://www.trans-amseries.com/Drivers/PhilGallant.htm

The cam is quite street-able with just the right amount of nastiness when you get into it. Thanks for the 'sick' compliment.

Anyway, your car is so spectacular you should definitely have it in that show. People would go nuts over all the details. I know I'd spend a while crawling all over your car. ...with cotton gloves of course.

That's too bad. I would have loved to see your car. There really aren't too many cars like ours at the show. We'll see what happens this year. I'll make sure I either take a lot of pictures or video and I can put them on youtube. Speaking of which, I think you'll need to do that soon so we can hear that beast!! Take care.

Yeah... I'd love to see some video. I've watched those vids of Knotts and all the Bosses about a zillion times. I have got to figure out how best to do some in-car video like you've done. My camcorder is a bit old.

I'll say!
I've always liked the look. I installed headlights just so I could do this.

First took this to the track, now it's retired and will be street-only again:



Then built this for the track:



And then this happened:



Good thing I wasn't driving the fastback....

It's almost repaired, with bigger brakes and a fresh coat of paint, to get back on the track this summer...

don't mean to thread jack but what is the point of taping the headlight on track cars. I have always wondered its not just vintage vehicles either I see it on track bikes and latemodels too.

It's just to keep the track clean of debris caused by crashes large and small. Same reason for catch-cans for oil and radiator fluid. ...and i think someone mentioned it before, it looks cool.

Sometimes you'll see headlight blanks put in. I have a set of spun metal Moon disks that fit perfectly. You won't see it much in drag racing and not at all in NASCAR because those headlights are just decals.

Thanks, but I can not really take credit for installing them. My crew slapped them on the car because I always pack a weapon.

Here is one of my teammates smoking the tires going into the "safety pin" at Sebring (a guy has to move forward when a Camaro is in the way).
