So, I got a call today...

I know, I know... I just purchased a 68 Shelby from this man... he bought a race car because he wanted to drive at the local track here in VA. He took it out a few times Andy realized a 750hp flat out race car is a little more than he bargained for. He's pushing 70 and he wasn't familiar with what a real race car was like on the track. Anyway, he wants to sell it and he asked my to put my feelers out. He paid $125k for the basic car and added all the options. He would like to get $68k for the car...if anyone knows anyone he's motivated to move it. Let me know by pm...
HERE IS THE INFO...pics will follow...

I think if I showed up at a local autocross with that wing on the back the ricers would faint or be weak in the knees at a minimum!

Your right, what is this thing for?

It's basically a NASCAR type build with a generic body and "mustang" nose and rear bumper cover.
I bet it's fast....

I've never seen one of those before. Don't think the learning curve would be all that bad though.
I have been passed by a Shelby Can Am before..... actually two of them, one on either
side of my car, coming down off the Budweiser Balcony turn at Willow Springs. That was pretty
intense.
