Still an amazing quote, one that stuck with me (which is how I remembered it).

Thanks again.

Skunk, did you inform that owner his car isn't a Shelby? If so, I'm curious to know what his reaction was. Did he thank you for revealing the truth about what he honestly believed was a Shelby? Did he not believe you and insist his car is a Shelby? Or did he just get angry and tell you go to someplace hot and miserable?

I overheard a quote at a vintage race awhile ago that sort of pertains to this conversation, one guy was asking the owner of a vintage Cobra if he worried about wrecking his valuable car while racing it in the races, and the owner replied "You can't total a car like this, it will always be worth more than what it cost to repair it" I suppose he is right.

Klutch: His comment was; That is wnat I want for it. No comment either way. I think he was suprised that someone actually checked the numbers. Now that he knows it can be traced I am not sure how he will present it.

Did he give you the Shelby serial # by any chance, assuming that there was a Shelby tag on the fenderwell? It'd be interesting to see what it was being passed off as.

Coming from the "next boyfriend" point of view.....I appreciate those that don't drive their cars (or women)!

Thanks. So, he was likely thinking, "OK, you found me out. But I still expect to get a Shelby price for a non-Shelby!".

it's a myth that driving a vintage car diminishes it's value.

Not maintaining a car, whether driven or not, is what ruins a car. If a vintage car is devalued because of use it was because the owner was just too lazy to maintain it.

i know a guy that said his 70 b2 was free , didnt cost him a penny. he said its a car that you can drive for free. he put a lot of miles on it. when he sold it he said he got all his money back and a whole lot more. that was about 10 years ago. he took care of it like you would any car you own.
