Thanks a lot, Michael, for putting me in a frump!
Sorry Mike. Certainly wasn't my intention. Maybe it was the sun's angle on the car or what appears to be a slightly off shade of white on that scoop. The scoop just stood out, and my eyes quickly imagined it not there. I'm sure the side scoops look great on your car!

The black California Special convertible is our pastor’s car. He loved our GT500. A great mix of car brands and types. Too many Vettes and Camaros though!

Car show and drag racing all in one!
A few pics from the show area:

This Torino Cobra belongs to a buddy of mine. He runs 12.50’s on those skinny Firestone bias ply tires.

One observation from this past Saturday: WAY too many Corvettes and Camaros in attendance. Of the 200+ entries at the COR car show, there was only a single GT500 of any vintage... ours. Only one other Shelby Mustang at all, a '67 GT350 convertible, signed on the dash by Carroll Shelby. What gives? Why so many Camaros? Why so many Vettes?

I've noticed the same. I went to C&C last month and I was the only GT500 and 1 of 3 Shelby's. Maybe only 15-20 Mustangs total out of well over 250 cars. I went last weekend and there were the same amount of Mustangs total, but there were about 6 GT500s. 3 '14s, 2 '68s, and 1 '20 CFTP. The amount of Camaros/Vettes/Challengers was crazy. My guess, from when I was shopping for tbe Shelby, theyer generally cheaper to buy and still make alot of power. None of those cars hold their value like a Shelby does

Took the CFTP to a show this morning. It’s a lovely sunny day in Texas!

The worst part about carbon fiber wheels: I’ve had to “politely” ask grown men to not touch/rub my wheels at more than one car show. They usually come up to the car, spot the wheels, bend down and aggressively rub them to see if they are real or wrapped.

Looks like a nice turn-out. Glad to see you could get out for the morning.

I was at a C&C in San Clemente, CA and there was a group of young 20's fellas doing pretty much the same thing. I was parked next to a demon and they were putting their fist in its intake and then they came out to my car and stared touching things in the engine bay. I was very not happy about it, but my wife quickly swooped in and told them its not their car, they shouldn't be touching things that don't belong to them much less things they probably cannot afford to replace. I dont know what happened to "keep your hands to yourself."

Side note... they walked away talking about how both cars were fake and up-badged. I just shook my head.

Car shows/events are "enter at your own risk"......
