This is my downfall:(. Only 500 were made of these in the first year. The 1965 Mustang
GT350 as modified by the shop run by "Ol Shel hisself. It ran a solid lifter, weber carbed option, side exhausted, stiff low geared rear, 289" motor that gave a bit over 300 hp.:). Could have bought her for $3K in 1971 but didn't:(. Wayy wayy out of my price range now but it doesn't matter - no room's left.

1965 Mustang GT350

They went a little soft with um in 1966 (photo) and built 2 or 3x the original 500 production amount. I think they softened the suspension a bit, exhaust went out the rear and they had the (phony?) rear brake ducts on the side. After '66, it became a tape car with a different body style.



I still think they are wayy cool cars - especially when you hear 'em run with the solid lifters:).

Here's a '65.


I'll take the '65 being the purist I am - cleaner looking, more exclusive and built to run.

Cory Youngberg's Flaminia Coupe. Drove it Sunday, procrastinated my decision, was gone Monday - But went to a fellow Alfa BB member.

That thing drove so nice and smooth and got me addicted to the great Lancias.

Its been over ten years ago, but I'm STILL kicking myself for not buying this 1955 Parilla! Built originally as a 175cc "SS" racing motorcycle, it was campaigned throughout Europe & came 4th. in its class at the Isle of Man in 1956! This picture is after its 3rd(& final) restoration in 1991, the owner bored the 175cc to 250cc--this is what deterred me from buying it--everything else is original, although some original pieces were chromed. The Parilla handled beautifully & was exceptionally fast for its age & engine size. I've never ridden another 250cc that was even close! This picture's angle doesn't show the motorcycle at its best:

OUCH! I just kicked myself again!

Regards
