    Thanks for all the kind words. In 1976 when my friend gave me a ride in his 65 Shelby i said i am going to buy one. In September of 1987 I bought my 65.
    I had to keep looking in the garage the first few days to look and see i was not dreaming.

    Super car Mike! I bought my 66 GT350 in June of 1987, hard to believe it's now been more than 20 years. Let me know if you ever want to trade. ;)
