    IIRC the part-out thread was posted before this one, so I don’t see why there would be any hard feelings

    Humor. Sometimes it does not parlay into typed lines.

    I never made a part out thread yet. Lol but no, no hard feelings anywhere!

    Well I thought it was kinda funny. Lol

    No body panels to sell. Have a drivers side headlight, gauge cluster, nav/dash harness. Will make a parts thread of what’s left when I get a chance.

    SUPER late to the thread man, so sorry to hear about your ride! :( Im glad to hear youre ok. These cars are incredibly well engineered for safety. I hear all the time people romance the 60's and 70's muscle cars. I owned one for a brief time too. No way would I ever race one, not even close to being as safe as modern cars are.

    Ive been in your shoes before, it sucks terribly. But it seems like youre a resilient guy. Get back in the saddle when you can and let her rip! Some advice though: the first pass or two back to a track, take the passes easy. Just drive through nice and easy. Get those butterflies out, then start adding some speed to your passes. Youll be flat out again in no time.

    Hey thanks man. Yes these cars are definitely well engineered and was glad to have that airbag in my seat. Yes I will definitely be back in the saddle, keeping an eye out for a fully built Shelby for a reasonable price to pop up this time. I did pretty good parting it out but obviously still at a loss so buying one already built will help me get more even.

    Thanks, but honestly man there are no butterflies. There was never any fear or trauma from this both at the time or now. Was just pure anger that it happened.

    Have you considered a GT350 with a Whipple?

    Haha nah, but my second choice is a fully built turbo 18 s550 auto. Rather another built gt500 though.

    DAMN!!!! Well you have a great attitude about that whole situation. I would probably be a lot more butt hurt. YYes today’s newer cars have a lot more safety involved but given the chance I would still probably race a 65 GT 350 on a road course or a 65 Shelby cobra with a 427 anywhere I could. Best of luck on your next project!

    Oh I was butt hurt, this car was my baby and I put so much thought, effort and money into it. But what can you do, that’s racing and shite happens. Just build faster and sexier next time.... The world has enough whiners in it already and I choose not to be one of them. ;)

    Yup, I had to cut my axle tube horizontally along the length of tube with a grinder. 3 disks later I got it out. Lol

    Don't throw that axle away, it would make a great garage wall art conversation piece!

    Edit: Also it looks like the pinion gear in the back right of the pic has some good chunks taken out of a couple teeth.

    Oh ya I’m putting it on the wall to go with the rear bumper. No the ring and pinion are perfect and I’m having the truetrac inspected to see if it’s perfect or not.
