Sep 11, 2013 update to the Shelby GT 350 project car

Comparing Shelbys, Eh?

We wonder which would be more fun: a ’65 or a ’67 Shelby? No bad choices here.
Crossing from Washington into British Columbia, Canada, but we didn’t feel any chills.
Our trip would not have been as complete had we not stopped for fresh fruit along the way.

We’re halfway through the rally and staying in West Kelowna, British Columbia, which is a long way from our home base in Florida.

Our Shelby continues to run great with no further issues. We even got caught in traffic in 90-degree heat for nearly an hour as we waited to cross into Canada. Our car got a little warm, but we had no overheating issues.

We did get a rare treat, as fellow Shelby driver, Brad Tank, let us trade cars with him for an hour. It was a lot of fun comparing our ’67 Shelby with his pristine ’65 model.

We both came away with some impressions: He liked our big engine and power brakes, and we loved the raw feel of his earlier car. Neither of us liked the ear-splitting side exhaust of the ’65, though. That said, in short bursts, there’s hardly a better sound than a HiPo 289 at 6000 rpm.
