  1. I never recall a vinyl roof on any sprint car or their advertising back in the day.
  2. Does anyone know what happened with this car?
  3. Thanks for sharing. Add me to the list of "love to have it". If it really is the original drive train, where will you find another. Never seen another scj hardtop survivor. Good thing it isn't red.
  4. Don't forget the price of the warehouse to put it all in.
  5. Would love to bring a car if travel restrictions are lifted, but it is a long way from Calgary, so will likely have to settle for an airline ticket.
  6. I have had a number of sets restored here: https://finishyourplates.com/ Excellent work. Sharper than new.
  7. Hello and welcome from Alberta. Great car. Thanks for sharing.
  8. Our convertibles definitely need to be given the respect of a lethal weapon. Heck all of our cars are not far off.
  9. Posted by a family friend. I do not have any other details on the car at this point, One family owned. Has been a summer driver for many years. Remember it is posted in Cdn. dollars, so looks to be priced pretty well. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/calgary/mustang-convertible/1524933272
  10. Very late into the game here. I do not post much, and don't like to be confrontational. Back in the day they were totally exciting. Why? The big three were the game in town for us under 25. We did not go to the BMW or Porsche dealership. I don't know if we even had one. The Japanese cars were not on the same par in quality at the time, and so if you were a car person, they were not on your "list". I was thrilled when I got my 71 Mustang. Would have got a 429 but could not afford it. Were they a great car by today's standards... no, but that was not the time. Enjoy today's cars today, and tomorrow tomorrow. I can only imagine what will be said about a 2020 Mustang in 40 years, if they care.
  11. Wonderfully optioned car. Thanks for sharing.
  12. Thanks Don and Steve. Both great suggestions. I have four dealers to re create and have only seen the one plate for Coletto. No template for the other three after years of searching. It made me appreciate the many many dealers that have come and gone over the years, especially in smaller communities. I may go with my own template for each, realizing there may be no "true" ones left out there.
  13. For several years I have been on the hunt for a dealer script or license plate frame for my boss 1, without success. Frank Coletto Ford, Harbour City CA. Missed one on eBay about 9 months ago. If anyone came across one would very much appreciate the lead. Thanks in advance.
  14. Totally agree. If these things are wrong, they will only be the start of a longer list. I would keep looking.
  15. Welcome from Calgary. This is the place to help you move it to the next level. Can you tell us more of its history with your dad?
  16. Welcome from a fellow Albertan. Good job in carrying on your fathers work.
  17. Welcome from your "neighbor" in Calgary. Great to hear you can carry on your fathers focus. I suspect he would be very glad. Post some pics when it is out and about.
  18. Now to get it out for the season
  19. So sorry to see this happen to you. As others have said however is most importantly you were not hurt. All the best in working through the evaluation and getting repairs in place.
