The August 2018 Ride of the Month is Ted Taylor's (68gurney) 429 powered '70 Standard

Go Big or Go Home, There is no replacement for displacement! 800|534|2018|3729.jpg What's it got in it? The Fifties were indeed fabulous; Longer! Lower! Wider! Faster! and, as it turns out, a lot heavier to boot. The new Interstate Highway system beckoned and in the mid 50's it seemed anything was ...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Robert thank you for going to the extra effort to document this! The value of what you are doing goes beyond this car to give us a good bench mark for just how to document one of these cars. Great job!

It could be. Any chance that you would be interested in investing in it? I own Desert Classic Parts and do many of the Cougar parts that are currently being reproduced.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I think a lot of the confusion about the car you are working on came about because previous owners were reluctant to let the car be inspected. How about this; would you mind starting...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

This is very exciting news! It sure looks like another GT-E has survived. Many owners ago I asked if it might be possible to take one of the rear tail light bars off and look for any kind of Ford prototype markings on the back.
