Earlier this month the Classic Recreations team ventured to the 2010 SEMA show in Las Vegas to make good on an announcement owner Jason Engel made a year before at the same event. In 2009 Jason announced plans to work with Shelby American on the first series of officially licensed 1967 Shelby Mustang continuation cars. This year however both Ford Motor Company and Cobra Electronics invited Classic Recreations to display cars in their respective booths. The car from the Ford display was also called out as an “Ultimate Street Car” when Optima batteries asked Engel to participate in the annual Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational (OUSCI) track shootout and television show at Spring Mountain Raceway in Pahrump, Nevada, the Saturday after SEMA.
Off the back huge success of the Dyancorn 1967 bodies it was only a matter of time before the company know for it’s licensed reproduction bodies offered a 1965-66 version. It makes sense.
Late last month good friend Adam, who you may remember from my previous post, attended the annual Mustang owners of Australia Victorian show at the Dandenong Show Grounds. Also known as the Melbourne Mustang Show.
It seems golfer Aaron Baddeley is a Mustang fan and he now has his own custom restomod, complete with his nickname in the paint to prove it.
Aaron’s dad Ron Baddeley project managed the resto with help from the team at Slamed Creations, taking inspiration from the movie, Gone in Sixty Seconds, to build a one-of-a-kind Mustang.
Well these kinds of stories never cease to amaze me. Restorers getting in over their heads and taking orders they cannot deliver on. This is alleged to be the case with Fayetteville car restoration company, Classic Chassis.
So I’ve not caught any of the Twilight, Vampire, True Blood or whatever those movies are but I’ve seen all the coverage they have been getting. Not my type of thing, though it has made this site for one reason only. Twilight star Cam Gigandet seems to have himself and Eleanor restomod
So since my post about the movie correct French steering wheel availability it seems Eleanor enthusiasts have bombarded my friend Dom proving there are many of you out there that are after one of these hard to find steering wheels. Well for those still deciding or considering one here is a small update from Dom, hit the jump for pictures of this beautiful wheel.
