Not my cup of tea, but interesting.

I'm personally a big fan of the Grabber Green with white Le Mans stripes I saw on some 65-66 Shelbys/clones although I haven't been able to find any good high resolution pictures of any or saw any in person so I could take some pictures for myself.

Nice car though.

This is a perfect example of why Baskin- Robbins has 31 flavors, all though for me its not. It does not have to be and for who do enjoy.

BF Goodrich painted a 65(?) R-Model this color for a photo shoot. I wonder if the image is still on their website-- used to be available in poster form from them.

I like it. one of the mustang vendors i see at a lot of the shows (the old man drives a black 65/66 mustang fastback with red interior, great looking car) and his neice did a mustang fastback in the same color with black stripes. Looked awesome, i would actually paint one fo my cars that color bc it looks great! I'm a teenager though and of course to each their own

I still have that poster, It's hanging above or bed! We plant to buy a house soon, but I doubt if my girlfriend allows me to hang it in the bedroom again :)

A while ago, I read a comment from a friend of the Shelby owner. BF Goodrich (or the ad agency probably) assured him that they used a paint that could simply be washed off with water. Well, not really. The guy had to repaint the car.

Regarding the 67 Shelby, I kinda like it, although I think it would look better on a Boss 302.
