"This car is Rust-Free, and Origonal. Shock Tower Holes? No, those holes are there to help cool the brakes off. Shelby only Modification."

This precision work was measured with a micrometer, marked with chalk and cut with an axe. Notice the benefit of extra engine cooling via the flow through these fine mud puddle ports. Cad drawings for this mod are available on request.

"Look, just cut holes in the shock towers to grease the uppers. It's not like these cars are ever going to be collectable anyway. Sheesh, they made millions of them. Now, take our 1978 King Cobra. That is a collectable."

I'm telling you, it will fit!!! All we need is a little heat, push the part back where it hits, lower the motor, a little more maybe and there ya go!

After he had removed the engine and cut away the shock tower to hopefully expose the "hidden bolts" that held the wheels on, Billy Bob's SWMBO pointed out that the hubcaps could be removed, exposing the "hidden" lug nuts... ::

Billy Bob received the VMF Doofus Award. :D
