Happy Holidays from Virginia Classic Mustang!



I love this, so I've been posting it for the past several years.  I found it somewhere on the Internet and tweaked it a bit. I don't know the author (sorry), but it is pretty cool!

Happy Holidays from Virginia Classic Mustang!



'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage,


There wasn't a trace of a Chevy or a Dodge.

The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,

So I figured I'd mess with the ‘Stang for a bit.

I popped out the hood pins and I lifted the hood,

When a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good."

Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,

And there, by the workbench, stood good ol’ Saint Nick!

We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say,

Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?

I said "no way, Santa" and started to grin,

"But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!"

His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,

Turned into a smile and he said "hey! Let's go!!"

So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat,

We pushed the Mustang quietly into the street,

Then, taking our places to drift down the hill,

I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill.

The sound that erupted took him by surprise,

But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.

With Goodyears a' crying and side pipes aglow,

We headed on out where the hot rodders go.

And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,

With every up shift, as I went through the gears.

Then he yelled "can't recall when I've felt so alive!",

So I backed off the gas and said "you wanna drive?"



Ol’ Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,

When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!

Then the HiPo exploded with side exhaust sound!

Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground!


Power shift into second, again into third!

I sat there just watching, at loss for a word,

Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight,




"Merry Christmas to all...........what a great night!!!"

Just the Details...1966 GT350 Shelby Carryover Update


1966 Shelby GT350 Restoration.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

In our last update of the painting of '66 Shelby 6S033, we posted pictures of the painting of the engine compartment and underside of the car.  If you missed the last update, please click here to check out those pictures.

The next step in the process was to paint the interior floors and the trunk area.  First sealer was applied to the areas where it was originally found.  Again, the patterns of application were duplicated from what was found on this particular car before it was stripped and from other cars that were built at the same time.  The darker red primer color on the interior was duplicated and white over spray was applied just like original.  Check out the pictures here to see the process and results.

Just the Details...1966 GT350 Shelby Carryover Update

1966 Shelby GT350 Carryover Restoration. SFM6S033
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com


We have another update on the restoration of early '66 Shelby 6S033.  If you missed the last update, please click here to check it out.  Just to recap, this is one of the Carryover GT350s.  If you are unfamiliar with those, you may want to check out the web site, www.CarryoverGT350.com.

All of the work is being performed by Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration.  In today's post, we will look at the painting of the underside of the car.  Honestly, the pictures here just do not do it proper justice.  Colors were matched perfectly and over spray patterns were duplicated exactly.  It turned out beautifully and is another step in having the entire car completely painted so assembly can begin.

We were fortunate to not only have the original finishes on 6S033, but to also compare these finishes with some cars built very, very close to the same date.  In this particular "painting session" the proper sealers were applied.  The drips on the floor plans had been duplicated earlier.  On this particular car, the primer/sealer color on the underside floor pans is lighter than the color used under the front frame rails.  After applying these colors along with the engine compartment black, the proper white over spray was applied.  Then the black out over spray that resulted from the factory procedure of blacking out the rocker pinch weld moldings was duplicated. There is just so much more to explain about the entire process here, but I'll just let the pictures show it. Click on any of the pictures to see larger sizes.
