Some recent spies.  That white wagon had a GTO front clip.  Not sure if that was factory or not, but looked pretty sweet.

Posting for the kid I work with, as I know some of them there HillyBillys like the V8 Rangers.

Anywho, here's a link to the craigslist ad:  88 ford ranger sleeper. trade?? - $2950

It was built in the late 90's (97-ish) at a place in Iowa.  Has a whole binder of receipts and manuals to do with the motor build and the truck in general.  Receipt shows over $9500 into the engine and install work.  Also has some wicked grandpa style graphics on the thing.  Minus the wheels, it'd be a sweet sleeper.  Thing scoots pretty good, too.  Anywho, check the ad if interested.

Too bad you can't put your own logo on the logo one.  Would be rad to have Hayseed on there.

Wonder if they'd put Quamba Mafia on a small one...

Sweet "barn find" '67 Shelby GT500.

What really caught my attention was the price, written with a finger in the dust on the windshield: $7,500, then crossed out and marked down to $6,000. The wooden steering wheel inside the ’67 Shelby was probably worth that much.

The price in dust, however, was a joke to attract attention. I saw the fastback in the vendor area at the Mustang 50th anniversary show in Las Vegas. Later, somebody at the 50th put a “10” in front of the $6,000 so the price read $106,000.

Paul Kerner, who works for Scott Drake Enterprises, owned the muscle Mustang. He bought the car, as seen here in 1997, when he lived in California.

“A coworker found the car. He said it was coming out the next day in the local Recycler, so if I wanted the car, I had to buy it now.”

Paul gave his friend a $1,000 finder’s fee to purchase the ’67 for a bargain price: $14,000.

A friend was selling it for the original owners, a Los Angeles school teacher and his wife. The Shelby was her daily driver. She had parked it in 1981.

Paul appreciated the G.T. 500—Dark Moss Green, very original (but repainted once), 124,000 miles, automatic, a driver that started being less reliable and not very economical and thus parked. He believes that in 1997 he could have made one phone call and more than doubled his money. However, he wanted to keep the Shelby to eventually restore.

The ’67 had been sitting since 1981 in Camarillo, California, which explains the almost rust-free body—just a few bubbles in one door. Funny thing is today the car still sits. Paul doesn’t recall if he even washed the car. It remains as he bought it 17 years ago. He said, “I wasn’t trying to preserve a barn find. I just stuck it in a corner of a garage and never got around to it.”

Two of the original Shelby 10-spoke wheels were not on the car, “so I threw them in the back corner of my property and buried them with my junk tires and wheels so nobody would junk them for scrap aluminum,” said Paul.

I wondered why he didn’t just put them up in his garage. Paul said he didn’t intend to leave the wheels there for long. “I had my garage stuffed full of other valuable items that could not see weather,” he said.

In 2003, Paul got a call from an agent for Kylie Minogue, the famous Australian pop singer. She wanted to purchase the ’67 for her father as a project. Paul said, “They offered $100,000, and I said 110.”

They would not give that much money, and Minogue found another deal. Word spread, and a “regular Joe” said he would pay Paul $110,000 for the car. Paul said, “Back then, I could restore the car fairly reasonably. A fully restored ’67 Shelby G.T. 500 fastback would bring 250K, and I didn’t need the money.” (Paul’s wife was upset he did not take the offer.)

Paul left the car in a garage on his rental property in California when he moved with Scott Drake to Las Vegas. He transported it to the 50th Mustang anniversary celebration at Las Vegas in April. The car ended up being one of the most popular in the entire show. The car needs a total restoration, but Paul could not believe the number of people who took pictures of his barn find, ourselves included.

Paul has no immediate plans to restore—or even wash—the dual-quad 428-powered G.T. 500. “It can just sit there and do the same things it’s been doing.”

Yeah, except the dealerships were marking them up 50% over MSRP because of demand.  Apparently it is, Mopar or NO car...

Dodge SRT Hellcat Orders Suspended to Catch Up With Demand

With demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat exceeding the automaker’s expectations, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is suspending orders for the 707-hp muscle cars until the company can catch up on existing orders, Automotive News reports.

FCA initially expected to sell around 5000 SRT Hellcat models per year. So far, the company has received orders for more than 9000 cars. The order suspension is expected to lift in August, or possibly sooner if production increases or if current orders are cancelled, according to

“Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system,” a company spokesperson told Motor Trend in an email.

So far, more than 2200 Dodge SRT Hellcat models have been delivered since orders opened in September. Like other special-edition cars, many of the SRT Hellcat models have sold well above MSRP. A few Dodge dealers were criticized by Gualberto Ranieri, of FCA, for taking orders that may go unfilled. Some dealers have even charged nonrefundable deposits as high as $5000.
