  1. That's it exactly Newstang!!!!!! We do have the same taste. Ridgerunner, looking forward to seeing your progress, I always assumed one day I would have to try to make a fiberglass one. If you decide to go into production or at least make more than one let me know, I'll be the first customer in line! :) I already cobbled up a custom ram air for mine and opened up the stock hood but this would be way cooler!
  2. Now that the '69 stang email is up and running again I received yet another bitcoin sexploitation scam email only this one was a little different and had my user name and almost exact password in the subject field. After some of the generic threats he also complimented me on my car so it's doubtful it came from any place but here. I would encourage you all to consider changing your passwords and to not use something that you have used on personal accounts, particularly financial.
  3. Nope, that's a Shelby deMexico hood. I'm talking about the '71-'73 scoops. Can you elaborate? I did a really nice photo chop on here of what I'm talking about years ago but once I found the thread seems all the older pics uploaded to posts are now long gone. :(
  4. Email should be up and running again for anyone who missed the other thread. BTW, if you see a sock on my door knob don't knock, it means I'm busy using the other sock. :P
  5. I agree too, one of the things that drew me to the '69 stang was that it was the closest looking stock mustang to the '67 Shelby I used to love as a kid. And now that my car has a custom Shelby trunk lid and end caps that retain the stock tail panel and lights I think it's just about spot on. Now if only I could get someone to make a '69 hood with '71 - '73 style Ram Air scoops I'd be in Mustang heaven.
  6. LOL, only problem is I don't masturbate.......................while on the computer, tablet is much easier to close in a hurry. So anyway, back on topic, I managed to get a hold of Ben, he is going to look into it ASAP.

  8. I sent an email to a hotmail account I found for Ben since I'm sure his stang account would be down too, hopefully it's still active, we'll see. I have no doubt the server has been hacked, I'm still not getting new emails in my inbox but my spam box has been getting new sextortion scam emails that looks like it comes from me too me asking for bitcoins or they'll send webcam videos of me masturbating to porn to everyone in my contacts list.
  9. Good to be back, just wish it wasn't for this issue. :(
  10. I have that size on the front of my '69 vert with 17X8 and 4.5 BS and 275/40-17 out back with 5.5 BS on 17X9's.
  11. Don't know if this will help others but I tried some things and even though yes the most recent gallery was disabled I found a back door into the original albums page, you have to find your album and then click through each individual pic links one by one to be able to copy and save but it's better than nothing. Obviously this won't include anything that was updated to the gallery after the albums closed but it's an option. http://1969stang.com/albums/
  12. OK thanks, I'll try to reach out to Ben directly and see what I can find out.
  13. I had the same issue recently, can send but not receive but it only started happening around 9/1. I'm looking into it.
  14. For some reason my 69stang.com email address has only been able to send emails but not receive for over a week now and I am only using about 20% of my capacity. Anyone else experiencing this?
  15. Crap, guess I've been away for far too long, can we still retrieve the images? This site was the only place I had them stored! :(
  16. Spring is finally in the air for most of us too, should bring people back from the long winter sleep many of us endure.
  17. Good God it's great to be back in this country (kissing the soil) Mwah mwah mwah. I'll still be getting back into the groove for the next few days and trying to catch up on everything I have missed over the last year or so but should be back to my regular daily log in routine soon. Some of you guys may not have even known I was gone but I sure did miss all of ya and this place not to mention my car!
  18. I think I just figured out how to bring back pictures missing from old threads, I am going to try it here as a test with my favorite photoshop hood.
  19. Here's a nice video of a walk around of one at a car show. Looks like the rear of the front scoops are open for heat extraction, just not at the front. I was also surprised to see the cougar door panels in there, didn't expect that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-20veIQZvb8 We have had several conversations on these almost lost Shelby's over the past decades, I always thought the rear window sail panels were a great idea for someone to re-pop, way cheaper conversion for coupe owners who wish they had the look of the sportsroof. I also always thought that making a bulging fiberglass rear quarter skin you could graft on that looks like the sportsroof scoops would be a popular item as well. The only thing I always hated about these cars was that they just left the indent there for the scoop, looks so unfinished. @shaun, that tail is much lower than the Shelby vert one, I have it on my car and after seeing this I can say for sure it is different. As I recall part of the agreement with this back in the day was that only a certain percentage of the car could be made from American parts, the rest had to be produced locally thus many of the unique parts like the sail panels and trunk lid/extensions. Also why they left the side scoop off I believe. Mexican 302's were already being made, many sent to San Jose like the one in my car.
  20. Cool project, I will follow along with interest. I always wanted to make a '69 hood that had the '71-'73 type nostrils on it! Maybe after I see what is involved with yours I'll give it a try someday.
  21. I thought when I tried some out of the box photchops for hoods a while back that I did a 68'ish one, I'll have to see if I can dig that up. As for making your own, IMHO I'm not sure I would start with metal. I think I would start with foam board and clay, sculpt it to exact detail then make a negative fiberglass cast of it.
  22. Yeah, especially a '70 vert! Not a lot of those around still. How was the body? Give us some history on the car and definitely add her to our VIN registry if you haven't already.
  23. I get the overall decline, I don't personally facebook or tweet or any of that stuff but I can see how it hurts forums some. Usually Winter is the peak time though and we see a drop in Spring/Summer when folks are using their cars unless it's a cry for help on something that suddenly went wrong.
