The latest in the most innovative aerodynamic spoiler system since the Apollo Space program. The spoiler kit will improve handling and down force like nothing on the market today. Made of hi-tech graphite components and developed especially to fit many makes and models... actually we only made one prototype but it will be going to production soon... we think! With a drill and some screws we're certain it will fit on most cool cars. Easy installation instructions and a bag of screws will be included. You will be the talk of the race track or the Friday night cruise-in. This is a fictional story… but you just never know!

Artist Quote: This work begins as 3D drawings on a computer. I utilize a large format printer to translate the digital into the real world as a flat inkjet print. I then cut, fold and glue these numbered and labeled shapes together much like a complicated three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle.

When production started on the Starsky & Hutch TV pilot episode, Ford Motor Company's Studio-TV Car Loan Program was the lease supplier for Spelling-Goldberg. They looked at lease stock and chose two 1975 351 Windsor V8-powered VIN code H "Bright Red" (paint code 2B) 2-door Gran Torinos. Both cars had a 'role' in the pilot movie. They each had body-side moldings along with a black interior with vinyl bench seats. Interestingly, one of the 'pilot' cars had the 'luxury' remote-control chrome mirrors installed, while the other 'pilot' car had the cheaper, entry-level manual chrome mirrors installed. The cars were also custom painted with the distinctive white vector stripe designed by Spelling-Goldberg's transportation coordinator George Grenier. The rear ends were lifted by air shocks, and had U.S. brand 5-slot mag wheels added with larger rear tires.

Just another day browsing the classifieds… eager to find the car of his dreams, Edwin gets a lead on a very clean 1967 Mustang.  When he arrives at the address he was given, he says to himself  "I wonder why that sign says salvage yard".  Oh well, the guy on the phone said the car was clean.  As Edwin pulls up along side a small shack he sees the car of his dreams.  The only problem is that the car doesn't look quite right.  The Mustang owner walks out of a small door in the side of the shack and says "hey" as he spits through his death.  "That there is the rarest Mustang they ever made" he says.  "They only made a handful of them."  Edwin, keen to listen to the fascinating tale, finally asks "why does look like that"  The old man reply's "that's how they shipped them from the factory… they came in two pieces."  This is a fictional story… but you just never know.

Did Carroll Shelby buy the Cobra name and logo from Crosley for $1? Indeed, Carroll Shelby began his racing career in an MG-based special in 1952, right about the same time Crosley was throwing in the towel on the car business. Crosley-engined specials, however, remained in competition for several years afterward, so it’s possible that Shelby would have gridded alongside those cars early on in his career. On the other hand, those Crosley-engined specials would most likely have not run the CoBra engine.

Shelby De Mexico was originally introduced in 1967 after a partnership was struck with Carroll Shelby. In 1969, 306 Shelby's that were produced were based on 302hp powered Mustang hardtops. The cars had fiberglass roofline extensions that created a fastback look. Their front sheet metal was near-stock Mustang, but the slightly bulged hoods were fiberglass, their deck lids had spoilers and the taillights were from the 1965 Thunderbird. Several of the 1969 Shelby de Mexico GT-350s have become very collectible.
