Super Mustang posted this cool video of a 1967 Shelby Mustang going for a drive around the block after 30 years. i'm sure they did some prep work to get it going. Very happy they shared the first drive after 30 years. My question is how do people find these amazing cars stuffed in a barn, especially a Shelby! I want in on this.
I live out in the country and am going to start looking in barns for some of these. So far all I have found is a cool 65 Valiant Station Wagon from Ca., and an 87 Cutlass from Virginia, Need to steop up my car hunting skills. Anyway enjoy the Shelby first ride. PS: Tell us or post your barn finds here. If you have video even better!

Within five years, his line was retailing at Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s, and his first freestanding Polo boutique opened on Beverly Hill’s ritzy Rodeo Drive in 1971. Before long he began collecting cars. Some of his earliest purchases were his 1971 Mercedes 280SE 4.5 convertible, a 1979 Porsche 930 and a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing coupe bought in 1983.

e of the things that used to make America so distinctive was its cars. If you lived there, you would really have to go abroad for a while and then come back to appreciate the difference. In most countries of the world, cars were modest things, little bean-shaped units designed to take two or three people from here to there. In America, cars were real estate. They were enormous boats in which you could eat, sleep, make love, change clothes, throw parties, maintain an office, practice unlicensed dentistry—or take your six best friends out for a spin. They were a testament to America’s unlimited natural resources: oil, steel, rubber, naugahyde, and, above all, space.

And that included New York City then, since most of its population took the subway.
