Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Kerry -- Thanks for the response in our discussion of these issues. First, I was not attempting (until today) to determine the accuracy of the assumption that the dash tag was riveted from the factory. As far as I was concerned the fact that it was required by law was definitive. So much so, that if...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Kerry -- Hold the phone here coach -- this car has not had "a flag" in the Registry or the Master Record since Rob and Bart photographed the sheet metal date codes and the apron vin numbers etc. to remove the open questions concerning the car. Next you indicate that you are "not popular with you", m...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

cobrasc427 -- Well you are certainly correct I don't everything about the cars, that's for sure. Wish I did. One of the things I don't know is the current email address for every owner of record. I can poll those that I do know the address for, if I don't have a picture of the rear of their car whic...
