They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but apparently snakes do. About a month ago, I came across a fantastic 1969 Shelby GT350 fastback in Grabber Blue. That machine is a pretty rare and special car. The Shelby American Automobile Club says that in total, 673 Shelby GT350 fastbacks were made in 1969. Only 139 GT350 convertibles were made in the same year, making them very rare and very special. This is one of those 139 cars.
To put that in perspective, my odds of seeing a Ferrari F40 when I came around the corner were roughly 10 times better than my odds of seeing this. Unlike the blue machine, which looked like it might’ve been all-original, this scarlet & cream dream looks like it’s been beautifully restored. The owner couldn’t have picked a more perfect day to bring the car out, and he wasn’t the only one enjoying the weather.
I absolutely love how this Cayman GTS was spec’d out.
And finally, this neat old Jeep CJ that’s been converted into a pickup truck.
