New Arrival - 1970 Mustang Fastback.

My Grabber Red 70 Mustang Fastback arrived today - looks in great shape.
Destined to end up as the proto-type for our right hand drive conversions for 69/70 Mustangs and as a Boss clone (already has Boss front and rear spoilers- graphics to follow)

Re: importing of spares and cars

Another favourite local ploy is to advertise, for example, a Mustang for sale but using a photograph taken from the internet posing as the car for sale.
Regularly seen on Autotrader and Junk Mail.

Re: Genuine GT 350 in Cape Town

A Shelby Plate ( which can be bought blank from a number of vendors in the USA) does not make a genuine GT350 just as a Capri with a "reproduction" BG plate does not make a genuine Perana.
May explain the conversion and why the plate looks so shiny and new.

Re: Intro - Craig - DiamondBack Racing

Hi Mark, Interesting post - Flaming River have made me up a prototype rhd version of their Vette rack and pinion conversion with the cross member.
