Hey, I saw a blue GT going East on 50 highway just off 291 around 4 in the afternoon on sunday. I just wondered if it was any of you guys. If so I would really like to look at your car, any in the area for that matter. I am trying to restore one and a fresh look at one would be a definite moral booster.

BTW, the car looked nice from the other side of the highway.... speedy too! :D

I have a blue GT but not the one you saw. It's in the garage due to a bad brake light switch. I believe there's a guy in Blue Springs with one. I bought some taillight lenses from him (eBay). Occasionally I see an orange GT with Cragar wheels in North Kansas City. The last white GT I saw was in a wreck at Antioch and Kendalwood in the mid-90's.

I bought my GT in 1996 from a guy in KCMO near Parkville. He bought it to race but never got around to it. His wife decided to drive it to work. So he repaired it and she drove it for a couple years.

I would bet that the blue one belongs to a guy out in Lone Jack...I have e-mailed him a couple of times when I was first starting the tear-down of my GT.

I am in Kingsville....about 20 miles east of Lee's Summit. My car is going to be a track only car, Hopefully this weekend it will be in for the cage, a week for that and it is off for final paint and assembly. If it gets done in time and it looks like I hope I plan on "volunteering" for the car to be part of the SCCA display at World of Wheels. I have A-LOT of work to do before it gets to that point.

GT at euro

Bucky,
I looked at the GT at Euroasian Salvage in Wichita. it is a 69 and a total rust bucket. Still has the engine and trans. Wants around $400.00 for the engine. A little steep I thought. Bob
