1968 Shelby GT500KR

on our way to eat dinner saturday night, the beautiful mrs k and i saw one of these. it's a 1968 Shelby GT500KR Mustang. That's a lot of words and letters for one car, but it's pretty special.

it was sort of an odd sighting. it was in original condition, which means that it was not pristine. there were some real paint blemishes, and a tiny bit of rust around the top of the front fender. in other words, an unrestored example of a very valuable collector car.

an older couple was driving it, and i couldn't help but wonder if they had bought the car new. they looked about the right age. it would have to be a hard decision: keep driving the classic, super valuable car or plunge the money into it to restore it, making it more valuable? because a poor or incorrect restoration is worse than none at all.

oh well. i don't have to worry about it. but one does wonder.

Nice to see they were still out cruising and not sitting in a garage.
