From Barrett-Jackson’s Craig Jackson and Team Find “Little Red,” the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 EXP Prototype:
Quote:

DEARBORN, Mich., – August 17, 2018 – Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction Company, Shell and Pennzoil today announced during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan that Shelby American’s 1967 Shelby GT500 EXP prototype nicknamed Little Red was located and verified on March 3, 2018. The team who discovered Little Red was led by Jackson and classic car restoration specialist Jason Billups, and consisted of leading experts who located the vehicle in rural North Texas, where it has been stored by the same owner for more than two decades. The discovery of Little Red, which was largely presumed destroyed after years of searching, is considered one of the most significant finds in American car collector history....

Little Red was stored in outdoor conditions for nearly two decades. As a result, the restoration of Little Red will be one of the most meticulous projects in American car collector history. The restoration will be fully documented on www.ShelbyPrototypeCoupes.com and include photos, videos and a robust content storyboard that will detail each step of the rebuild....

To further document Little Red’s history, the public can submit personal accounts, stories and photos that feature Little Red. This will be the first time that a collector car vehicle will be substantiated, in part, using a crowdsourcing initiative on www.ShelbyPrototypeCoupes.com.
From Freep.com: 1st Mustang Shelby GT 500 found; experts crowd-source its history
Quote:

The car sleuths who tracked it down are hoping to crowdsource info to fill in the blanks, particularly with information from the Detroit area....

“That’s why it’s so important to do this in Detroit,” [Jackson] said Saturday. “The car spent time here after Ford bought Shelby. There have to be people here with photos and information.”
Anyone have any stories or photos?

It seems to me, when I was growing up back in the last century, that there were frequent severe storms this time of year. By severe, I mean tornado warnings, hail, green skies, frequent news interruptions on TV, and then the resulting scurry of news crews to cover the damage.

The past few summers it's seemed pretty calm around here, even with the heat and humidity (which seemed to bring storms) and then the nice cold fronts afterwards.

What say you?

Grand Jury to Probe Detroit Councilman Gabe Leland https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23473-Grand-Jury-to-Probe-Detroit-Councilman-Gabe-Leland&goto=newpost Fri, 17 Aug 2018 14:13:45 GMT
Innocent until proved guilty, yes, but it has been a while since we have had any Clowncil hijinks...
"A federal grand jury has been impaneled to investigate claims that Detroit City Councilman Gabe Leland allegedly extorted thousands of dollars in free alcohol, food and other items in exchange for political promises from a shuttered downtown bar, according to a subpoena obtained by the Free Press.

"The subpoena was issued Aug. 8 by Assistant U.S. Attorney R. Michael Bullotta and sought all documentation related to Leland possibly obtaining:

  • Free entry into parties or events
  • Free alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks
  • Free food, including entrees, appetizers and desserts
  • Any other items of value provided free of charge or at a discounted price

"The probe is the latest twist in a lengthy legal battle that began in November 2016 when the co-owners of the former Centre Park Bar, 1407 Randolph, first filed a lawsuit against Mayor Mike Duggan and other city officials. Leland has not been charged with any crime.

"The original suit, which is still winding through the court system, claimed police harassment and alleged Dennis Archer Jr., former Mayor Dennis Archer's son, received favorable treatment while buying the building the bar occupied. "

What audience/ target do you think governor Andrew Cuomo (an immigrants son) is reaching, directly or indirectly thru his statement?

This is an electronic ticket, so I can email it to you, but it will need to be printed out for admission. Please message me if you're interested. I am asking $150.

Can anyone tell me what the marker or monument is in the center of the I-75/I375/Gratiot interchange near Ford Field pictured below? I have driven by it a thousand times and never known what it was. It appears that there is a marker on it so I dont believe it is just remnants of an old light pole or something like that.

Google is good for almost everything, but I could not find any information about this one.

Pennsylvania Priest Abuse https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23464-Pennsylvania-Priest-Abuse&goto=newpost Wed, 15 Aug 2018 16:10:29 GMT
I won't copy and paste any article because it is so disturbing on all levels. Youngest victim was 18 months old! The fact that the victim's reported the abuse for years and were disregarded, is unfathomable. It is being said the statute of limitations may be overturned in this case because of the level and amount of abuse that went on.

I grew up catholic and went to church all my life up until about 15 years ago when our parish priest was accused and let go (retired) after approaching and trying to seduce the head of the catechism program (a male I might add). Spending lavishly on redecorating the rectory with high end everything. I ended up going only on holidays but I'm done. Enough with looking the other way and moving these pigs from parish to parish.
