LECOMPTON, Kansas Imagine cleaning out a garage and finding something so amazing that it was like winning the lottery. It happened to a Lecompton businessman. Working as an auctioneer for the last 40 years, Bill Fair said he has come across some weird stuff. "A skull, body parts," he said.
But Fair said even he wasn't prepared for what he found recently. What Fair found was a classic 66 Shelby Mustang one of only 1,100 made, and sold from Carroll Shelby's personal car lot.

My DIL’s grandmother has a Pony car that has been in the garage since the late ‘60s, it belonged to her son who died coming home after a tour in Vietnam.
Nice ! I remember back in 1988, I over in Ohio and I was with my aunt at the pool. A gentleman drove in and had a Shelby, perfect condition ! I chatted with him. Back then I would have given my left nut for one of them ! Looking at his car, it was a manual transmission version as well, definitely top in my book !
In 1980 I lived in a small town in Arkansas, place called Crossett. One day I was driving home from work and I noticed the rear left quarter panel of a car sticking out from under a tarp under a neighbor’s carport. 1969 Shelby Mustang, I could not believe it. I knew what it was. I walked over there and knocked on the door and found a little old lady inside, she told me that was her son’s car and he was away in the USMC and would be coming home to put it back together one of these days. I offered to by it outright but she wouldn’t budge.
I wonder what ever happened to that car.
Poll: Number of nanoseconds until the lawyer that authorized the manager to clean up changes his mind an demands ownership of the car.
