Looking for GT/CS to purchase

Since Jason keeps intercepting all the California Specials heading to Houston (kind of like the Cuban Missle Crisis boycott) and since he won't park one of his cars in my garage, it looks like I need to take the drastic measure of publicly announcing that I am looking for a GT/CS to purchase.

Small block
Highland Green, Lime Gold, Presidential Blue, White, Yellow, Gulfstream Aqua
Must have working air (houston)
No projects right now, at least not until we finish Bill's car.
I certainly don't have Jason's bank account but am not afraid to pay a fair price for the right car.

Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.

There is a white with blue stripe GT/CS up for auction at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota May 13th and 14th. It is lot #152 and it is through www.midamericaauctions.com. They don`t have a description of the car, only pictures. It looks alot like one I`ve seen on this site. :) Rhonda

Interesting. Looks like the passenger script doesn't quite line up correctly and there is a horse in the grille.

Rhonda do you know if there is any way to get more information on cars in this auction?

Thanks for your help.

Hey, I just realized that I'll be in Sabin in August and may need to see how my friend with the not-for-sale red GT/CS is doing. If she wants to talk cars is it ok if I have her contact you either through this site or your personal email?

Re:Looking for GT/CS to purchase

Hey Arlie, yes that would be great for your friend to contact me. I love making new friends. Maybe on your way up there to Sabin you could stop by and say Hi to me and my husband. You could give me your opinion on my GT/CS. I bought it by myself and have never had it looked at by anybody that knows about them. You seem to know alot.
As for the auction, the latest member of this site happens to be someone involved with midamericaauctions. I`d try emailing him. The site has the same email address as he does. :)Rhonda

Re:Looking for GT/CS to purchase

Rhonda, sounds like a good idea. My wife and I are going to make a mini-vacation out of this trip. We are flying into Minneapolis, driving to the North Shore for a few days there, then to Sabin for her brother's wedding, and then back to MSP. Where do you live in relationship to that route? I also fly to MSP a lot for business so if the August trip doesn't work maybe we can hook up on a subsequent trip. We few Highland Green fans need to stick together.

Re:Looking for GT/CS to purchase

Hey...I'm the biggest Highland Green fan...and am still looking for a Highland Green GT/CS (Rhonda?). Can't seem to break one loose. Strangley enough, I've been able to find a Highland Green 1968 Shelby GT500KR convertible, and a Highland Green 19681/2 CJ...but no GT/CS...what's up with that? Someone help me...please.

Re:Looking for GT/CS to purchase

My theory is that since Highland Green with whtie stripes is the the truest expression of what a GT/CS should be the people who own them just can't bear to get rid of them. One option would be to take one of those blue wannabes and paint it green. ;D

Arlie,
I live 2 hours west and a little south of Minneapolis. It would be out of your way. So maybe some other time.

Very nice looking cars. You'll find one eventually. That's one of the reasons I bought my 68 GT Coupe, Highland Green. The 390 in it was a plus.

Re:Looking for GT/CS to purchase

That's a beautiful car. I love the white top.

And so the search for the illusive Highland Green GT/CS continues. The Holy Grail would be easier to find. If anyone knows of any for sale, please let me know.

Scott

Only in my dreams. Even with those meats, I have to peddle it sometimes just to keep the rear in check. She does hook-up pretty nice though.
