Remember the Mark Twain novel, "The Prince and the Pauper", a story about two lookalike boys, one a poor street kid and the other a prince, exchange places to see what the other's life is like. Well, that's exactly how the story of "Lucky" the 1965 Shelby GT350R model is beginning to look. This poor little car looks as if it's been to hell and back but I plan on getting him all cleaned up, placing him in a new environment, a lot of refining, a little polishing and with a lot of hard work to details he will become the prince he once was and deserves to be.
Today my trusty dog Nitrus and I went on an 8 hour journey to Fresno California to pick up the Pauper GT350 and now he is safe at his new home at California's Best where the task at hand will begin. Most guys like to name their rides and many give them a girls name as if they were a ship or something but I have decided I am going to name the car "Lucky." Welcome home Lucky.
