    Exactly. That's where I got the term "Legal Criminals" from.

    Anyhow, anyone else work on any cool cars?

    PS: I have never worked on any cars that are generally considered as cool. I thought my new 1988 Thunderbird TurboCoupe was pretty cool, but others would probably disagree.

    He keeps them in a warehouse in one state and lives in another. He's a 40 so year old retired software tycoon. Joe kaminkow. I used to work at a shop next door but I don't work there anymore. Actually I think it's not software, but slot machines and pinball.

    Is it just me, or does the dash in that Shelby look like it came out of an early '90's Tercel/Paseo?

    Ugly interior

    Gauge cluster is from a 97-02 fbody. HVAC controls and a couple of other things are GM parts bin from different models. I do agree that it looks like a kit car on the inside.

    I've never worried about it but some do

    Difference between thousands of people seeing it a day and posting it on the net is most don't give our cars a second glance on the street, let alone care what our plates say. But on here, that's all we do is pay attention to every detail about every car.

    EVERY time a cop - ANY cop - or ANY agency for that matter - runs a plate number -
    that query information is stored in a database - forever -
    which cop - from which car - from which dispatcher - at what time etc -
    and that is true for all 50 states -

    that is one of the reasons it's NOT so easy to "run plates" anymore -

    Re: Cool cars I've worked on

    As most veterans of the CF know I am not particularly knowledgeable (probably an understatement) nor experienced in automobile mechanics. Any thing newer than the 1970's is way out of my realm of experience. That being said, it seems highly improbable that I would have actually worked on any kind of car that would be seen as "neat" much less "cool." But as strange as it may seem I have worked on some fairly exotic automobiles.

    Back in the late 1960's and early 1970's I used to spend my days, when I was home on 30 day per year vacations from my overseas assignments hanging out at my mechanic and good friend Frank Monise's shop in Pasadena, CA. I met Frank when he was recommended for the maintenance of my Lamborghini 350 GT in 1968. Hanging around the shop, I worked, under Frank's supervision, on my own car, but also on Lamborghini Miuras, Aston Martins and Ferraris. My specialty was changing spark plugs (all of these cars had aluminum alloy heads and special care had to be taken when changing the plugs to keep from stripping the threads in the head. My real specialty was changing the plugs on Miuras, because, due to the tight fit between the cockpit fire wall and the transversally mounted engine, the right bank of this four overhead can engine was very difficult to reach without removing the tree down draft Weber's and the intake manifold. However, unlike my mechanic friends hands, mine were rather small and I could reach in a seat the plug puller when the other guys couldn't, thus allowing me to only have to remove the air filter housing to get to the plugs and take them out and replace them them with new ones. Needless to say this was a major time saver!

    With the tricks that Frank taught me to be able to properly seat the new plugs in the aluminum head before tightening I was able to help out with the changing of spark plus in the much less taxing longitudinally mounted engines in Jags, Lambos, Alfas, Ferraris that came into the shop for tuneups and service.

    I really enjoyed those days in Frank's shop and having the opportunity to go to SCCA road track races with the guys and meeting many of the greats of sports car and formula racing of the day.

    I continued to work, doing minor things, to my Lambo and E-type until recently, but never worked on my Detroit cars, or even more modern European ones.
