    Thanks to" Kiwitahi Ken "

    Ken H .. " The Boy from Kiwitahi " has done good. We appreciate seeing other peoples photos. Anyone else's collection in the pipeline?.
    I agree with Paulb, Spgeti and others - with me - not only over morning coffee, but often viewed at the time of the " 5 O'clock-er ", a Cold Beer, as is happening right now 4;45 actually -I am early.

    Cheers from " The Omokoroa Kid ".

    Of course there has to be a photo -may not be relevant but a photo never the less !!. My two favourite cars a TR4 and an Austin Healey, they now sit on the wall in my garage !!

    A Jerry Melton photo from a Club event in 1963 - two Healey's in the carpark

    Ken H - Stole this from you - Ray ERC Green knows I do it if a Healey is involved.
    Your thread sees it first !!

    In the foreground, of course it is, but Roger has spotted the 2 Healeys beyond the speaker.

    To each his own, there is a possible Mini Cooper crouching in the background !

    [QUOTE=khyndart in CA;66845]Just one p.s.
    I noted that the Lola T332 that Brian Redman was driving at Mosport in June 1975 was chassis HU 45 and owned by Carl Haas.

    In September 1975 at Long Beach, Brian Redman was still in the same car but it was now run by Jim Hall and was painted in "Boraxo" (hand cleaner )colours.

    Hyndman's signed photo of Brian Redman and Jim Hall beside the newly painted Lola at Long Beach.

    The same car today as it appeared at Laguna Seca in 2015.
    K Hyndman photo.


    Ken Just a note on your T332s here. The picture of the Boraxo T332 at Long Beach with the Brian Redman
    signature over it is the HU45 chassis. This car is now in Australia, nearly ready to run after a restoration
    The car in the picture at Laguna in 2015 is HU56 which is a T332c that he used in 1976. The pictures in
    post #171 are HU45. It would be yellow and blue if the pictures were in colour, and shows the damage
    to the side of the tub, before it was repaired. Incidentally the BJ Swanson T332 in post #166, is one of the
    chassis that Haas/Hall Redman used in the 1974 series. This isn't the car that he (Swanson) became
    deceased in though. Very good pictures thank you sir

    Ken Miles was the driver that day of the car designated 5R002 # 98.
    It was white with blue stripes and was the first ever "R" model Shelby Mustang.
    Jerry Melton's photos captured that momentous day for the Shelby Mustang.

    This Shelby Mustang has made the news this week, July 17th 2020.

    " Ken Miles' “Flying Mustang” 1965 Shelby GT350R becomes most valuable Mustang in history."

    At almost $ 4 million US I don't think this particular Shelby Mustang GT_350 R will ever be driven again like this as Ken Miles did in 1965.
    (I love the comment of shifting in mid-air, I myself have never tried that !)

    Awesome shots Ken of your namesake.
    who would have thought after Ken Miles was finished with it in 65 it would be worth what it is today.
    Cheers
