The 1986/1987 Shelby GLHS vehicles
Kazzer introduces the long overlooked low budget performance sports cars
from Caroll Shelbys Chrysler turbo days,
the 1986 Shelby GLHS (sedan) and the 1987 Shelby GLHS (coupe)
These weren't just Shelby stickered up Chryslers, the GLHS series of cars
were taken to Shelbys Whittier CA skunkworks facility where the performance
was bumped up all around and limited editions were made..
1986 GLHS's = 500 total
1987 GLHS's - 1,000 total
Shelby Dodge Tribute
This is a short video dedicated to the forgotten Shelby cars and their turbocharged Mopar siblings.
The photos were taken by me at the annual SDAC convention, that was held in
Chicagoland this year.
For more information on these 80's pocket rockets head over to www.turbo-mopar.com
Note: The beginning dialogue is Shelby talking about a Supercharged
Charger; I couldn't seem to find some useable audio that pertained to the
use of the turbochargers in the numbered
cars that followed... But it still has its merits.
Thanks for watching!

Dodge Omni GLH Shift Linkage Installation
I installed the Great Lakes Hot Rods L body Shift Linkage kit in my Omni
There are some differences between the NA GLH and turbo model shift linkages which gave me a really
rough time. Notice where my NA ball socket is on the long piece which goes
to the shifter vs. stock. See also how my piece is angled so much more than
the turbo piece is.
If you barely install the spherical bearing into the rod that will be a
great starting place to allow for proper movement and placement of the
shifter for the NA models. Installing the ball on the opposite side like
stock may help, but I was following the directions, and the height wouldn't
have been all that different anyway.
At 2:31 you can see the arm which goes to the shifter and compare it to a
turbo one in the instructions you're

About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.
