Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

The Detail Boss: GT500 Eleanor Mustang At Scottsdale Barrett Jackson Auto Auction Detail of the Year
This 1968 Shelby GT500 Eleanor was sold at Barrett Jackson Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ on January 18, 2013. The owner/builder of the car wanted perfection. The list of work he wanted done to the car by us is extensive. We sanded out all orange peel from every painted surface including the hood and trunk (both the top side and underside), door jambs, trunk jambs, engine bay, and the rest of the exterior of the vehicle. Followed by compounding to remove all sanding marks, we then compounded and polished this beautiful one of a kind twin supercharged 427 small block out to perfection with a total of 9 steps. This is by far the most elaborate detail we have ever performed. It is beyond concourse-level. For more information about who we are, what we do, and the builders of this car, contact us today. http://www.scottsdalecardetailing.com/

1968 Corvette L-88 #12 Owens/Corning FIA/SCCA Racecar Sold To Rick Hendrick At Barrett-Jackson
Congratulations to Mr. Rick Hendrick for winning a phenominal piece of Corvette history tonight at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mr. Hendrick also went on to win Vin #0001 of the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray. Details and info about the '68 L-88 Owens/Corning #12 Corvette Racecar: (Copied from RM Auctions) Est. 685 bhp at 6,600 rpm, 427 CID L-88 big block Chevrolet racing engine, Muncie M-22 "Rockcrusher" transmission, front and rear independent suspension, coil springs to the front, and transverse leaf to the rear with Koni adjustable shock absorbers. Wheelbase: 98" • Generally considered the most victorious racing Corvette in history • Ex-Tony DeLorenzo and Jerry Thompson • Multiple SCCA championships; NCRS American Heritage Award • Fresh Kevin MacKay restoration • Extensive documentation America's Star-Spangled Sports Car For nearly four decades, the Chevrolet Corvette was the only sports car designed and built in North America. Capable of taking on and beating the world's best production sports and GT cars on the international circuit, Corvettes roared on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, flew on the high banks at Daytona, and blazed their lights around Sebring. On amateur SCCA circuits, Corvettes won fourteen "A Production" and fifteen "B Production" divisional titles in the 1962 to 1976 period. SCCA Nationals saw Corvettes capturing no less than 25 Run-Off Championships in A, B, and C Production in the same time frame. A Russian born ex-race driver and engineer hired by GM's Ed Cole gets the credit for the almost unbelievable transformation that took place from 1954 to 1957. The '53 Corvette was thoroughly underpowered, but the 1957 V-8 version won its class at Sebring, as well as the Sports Car Club of America "B" Production National Championship. In fact, in 1960, a Cunningham Corvette placed First in GT at Le Mans! "Corvette -- The Real McCoy" trumpeted the full page ads in the national media and that really said it best. The classic, solid axle Corvette gave way to the beautiful Sting Ray coupes and convertibles with independent suspension in 1963, and four-wheel disc brakes became standard in 1965. In 1968, it emerged as the dramatic Stingray (one word) with a "Coke bottle" shape, inspired by the '67 Mako Shark Show Car. Corvette Big Block Bruisers: "The Fast and the Few" Only a few Corvettes can legitimately claim membership in this exclusive club. John Greenwood's "Stars & Stripes" L-88 cars of the 1968--1973 period, backed by BFG and often racing on that company's new radial tires, certainly qualify for this short list. Dave Heinz's two Corvettes, liveried as "Rebel Flag" cars in a competitive response to the BFG effort and driven by Heinz and Bob Johnson, often beat the Greenwood team due to better race strategy and superior reliability. However, the very best racing results were scored by the two Tony DeLorenzo/Jerry Thompson Corvette team cars, which contested both the SCCA Divisional and National circuit, as well as all of the important U.S.A.-based FIA distance races. One of these, 002/68, their 1968 Owens/Corning Fiberglas L-88 car, is the very same that we are privileged to present here. Impressive period results include the 1969 and 1972 SCCA National "A" Production Championships, 1968 and 1970 SCCA National "A" Production Runner-Up, Second Place in GT at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 1969 and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona. In the 1970 event, it finished Sixth Overall, behind two Porsche 917s, a Ferrari 512, and two Ferrari 312s, but ahead of a Ferrari 250 LM in Seventh and a Ford GT40 in Eighth. This car, together with its team car, won 22 of 22 SCCA/FIA National Events during 1969--1971, with this car winning 11 of these! Observers will note that these two team cars changed numbers for each race entered, in order to give the perception of a large team effort. This car was always the highest numbered car and driven most often by Jerry Thompson.
