Would you rather see a '67-'68 fastback made into a Shelby clone or an Eleanore?

  1. Shelby, of course.

    23.3%
  2. If you're gonna mod it, make it an Eleanore!

    11.7%
  3. Leave the poor fastback alone, what did it do to deserve this?

    25.0%
  4. My god, aren't we tired of this Eleanore crap yet?

    40.0%
  1. Ok, first, I want it noted that I posted this in its correct place, the talk side, out of respect to the tech side of this forum.

    So there have been a bunch of Eleanore threads, including poll, so I thought I'd post one that begs the question: Which whould folks really rather have, a Shelby clone or an Eleanor clone?

    So register your vote, then rant your reason(s), then lets kill this entire Eleanor thing for while. ;)
     
  2. I would rather have a shelby clone.
     
  3. You forgot choice #5 : "Leave US alone, what did we do to deserve ANOTHER Eleanor thread!" :doh:
     
  4. Eleanor with a twist is my vote. Can't have exactly what the next guy has. Know what I mean.
     
  5. :lol: :nice:
     
  6. ...

    100% Agreed.

    It's his ****ing car, leave him the hell alone with it.
     
  7. WTF are you talking about?:scratch:
     
  8. I think he's talking about the thread Hopkinator ran on the tech side about converting a real Shelby into an Eleanor. But hey, 70stangcoupe, lets remember that the Hopkinator knew what he was getting into, and he did litterally ask for it...

    :shrug:
     
  9. Imust say that the real Eleanor is NOT a 67 Shelby. It's a 73 Mach 1 Q code. Just ask electricgreen. as to 67 mods: BE CREATIVE and true to yourself.

    and here's your penny back.

    edit: I elected the last one. I'm tired of people calling the 67 Cage fastback "Eleanor". It didn't earn it. Chase was too short.
     
  10. I picked "leavethe poor fastback alone" only because the answer I would like to have picked is not available. Assume lots of money left to play with after the chassis/brakes are done.

    Givens: It would end up being restomodded.
    While I like FE's, I think a Windsor would be a better "fit".
    I'm not afraid of electronics, and I think re-jetting carbs every 1000' change in altitude is a pain!

    With the two givens, I'm thinking a 393W with 5.0 MAF EFI. A Shelby style hood would give more clearance for the TFS intake, without the look of cowl induction which I don't like or that even more butt-fugly hideous Eleanor "power bump" (swear to God, I saw that term being used to describe the hood somewhere).

    So, I thinking the 67 Shelby style hood (and maybe the 10 spokes :nice: ) on an otherwise nice looking FB (or coupe :nice: ).

  11. Yeah, I was careful to limit the options of the poll to give this poll a subtle twist... I really wanted folks to make a decision between #1 a Shelby, #2 an Eleanor, #3 a stock fastback, or #4 "get over it all and do your own thing already", without getting bogged down in the "real" vs fake vs. converted vs. restomod, etc...
     
  12. i just like fastbacks...

    is that so wrong?
     
  13. No, but you are!:D;)







    Saw my dream carlast week.....'65 FB GT...gorgeous! I still drool just thinking about it!
