1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

Not a real car I'm sure... Nice but home built and not Shelby built.

Re: 1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

Video is so full of fail. Just a clone car from a wrecked CSX. Car has been around for years and is very nice. I especially love the part about the Fiberides being lighter than aluminum. My accurate doctors scale says NOPE! The pic of Shelby on the page is with the Birthday car, not the convertible.

Clone it is, but definitely a nice job on transferring all the Shelby specific items.

Re: 1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

love it all but the wing. Really irritating the guy didn't do the last step. The CSX wing actually lifts at that plastic strip. Add a tiny plastic spacer and on it goes. Always wanted to do this to my 92, but black with the gold.

Re: 1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

It's an absolutely beautiful car that is extremely well done but it's presented like it's the real deal. It looks like they even riveted an 89 engine plate to the radiator support. It's not my car or my call but I'd sure feel a whole lot better if they mentioned somewhere that it is a custom built car and not a real Shelby.

Re: 1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

From listening to the guy, it's not his car, and he's not educated in our cars enough to know that it's a fake car. So he thinks it's a real Shelby. Maybe someone should comment on his video on Youtube and tell him the real story.

It was built by Tim Costello, and displayed at SDAC-10.
It's a Dodge Shadow convertible with all the parts from an 89 Shelby CSX-VNT added.

I took pics of it at the show.

Re: 1991 CSX convertible ??wtf??

I've seen this car in person. It is a VERY nice car. It is a clone of an '89 CSX VNT that was totaled IIRC. The rear wing is from a Mustang GT. It looks like the video was taken possibly at the Garlits show in Ocala, Fl, but I saw it at Carlisile, PA in the early 2000's.
