Killexams : Ukraine’s Additive Manufacturing Industry Needs Your Help
An additive manufacturing center in Ukraine? [Source: 3D Print Ukraine]

There are moves underway to develop additive manufacturing operations in Ukraine, and we believe everyone should pitch in to help.

I spoke at length with Alexander Mertens and Sergei Naleskin, who are coordinating efforts in that country. I connected to them through Eugene Giller of RIZE fame, and who now operates Palitra, a company that produces full color 3D printing equipment.

As everyone knows, Ukraine is currently enduring an aggressive invasion in the east from neighboring Russia. This ongoing event has caused turmoil in much of the country, yet even so there are plenty of areas in the western regions still operating more or less normally.

Nevertheless, sections of Ukraine’s industrial east have been devastated by Russia, causing workers to lose their homes and jobs, and fleeing to the safer western parts of the country. There, they seek new jobs.

It’s important to note that Ukraine is quite an advanced country in many respects. They are well-known for their software expertise, for example. I personally know of several highly successful software operations in Ukraine that have long offered highly skilled programmers at very low cost to western countries in a kind of overseas offering model.

The manufacturing team above looks to be attempting to organize something similar, but for advanced manufacturing instead of software. It may indeed work, as they seem to have many of the pieces already at their disposal.

One of the spaces available for development in Ukraine [Source: Eugene Giller]

They have a large space available for development in the far western part of the country, quite near the border, and about as far away from the war as you can get and still be in Ukraine. The country also has inexpensive electricity, which will also be useful in setting up new additive operations.

The key, of course, is people. With the eastern areas vacated of businesses, there are large numbers of highly experienced engineers and designers available. They’re also not going anywhere, as Ukraine currently does not allow military-aged males to leave the country. That said, there are some previously outside the country, but Naleskin believes many would return to Ukraine to work using their speciality training in companies if spots were available.

Teaching engineers in Ukraine [Source: Eugene Giller]

They also have significant training capability. Mertens has long been a business school professor at the leading business school in Ukraine, and has a considerable educational network.

Naleskin said their original idea was to create an advanced manufacturing center near Kyiv, but eventually realized the engineers needed some training upgrades as their skills relate to older equipment. Naleskin explained:

”We tried to understand what is necessary to link interactions with industrial processes, both during and after the war, using new technology instead of old processes in manufacturing.
We know many people are involved in this, but their technology is not up to date. There is 3D manufacturing equipment, but it’s not very new. It’s necessary to get absolutely new everything!
Computer programs, 3D printers, scanners, everything is necessary to teach people.”

Giller explained:

“We are looking for partners to help educate from design to manufacturing. We are connected to several young companies in Ukraine, but they have a rudimentary understanding of advanced techniques and equipment. They do understand subtractive manufacturing, but have limited additive and mass production experience.”

They want to make a new, institute of modern technology, including additive manufacturing.

The group does have quite a bit of experience operating joint educational programs with UK, Canada and the USA, with connections to universities and developers. This will be of great use when additive partnerships evolve.

3D scanning a part in Ukraine [Source: Eugene Giller]

One of the pieces they don’t have is equipment. According to Mertens, there are very few advanced 3D printers in Ukraine:

“We surveyed for 3D printers, and found only one HP device in Odessa, with intentions of buying one more; there are 2 Formlabs Fuse 1 machines, and one Formlabs SLA device. For SLS, there is one Sinterit device. Mostly there are inexpensive Asian devices, but they are not that useful for manufacturing. Our SLA profile is very basic, and we need CAD licenses.”

The country apparently has no metal 3D printing capacity whatsoever at this time, and that’s almost a requirement for today’s advanced manufacturing practices.

Mertens added:

“The demand side deeply needs development of modern technology for production. Ukraine lost a large part of production potential in the east, as well as disrupted logistic chains.

On the supply side there are lots of qualified engineers. Sievierodonetsk [a major city in the industrial east of Ukraine] was recently flattened by Russia. The people are now spread out and need jobs.”

For now the group has set up a new website, 3D Print Ukraine, while they develop plans for the additive manufacturing center. Meanwhile, the site offers the ability to 3D print a variety of interesting items, such as the “3D Printed Sunken Russian Warship” or the “3D Printed Ukrainian Salute To Invaders – Middle Finger”.

While these prints may seem fun, both Mertens and Naleskin say the funds raised by sale of these items is extraordinarily valuable to those in Ukraine, and I encourage readers to check out their offers.

Hearing all this, it seems clear to me that this group needs assistance and partnership from western 3D printer companies to help develop their additive manufacturing center.

If there are any readers from companies like EOS, 3D Systems, Stratasys, Formlabs, Desktop Metal, Autodesk, Dassault, Autodesk, Markforged, SLM Solutions, GE Additive, Siemens, HP and others, please consider contacting the group through their website to discuss opportunities to partner on equipment and software licenses. Smaller companies can also consider participating. For example, companies like Xact Metal, Minifactory, and Massivit all offer advanced manufacturing capabilities that would certainly be more than welcome in Ukraine.

One concept that might fly in my mind is a hybrid operation where there is an additive production center combined with an educational program. The program could produce workers for the additive operation, which could then make inexpensive parts for the west.

Of course, there are many other possibilities, and that’s up to discussions between the Ukraine group and western providers.

The war that’s currently underway won’t last forever, and when it ends Ukraine will resume its path towards advanced technology, as its engineering history demonstrates. It might be a very strategic move to start the establishment of facilities now in preparation for major growth later.

This could be a significant long-term opportunity.

If you’ve gotten this far into this piece, please consider contacting Ukraine to see how you and your company can help.

Killexams : ‘Immortal’ Clients, Food Crisis, and Crypto: Community Conversations

This past Tuesday marked the 43rd anniversary of Yankees catcher Thurman Munson’s death. I still remember the day vividly. I was tossing a baseball with a good friend when a radio broadcaster announced that Munson had been killed in a plane crash

Photo Illustration by Staff; Dreamstime

For 11-year-old kids who lived, breathed, and slept baseball, it was unbelievable. After all, the 32-year-old team captain and seven-time All-Star was in the prime of his career and had just played against the Chicago White Sox a day earlier. 

Today his death resonates more as tragedy and something surreal rather than something unbelievable. Adulthood teaches us that nothing in life is guaranteed. And yet many, including those much older than 32, assiduously avoid the subject of their own mortality. 

As such, advisors should consider practicing this cautionary tale about a brilliant trusts and estates scholar who died without a valid will. It underscores the importance of making sure clients’ plans are in good order well before they pass. While it may be uncomfortable to remind clients of their mortality, doing so in the service of crafting a sound estate plan is a key way to demonstrate value. 

This subject struck a profound chord with readers.

David Johnson: “My financial advisor at Schwab is always mentioning this to me. At the first of June 2022, I went in for a “simple” biopsy and ended up with sepsis. Seven days in ICU and a doctor telling me every day that if I hadn’t got to the hospital then, I only had 12 to 24 hours left.  From perfectly healthy (almost) to almost dead in 24 hours!  My family almost learned this lesson the hard way.”

Carl Book: “I think I need to have a will drafted.”

David McCormick: “Makes me feel guilty to read these wise words.🙂”


These companies can help solve the global food crisis. This perfect storm is due partly to a paucity of storms. Scorching heat and drought are shriveling crops in the Midwest and eastern Africa. Along with the impact of the pandemic and war in Ukraine, nations are struggling to feed the hungry. However, innovative companies such as Deere (ticker: DE) and Corteva (CTVA) could make a difference, according to Barron’s cover story. Among the dozens of comments left by readers here are a few notable ones.  

Chris Bentsen:Deere is the global leader in agricultural equipment. With an exemplary management committed to R&D plus returning copious amounts of cash back to shareholders through dividends and buybacks this is a name to own for the long haul.”

Hugh Wilbanks: “The VanEck Agribusiness ETF (MOO) is invested in nearly all the companies mentioned in the article plus many others on a truly global scale with 54% being American companies. It also has a Morningstar four-star rating.  Don’t know why it was not mentioned in the article.”

Mickey Cashen: “For the long term, the only way to sustain growth in food production is to Strengthen irrigation efficiency. Irrigation is responsible for 75% of all freshwater use and 50% of it evaporates before it helps plants. Additionally, with fresh water sources drying up all over, it’s clear that cheap methods to desalinate sea water will be necessary.”


SEC charges 11 over alleged $300 million crypto fraud. Regulators allege that the creators of Forsage fraudulently raised money from millions of retail investors around the world. Two readers, including a self-described investment advisor, found little common ground. Below are excerpts from each of their posts. 

Chuck Degall: “Just sickening. People who buy crypto will lose it all. They’ve been warned enough, as crypto doesn’t even exist. It’s all a Ponzi scheme. It’s worthless. You want to own something fantastic? Buy Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), CVS Health (CVS), Google (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN).”

John Eidmann: “Crypto is NOT worthless. Blockchain is a secure technology of the future – transactions without the middleman (banks) bilking you to death with fees…If you want to invest in the future of blockchain technologies stick with the best, just like you would with stocks, otherwise it’s just like investing in high risk pink sheet penny stocks.”

Chuck: “Banks charge no fees when you send someone a check or transfer money via ACH.  Every crypto exchange I know of charges you fees for such basic things. Your main argument doesn’t hold up well. Also, my money is safe in banks and at major brokerage companies.”

John: “In 2008 the entire global financial system almost melted down like Three Mile Island. What saved it? The printing of trillions and trillions of FIAT dollars, further devaluing it. How many fiat currencies have survived throughout history? None. Our monetary system is a house of cards.” 

Chuck: “I’m an investment advisor and I try to help people like you to have a more open mind about what has always worked over time. These fads like bitcoin come and go and people get wiped out. I believe it’s ultimately going to zero.”

Killexams : A beginner’s guide to bouldering in the Hudson Valley

The easiest route to the sport of climbing is via bouldering: a full-body workout that only requires some shoes that grip, a pad to fall on, and some chalk to soak up the hand sweat.

In fact, bouldering is now the most common form of indoor climbing, with gyms sprouting up in cities as well as more rural areas that have popular outdoor climbing areas, like the Shawangunk Ridge, which is rich in rock-climbing routes and history as well as simple to complex bouldering puzzles.

So, what is bouldering exactly? Bouldering is essentially climbing without the use of ropes but with (hopefully) some padding below. It generally happens close to the ground on boulders not larger than 12 to 15 feet, but you can also boulder on lower cliff ledges. There are larger rocks to tackle, but that gets into different categories of climbing, such as free-soloing (climbing at heights without the aid of ropes) and sport climbing, which may have fixed bolts.

If you have a hankering to get to the mountains, to climb things, to test your body and its ability to scale up and over what appear to be insurmountable challenges — but you’re not quite ready to dangle from a high cliff — you can start from the ground up via bouldering.

The growing popularity of bouldering

Bouldering had a global boom in the late 1990s that drove up its popularity in the Gunks, says Andrew Zalewski, a veteran climber and the owner of Rock & Snow in New Paltz. “Bouldering continues to be popular for many reasons, one of which is that it’s the most accessible form of climbing,” he said. “There’s no knot tying or belaying and being 10 feet in the air is a lot less intimidating than being hundreds of feet in the air.”

Not only that, notes Zalewski, but bouldering, by its nature, allows for more downtime, larger social groups and people of all different abilities being able to climb side by side. “It hits all of these key elements because it’s physical, it’s challenging, it’s social and it’s outdoors,” he said.

In Zalewski’s estimation, the two best places in the region to boulder are at Peters Kill (part of Minnewaska State Park but with its own visitors center) and along the more traditional rope-climbing area on Undercliff Carriage Road at the West Trapps, which are part of Mohonk Preserve.

Bouldering is popular for many reasons, including its accessibility and the social nature.

Bouldering is popular for many reasons, including its accessibility and the social nature.

At Peters Kill, “the landings are pretty flat and there are entry-level, mid and advanced climbs,” Zalewski said. The same goes for Undercliff Carriage Road, where bouldering options run the gamut from low-hanging cliff top challenges to stand-alone boulder problems. It’s also a great place to see the full array of what Gunks climbing has to offer. 

While bouldering is extremely physical, it also tests one’s mental and spatial abilities. Climbers are forced to lunge and leap to grab another hold the size of a small pebble while toes, fingers and knees are trying to secure the body in tiny fissures in the rock.

Zalewski says the Gunks are unusual in that they provide bouldering routes across the “V-scale,” a bouldering grade system that ranges from V0 to V17. That also creates an inclusive subculture at the Gunks. “They can all be hanging out underneath these ledges and boulders and encouraging one another, even when their ability levels vary greatly,” he said.

“It’s a very welcoming community,” said Justin Lamarche, an avid boulderer who works at Rock & Snow. “They are very generous people in terms of helping with technical skills of bouldering and just their knowledge of the sport.”

Steps and gear to start bouldering 

According to Lamarche, someone new to the sport could get by with climbing shoes, a chalk bag and a mat, which folds up and can be carried like a backpack. But like most sports, the more you get into it, the more gear you might acquire, particularly as your bouldering problems get more complicated. 

“People get really into boar’s hairbrushes to clean excess chalk off the rock,” said Zalewski. “Because you’re pushing yourself to your physical limit against the rock, your skin temperature and the temperature of the rock face all play an outsized role on your ability to hang onto a hold.”

To that end, people bring portable fans, dish towels to dry off their sweaty palms and kneebars — neoprene knee pads worn to create a leg hold by jamming your knee into an opening in the rock. There are also hand grips and a variety of climbing-specific flexibility and strengthening tools people use to accent their training. 

All you need to get started bouldering are climbing shoes, a chalk bag and a landing mat, says veteran climber Justin Lamarche.

While there are official outdoor bouldering and rope-climbing areas, there are also two gyms in close proximity to the Gunks: BC’s Climbing Gym in New Paltz and Gravity Vault in Poughkeepsie. Zalewski noted that there are smaller bouldering areas in the Catskills and the Adirondacks and some near Great Barrington, Massachusetts, but none with the wealth of boulders and cliffs and the variety of problems to tackle like the ones in the Gunks. 

“There are some people who will spend years trying to tackle a complicated boulder problem,” he said. “They’ll even make replicas of it in their house to practice. Climbers are weird.”

When is the best time to go bouldering?

The great thing about bouldering is that if it’s raining or snowing, you can utilize the gym and save up your treks outside to the Gunks or more far-flung climbing areas.

Summer is a social time to climb both in the gyms and outdoors, but autumn in the Hudson Valley is certainly the most popular time to strap on that chalk bag and slip on those climbing slippers.

“The region is so beautiful at that time of year, that fall is definitely the most popular season for bouldering,” said Zalewski. His favorite season to go bouldering is winter because the rock stays cool.

Where and how to get started

The Gunks App, which provides a digital guide to climbing in the Shawangunks, is a great guide designed by local climbers to help newcomers and seasoned boulderers alike. If you want to get your hands on a print guide, there is also a guidebook published by Wolverine Press called “Gunks Climbing.”

Bouldering is also very popular for children since there’s less of an investment in both time and equipment. There are several kids’ lessons and specials available at the BC Climbing Gym in New Paltz and Gravity Vault in Poughkeepsie. 

In terms of local stores to get properly fitted and advised for climbing shoes and accessories, there is no better place than Rock & Snow in downtown New Paltz and its lightly used consignment shop next door, the Annex.

There are several professional climbing guides and schools in the area, one of which, EMS, also has an equipment store, located at the base of the Gunks, just across from the Mountain Brauhaus Restaurant. Mountain Skills and Explore Share are two other climbing guide organizations. 

The entry fee for climbing/bouldering at Mohonk Preserve (accessed by the West Trapps parking lot off of Route 44/55 in Gardiner) is $20 per person. To learn more about the Preserve, what it has to offer and cost of membership go to

For Peter’s Kill, just two miles further along Route 44/55, you’ll need an Empire State Parks Pass or to pay a day fee of $10 per vehicle. More information and climbing permits can be found at Both these areas offer a wide variety of swimming, hiking and biking in addition to climbing and bouldering.

Related: Hiking the crown jewel of Mohonk Preserve

Another great organization to get involved with is the Gunks Climbers’ Coalition, a nonprofit band of climbing enthusiasts who work to ensure responsible climbing in the Shawangunks. They have a host of information, events, news and important bouldering/climbing openings and closures. They’ve also just announced a three-day climbing festival in October in Rosendale with food, panels, clinics, competitions, live music and events.

Killexams : SubscriberWrites: 175 years of Sanawar school – a trip down memory lane through a lit fest

Thank you dear subscribers, we are overwhelmed with your response.

Your Turn is a unique section from ThePrint featuring points of view from its subscribers. If you are a subscriber, have a point of view, please send it to us. If not, do subscribe here:

My alma mater celebrates its Dodransbicentennial anniversary this year with various events planned during the year-long celebrations. One such event is a forthcoming book release on Founders Day containing stories written by its alumni and staff. As a precursor, a three-day literature festival was held on the campus recently wherein some of these stories were read out.

‘Tales of Sanawar’ is a collection of anecdotal narrations spanning 175 glorious years of The Lawrence School’s existence. Almost 200 memoirs have been penned down by old Sanawarians of diverse vintage ranging from octogenarians to the youngest one in her twenties. Evidently, a mammoth endeavour has gone into producing this collector’s item that contains our childhood treasures.

The storytelling sessions, live streamed across the globe, opened up the floodgates of memory as we had a wonderful trip back in time. Experiences ranging from mundane routine events to anecdotes of naughtiness were given a spice of hilarity, keeping the audience of students, both past and present, amused. Nostalgia was evident reliving those days when life was simple and unclouded by experiences of loss, failure, judgement or rejection.

Our teachers, the enduring legends in the institution’s history having earned a fair measure of immortality, were remembered fondly in spite of the walloping or tongue lashing they gave for our juvenile mischief. There was laughter as well as moist eyes when their idiosyncrasies and little foibles were recounted. The stories also gave glimpses of our history during the ‘British Raj’ days and of challenges faced when this ‘little piece of England’ was Indianised.

To get a real feel of being ‘back to school’, the organisers had thoughtfully issued a ‘School Order’ giving out timings for Rouser Bugle, Chota Hazri (morning tea) and Lights Out, taking us back to the regimented school life. It was after ages that we sang the ‘Abide With Me’ hymn during the special assembly and that too flawlessly without the assembly song book handed to us for reference.

The famous ‘bun-sums’ (samosa smeared with chutney wrapped in bun) served during ‘milk breaks’ brought back our culinary memories of Kasauli. Chanting of Sanskrit prayer before meals in the central dining hall reminded us of those days of eternal hunger; the food however tasted much better than our times. Dancing on songs of the bygone era during socials revived romantic reminiscences of our adolescence days.

An inter-house quiz on the school’s heritage held alongside storytelling sessions rekindled the house spirit with present students cheering for the veterans of their respective house teams. “What does the future hold for legacy schools like ours,” was the theme for a panel discussion held on the last day.

Killexams : A Rare 1968 Shelby GT500 Mustang Fastback's 54-Year Journey to Primetime

The year 1968 represented a high point for Shelby American. Under the leadership of Carroll Shelby, in six years the company had risen from practically nothing to one of the world's premier limited-production, high-performance manufacturers. Fifty-four years later, the 1968 Shelby GT500 is one of the most coveted collector cars from the muscle car era, and this Candy Apple Red fastback example will be up for bids at the Mecum Harrisburg auction, July 27-30, 2022, as lot number S113. It will surely prove to be a spectacle when it crosses the auction block on Saturday, July 30.

Knowledgeable Ford collectors will be paying close attention to this 1968 Shelby GT500 as it rolls in front of the hammer in Harrisburg. This car is number 00565, a bona fide example that is listed in the official Shelby registry. This matters because, unlike other rare muscle cars, each Shelby can be easily Tested for authenticity due to excellent record-keeping over the years by Ford and Shelby. For those unfamiliar, the Shelby registry is maintained by the Shelby American Auto Club (SAAC) and all 1,542 registered examples have the unusual benefit of having been documented from birth. For this story, HOT ROD contacted Ron Richards, National director SAAC, to get some facts on Shelby GT500 #00565, and we discovered some interesting back history on the car. But first, some Shelby background.

Shelby Rising

After an illustrious driving career crowned by a win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959, Carroll Shelby began transitioning to car building for health reasons. Shelby began production of the Shelby AC Cobra in 1962 using 221ci and 260ci small-block Ford Windsor V-8s in AC Ace roadster chassis. Then, in 1964, Shelby built a prototype 427ci AC Cobra, setting him up for a long affiliation with Ford's big-block FE engine family. Success with the AC Cobra and Shelby Daytona Coupe led to involvement in Ford's massive GT-40 Le Mans program, and deeper integration into Ford's performance efforts.

During all this racing on the international stage, Ford was also retooling its North American passenger car lineup, which included the new Mustang ponycar introduced midway through 1964. Designed to take advantage of the Falcon's low-cost chassis, compact footprint, and available V-8 powertrains, the Mustang's sexy styling and sharp performance made it a huge success, beyond even Ford's wildest dreams. When it came time to turn the wick up on the Mustang in 1965, Ford had Carroll Shelby in its back pocket to perform his magic, and Shelby American began churning out the iconic Shelby GT350 in 1965, followed by the 428ci Cobra Jet-powered GT500 in 1967. The GT500 was built by Shelby American through the 1968 model year, before Ford took over production of all Shelby models in 1969.

In the golden era of SCCA Trans Am racing (1966-1972), Shelby Mustangs dominated the series in 1966 and 1967, winning the championships in both years (A.J. Foyt in 1966 and Jerry Titus in 1967). Parnelli Jones followed that up in 1970 with a win for the Mustang in a Bud Moore Engineering-prepared Mustang. Like many kids growing up in the era, your author had an HO-scale Aurora slot car racetrack—a kit that featured Shelby Mustang GT350s on the box. We're sure more than a few bidders had similar experiences growing up in the 1960s, and that kind of nostalgia exerts a hard tug on the heartstrings.

Heart of the Beast: 428ci Cobra Jet Big-Block

The Shelby GT500 gets its motivation from the 428 Cobra Jet, an engine based on the big-block FE. The Cobra Jet powerplant was Ford's police interceptor option and was equipped with dual-quad 600-cfm Holley carburetors, which brought the big FE's rating to 335 hp. genuine output, however, was closer to 400 hp, making the lightweight Shelby GT500 one of the quickest Fords of the era. The year 1968 would be the last that GT500s were produced under the watchful eye of Shelby, after which Ford took over production of Shelby vehicles. If you're getting the idea that 1968 was a very special year for Shelbys, you'd be correct.

The background information on car #00565 that SAAC's Richards provided to HOT ROD is not readily available to just anyone; only Tested Shelby owners can access VIN numbers from Shelby sequence numbers, a procedure that allows verification while preventing fakes from being easily cloned. Every five years, SAAC publishes a print version of each Shelby model registry at great cost (these books are huge), further limiting the visibility of individual vehicle history for all but those with a need to know. As we approach the sale of Shelby GT500 #00565 at Mecum Harrisburg, we thought it was important for potential buyers and viewers to know the details, and SAAC agreed.

1968 Shelby GT500 Production Facts and Figures

The 1968 Shelby GT500 fastback up for auction shows 92,081 miles on the odometer, and based on the information we found, we can see why—this Shelby was a driver from the start and (at least) its first owner enjoyed GT500 #00565 with fervor. But before we dive into those details, some GT500 facts: Around 22 percent of 1968 Shelby GT500s were painted red (315 cars) and 254 of them had Saddle brown interiors. (Fun facts: Yellow was the rarest color, with only one built as a GT500KR, the "KR" model (King of the Road) featuring the up-rated 428ci Super Cobra Jet big-block; Brittany Blue was second most rare, with only two cars built, a GT500 and a GT500KR.) Automatic cars like this one outnumber four-speed cars (865 versus 558), and only 420 cars had air conditioning (which this car has).

What's a 1968 Shelby GT500 Worth?

Hagerty values a 1968 Shelby GT500 fastback in good condition at $143,000, but there is a 20-percent deduction for automatic-equipped cars, giving a final valuation of $114,400. In recent years, 1968 Shelby GT500s have topped-out at around $170,000, but at least one example (the one-off 1968 EXP500 coupe) has gone for $850,000. Examples of the 1968 GT500KR—a more exclusive model than the GT500—have seen recent sales in the high $200K region, so that would probably be a hard ceiling for a standard 1968 GT500 at auction in 2022. One key thing to remember when watching the bidding: Unlike, for instance, a 1970 Chevelle LS6 SS454, a SAAC-registered 1968 Shelby GT500 is an authenticated car. Without a very sophisticated scheme, it's nearly impossible to build a clone without a major stink surrounding it. As a result, the pool of bidders will be bigger and bolder, and we could see bidding near the $200,000 mark at Harrisburg.

Shelby GT500 #00565 History

Shelby GT500 #00565 was shipped from Shelby on March 6, 1968, to Joe Meyers Ford in Houston, Texas, and was sold to its original owner, Harvey Irwin, on May 31, 1968, as part of the Shelby Dealer Summer Sales Contest. It had an MSRP of $5,269.53. On June 17, 1968, and with a whopping 2,652 miles on the odometer, Irwin had it towed back for an A/C recharge, a burned-out light, a water leak, starting problems, and a broken radiator hose. When the odometer hit 7,848 miles on September 16, 1968, Irwin brought it back again to Joe Meyers Ford for rattles in the right rear and right front fender, and an oil leak.

Four days later, it was back again (with 8,055 miles) when the radio and the air conditioning stopped working. Then, on October 16, 1968, at 9,453 miles, the glovebox was repaired. (It still looks a little tweaked in the photos.) Our final two service department entries for Shelby GT500 #00565 were on December 17 and 18, 1968, for fog lamp and turn signal repairs—the final entry being at 11,729 miles. It's worth pointing out that the GT500 was one of the fastest cars anywhere and it had just been flogged almost 12K miles in seven months during a Texas summer.

Shelby GT500 #00565 Last Spotted …

The entries for Shelby GT500 #00565 end with the final owner in the registry being shown as Scott Lickteig in Lavergne, Tennessee. (The car appears to be registered in the state of Georgia now.) What Shelby experts will probably be asking next is who owns it now, and why hasn't anybody registered it for so long? "We have 54 years of not knowing what happened," says SAAC's Ron Richards of car #00565, adding that there's no cost to register to be listed in the Shelby registry. (For registering, contact Since Scott Lickteig's ownership, the trail has gone cold, with one exception: Our research shows that this Shelby was also offered at auction here during the 2021 Spring Carlisle Auction but was not sold.
