Speaking of Mustangs:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannonball_Run_Challenge

They are still at this, setting new records for Covid-19 Cannonballs.
That is one rental I wouldn't want to buy.
For every hour loafing at 70 MPH, plan on one at 146.

I wonder if this guy ever heard of Pierre Levegh.

Lots of people died on racetracks, nobody had been hurt and no serious accidents on a Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial trophy Dash.

Bruce: My point was fatigue. Going 140 mph on public highways is dangerous enough without the perils of sleep deprivation we have all experienced.
In 1955 Pierre Levegh decided to drive the whole 24 hours of Le Mans by himself (no co-driver) and it contributed to 80+ deaths and 100+ injuries. They prohibited solo runs after that.
I
don't know how it is certain that there have no wrecks, injuries or even deaths with the current apparent increase in current attempts.

Driving at 140 or more doesn't make you sleepy, quite the contrary. Most attempts have three people in the car so they can switch off driving and sleeping yet none to date have been able to sleep. They keep amused with stuff like short wave radios or long distance infrared spotter-scopes.
Either the last record breaker or the one before him had over twenty spotters across the country calling in traffic, weather, and patrol changes.
The cars are prepared with good brakes, pee bottles, and at least V tires.
I remember one attempt they left the Red Ball garage and almost immediately hit a traffic jam in NJ. After 20 minutes the trip was cancelled, no reason to continue. I never did find out what caused the traffic jam, maybe Christy.

We know because there are people keeping track of the attempts.
It makes no sense to do it if you won't get recognition for it.
In order to get recognition certain people have to be made aware in advance.

I think the '18 and '37 are legit, but the '40 on up have 4 doors so probably built from flower cars or sedans.

Say...

Where would you take your convertible to have the fabric portion of your top worked on?

Upholsterer? Vinyl top guy?

I'm coming unglued. Kinda.

I think most car upholstery shops do soft tops too, at least up this way.

If your Google automobile convertible tops it should point out some shops in your area. A feature that drives me nuts most of the time.

Buick Riviera concept show cars. The transition from concept to production lost the dip at the rear of the door, and the styling boss was unhappy. So they built three Silver Arrow concepts trying to push the vision but the bean counters won in the end.
