Unnumbered Cam Failure

(no VIN & not the owner)
New 8/5/05

Hello, my name is Paul McCoy I live in Augusta GA. I own a1997 SHO with 48k miles silver, I just found out about your website and have been reading about the camshaft problem, I purchased my SHO 3 months ago and I thought I was getting a unique automobile I called FPS in Atlanta and have an appointment to have my cams welded next week. I certainly don't want to throw 6k bucks down the drain. I am an old mustang man myself but when I saw this car I had to have it. It had been setting about a year as the previous owner died of cancer. It is in extremely good condition and looks as if it had been garaged. I was puzzled that the car had no mufflers on it . it is the sweetest sounding v8 I have ever heard. Just for your info the VIN is 1falp54n8va159514. I was very pleased to find out there is a web site dedicated to this car. My e-mail address is nanapoppop2019@aol.com. phone (deleted) just as a tidbit , last week I was having new tires put on it, the tires had dry rotted, there was a twin to my car setting in the lot so I went to check it out, it had 91k miles on it I looked at the exhaust and it had no mufflers on it ,just like mine, is this factory? The dash pad was coming undone over the gauges, just like mine. ( I have fixed mine with epoxy) I asked the mechanic what was wrong with it and he told me the cam was bad. Its still setting there, for weeks now. Thank you for your website.
