Bill Cosby 200MPH: In a Shelby Cobra
Bill Cosby bumped into Carroll Shelby one day, and Carroll told him he was
an American and needed an American car. Bill said his Ferrari would do 180,
So Carroll built him a Special Cobra that would do 200 MPH. It scared him
so bad he returned the car to Shelby!
Ultimate Autos- Cobra
Like a coiled snake, this car scared the world's racing elite and made
Carrol Shelby a household name. After becoming the second American driver
to win at LeMans, Shelby's failing heart forced him out of racing in 1959;
but that didn't stop him from looking for a way to stay in the sport. The
result was the fastest production car ever produced.
1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years
