WoW! - 40 Shelby Cobras Racing (Replicas + 1 Original)
More than 40 Factory Five Racing "Shelby Cobra" and "Shelby Daytona Coupe" replicas / kit cars invaded the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to tear up the race track in late 2004.
The event entitled; Western Cobra Round-up was organized by members of the local club with cars coming from Arizona, Utah, California and from a number of other surrounding states.
The Shelby American Factory was literally right down the street and it was no surprise to see an original Shelby Cobra (canary yellow #33) arrive and race in style.
The race course was also located very close to the Nevada Airforce base and we were buzzed by a number of F16, F18s and even a couple of A10 Warthogs.
Levi and Roush Racing were also both represented as was Dave Smith, President of Factory Five Racing who spoke at the closing banquet later in the evening.
Thanks to the organizers.
Cobras thundering through Manhattan
Here is some video that my wife shot as we and about forty other Cobra's
departed from the annual meeting of the Columbus Circle Cobra Club.With
about forty Cobra's thundering through Manhattan on a Sunday Morning
setting of car alarms and entertaining spectators on the streets it was
quite a bit of fun...until the NYPD caught up with us.Filmed from the
cockpit of my 289 Aurora Cobra slabside roadster.

Carroll Shelby Goes Racing
Ford provided Carroll Shelby with an engine for his start up sports car
company and AC supplied the bodies. Shelby hired a bunch of hot rod
builders in California and they created the Cobra.
Soon Ford turned to Shelby to beef up the Mustang and turn it into a Corvette
beater. The GT 350 was born.
But there was more. Henry Ford II had tried to buy Ferrari and was
spurned. Not one who was used to losing he decided to beat Enzo Ferrari on
the track. After Ford's first forays stalled they turned to Shelby to beef
up the GT 40s and take on Ferrari.
Pete Brock, Ken Miles and Dan Gurney put the cars through their paces.
Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.

Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe - Lovely Exhaust Sounds!
This video shows an extremely rare and original 1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra
Coupe, only six Daytona original coupes were ever built between 1964 and
1965. In 2009 a Daytona Coupe (chassisnumber CSX2601) was sold for

incredible to see one being driven very fast around track!

Quick Drive- 1967 427 Shelby Cobra Replica
I was allowed to borrow a 1967 427 Shelby Cobra Replica. There are few
cars in the world that are scarier. Since it wasn't mine and I didn't want
to buy it, I didn't even risk doing the burnouts. It was interesting to
experience such an iconic car, which so much trepidation. Hope you enjoy
P.S. This car is for sale. Send me a message if you're interested.
