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.

I thought you might like a look at this awesome Shelby Cobra CSX4891. This
car was built by Shelby American and is about as true to the original as
you'll find...except even more powerful. This car is powered by a 575 HP
Side-Oiler Ford V8, backed by a Toploader four-speed, and a Dana 44 rear.
It even has the true Halibrand pin drive knockoff wheels, with Goodyear
Racing Tires. As you can see in the video, this car is amazingly quick.
It's hard to imagine ever having more fun in an automobile. I hope you
find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Shelby Cobra - Way Too Much Fun!
Go to: http://www.kitcarconnection.com - I spotted my first Shelby Cobra
427 S/C back in the summer of 1979. I knew INSTANTLY that one day I had to
have one of these cars. I have now enjoyed mine since 2005 and she is way
more fun than I ever would have expected.
The car is a Factory Five Racing MkII Roadster and was hand-built in
Calgary, Alberta throughout 2004 and delivered to my driveway January 2005.
The car is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in
I based the *look* of the Cobra replicar on Allen English's car in
Portland, Oregon. That car was unfortunately wrecked in a crash in the
summer of in 2008. Not too worry, he's okay and now driving a beautiful
blue CAV GT40 (aka Ford GT 40 replica).
This video was captured by my son Justin as we cruised around South Surrey
and White Rock, BC Canada. It was produced for me as a gift by a good
friend Phil Watkins.
If you're a fan of Shelby, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Lotus, or anyone of dozens
of amazing cars, but find them a little out of reach financially, consider
