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.

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.

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

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
$7.25million US dollars, with such a ridiculous value it's even more
incredible to see one being driven very fast around track!

Birth of an FFR roadster
It took us 10 months to get from a bunch of boxes to this point. It has a
homebuilt 347 which put 401 hp and 385 ft-lbs to the rollers and is proving
to be a really fun car!
My girlfriend takes my 1965 (Factory Five MKIII replica) Shelby Cobra out for a drive.
Sorry about the sound in this video. I mounted the GoPro to the roll bar
but I think it was vibrating or something. She did pretty well driving the
Cobra... minus a couple grinds haha. The Cobra is a bit tempermental and
not really easy on you the first time you take her out. Proud of my girl...
both of them. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor
