2010 Shelby Bash Little Falcon Running Down Big Block Cobra
This is a short clip of a little old lady's Falcon running down Morgan LeBlanc's Big Block CSX4000 Cobra at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the 2010 Shelby Bash. This refutes Morgan's description on the Ford Motor Co. Facebook page: "Great time in Vegas at the Shelby Bash! Here I am in my Shelby Cobra running away from a Falcon which typically found racing in vintage races." http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30763110&o=all&op=1&view=all&subj=22166130048&aid=-1&id=1151844753
Another great sight/sound from the historic races at Portland International Raceway (PIR) in 2005. This is a big block car, displacement unknown. It sounds badass! I love the license plate on this car: "Run Forrest Run"
