1965 Shelby Cobra 289 FIA
The Shelby Cobra needs little introduction as it is easily one of the most recognizable and most copied sports cars of all time. The 289 "FIA" was built by Shelby American to beat Ferrari at it's own game in the FIA World GT Championship.

Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion 2011 Sunday
Todd Westbrook gets a small amount of footage of some nice Shelby Cobras and a beautiful Ferrari 250 SWB. I also had a chance to meet Brian Johnson from AC/DC and have some footage of him in conversation with another event participant.

Shelby Cobras in the Paddock at Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion 2012
Shelby Cobras in the paddock and the pit lane display at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion on August 18, 2012. At the end of the day, the most significant cars were invited to the display on pit lane. They included the first cobra (first blue one as they lined up), CSX 2000, that debuted at the 1962 New York Auto show. Carroll Shelby insisted on leaving the seats and the interior in its ragged original condition. The gold Cobra CSX 3047 with a 427 engine has not been fully restored and was a favorite of many people. It is in the original Hertz gold paint and a little rugged but interesting. Road & Track magazine included it in their top 10 paddock finds for this event. Car number 95 is CSX 2468 a 1964 Cobra 289. Car number 66, CSX 2603, was a coupe built in the 1990's with Shelby's permission in New Zealand. It's nice to see someone using a little brute force to attach a wheel instead of a pneumatic wrench.

Penn Brothers 427 Cobra
Eight-minute promo from the full-length video available through Jim Amos' Bee On Video. This video documentary tells the story of how The Penn Brothers bought a brand new 1967 427 Shelby Cobra and turned it into a drag race vehicle. The car stopped racing in 1976 and it has been sitting in a garage ever since. If you are a fan of the Shelby Cobra cars you will find this story very interesting. www.beeonvideo.com
