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

Donuts in a 1966 Cobra - /BIG MUSCLE
It's a 1966 Shelby Cobra replica that was built by a Father and his two
sons more than 10 years ago. It's faded fiberglass shell is chipped and
spider-webbed. The stainless trim is pitted and tarnished and the wheels
are coated in a thick layer of brake dust. The carpet is also coming up and
every now and then it blows flames from its side-pipes due to it running a
little rich. Some may think these are problems. Me personally - I think
it's one of the coolest cars I've ever driven. This episode of "Big Muscle"
is about the drive, those project cars that we work on, and the
exhilaration we get when we wring them out for the first time on the open
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

Top 10 worst car replicas
Watch part 2 with even worst replicas!!! http://youtu.be/w17rHxOX0WA
This is a collection of the worst I have seen so far. I have order them not
just for the lack of craftsmanship and similarity, but also on
aspirationality and "common sense". Ohh, and I personally hate Honda
Civics, lol. I hope iof you don´t laugh at the cars, you would in the
cover that I used in the background.
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 Cobra LOUD start and acceleration!!
I spot this vicious facroty 5 shelby cobra in Wrentham, MA. the owner was
really cool, and as you can see from the video, offered me a ride in his
beast of a car! i love the way this V8 gurgles when he starts up, then how
it backfires after he accelerates down that straight! Comment, rate, and

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.
