http://www.kitcarconnection.com - James Martell takes his Shelby Cobra replica for a cruise.
I decided to post this video for all the viewers of my other video who complained about the engine being drowned out by the music. They have a point. The engine noise of a Cobra with the famous sidepipes is music enough to a car enthusiast.
If you are looking to hear a the roar of the engine this is your video.
The car in the video was built in 2004 in Calgary, Alberta by Peter Jacobsen using car a Mk2 Roadster kit from Factory Factory Racing. The car is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in Calgary, Alberta.

As an avid fan, he owns a Shelby Cobra kit car that he drives in his leisure time. In his spare time he attends car shows, works on his website, and spends time with his family.
The video was filmed in Surrey BC Canada.
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

Shelby Cobra - 0 to 130 in seconds!
In case you are wondering about the erratic shifting... My Tremmec 600
tranny had bad synchros that had to be rev up before gear would fall into
place. That's why you don't see smooth, power-shifting. If was later fixed
and the car sold. Wished I would have done more vids, specially when the
backfire flames came out of the sidepipes on rev down.
No NOS. No octane Booster. Regular
pump gas. Pedal down 3/5 of the way. 130MPH in a few seconds!!
