Nice. That's probably not a real Cobra though. I can't see anyone in their right mind driving one on public roads.

yeah, i can't say if it is real or not. ive seen this car before.

when the roof was off, it was parked at a grocery store (lol), and the dash was signed by Carol Shelby.

but who knows, maybe that's replicated as well?

...thanks for the comments though!

Well done kit cars are going for pretty good prices as well these days. It wouldn't be crazy for Shelby to sign a kit car. If this guy left it in a parking lot unattended then it definitely isn't real. Nice panning shots though. Do you just hang out by the highway? I was thinking about doing this just to get some practice.

the cobra looks like a kit car or replica.


Equipment: Canon PowerShot A650IS (semi retired) and Canon Powershot G10 (primary) and Rebel XT 350D w/18-55mm kit lens and Quanterey 18-200mm-- www.youtube.com/alexan​der1485 (external link) (has links to some of my pictures on the main page)

About everyone has something signed by Shelby. He does a lot of glove box doors.

I worked for him 25 years ago at Chrysler. Heck of a nice guy. Still remembers me too (saw him last year).......

Hope he lives to be 125.

His place at Las Vegas MotorSpeedway is pretty darn impressive.

Good shots.

I've seen some here that he's signed.

yeah, basically, i ride my bike about 10mins to the highway, chill on this little grass hill by an office building and practice panning. i think cuz summer just kicked in big time here in toronto, all the nice cars are coming out. or maybe just my area? dunno, but i been getting very lucky with the cars i see.

but if you think about it, if you sit for an hour at a busy road, in a nice-ish area, you are BOUND to see a few nice cars.... :)

thanks everyone else for the comments!
