Still My Favorite Car
Shelby Cobra 427

I owned one of these in British racing green back during the sixties. I had to sell it since I could not afford the speeding tickets. Sure wish I still had it. What an amazing machine! Zero to sixty in four seconds. Zero to a hundred and back to a complete stop in twelve seconds.

It was awesome.

Such a shame that you had to give up such a gorgeous car! I’d definitely be very jealous if I saw you driving down my road in that! Zero to sixty in four seconds flat is VERY fast though, I’m sure I’d have to hold on to my hats if I saw you racing down the blacktop and headed my way!

There’s something about the classic look of this car that I just love. I don’t know why, but it reminds me of Austin Powers’ Shaguar. I’d probably switch the wheels with slightly thinner ones though, maybe with 20” x 7” wheels. I’d love to see this in black and red too.
