    1969 NASCAR Cobra, 428SCJ engine bored .065 and sonic tested and balanced and blue printed.

    New Shelby Cobra

    I am sure that it is better than the older ones but I really don't care much for the upgraded styling.

    I was going to pass on commenting until I turned up the volume and the soundtrack came on. Jeeez - makes you want to go out and dance in the wildflowers in the field.

    It's damn hard to improve on perfection.

    And what we have here is a failed attempt.

    I don't think I've seen a new "reimagined" cobra that has looked good. And the soundtrack on this is ridiculous.

    I don't care for the styling of either end, but I like the idea of the flip front end. All kind of moot, there's about a 0% chance this will ever get built.

    Cycleguy55, I think you are being too generous.

    I believe there will be less than a "0% chance" it will ever get built.
