    Cool Cobra related 'Oldies' photos

    I'm not exactly sure what defines a "Cobra related 'Oldies' photo" in today’s terms, but I have a bunch which I regard as coming from yester-year. Maybe, to a time in the 60's and 70's, when life was simpler, when men smoked unfiltered cigarettes, oiled their hair back, had long bushy sideburns, wore bell bottom pants, and when digital cameras and computers were things that only existed in sci-fi movies.

    Maybe you might have a few hidden somewhere to share… x4e

    Gian,

    Great pictures and thread. I have some but they are in books and no way can I get the book open wide enough to get them on the scanner. The books I bought new way back and they are still like new and I don't want to destroy them. There is one of the very first pictures of a Cobra that was taken at a near by golf course with Shelby's secretary standing by it and they had used steel wool to polish it. Also I have one of Steve McQueen outside Shelby's standing on the sidewalk looking at his Cobra. Great thread and I look forward to the old pictures that I am sure will be forth coming.

    The car as it is depicted here, was the 'mule' for the Alan Mann Racing/Shelby American Team and just participated in practice in the 1000km 1965 at the Nuerburgring. Picture show Bob Bondurant at the wheel.
