    Nomad, I think it was Seattle and then on to Nevada. I was more interested in the cars than where they were going so never asked them many questions about that.

    Carroll Shelby during his racing days.






    A VERY young Shelby practicing for future races...




    Still as determined many years later, putting the Cobra through its paces...




    John Edgar and Carroll Shelby, 1957. They grew up in Ohio and Texas, and formed their sports car racing alliance in California.

    Methinks those Cobras are too light for their class... ;-)

    Gian,

    That is a great picture and one that I haven't seen before. The only thing wrong with it is that the Cobras don't belong to me.

    Great pictures and I liked the sign that gave the prices. Get me two of them please. Also the Coupe needs a little touching up on the rear panel.

    Hey!

    What gives here?

    Those guys copied me!

    Black painted rollbar.

    No side pipes.

    Next time you see them they'll probably be sporting cowl induction scoops!

    How do they live with themselves?
