    Camilo Pardo, lead designer of the 2005-06 Ford GT, painted this cool poster for Shelby American's 50th anniversary.



    A nice painting by Kenny Youngblood, promoting the special 50th anniversary edition continuation Cobras.

    1969 NASCAR Cobra, 428SCJ engine bored .065 and sonic tested and balanced and blue printed.
    There are some great pictures in this thread and I wish I could draw like these people. This has become one of my favorite threads as I really like the art and would like to have a big picture of my Cobra drawn on the back wall of my garage.

    AC Cars Ltd. featured this lovely illustration on the cover its 1969 sales brochure.


    Dan Gurney is at the wheel of CSX2323 at the Targa Florio in this watercolour painting by Steve Jones.


    Guillermo Forchino produced this funky Cobra sculpture.




    Another amusing Cobra sculpture, this one by Red Nose Studios.

    Nice drawing by Loopydave of Anne Francis as TV detective, Honey West, who drove CSX2540 in the show. The actual car just came up for sale and was sold in the last month.

    This 1978 cartoon sketch is somehow linked to Bill Cosby's Supersnake. Sundude, do you possibly know how? I will update post when/if I find out more...

    Sure do. That's one of the Cosby's hilarious lines from his comedy album, 200mph, which all about his brief ownership experience with a twin-Paxton 427 Cobra (CSX3303). Have a listen (jump ahead to 4:20 if you don't want to hear it all):
