    Interesting and the GT-40 ran well.

    Weight really matters.

    Couple comments.

    First they are comparing a race car to a full size production car. Considering that the Hellcat did not do that bad.

    The top speeds were funny. Both the GT40 and the Hellcat had top speeds in the 155 range. Based on how quickly the GT40 accelerated I have to assume that it was geared pretty low and was hitting the rev limiter.

    I liked the ass on the starter gal.

    And the Cobra was nice also.

    Looks like the only car that beat it was the Porsche.

    That is a fast Cobra for sure and he did a great job of building it.

    That was a good run and the car handled very well. Carl, you would really enjoy that but start easy and don't try to beat the guys that have been doing it for a while.

    That is Bruce Camburn's original 427 Cobra. I have watched him run several times at the Good Guy's show in Pleasanton, Ca. Very impressive car. Not even close to being a stock 427 Cobra though.

    I had to Google Nicole's picture, but I would give her a ride too.

    Not sure I would last 1:03 minutes or not, but I would give it a try.
