Hmmm... I've heard several times about the Luggage and Spare Tire compartments on the GT40s, but not the Cobra?
Here's a photo that shows the "regulation sized" compartments pretty well on a Mk2

The wait is absolutely killing me.  I'm dying...I hope I live long enough to see it.  Let's see, how many days do I have to survive to make it.....

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

here's a pic of CSX2345 at the Shelby American Collection with the FIA dimples in the trunk lid.

The set of four pics is from the Club Cobra site.

That's fairly typical regarding title changes. My dad worked on Sylvester Stalone's movie "Driven" when it was filming in Toronto and he said the movie title at that point was called "Champs" and he wore an onset baseball cap that had "Champs" written on it. He said they might call it "Driven" instead. I think they were floating a third name at the time. He worked on the lighting scenes for the nighttime driving in downtown Toronto up in a crane. He never watched the movie but said he didn't think much of it anyway.

Anyone able to Photoshop that Enzo photo into a Shelby Cobra or Shelby Mustang. That would be classic.
