The underside of this thing kinda reminds of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried a half-century ago and unearthed in '07 out in Tulsa.

So 3 original 1967's left Lax, but a better question is currently how many owners now wrongly claim that their cars came with a 427 engine instead?  Quite a few I suspect unfortunately.  This is what makes the SAAC Registry and even The Shelby Research Group on Facebook so important.  It keeps people honest

This is a great video from a few years ago.  Jim Cowden's aluminum bodied GT40 replica.  Sweet.

Apologies if it's been posted before.

Dear Kent,

Welcome to America!  What dates to be plan to be here in the states?  Will you be traveling around North Carolina or just be staying in Wilmington?  If you decide to take a trip to Charlotte, a visit to the Mustang Owner's Museum would be worth your time.  I'm based out of Chapel Hill, but would love to meet up with you and talk Shelbys if at all possible.  My email is:  Bubbletime1@gmail.com

Yes, we all do.
Always a somber time seeing all the wonderful pics posted of the GT350 Tours he anchored.
We just did our 3rd annual 'Toast to Woody' last month at our old Watering Hole.... Kristopher's in Matthews.
Hard to believe it's been 3-years.... We Face-Timed his daughter Noel and everyone got to visit.

So good to hear that Mark.

The Lounge / Re: Checkered Flag Henry " Hank " Williams
« on: December 26, 2023, 07:38:21 PM »
Part of the 'Greatest Generation'.  God Bless him for his service.  Here is a great article on the Gentleman's Racer site about him and his amazing Cobra:

https://www.thegentlemanracer.com/2012/09/the-hank-williams-cobra.html

The Hank Williams Cobra

It is a rare sight to see an original Cobra on the road, even at car shows many of the "Cobras" are simply replicas, but rarer still is finding an original car, with the original owner. A plaque on the windshield reads "History-Making Cobra" and that statement is true in more ways than one. Hank Williams moved to Southern California in 1964, an aspiring racing driver piloting an Austin Healey 3000, but the world of sports car racing was moving towards bigger engines and faster lap times and the old Healey was not going to cut it much longer. The new Cobra as being raced at Riverside International Raceway not far from Hanks home in Fontana, and less than a year after seeing a Cobra on the track, he was at the dealership purchasing his car.

But it was not as simple as that, the dealership that had sold Hank the car did not really own it, it was on loan from another dealer as a display item, when he returned to pick the car up the next day it had gone back to the dealer in Pomona that had loaned out the car. After about two weeks of run around and red tape he threatened to sue, the next day the car magically appeared.

Hank was soon hitting the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) racing events in Southern, California. For 10 years the hank and his machine competed in 394 events and took home 35 trophies, including a plaque that commemorated his drive as the first African-American to drive around Indianapolis Speedway.

The car is almost 100% original, having had minor race damage repaired over the years, even the Hard Top was a factory Shelby option, and a rare one at that. And that grey-blue paint... it is some kind of a mistake, the car was supposed to be light blue, but three cars left the factory with this unique color. Hank guessed that they just had a little silver and a little blue so they mixed them and painted the car.

Hank is now 72 years old and has owned the car for nearly 50 years, look for him at events, he is still active with the Shelby clubs and attends several shows a year.

Hey Brian since you brought this topic up....would you know who has owned the most cobras  ?

Asking for a friend......

You'd have to ask Ned or one of our other Cobra Gurus.
