    Three different cars. If I had to guess, #1 is a reproduction, #2 is the real deal, #3 is the VIN# extension they had a few years back. Just a guess.

    I like the Shelby Cobra but for every Shelby Cobra out there, there are hundreds of reproductions that range from better than original to go Kart quality. I was just trying to figure out where those three cars lie.

    Exactly. A guy down the street has a kit. Looks badass though.


    Would love to have one.

    I went to the Vegas Car Show once and Carroll Shelby was there with about 15 of those bad boys.

    What a treat. That old man was bad to the bone.

    half of these are kit cars you can buy for cheap ..
    if I were to have a real one, in my garage it would keep.

    Rate a solid 10.

    I may do a Factory Five kit in a few years. Normally I call "sacrilege" when they don't use Ford power plants (typical SBC blah) in 'em but I gots the urge to go with a Buick GN V6 and twin turbos.
