  • The legendary Shelby Cobra - Video features an interview with the man who started it all, Carroll Shelby! Additional interviews with Cobra Daytona Coupe designer Peter Brock, legendary racer Dan Gurney and official Cobra photographer Dave Friedman.
    Racing exploits of legendary racers Dave MacDonald, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, Dan Gurney and Ken Miles are discussed in this video...enjoy. Ironically the video starts with a Dave MacDonald driven Corvette Stingray leading a Cobra driven by Billy Krause, this was at Riverside Raceway and was the first ever race for both of these iconic American sports cars. Shelby would raid the Chevrolet camp after this race and hire Dave MacDonald as Cobra's new #1 driver. MacDonald went on to score the first-ever victories for all of Carroll Shelby's Cobras - the Cobra Roadster, King Cobra, King Cobra Lang-Cooper and the Daytona Cobra Coupe. Dave MacDonald lost his life in a fiery crash in the 1964 Indianpolis 500.

    Ford + Shelby= Unbeatable. 6 hours of 300+ degree engine temp at 6 or 7,000 Rip'ms.

    Big time! He just couldn't take his beat down like a man. He awakened a sleeping giant & couldn't face it!

      No, sorry, wrong. He rightly saw a way to manipulate the results as he had been permitted to do for long before Shelby came along and did so, in the same way a certain tire company and a certain automotive manufacturer manipulated streetcar companies in America to eliminate them and bring in buses. Golden rule; got the gold? Make the rules. Hasn't changed, either; just a few years ago it was revealed that within the FIA Ferrari has and has had a veto vote over virtually every rule change since the 1970's. Besides, Enzo was playing the long game, since he wasn't an American - so where are the Cobra showrooms today? Yeah, that's what I thought. I can find you a Ferrari showroom, though.
