Cobra shop

Way back, we used to hang out at the Cobra shop in Venice Ca.....(now that area is called Marina Del Rey), west of Lincoln, about a mile south of Washington Blvd.... Occasionally we would see Mr Shelby and he always had a "Hi boys", or at least a smile..... The workers there were always cool as long as we stayed out of the way... When the first Mustangs showed up, mid 63 I think, things got a little tighter and the doors were closed more than they were open because the Mustangs were kind of a secret and not at the dealers yet.... Those SBF Cobras were real screamers, and the 427FEs were off the charts. I remember one FE, an injected 427, that you could "feel" before you heard it coming....

A true legend in motorsports, Carroll Shelby was one of a kind....RIP
Ray
