Default $25 and a dream...

I guess I'll be on the boat a little less... A local High School had a raffle for a FFR 1965 427 Shelby Cobra replica www.factoryfive.com . I won it.Interestinghow life comes full circle...back in the DAY (late 60s and early 70s), I road raced SCCA National races, with a Shelby GT-350. My passion was alway the Shelby 427 Cobra which I fell in love with in 1967. $7800 was a lot of money,then. Well, what goes around; comes around.

Nice withdrawal out of the luck bank! That is a sweeeeet car.

You wanna double your money??? I'll give you $50 for it and I'll even come pick it up! I'm free the week of the 4th.

Get some Kumos, put it on the track and race Factory Five. Or you could always do Driver Education Events. The closest thing to actual racing without creating insurance issues.

BTW- How many raffle tickets did they have sell?

Aw, the first gear on those babies is something else. The fastest I have ever been in a car was in a Cobra at a track in Savannah when I was a teenager (80's). It took all my energy to lean forward at 100+mph...and that is when the driver was shifting into 4th gear. I was wearing a helmet with a shield and the wind still made my eyes water.

Enjoy it and thanks for bringing back the memories.

VERY cool. Beautiful car!

You just motivated me to go a powerball ticket!

Well, your luck, and my boss walking by my office door.

If I had been able to fit my 6' 4" body into one of those I'd have one in the garage rather than the 65 vette convertible which is in there now.

Nice car! My all time favorite and I still drool everytime I see one on the road. ENJOY!!!!
