    • Carroll Shelby: Driven to Win
      Carrol Shelby. One of the greatest car builders of all time shoved a 289 Ford V8into the British AC Bristol, creating the most feared muscle car of all time. But when he decided to up the ante, he pulled out all the stops and jammed Ford's mighty 427 BB V8 into the Cobra, creating a 2500lb road rocket. Because so few of these cars were built, people wanted to get their hands on them, but they couldn't find any. And even if they did, they couldn't afford its $500,000 price tag. So someone had the great idea of building Kit Car Cobras - imitations that you can build in your ery own garage from scratch. They may look just as good as the original, but you know they aren't. But the fact that they only cost $50,000 to build seems to impress most Cobra lovers. And if it don't, then you're probably rich enough to afford the real thing anyways. Nowadays the Cobra is the most copied car in existance.moreless
