I will say, this is hands down the best overview of the big block Cobra's! One very minor addition, it was Shelby's East coast distributor, Charles Beidler who came up with the Semi Competition S/C designation. Yes, all the cars that became S/Cs, were left outside, unpainted and unloved! I will bet, most replica Cobra owners, think all big blocks were S/C cars, and were instant collectables. Cheers, Dennis

If you look at his website it’s astounding how many Shelby cars (Cobras, Daytonas and Mustangs) have passed through his hands.

LMC does a top notch work, Ryan does a fabulous job with Cobras and GT40's.
With greats Bill Kemper, David Wagner and Geoff Howard all slowing down Ryan is really one of the best of the best with these cars in today's talent pool.

LMC are top notch folks, top quality and you'll get what is advertised.

Wow Geoff is still doing this ? Last time I saw him was maybe 1976 with CSX 3147. I forget what we were doing at that point.

Nice video. Explains what the differences were of the big block cars. I think all the big blocks were and are very desirable.

I was working there in 1990/91 when he purchased his first Cobra. He was on the fence between that Cobra and a Ferrari Daytona. He asked us what he should do and we all said COBRA.
When he arrived with the car I remember like it was yesterday. He told us we could go for a ride if we wanted to drive it. I was the only one who was not scared to go and as soon as I jumped in Chris Simon joined me and we went for a drive around those country roads near the shop.
