flame suit on now and 123...........
Do you want a replica or do you want a kit car? If you want a replica then the plan is pretty clear. If you just want a kit car, then you can make excuses like that and probably even add more to it.....”I heard Shelby was joking around with his employees one day and talked about putting curb feelers on the Cobra, so that gives me an excuse. I also heard that he approached VW about a power plant so a VW engine is totally viable...”

He may have approached Chrysler, GM, or whoever else with the plan to power his Cobra, but you know what.....he ended up with Ford.

I agree that it’s our prerogative to make our car look the way we want, but that’s when you end up with kit cars....Pontiac Fieros made to look like Ferrari’s, etc. Pretty soon you end up with a conglomerate mess that doesn’t even resemble a Cobra except for the fact that it has 4 wheels and a door.
