Indeed it is. We need to get the semi local guys together and make a trip there. I haven't been in close to a year, and I miss it. So much cool **** there.

It's an aluminum-bodied '62 Falcon with the 4-cam Ford Indy V8 stuffed under the hood.

Why would somebody do that to that poor engine. Put it in an AC Cobra or something like that.

Dude.. No. Just No.


That engine is probably rated around 425hp naturally aspirated. Assuming you could shoehorn that motor in an AC Cobra just what the **** are you going to do with it? ~2000 pounds and >600rwhp on a 90 inch wheelbase car..

A local guy has a 03 Cobra motor in his AC Replica which almost doesn't fit and gets no ******* traction. Ever. Don't get me wrong, its some sweet **** anyway, but still..




That one belongs to a friend of mine. "Mostly stock.." Only has a Ford 357 with a mild cam and Edelbrock EFI setup. First gear is useless, Second gear is mostly useless. Only car I've ever been in and nearly **** my pants while in fear for my life. The wheels are teh sex...

That's a good point.

You ever hear about Carroll Shelby's personal dual-supercharged 427 Cobra? It apparently makes 800 horsepower and he built it in 1966. I think Bill Cosby had one just like it, or similar to it for a while before deciding it was too much and selling it. I think If I built a Cobra replica, I'd probably just want a 302 built to rev, something unique without so much power that it would make the car simi-useless.

Edit:

Yep, Cosby had one too:

Quote:
In 1967, Bill Cosby bought a Shelby Cobra Super Snake CSX 3303 from his friend, company founder Carroll Shelby. The CSX 3303 was one of two Super Snakes built, which is a modified 1965 Cobra Competition roadster retained by Shelby American as a PR car and then modified with the addition of two superchargers and a Ford C-6 automatic gearbox.[2] Of the two cars built, one was retained by Shelby and the other was sold to Cosby. The album title, 200 M.P.H., refers to the car's top speed, which unnerved Cosby so much that he only drove it once before returning it. Shelby American sold it to S and C Motors in San Francisco, who then sold it to their customer, Tony Maxey. Maxey destroyed the CSX 3303 by driving over a cliff and into the Pacific Ocean. Maxey himself died a few days later. Brian Angliss purchased the vehicle and subsequently restored it. He plans to auction the car off.[2]

While the majority of Cosby's Warner Bros. standup albums were regularly re-released on LP, and eventually issued on CD in April 1998, 200 M.P.H. was not reissued on vinyl (although it was available on cassette in the '80s), and did not see a CD release until 2005, mainly due to controversy over the main sketch's punchline, where Cosby returns the car and suggests that it be given to former Alabama governor and pro-segregationist George Wallace, who was running for President as a third party candidate at the time. In a recent late-night talk show appearance, Cosby briefly re-told this story and said that he had heard that Jimmy Webb (of "MacArthur Park" fame) eventually ended up with his Cobra.
