Classic Automotive Pr0ns - Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe

Carroll Shelby, a man held as a legend in his circle, designed a race car based on the AC Cobra so they could go at Ferrari in the GT coupe racing class.
Only 6 were built between 1964 and 65, then a fuck ton of replicas and kit cars in the 45 years since. I am not mad at that, though. Carroll Shelby would be reassigned to another legendary race car, the Ford GT40 at that time.

The fact that there were only "officially" 6 of these cars likely has everything in the world to do with the fact that the most original-looking ones you will see are blue, and that the other colors appear more to be newer kit cars, or replicas if you will.
Back when I was young and dumb, and had money, I'd dreamed of getting a kit car and stuffing a current (mid-late 90s through about 2001ish) engine into it and wheeling it. Alas, the real world got in the way and I sharpened my skills with the keyboard instead, hopefully I can work my way back to making the dream happen someday. The images will leave it quite obvious which ones are which to anyone with even a little bit of sense, even if they don't particularly care.
