The SHELBY AMERICAN
Fall 2016 18
The red Cobra (CSX3302) is an atten-
tion-getter in this full-page ad for the
Classic Car Auction in Greensboro,
North Carolina. No surprise that
Young spotted it.
The end of the year is “calendar
time” and Hutchinson found this
one on www.somanicalendars.com
As you would expect, it has some
excellent photography and the
price tag is a very un-Cobra $14.99.
They’re advertised as “Shoes of
Prey” and we’re not surprised that
Jim Hutchinson was the one who
found these snakeskin shoes. In the
past he has exhibited what some
might call a “shoe fetish” but we
prefer to be a little more kind and
say only that he has more than a
passing interest in this subject. He
also noted that there might be
some enthusiasm for these by
cross-dressers in the club – not that
there’s anything wrong with that.
We just want to go on record as not-
ing that he was the one who said
this, not us. We report, you decide.
One of Jim Hutchinson’s friends in England spotted this and alerted him
to this Stauer Raceway Watch and Shelby Cobra Gift Set. Naturally, he
passed it on to us. The website’s description says, “
Inspired by the dashboard
instruments of high-performance racing cars, the Raceway sports a pair of
racing stripes down the dial and a two-tome nylon band.With three subdials
and a tough case, you’ll be ready to roll wherever the road takes you!
price was $299 but it has been slashed to only $99. Is this something you
absolutely must have? stauer.com/item/stauer-raceway-watch-shelby-
Warren was surprised to see a 2016
Ford GT race car on his television
while he was watching a morning
news show. Bill Ford was on the
show talking about driverless cars.
Young was driving along, peacefully
minding his own business, when he
passed a large silver chemical tanker
and staring at him from the side of
the trailer was the name “Cobra.”
We’re not sure what they were trans-
porting but does that matter?
