The SHELBY AMERICAN

More posters. Graphic designer and illustrator Arthur Schening offers dozens of posters on his website. They list for
$30 each (two for $45 and further discounts for other quantities). Size is 13˝ x 19˝. We picked five favorites from his
Roger Morrison of Salina, Kansas
spotted this cobra on a karate champi-
Brian Walshe of Scarsdale, New York
spotted this Cobra van in nearby
Yonkers. He was considering making
an offer for what may be a rare exam-
ple of Cobra memorabilia.
Why are we not surprised? Marianne
Russell has been a steadying influence
in husband Mike for 48 years. He is
the original owner of a Lime Gold ‘67
GT350 and it appears that she has ac-
quired some of his interest in his car,
likely by osmosis. She was reading a
copy of the August, 2016 issue of
ter Homes and Gardens
when her eye
was attracted to a picture of a Lime
Gold 1967 Shelby with white stripes.
Exactly like the one sitting in the
garage right below her. Coincidence –
or is something else going on here?
We thought this ad for uber exotic car
dealer Canepa was catchy. It was run
in a magazine that was published just
before the Fourth of July holiday.
Back in the Fall, 2015 issue we ran a
picture of a cobra lily that was sent to
us by Carl Gagnon as a bulb. He saw
“cobra” and couldn’t resist. Our thumb
isn’t even close to being green so we
put the bulb in the hands of a talented
gardener who happens to work in the
Sharon P.O.. Kelly buried the bulb and
watched over it, and sure enough it
came up and flowered. Then there was
the fall, followed by the winter. We re-
ally didn’t expect to see it again but it
popped up this spring and here it is in
full bloom. There’s a good chance it
could come back every year. Like Carl.
Doug Cresanta was on a roll. He saw
this garage in Arkon, Ohio while he
was traveling to the convention at
Mid-Ohio but didn’t need any work
done on his Shelby, so he kept going.
We can’t help wondering what the
“AB” stands for?
We spotted this fighter nose art at the
Air Force Museum at Wright-Patter-
son AFB in Dayton, Ohio.
