lol, very nice Camaro, as I built a
78' Pro-Street years ago but, I think I'll pass.
You can build your dream also bud, I did. I agree, I would rather have mine than a original, that's parked in the garage and barley driven !

I'm building a all sponsored parts, new, 2010 Genesis 427 side oiler, punched out to 527 ci, solid roller, pump gas 600-650 HP/TQ. It will be in Car Craft and Kit Car Builder magazine's. It will be about a "comparison: between the 60's side oiler and this new side oiler, bringing this famous motor up to date after 40 + years of technology, from parts, CNC machining ect....I may be at the Car Craft Nationals in Minnesota and the "Run N Gun" race in Hastings Nebraska, for them to take photo's of the engine and the car and interviews. It should be a blast !

I have permission to post photo & video links here and on 12 other websites. From the block prep, complete build talking about the products used, to the engine dyno and on the chassis dyno. Once broke in, I'll record a few 1/4 mile drag passes. If the video comes out to 1 hour, I will break it into 10 min. segments, so you can either watch the entire build at once or by each segment.

Sound interesting ?

Thanks for the compliment !

About

Hello, this is my 1966 Ford 427 Shelby Cobra (replica)
I actually bought the engine before I bought the replica kit. My Aunt lives in Vegas and her neighbor is a Top Gun Pilot for the Navy. He knows Carroll Shelby and he asked if I wanted a tour at Mr. Shelby's new shop and show room, I of course said YES !
I met Mr. Shelby for only 5 minutes but, at least I got to meet such a great man and a icon of racing. He asked what I wanted to purchase, I replied jokingly, "a engine". He showed me 5 and said, "pick one". I about fainted. He raced these engines in 1967. I looked them over and had one shipped home. I left it stock for 3 years but rebuilt it in 2003. It now had 563 HP at the wheels. Weighs 2400 lbs.

Best 1/4 mile- 10.38 at 134 mph.
Top speed- 164 mph at The Kansas Motor Speedway.

I was able to do all of the car except the engine machining and a great friend helped me assemble it.

I custom mixed the blue and added pearl to the white stripes. I also made several aluminum parts on the car. (see photo's)

I've built other cars over the years but, my Cobra is just a kick in the pants fun ! Like a skate board on wheels.

I love to go to shows with family, friends and talk to other owners of their cars. I let most people, including children, sit in the car and sometimes, let them fire up the engine. That's what shows are all about, the sharing and comradely with others. Trophy's are fine but I enjoy the time spent with car enthusiasts the most.

A friend and I are planning on starting car shows with no awards, any vehicle can enter, free to the public and just have a great time ! Hopefully we can accomplish this.

I have a long,.... story from my first show. It's about the "Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscle Dystrophy". I took a young man that is the "Ambassador for MS" for a ride in the Car. "My favorite of all time", he said. Sadly, he succumbed to the disease 4 months later. All of what happened is a great memory I'll have forever, and no trophy in the world can make me feel better than sharing the love of car's and time spent with, with Brian.

Thank you,
Kevin
