Re: Shelby Series 1 Great car or Penismobile? (Chris V)
quote:[HR][/HR]Shelby actually built cars. Shelby got paid to take on the world, and won. He knows what he's talking about. Same with Smokey. If that's being a jackass, then sign me up. Until your record looks like theirs, I'll tend to side with them.[HR][/HR]
If you were an owner of a Cobra replica, you wouldn't be saying that. Currently, Shelby is suing not only all the Cobra replica manufacturers, but also all the owners of replicas that he didn't personally authorize. He wants those owners to either pay him an as-yet unspecified amount, or give him their car to be destroyed.
Oh, and if you were one of the first buyers who plunked down money on a Series I thinking it'd be only $80K, you wouldn't be saying that, either. Those original buyers had to sue to get their money back, even though the price has now inflated to double the original cost, and even though the first cars weren't delivered until years after being promised.
