Alright, these aren't just any old snakes. These are the entrants in this year's Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, and each and every car on track is an original Shelby Cobra. Nor is this your run of the mill hill, either. We shot a quick video at the infamous corkscrew at Laguna Seca for your viewing pleasure. While photos of the event do a smart job of capturing the chaos, there's nothing like seeing and hearing all the cars pour through the downhill chicane in quick succession.

With 289 and 427 beasts barking through side pipes, the pack offers up a V8 cacauphony unlike any batch of modern race cars. As you may recall, that gorgeous Daytona Coupe out front wound up going home with some wrinkled sheetmetal later in the day due to an off. Scroll down below to take in the video for yourself, and be sure to click through the gallery for more goodness.

      My favorite car of all time. Few today realize the significance of this car. ** Off topic ** I always did my research and essay papers on the history the Cobra. My teacher hated it. She was a big fan of Wizard of Oz and the band Hansen. And my class was filled with rednecks writing about monster trucks, ect.

      You can tell that is the corkscreew just from that still image. Is that set of turns iconic or what? And I never could master that thing in Gran Tourismo.
