Opinion

Life sometimes gets in the way. But what happened to pride of ownership?

Take pride in what you own and protect it from damage. It won't make as good a barn find, and that's ok with me.

Carroll Shelby is undoubtedly the father of the Shelby Cobra, but Lynn Park might be the model's reigning king. He estimates he's owned 50 Cobras in his life and judging by his garage, he doesn't part with them too easily. For its latest video, XCar Films interviews this fascinating enthusiast with the nickname Mr. Cobra.

Forget Ferrari, We've Got A Batmobile

Here's a Pro Tip for all you would-be classic car investors out there: buy Ferraris. With the Pebble Beach festivities kicking off this week, including any number high end car auctions, we thought it would be entertaining to compile a list of some to the most expensive cars ever sold with the bang of a gavel. Trouble is, once you get past the splendor of everyone's favorite Italian sports car maker, that list is pretty boring.

Typically when an automaker rolls out a concept car or pre-production prototype, it does its tour and then disappears into the company's archives. Maybe it will be displayed for the public to see in the company's own museum or maybe it will spend most of its time under covers in a warehouse somewhere, but every once in a while, an automaker will open up its history and start selling off its concept cars. For Shelby American, "once in a while" has just rolled around.

We finally caught up to the CSX7000 Shelby 289 FIA Cobra at Barrett-Jackson, the Continuation Cobra that will be limited to 50 examples, each starting at $94,995 as a fiberglass rolling chassis. It celebrates the 50-year birthday of the Shelby 289 FIA Cobra and some of its legendary drivers with names like Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant and Phil Hill.

Official

To celebrate 50 years since the Shelby Cobra made its mark on the FIA racing world, Shelby American has created a special limited-production Continuation Cobra called the CSX7000 Shelby 289 FIA Cobra. Limited to just 50 units, this commemorative model was unveiled today at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, and it pays homage to the car raced by legends like Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant and Phil Hill.

It's been more than a year since we were first introduced to the Puritalia 427, but it looks like the low-weight, high-horsepower roadster is one step closer to hitting the road. As an update about the car's progress, Puritalia has released three images of the first production 427 as it prepares for testing.

The changes happening at the Petersen Museum have been making the rounds in major press, but it probably won't be until August 18, during Pebble Beach, when we get the full story on what's happening; that's where and when museum reps plan on announcing the way forward for the SoCal institution. In the meantime, the museum is still reorganizing its collection, and that means auctioning some of its showpieces at this weekend's Auctions America event in Burbank.

A burnout is like a boast, the rubber-shredding equivalent of Babe Ruth pointing his fingers at the center-field bleachers. And everyone knows once you've boasted, you've got to back it up. If The Babe had grounded out to first, the "Called Shot" would be a laugh, not a legend.
