  1. Check out these photos of the 1970 Dodge Charger (Ice Charter) from the Fate of the Furious movie from Universal Orlando, Fla.
  2. The S550 Mustang is taking a beating sales wise for 2017 already. It may not be the design because it looks like consumers are once again shifting more toward trucks and SUVs instead of cars. GM has a whopping 98-day supply of cars - DOH!
  3. *If* there is to be an upcoming King Cobra, I can't see it happening in 2018 and the same can be said for a GT500KR - the program isn't that far along yet for the next bad ass Mustang. You're probably looking at something more in the 2019 or 2019.5 frame time.
  4. Ford stock has really stalled out compared to other auto makers. With that being said though, it's a great time to pick up some shares at a discounted price.
  5. Ford Motor Company Authorizes Official King Cobra Club Effective 23 February 2017, the Ford Motor Company has officially authorized the King Cobra Club, which will be part of the King Cobra Forum. In the future, the King Cobra Club will offer official club merchandise, coordinate events and more. King Cobra Registry The King Cobra Club joins the King Cobra Registry, which has also been officially authorized by the Ford Motor Company. King Cobra owners have already been registering their King Cobras since August 2016 when the registry was opened up. To register your King Cobra, please click here.

  12. Court Hearing Set for Day Cobra CSX2000 Hits the Auction Block Dearborn, MI. As has been reported around the web, Shelby California is scheduled to auction off Carroll Shelby's crown jewel, CSX2000 to the highest bidder as well as Carroll's Cobra 427 CSX 3178 - more here. Interestingly though, a restraining order/injunction hearing is now set for that same day, 19 August @ 8:30 AM in Los Angeles, Calf. due to a lawsuit filed by Mrs. Cleo Shelby. In relation to the same case, in court filings and IRS records, part of Mrs. Cleo Shelby's lawsuit demands to know why alleged large amounts of money are being spent from the foundation's coffers while an extremely small amount is being spent on charitable causes - the reason of the foundation's existence. Let's hope that this isn't a repeat of the controversy surrounding the Carroll Shelby Foundation, which occurred in 2007: http://www.autonews.com/…/carroll-shelbys-charity-takes-in-… If you're interested in all of the upcoming trial dates, here they are: Court Dates and Times: Carroll Shelby Hall Trust 07/06/2016 at 10:00 AM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Motion Hearing 08/19/2016 at 08:30 AM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Restraining/Injunctive Order Hearing 08/19/2016 at 08:30 AM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Conference Hearing 08/29/2016 at 08:30 AM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Court Trial 08/30/2016 at 13:30 PM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Court Trial 08/31/2016 at 13:30 PM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Court Trial 09/01/2016 at 13:30 PM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Court Trial 09/02/2016 at 08:30 AM in Probate Department 79 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Court Trial
  13. With Shelby Calf. selling off the very first Shelby Cobra, CSX2000, we thought that it would a good time to share a very iconic memo sent from the Ford Motor Company to Carroll Shelby on 15 December 1961. The memo confirms that that Ford has shipped Shelby a 260 High Performance V8, which would be installed into CSX2000, thus starting the Cobra program. If you're interested in the address where sent the engine to back in 1962, click here.
  14. Shelby American Lays Off Dozens? Earlier today, it was announced that Sothebys would be auctioning off CSX2000, otherwise known as the holy-grail of the Shelby world, Cobra #1. If that wasn't enough for good measure, Shelby would also be selling another of Carroll Shelby's personal Cobras, CSX3178 - a Cobra 427 with an automatic transmission. You can read the auction listing here. Speculation in the Shelby world as to why Shelby would be selling the two classic Cobras has been waging all day - is Shelby running short of cash? Maybe. On 11 June, we reported here that Shelby American let go Shelby V.P. development engineer and resident Shelby guru Akos Feher as well as Shelby V.P. of marketing Gary Schechner. Once again, Shelby American may not have a single professional in house engineer - they might not even have a capable R & D staff. Moreover, Shelby doesn't seem to have a seasoned marketing veteran either. Consistency counts. We also noted that the negative financial trend at Shelby wasn't going to be favorable to them going forward and it may have rung true today as Shelby American's already thin staff allegedly got pruned as between 25-28 workers were laid off due to a dramatic plunge in sales. Check back for more updates on the King Cobra Forum as they happen.
  15. Carroll Shelby's Cobras Up For Sale, Even CSX2000 Shelby American, allegedly is in desperate need for cash and is set to auction off Carroll Shelby's crown jewels, CSX2000. You can read the disgusting news, right here: http://link.rmsothebys.com/m/09a2c32a9853496fb1f75e1eac73461d/DBD8B9EC/062016
