Shelby CobrasJanuary 25, 2022Reviewer: Tom Schultz from Wauwatosa, WI United States I have the book(s) and they are mind boggling. Detail beyond belief. My compliments to Mr. Walker for the most pain-staking research that this involved. Everything about every owner, color, repair is in here. I am somewhat surprised that it does not list the date and type of oil used for every oil change! It is that complete. Race histories are general and not every race listed, but this was not intended to be a race by race history. Cobra fanatics will go nuts over this two volume set. Warning--when the post man drops this off at your door you will need a fork lift to get it inside. It is heavy!
Incredible historical documentationJanuary 24, 2022Reviewer: Scott Vassh from Highland Village, TX United States Two volume set in a cover case books are large heavy and printed in full color on heavy paper. The quality of the printed books is one thing. The actual content is even more spectacular. An incredible amount of historical documents and photographs for each car in the initial series. This will be appreciated by any lover of the Shelby Cobra legend.
December 21, 2021Reviewer: Peter Bastian from Coesfeld, NRW Germany perfect book, fast delivery, thank you! I just wanted to share a brief review of this set. I received mine this week directly from the author. From a price perspective the $250 sounds expensive but once you get the books and see the quality of the material, hard covers, heavy paper with tons of historical color photos you'll understand it could not have been cheaper. Mine came packed with 3 outer boxes inside boxes to protect them. The box was so heavy I was trying to remember what car parts I had last ordered. Now the content itself is incredible. The amount of time the author spent researching these early Cobras would have been in the thousands if not tens of thousands of hours. As many details and history on each vehicle in one place as each present and previous owner(s) would make available. An unimaginable beginning to how this book set came to be starting with a dumpster in Germany full of old photos and details on many of the cars. If you're like me and always wonder about the history of a Cobra when it comes up for auction now you can look it up every time one of them comes up for sale. If you have always been mesmerized with the Shelby Legend like I have this will provide hours of enjoyment. I would recommend purchasing directly from the authour Bob Walker rather than the publisher. Available here: https://cobrapilote.com/ I've not read his other book but it looks impressive also.
Well put and I concur that is my exact experience and perspective. Mine arrived yesterday, signed by Robert, and is everything I'd hoped for. A quality production and it's already sucking me in with great interest. Brent
Oh sure, you couldn't have said the books are the worst you have ever seen, and you wouldn't spend $2.00 on them if you had to do it over! I swear, the Gods of the internal combustion always know when I am low on cash, and they just want to pick on me personally! Well, if I don't buy them, I know I will regret it big time in the future. The Ed Hugus book is also worth the money! Every true Cobra lover should know his story!
