Editorial Reviews

“Colin Comer may have been born to do this book…a beautiful book on every level… this book has it all – lovely writing in a tone of a friend over a pint telling you stories about cars that got away, handsome photographs, important photographs, plenty of inside information and insights, all bound up in a package as elegant and purposeful as the Cobra itself. Bravo.” – Sports Car Market, February 2010 “Colin Comer gives a thorough compilation of detailed information and photography about Shelby Mustangs, Cobras and Super Snakes from 1962 through today’s GT500KR.” – The Kansas City Star, November 27, 2009 “Shelby’s story is oft-told, but this book brings together all of his vehicular projects – from the first Cobra (photographed before he had decided ton the name “Cobra”) to his latest hot Mustangs – with all the highs and lows in between. Author Comer delivers an amazing amount of history in a very readable fashion, and the old-time and contemporary photographs are reproduced beautifully.” – Muscle Car Review, January 2010 “When you see a book described on its cover as being “complete,” your eyebrow automatically goes up. This is especially true when that adjective is describing a book on Shelby cars. There are so many examples, permutations and exceptions swirling around in the Cobra/Shelby universe that it’s almost a slam-dunk to imagine that something was overlooked. This is clearly not the case with SAAC member Colin Comer’s latest book. He tells the story and he gets it just right; he doesn’t gloss over the important stuff and it’s not a puff piece or an homage to Carroll Shelby. The glossy pages of this book have a very high quality feel to them. The reproduction of the photos are second to none and the color values are perfect. You will not be disappointed with this book.” - The Shelby American (SAAC Newsletter) “The perfect volume for tracing the lineage of every Shelby-built machine from the first Cobra in 1962 to today's GT500KR.” - Edmunds, November 24, 2009
