yeah, see ur point but apparently shelby don't mind if you do. they allow the authorized sale by alot of sites on the web. kit cars too, with the cobra. and alot of guys don't mind being posers. its out there. companies making bodies from the 60's for the stang and camaro.cloned crate engines of old school engines etc. cloned old school shelby/cobra wheels and even tires. so where theres $$$$ to be made, it will be done. i don't have a prob with it as long as the registation isn't cloned. as long as you don't have a fake vin on your shelby plaque. if you wanna put a badge on it , put a badge on it.
