    When California sinks into the sea, it’ll take a lot of the motoring history that’s tucked away in corners of the state with it. This particular piece of history, at least, survived the fires and found a home in Jay Leno’s Garage. Just a temporary one, though. The car is owned by a company...

    Hey All, I recently picked up a 97 Cobra and am currently fixing a TON of little things throughout. One thing that I have a question about is the running temps on this car. The previous owner noted that there is a performance thermostat on the vehicle which causes it to run hot. That being...

    Hey Yall, I recently acquired a 97 Cobra and it has a few electrical gremlins that I need to start tracking down... The first one up is that the fuel gauge and temperature gauge only work part of the time. There will be drives when they function perfectly, no issues what so ever, but then I...

    The Petersen Automotive Museum has been a font of informative entertainment over the past month, and it’s not stopping now. The museum has released archival footage to its YouTube page that features driving ace Ken Miles. The footage comes in a 52-minute documentary called “The Wonderful World...

    To those of us who grew up watching car shows on Saturday morning instead of cartoons, Dennis Gage’s glorious moustache is a promise of insight and historical excellence. It’s hardly surprising then that this nearly 100 minute, unedited interview with Carroll Shelby should come from his show, My...

    As Ford vs. Ferrari approaches, the press tour begins. Naturally, Matt Damon took a 289 Cobra to visit Jay Leno and talk about the movie and reveal a few details. As someone who knew Carroll Shelby, Leno is especially well placed to judge Damon's portrayal of the story's central character. And...

    Hey all. First post in a long time. Sold my 67 five years ago and just bought a 96 Mystic Cobra. It's my 8th Mustang and I think this one's a keeper. So one of the first things i want to change out are the front seats. I'm pretty tall and have always felt the SN95 seats don't go back far enough...

    Hello! Names Mike, and I currently own a 2004 DSG Mustang GT Deluxe. This is my 3rd "New Edge" and I have some serious plans with this car as time goes on. My first was a 2000 Convertible that I had Vortech Supercharged and eventually blew it up. Second was one of my favorite and is what...

    Hi, SVT lovers! Just joined and I'm thinking that I'm following all the Forum rules, so I'm posting this issue that I have and hoping that I can get your valuable opinions... I got a 2003 Cobra that I bought in 2004 with only 5000 miles on it. The car has been running fine and it now has 67k...

    Hi all. Finally found and removed all the bolts (apparently), but the bottom of the cover doesn't want to come loose. And yes, I removed the four oil-pan bolts. Is it just the gasket at the bottom? Not sure what to pry this with so I don't mar the mating surface. Also, do I have to remove the...

    There are more than a few cliches in the automotive world. Manuals are better! No replacement for displacement! And V8s sound best. Even though we've all heard them before, and even though they may not be true in 100% of cases, it’s still nice to be reminded why these stereotypes exist. Case in...

    Being responsible for some of the world’s best and most desirable cars, it should come as no surprise that Carroll Shelby had a pretty great car collection. But the quality and diversity of the collection, a part of which will go across the auction block at Bonham’s June 2 and 3 Greenwich...

    Back in January, Hagerty published a video from a condemned garage. In the garage was a collection of cars, including a Ferrari 275 GT Long Nose and a '67 427 Shelby Cobra with just 19 miles on the dial. Since finding them, the show helped get them out of the garage and now both cars have...

    Two very special Fords will be up for auction at Gooding & Company's Amelia Island event this year. The very last Ford GT40 Mk. IV and a very original and 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra. This Mark IV made it to Le Mans twice, but its tires never turned in anger on le Circuit de la Sarthe. This was...

    This might be the strangest Shelby Cobra you'll ever see. But it's not because of a strange body kit, a massive high-performance engine, or a storied racing history. It's because this one is missing a pedal. The clutch pedal, to be more precise. That's because this is one of a very small...

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice because my '97 cobra won't start. I bought a new battery so it's not that. It turns over (I can see the motor and belt turning) and then it makes a drawn out whining sound. It's like it tries to turn over but never catches. The car was inspected 8 months ago and...

    My name is Carl. I am from Florida. I don't have a mustang yet so I registered here for some help. I can purchase a 97 Cobra for 4K. It needs a rebuilt engine and a new throughout bearing. It is burning oil very mad so i was wondering is this a good price. Here is the list of mods to it all...

    Hey all, in the future I plan on picking up a second 1994-1995 Mustang GT to accompany the current '95 GTS. I'll be swapping in a 4.6 DOHC I'm in the process of building (slowly...) and I've been doing as much research as possible before starting this and asking to see if anyone else has done...
