    Here in Tucson there's a big Street Fair going on. People search for parking all around my neighborhood. So right in front of my place a guy parks a stunning blue Shelby Cobra. It is signed on the dash board by Carroll Shelby himself. He even opened the hood and let me take pictures of the engine. The guy who was a passenger lives in Dallas and is a Cowboys fan. I invited him to the site.

    Yes, I took pictures. I will do my best to figure out how to post them. As most of you know I am stupid with graphics.

    I need to take a cold shower first. This is my all time favorite car. Man did it sound good when he revved up as he left.

    I asked him what the fastest he ever had taken it was. He said, "145 on a racetrack. The car wanted to go faster than I did."

    Here's the first picture. Try not to drool. You might short out your keyboard.

    Here you can see Carroll Shelby's autograph.

    Notice the license plate.

    A little dark, but man can you see the lines of this car.

    Front view. You can barely see the twin fans. I was hoping you'd see the Cobra logo a little better.

    What a beautiful car. I would do unforgivable things to drive one of those. Thanks for sharing Hos, I'm jealous!

    If he had let me sit in it I would have had an accident. I didn't ask. I didn't want to be disrespectful.

    Awesome car. Pretty much a death machine, but I guarantee you'd die with a smile on your face.

    If it had the rally stripes it would be pretty close to that car.
