Re: Shelby Cobra GT 500

Nope, sorry, have to say...uncool...the original was sub-zero, this is just a standard yank muscle car and that's all there is to it...just my humble opinion of course...

Re: Shelby Cobra GT 500

This is not a cool car.

Too ugly, too shouty and just too, well... rubbish.

If it was a person it would be a big lumbering monobrowed oaf wearing dungarees and whose mother is also it's brother. Good at line dancing though!

Cool.. Not subzero though, it takes more than just fast and brash to be subzero.
