I actually had the Pleasure of Refinishing a Shelby Cobra Factory Five Body for a really Cool Client !

 


His name is Dick Crook what a great guy. Have you ever worked with someone on a project or maybe at a job where every you were and you just realized that this person was exceptional ?

 

 

Well that was the case with this project and its always special when that happens because when the project is over and the Job is complete you realize that you miss seeing each other . That was the case with Dick when we finished his Shelby Cobra Project.

 

 

It was bitter sweet because we couldn’t hang out at the shop each day. Dick was the guy that was actually filming the job as I was spraying and working on the project. That’s why you dont see him FYI.

When we finished the car Dick Thru me the keys and said “lets drive ” well you saw the pictures of me ?

I’m not a small guy – Nobody ever accused me of missing a meal! 

  With some convincing I wedged myself in the drivers seat and got comfortable .

Then Comes the  fun part ( seriously wasn’t ready for this ) and for people that know me I was always building go fast cars and even had the pleasure of Piloting  38 cigarette Top-gun for many years off the Block Island sound whats the point ?

OK I will get to it when I put my foot into this Shelby Cobra .

This monster just leaped up with both wheels of the ground “my god what should one do when this happens ? I will tell you don’t let off the gas 🙂

This monster took off faster than my twin turbo porches I look over and Dicks smiling from ear to ear .. You just had to be there I guess this guy became a good friend and – to see his dream when he was retired come thru it was Just awesome !
