"It's a Cobra" refers to the image in the grill.

This kinda illustrates why we are STILL talking about this subject. Ford continues to put Cobras all over the GT500. Ford's intent is clear, they want the Cobra to be associated, even identified with the GT500. If they didn't they would just remove it.

As long as FORD puts Cobras on GT500s they will continue to be known as such.

It was raining today and I didn't have any projects so I browsed this discussion. I've never called my car a Cobra because it is a 2008 Ford Shelby GT500. We call it the Shelby or more often the GT500. I have a Ford SVT license plate frame as a nod to it's true origin.

It doesn't say Cobra on my car but it may have on the original cars if these GT350 & GT500 reproduction parts are correct. They appear to match pictures I've seen of the 67 & 68 cars.

When the President calls, tell him I'm in conference with Volodymyr right now, and that the CDM report will be released shortly. The shipment of Cobra helicopters will arrive within the week.
