2011 International Automotive Media Bronze Award Winner Named the “Greatest Car Book of All Time” by Esquire Shelby Cobra Fifty Years is Comer’s third book and proves what we all knew: it was worth the wait! Shelby Cobra Fifty Years is not only a complete history and celebration of Shelby’s Cobra, but also about the people that made it great and have kept the legend alive. From Carroll Shelby’s start in sports car racing, to his dream of building a world-class sports car, to the impact the Cobra had on the motoring world that is stronger than ever today, this book has it all. Consider it a stack of yearbooks from your favorite All-American’s career. This is a Cobra book like no other, a fresh approach from a writer who knows the cars like no other. As always, Comer delivers unbelievable and formerly unseen archival photos, combined with stunning contemporary shots that are worth the price of admission alone. As Carroll Shelby says in his foreword, “they got the right guy to write this book when they picked Colin.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
