    This was a great video, but it also must be said that even though the Cobras did dominate the race tracks of the 60's, they did not always win, out side of the Grand sports names like Dick Thompson, Dick Boo, Dick Gulstrand and Bill Sherwood beat the Cobras at there own game in Stock 63- Z0-6 Racing Corvettes. Dough Hooper won the first Riverside race against Cobras in 1963. The L88 427 66 Corvettes painted the writing on the wall for Cobras! By 1969 Corvette was king again..and as they say the rest is History!

    You clearly know a lot. You clearly are able to present facts in an interesting manner. Just STOP ACTING LIKE A CLOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is really a good advice. Out of curiosoty: how do people on the street react to you? Do they always take you serisouly? Or do people who meet you in person just take a selfie with you and then very quickly go away? Are you perhaps taking some drugs? Are you high during some of those shoots? Were you always like that? Even as a child? Did you have problems growing up?

    Soooo, purpose built racecars beat modified production cars... Nooo shit lmfao.. They never went door to door as they never homolagated them. Hence, a Ferrari 250 gto could afford you all 5 of the original grand sport Vettes and a far more common 427 Cobra is still valued in the millions..

    Duntov walked into the general managers office at Chevrolet with the finished blueprints for the mid rear corvette in the 60's and was told NO. "I'll raise the money and make it myself." Well that never happened however the C8 will soon be out and will finally be mid engine and rear wheel drive.
