Thanks to Curt and his excellent CobraCountry website, my "Serpiente Dorada" (Golden Snake) E.R.A. Cobra is on its way up to Maryland this week.

Curt spent hours with me [trust me: capturing the color of my gold-colored snake required his specialized knowledge and car photography expertise] and helped me tremendously with his advice and suggestions.

Anyone who intends to turn to CobraCountry for selling his Cobra should phone Curt first and describe your car to him. It makes an incredible difference with the results you achieve... including of course landing a buyer for your car. He knows what he's doing, while most of us do not when it comes to marketing a Cobra.

Thanks again, Curt, for all your patience and sage advice.

22 July 2017

Dear Cobra Country:

You can mark my Twilight Blue E.R.A. Cobra SOLD! It's headed for a new home in Dallas, Texas.

Now listen: anyone considering selling his Cobra (or Daytona Coupe or GT40) should look no further than Cobra Country.

As a seller, it doesn't matter if you're the best photographer in the western hemisphere (and possess only the best camera equipment), be sure to phone Curt first and describe your Cobra to him (brand, color scheme, etc.). That step paid huge dividends for me and my friend (Rich Mathieson), who used his Nikon camera to shoot my car.

Curt's tips helped the two of us to get the best photos of my car (and in sub-freezing late-December temperatures, no less); Curt color-corrected them to perfection, and wrote the best narrative describing my car.

The photos of my Cobra on your website looked so good and the description was so appealing that I had serious second thoughts about selling it at all! Curt even helped connect the buyer with a great transport service based in my vicinity.

Again, many thanks for your site's resources and for Curt's personal help. It all made the listing and sale of my Cobra a smooth and rewarding experience.

Curt advised me that my good photos would play a big role in selling my car, and he was right: the new owner purchased it without flying down from Ohio to meet it in person!

Cobra Country's Policy regarding prosumer and professional photographers: If you intend to have a photographer—amateur or professional—photograph your Shelby drivin' machine, he (or she) MUST phone me first for a briefing on how to get it right... and not waste everyone's time with his inevitable hit-or-miss techniques. If he's not ready, willing and entirely receptive to do that, then get another photographer. Or better yet, take the photos yourself. Not negotiable... it's our firm policy. And if you wonder why, just look at the buzzard bait 'professional' photos in that Policy Statement linked above that were sent to us in the recent past... and I'll rest my case. CS

It meant a lot to me that Dennis would allow me to purchase this car; it turned out so well that the head of Roush Performance asked if they could borrow my car before I took final delivery. They said they would make it worth my while. I asked how long they needed the car. The answer was 'Up to a year.' Reluctantly I agreed, but as it happened I had no regrets. In return they stroked my 402 to 427 cid [the magic number]. They gave me a trick set of one-off billet valve covers, passes to SEMA and PRI. That's where I first got to see my car, when I was able to work my way through the crowds surrounding it. In addition Jack Roush signed my car inside the glovebox."

12 November 2017: Thanks to Curt and his excellent CobraCountry website, my "Serpiente Dorada" (Golden Snake) E.R.A. Cobra is on its way up to Maryland this week. Curt spent hours with me [trust me: capturing the color of my gold-colored snake required his specialized knowledge and car photography expertise] and helped me tremendously with his advice and suggestions. Anyone who intends to turn to CobraCountry as his sole (or primary) method for selling a Cobra must pore through Curt's "Cobra Photography Tips For Dipsticks" and follow them to the letter. Most importantly, phone him first and describe your car to him. It makes an incredible difference with the results you achieve... including of course landing a buyer for your car. Curt has only your best interests in mind, so pay close attention to what he tells you... he knows what he's doing, while most of us do not when it comes to marketing a Cobra. Thanks again, Curt, for all your patience and sage advice. Nestor Fernandez

19 June/September
22 July 2017: You can mark my Twilight Blue E.R.A. Cobra SOLD! It's headed for a new home in Dallas, Texas. Now listen: anyone considering selling his Cobra (or Daytona Coupe or GT40) should look no further than Cobra Country. As a seller, it doesn't matter if you're the best photographer in the western hemisphere (and possess only the best camera equipment), be sure to phone Curt first and describe your Cobra to him (brand, color scheme, etc.). That step paid huge dividends for me and my friend (Rich Mathieson), who used his Nikon camera to shoot my car. Curt's tips helped the two of us to get the best photos of my car (and in sub-freezing late-December temperatures, no less); Curt color-corrected them to perfection, and wrote the best narrative describing my car. The photos of my Cobra on your website looked so good and the description was so appealing that I had serious second thoughts about selling it at all! Curt even helped connect the buyer with a great transport service based in my vicinity. Again, many thanks for your site's resources and for Curt's personal help. It all made the listing and sale of my Cobra a smooth and rewarding experience. Pete Minck

But there's a whole lotta bullion goin' on here. Photo by Curt Scott.

11 March: You can mark my Bright Green/Mecca Pearl Contemporary Cobra SOLD! Gone (as a wedding present) to a wonderful bride & groom in northern Virginia! First thing I would like to say is thanks personally to Curt Scott of Cobra Country. Curt is reason my car sold at the price it did, when it did, to the young bride-to-be it did. Curt called me up after I sent him my first round of photos and gently informed me "We have to talk." I became—with Curt's guidance—an expert at photographing Cobras. Curt's Cobra photography tips could make a professional photographer out of a blind man. His pointers are quite straightforward, and above all impart the proper methods to shoot these cars. My Cobra was selected and purchased entirely because my second round of photos really captured its beauty. The sale went flawlessly. From the first contact with Cobra Country, the photography lesson, the buyers' inquiries and every other aspect of this sale was not only professional, it was a joy. My car went for the price I wanted to some absolutely wonderful, appreciative people. All of the guidance I encountered from Cobra Country was expert and spot-on for marketing and selling a high-priced motorcar over the internet. I cannot recommend Cobra Country more highly. I was even invited to the wedding, as was Curt. Now that's how you market and sell and buy a car. See ya' in Gettysburg, Curt. Doc Fallon
