Dear Cobra Country:

You can mark my CSX6019 SOLD! It's destined for a new stable 2,400 miles east of Los Angeles!

I cannot express how grateful I am for your professional guidance with photographing and helping me to assemble the narrative (ad copy) for my CSX Cobra. Within two weeks, I had multiple offers and settled on an offer from Philadelphia.

Honestly, I never realized the power of your website before I listed my Cobra. But now all I can say is your site has phenomenal 'reach.' And the caliber of Cobra enthusiasts contacting me to purchase my car is no less amazing. Color me a happy seller!

As a side note, I never appreciated just how critically important really good photographs are when telling the story of a car. In fact I would now advise folks that good photographs can tell a story that would require a million words, whereas the narrative is merely a short story.

Thank you!

Today my buyer drove 5 hours with a trailer to see my Cobra and take her home. Its new stable is in Youngstown, Ohio. One hour after she was loaded and on her way to a new home, I received a second firm offer for purchase from another ready buyer with cash in hand!

Curt's recommendations and your site's online advice brought me multiple qualified and motivated buyers. Thank you for your site's resources... especially your first-rate photography tips.

Only problem being that I now miss her.

Dear Cobra Country:

My Indigo Blue Superformance Cobra is SOLD and gone... after only a week or so on Cobra Country!

Your website is the only place anyone should go to sell their Cobra. Curt advised me that my good photos would sell my car promptly, and he was right!

I had several inquiries from all around the country, and two serious buyers... one in northern California and one down south in Orange County. It's now gone to a new stable in Mission Viejo.

My ad on eBay spawned tire kickers, lowballers and a few interesting trade opportunities.

Buying and selling of Cobras should be done on your site exclusively.

Many thanks once again for your help... and special thanks for your photography tips, which turned out to be every bit as spot-on effective for my GT350 as for my Superformance Cobra that I sold on your site a couple of years ago!

2 October 2015: You can mark my CSX6019 SOLD! It's destined for a new stable 2,400 miles east of Los Angeles! I cannot express how grateful I am for your professional guidance with photographing and helping me to assemble the narrative (ad copy) for my CSX Cobra. Within two weeks, I had multiple offers and settled on an offer from Philadelphia. Honestly, I never realized the power of your website before I listed my Cobra. But now all I can say is your site has phenomenal 'reach.' And the caliber of Cobra enthusiasts contacting me to purchase my car is no less amazing. The person who purchased my Cobra is a businessman and has been searching for a car like mine for quite a while. His passion for cars is also much aligned with mine, so I’m sure he will give my Cobra the finest home to rest its treads… color me a happy seller! As a side note, I never appreciated just how critically important really good photographs are when telling the story of a car. In fact I would now advise folks that good photographs can tell a story that would require a million words, whereas the narrative is merely a short story. Thank you! David Mazor

2 April 2015: You can mark that Brittany Blue 1967 Shelby GT350 SOLD! It's gone to a new stable down in Scottsdale, Arizona! I wasn't sure about the results we would get—with this not being a Cobra. But it certainly landed me in the very genre of buyers I was looking to reach! Many thanks once again for your help... and special thanks for your photography tips, which turned out to be every bit as spot-on effective for my GT350 as for my Superformance Cobra that I sold on your site a couple of years ago!

 Gold Metal 'slabside' debuted at A.H.A./Pomona show 

Shelby 427 Cobras for sale by owner

Here it is, folks:the 24k gold–bodied Kirkham 289 roadster introduced at the A.H.A.'s Fun-in-the-Sun show at Pomona.

Picked up only 13 days before at Kirkham's facility in Provo, Utah, this drivin' machine ranks as perhaps the most star-studded serpent of all time. Proud owner Darren Friedman wouldn't reveal just how many bullion bars were required for the 0.0125 mil gold sheet that was used to create this glistening beauty. But there's a whole lotta bullion goin' on here. Photo by Curt Scott.

Cobra/Daytona Coupe admirers: adjust your harnesses 

Peter Brock sent us this YouTube video link, which features a Daytona Coupe negotiating (at speed, of course) the straights, curves, corners and surface aberrations of Germany's historic Nürburgring track [Nürburg is the town—in Germany's Rheinland—"Ring" is how Germans characterize a circular track... hence "Nürburgring"]. Just click on the hotlinked 1961 Nürburgring "Grand Prix of Europe" Rennprogramm (race program) cover at left to transport yourself to The Nürburg Ring...

Needless to say, this is a video (and AUDIO) spectacular, so adjust your volume accordingly! And here's a li'l surprise: as genuine as the camera work appears to be, it's a digitally-produced animation... and it's wunderbar! Enjoy! Curt

16 January/March
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

Photography Tips
hotlink

You may think that all you need to know to take good photos of your Cobra is 1) how to turn on your camera, 2) how to aim it in the general direction of your serpent, and 3) how to press the shutter.

Think again.

That's the time-tested formula for capturing crappy snapshots that'll prompt all your potential buyers to flee screaming into the wilderness.

And justifiably so.

Photojournalist Curt Scott's latest revision has been carefully reworked just for you! It's a priceless investment of your time... a 'how-to manual' to very quickly enable you to capture professional-caliber photos of your Cobra or GT40.

Print it out, read it and heed it! And use the 7 'checklist' pages as you're snapping your shutter to make sure you take advantage of every expert tip.

Synthetic Oil: Rx for Long Engine Life

I keep getting questions about this ground-breaking treatise on synthetic oil that I researched and wrote in the early and mid-1980s, and first published way back in 1986.

Here's a hotlink to the only copy of that original article that I gave permission to be published (to Aaron Daniel, of the GetAHelmet.com website)... and the only copy on the Internet that I know of that is 100% replete with all of my original text, charts, captions and photos.
