Serious inquiries only, please!

11 November 2020: You can mark my red Shelby Cobra, CSX4228, SOLD! It's going to a (well-known to CobraCountry pilgrims) American CSX collector, currently on an extended visit to London, England. I think CSX4228 will be shipped to southern California. And to all you folks who contacted me, rest assured that Farley isn't going with the car.   //:=)  Bob Brungardt
