Hello everyone I just registered
I live in the distant Italy but I'm a big fan of Schelby
Unfortunately in Italy there is nothing forum or club then
I found today this forum and I joined immediately-
I hope to learn many things and I find help in buying a cobra427sc

I'd do a lot of questions for you experts.

Think dress 10 km from the ferrari at 5km and 25 km from the maserati lamborghini but
the sound of the V8 American is spectacular and wonderful
hello robbi

ciao a tutti mi sono appena registrato
abito nella lontanissima italia ma sono un grande appassionato di Schelby
Purtroppo in italia non c'è nulla di forum o di club quindi
ho trovato oggi questo forum e mi sono iscritto subito-
spero di imparare tante cose e che trovo aiuto ad acquistare una cobra427sc

avrei tante domande da farei a voi esperti.

Pensate abito a 10 km dalla ferrari a 5km dalla maserati e 25 km dalla lamborghini ma
il sound del v8 americano è spettacolare e meraviglioso

Welcome Robbi,

I have tried using google translate for other languages and it can be difficult to translate what you want to say exactly.

Finding a 427 Cobra SC is not going to be easy, There is a Goodwood festival in Europe, annually, that would be a great place to see them in person. Unfortunatley this year's event has already passed.
This forum tends to focus on the newer generation Shelby cars but, if you ask us questions and I'm sure someone will try to answer them. Good Luck

Welcome. I've heard that Italy knows something about fast cars and styling, but that could just be a rumor.

Enjoy the forums.

Ciao Robbi, probabilmente in Italia è difficile trovare una Cobra, ma è facile trovare un forum di appassionati (te lo dice un bolognese).

Hi Robbi, probably it's hard to find a Cobra in Italy, but it is so easy to find a fans forum (trust me, I'm from Bologna)

For Shelby Cobras (and other replicas, like Superformance and Factory Five) I would suggest you sign up at the Cobra forum, www.clubcobra.com. For cars for sale, and many will do an international transaction as they are frequently done, you should look at the cars for sale on www.cobracountry.com.

I sold my Shelby CSX4000 Cobra through Cobra Country and it went international (to Japan).
