  1. Here is the new book. I haven't seen it at Barnes & Noble but can anyone tell me, is this just his old book from 1967 reprinted with no updating in content or pictures to cover later years? Wasn't the original called The Cobra Story? Anyhow love to hear a book report, the price is certainly affordable. Here's the Amazon.com ad Editorial Reviews Review An absorbing saga that roars at more than 150 miles an hour. --The Indianapolis Star Fascinating --Boston Herald Dramatic --Detroit Free Press From the Inside Flap Carroll Shelby wasn't born to run. He was born to race"¬‚¬"some of the fastest cars ever to tear up a speedway. Now his high-velocity story has taken its place in racing history--in the words of the man who actually lived every action-packed second of it. The exciting new feature film Ford v Ferrari--starring Matt Damon as Shelby and Christian Bale as fellow racer Ken Miles--immortalizes the small-town Texas boy who won the notorious Le Mans 24-hour challenge, and revolutionized auto racing. But Shelby's got many more zero-to-speed-of-light stories to share, in his own wild, unmistakable style. A wizard behind the wheel, he was also a visionary designer of speed machines that ruled the racetrack and the road. While his GT40s racked up victories in the world's most prestigious professional racing showdowns, his masterpiece, the Ford Cobra, gave Europe's formidable Ferrari an all-American run for its money. With his foot on the pedal and his eyes on the prize, Carroll Shelby never looked back on his rocket-ride into greatness. Truly an autobiography in every sense, THE COBRA STORY will satisfy any reader with a need for speed.
