it’s hard not to notice a shelby cobra sitting in any environment, but its especially hard when the only thing competing for your attention is the baggage carousel.  I was a little curious about the crew that had put this car together for display, and with the power of google I discovered that Factory Five Racing actually does a number of kit cars based on true classics.  clearly they have a love for Shelby cars (meaning clearly they have really good taste).  take a look at the incredible Type 65 Coupe (really a renamed Shelby Daytona).  it’s been a long, long time since I’ve looked at a car and thought “I would piss away exorbitant amounts of money to own that thing” but the shelby daytona makes you do just that.  turns out it’s not that expensive … but you have to know how to put a car together.  time to get back to practicing with the wee model versions.
