Sheby Cobra: Fifty Years Is Esquire's Greatest Car Book of All Time

September 20, 2012
Shelby Cobra: Fifty Years was named Esquire Magazine's Greatest Car Book of All Time in its October 2012 issue.

In choosing the book, Esquire said: "Colin Comer's Shelby Cobra: Fifty Years is a milestone, an evocative love letter to the only American hot rod with a household name. Comer, a Shelby collector and racer, packs this gorgeous tome with illuminating no-fking-way interviews and miles-deep photography that tells the sweat-and-blood stories of the car's legend. Cobra mastermind Carrolll Shelby died in May, and his cars regularly trade hands for millions. Save having the man's ghost school you over drinks, it gets no better than this."
