    New book on Shelby but how "new" is it?

    In the ad I saw, they didn't mention that it was written in '67 so I sispect this is The Cobra Story republished? But does it go beyond '67? It's obvious it's a new printing because it mentions the Ford v. Ferrari movie (may be called LeMans '66 in other markets). If anybody has it, tell us if...

    At last a car guy reviews Ford v. Ferrari, a Motor Trend editor

    He points out a lot of factual errors (doesn't mention that in the Shelby demonstrating a GT40 to HFII that they have them in a coupe when it was a roadster) but then goes on to praise the drama and spectacle, so i'd say he gave it a B plus. we will read more car guys reviews after the Los...
