Shelby Cobra 427
I always liked the lines of the original Shelby.  This model was built out of the box from the recent Revell release.  On the model kit,
there is a rectangular 'box' surrounding the carburetor that is very thick.  On the real car, this is a sheet metal piece so I thinned it
down using a Dremel tool after stripping the chrome off.
