Whats even rarer than seeing a real Shelby Cobra at a car show? Meeting the original owner of one. One of only seven original Cobra owners, (Carroll Shelby, who was signing autographs at the show, is another), Hank Williams of Fontana, California, has amassed more than 130,000 miles on the 289-powered hardtop he bought for $6,339.29 in 1963. Still wearing its original paint, interior, and American Racing magnesium wheels, the car has survived remarkably well, considering the fact that Williams has raced it in hundreds of road course events over the years.
