1967 Pontiac Firebird

21-11-2012

In same way that Ruddspeed converted Mustangs from LHD to RHD, this 1967 Pontiac Firebird had the same conversion done by Ken and his team. Originally registered in the UK in 1967, this car was bought as a project and then restored over the next year or so by the current owner. Read more on our gallery page.

Goodwood: 50th Anniversary of the AC Cobra

21-11-2012

The finest collection of significant and authentic racing AC Cobras ever assembled in the UK will gather at next year's Goodwood Revival 

(14-16 September 2012) for an exceptional one-model race. 

To mark the 50th anniversary since Carroll Shelby's introduction of the initial versions of this cult Anglo-American sports car, the 2012 Revival will feature a grid exclusively made up of 30 Cobras and their derivatives. This special all-Cobra race will be a 45-minute two-driver competition, with driver changes in the pits between 15 and 30 minutes.
