Speed Merchants of Venice


Randy Richardson Michael Holmes


Cobra’s 50th anniversary is celebrated in Speed Merchants of Venice, a new book from Racing Division Los Angeles. Printed and bound in California, where the Cobra was born, the book was produced to accompany a new exhibit at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum and commemorate Carroll Shelby’s passing.
“We were extremely honored to be a part of this important exhibit,” said Michael Holmes, managing director of Racing Division. “Using selected images from the Shelby Foundation archives, many previously unpublished, we briefly tell the Cobra story from the first car assembled in Dean Moon’s hot-rod shop to the GT40s of Le Mans fame. Also included are chapters on the Dragonsnakes, Daytona Coupe, King Cobra and, of course, the 427.”
