    1. 1965 was the first production year for the 427 Cobra. In 1964 Shelby and Ken Miles put together a 390 powered Cobra for Sebring, so technically this was the first big block Cobra and although it was crude it laid the groundwork for the 427 cars.
    2. Yes, but both Chevy and Ford had engines with 427 cubes. Ford also made the 428 that was less expensive to produce than the all out racing 427. The 428 has a smaller bore but a longer stroke than the 427 it replaced.
    2.1 Some Shelby Cobra's did come with a 428 when the 427 motor was in short supply-probably around 100 cars or so.

    Nice! I would have thought something more "local"!

    Me too.
    Long Island Iced Tea is fine when you want to get silly fast, but I was hoping for something more Mediterranean.

    Well we’d been here for about 24 hours (A.T.O.P - at time of posting), so it was an easy choice to make and I was being relatively reserved (for me) and just sipping!

    Over the next two weeks, I will promise to try several local delicacies and report back.

    @Shawn@PRS - photos to follow soon.

    Barcelona grabs most of the attention, but there is something about Madrid that is really intriguing.

    A New addition to the collection. The GG5 I was bidding on, on the bay went way above my limits so I got the one in the middle instead.

    Yesterday, while at the lake, I looked on this frayed rope and saw this classic battle underway. This wasp had ahold of the spider and was stinging it repeatedly. The wasp finally won. He flung the spider off the rope, and was dragging him off for a feast.

    Your wasp reminded me of this nightmare. This was 1 foot above my head and I hadn't noticed it until a bird was freaking out and made me look up. I walked under this for months in the yard while cutting grass.
