Why I Can Vote With a Clear Conscience

This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.
This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.
That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.
If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.
It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.
We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.
The communist planks are all in place…
...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.
That one issue will have ramifications for decades.
Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

1965 Shelby 289 Cobra Roadster: Estimate $1,000,000 - $1,250,000



  • CSX2549
  • According to the Shelby Registry, fewer than 20 small block Cobras were built with the C4 Automatic
  • Invoiced on January 28, 1965 to Reynolds Motor Company in Los Angeles, California
  • Factory correct Silver/Red color combo
  • Class A accessories
  • Automatic transmission and chrome wire wheels
  • Reynolds was unable to sell the car and asked to return it to Shelby American for credit against future GT350 orders
  • Returned to Shelby American inventory in California in August of 1965
  • Invoiced to Hi Performance Motors and sold it circa 1967 to Marv Tonkin Ford
  • Tonkin sold the car to Jim Farmer of Lake Oswego, Oregon
  • Sold in 1978 to Monte Shelton of Portland, Oregon
  • Acquired by auto collector and journalist Jerry Heasley in 1988
  • Heasley commissioned Wayne Davis to refinish the car in original Silver
  • 289 CI engine
  • Red leather interior
Carroll Shelby’s impact on the automobile is almost immeasurable. He won in almost every form of motorsport he attacked, excelling as a driver and then as a manufacturer and racing team manager. He also redefined the sports car with the 289 Cobra, a lightweight hybrid that married AC’s Ace roadster with Ford’s all-new thinwall V-8 engine. Once Shelby’s chief engineer Phil Remington and driver Ken Miles sorted the combination, the Cobra proved a terror in competition, immediately trailering the new-for-1963 Corvette Sting Ray and eventually winning the World Manufacturers Championship in Daytona Coupe form.
