Allen Grant -- Cobra  (Laguna Seca Oct. 19-20, 1963)

Grant at the top of the hill at Laguna Seca.   From Tony Ferrari:  "This picture shows Allen in the Coventry Motors yellow Cobra with a VERY determined expression on his face.  This was one of the cars I loved to watch a lot because a friend of mine who had the first street Cobra in this area worked at Coventry Motors.  We went to a few autocrosses together in 1963. And I always thought that Shelby's putting a Ford 289 in an AC Bristol was a stroke of genius. I remember the R?T article saying they got 0-60 in 4.2 sec.  WOW!
