About the AC Cobra..

The AC Cobra was the result of what happened when Carroll Shelby, having had reasonable success as a driver on the European sports car racing scene, had to hang up the helmet due to a failing heart, but wanted to stay in racing one way or another. His idea, one that came to change sports car racing, and set the stage for the inevitable Ford against Ferrari showdown, was combining the best of the US with the best of Europe; he wanted to put a large American engine into a small, light European chassis.

About the Mach 1..

The Mach 1, a name that long ago became legendary in the world of Mustangs, was revived in 2003 by Ford with their 4th generation Pony car. As it was in the late 60s, the Mach 1 performance option package was set to capture the eye of people interested in a Mustang that was just that bit more aggressive, performance wise as well as visually, than stock.
