Every year, around the last weekend of August or perhaps 1st weekend of September, a street car show takes place here in Manchester, the so called "Cruising Downtown". And for every pertrolhead/car enthusiast this is a grade A opportunity to admire some really cool cars. Like this 1966 Shelby Cobra for example, also called AC Cobra in UK. It is powered by the classic "side oiler" 7,0L V8 Ford engine delivering roughly 425HP (and allowing the car to have a whopping top speed of 164MPH) and while some people may think this is a Ford car, it's not. The manufacturer is AC (Auto Carriers Ltd) in UK or Carroll Shelby in the US. Ford, however, played a significant role developping this car as, aside from the giving it its hear (the engine), it also cooperated in the design of it. This is the 3rd Generation of the car and probably the most popular one.
