Quote from shelby website.
They were first used on a Cobra (CSX2128) at the 1963 Sebring FIA race. The stripes were painted on 2128 to distinguish it form the other team Cobras (all black painted body's) that were racing. The color chosen for the 2128 was yellow.

there is actually two stories, this and another which neither has anything solid supporting, just what people say.
the other is also in 63 but during the 24hrs of lemans. a team using 3 identical vettes used tape on the driver side front fender. 1 hash for car 1, etc.
this allowed the pit crew to distinguish cars and drivers. It also allowed some of the european relief drivers (mainly english) to differentiate the drivers side of the car easily.
There are pictures of the vettes in the 63 race with them. I haven't looked into actual race pictures for the shelby to see (not ones on shelbys site, actual race pictures which cant be claimed to be. If the shelby showed them it would then stand true since sebring was before lemans that year.

You have already posted this one, but yes it's a fail.


Autofails are about people making horrible aftermarket decisions to their cars. I do agree that it's a failure to drive this POS, it's just not the right kind of failure to post on the net and laugh at.


Same applies here, no failure in aftermarket mods.


Nothing wrong here!


Maybe headed in the wrong direction, but it's not a failure yet.


Nothing wrong here, just a different car culture.
The thread title is You're doing it wrong!(Post autofails here!), no rules are given stating that, fails must not include certain styles of cars. Therefor, its open for each persons view on the car. Rather its a fail to you or not, the person posting it considers it a fail. If you don't want the thread to be like that. Make rules stating that, anything that fits into a genre of car is not allowed to be posted.

No need to get your panties in a bunch Jason. Just stop repeating cars you've previously posted and maybe be a little more objective in your definition of an "autofail". Some of the ones you post are really bad and i do enjoy those.

This is why we changed the name from rice to fails; there are no guidelines this is 100% personnel preference thread.
