Shelbys are the most iconic performance cars in the history of the American auto industry. This lavishly illustrated work conducts readers through Shelby American's forty-plus years.

With extensive details, specs, and photographic coverage, this book is the ultimate resource on America’s most exotic performance car.

レビュー

“Colin Comer may have been born to do this book…a beautiful book on every level… this book has it all – lovely writing in a tone of a friend over a pint telling you stories about cars that got away, handsome photographs, important photographs, plenty of inside information and insights, all bound up in a package as elegant and purposeful as the Cobra itself. Bravo.” – Sports Car Market, February 2010

“Colin Comer gives a thorough compilation of detailed information and photography about Shelby Mustangs, Cobras and Super Snakes from 1962 through today’s GT500KR.” – The Kansas City Star, November 27, 2009

“Shelby’s story is oft-told, but this book brings together all of his vehicular projects – from the first Cobra (photographed before he had decided ton the name “Cobra”) to his latest hot Mustangs – with all the highs and lows in between. Author Comer delivers an amazing amount of history in a very readable fashion, and the old-time and contemporary photographs are reproduced beautifully.” – Muscle Car Review, January 2010

“When you see a book described on its cover as being “complete,” your eyebrow automatically goes up. This is especially true when that adjective is describing a book on Shelby cars. There are so many examples, permutations and exceptions swirling around in the Cobra/Shelby universe that it’s almost a slam-dunk to imagine that something was overlooked. This is clearly not the case with SAAC member Colin Comer’s latest book. He tells the story and he gets it just right; he doesn’t gloss over the important stuff and it’s not a puff piece or an homage to Carroll Shelby. The glossy pages of this book have a very high quality feel to them. The reproduction of the photos are second to none and the color values are perfect. You will not be disappointed with this book.” - The Shelby American (SAAC Newsletter)

 “The perfect volume for tracing the lineage of every Shelby-built machine from the first Cobra in 1962 to today's GT500KR.” - Edmunds InsideLine.com, November 24, 2009



Edmunds.com
“…that's just what The Complete Book of Shelby Automobiles by Colin Comer is. As an in-depth look at perhaps the most interesting series of cars, built by arguably America's most interesting automotive icon, this hardbound tribute to Carroll Shelby's vehicles is over 250 pages of historic (and modern) photos, facts and fun. If you fancy yourself an expert on Shelby automobiles consider reading this book an excellent test of your knowledge, as I'm betting you'll still learn plenty. If you don't know anything about them, here's your chance to get fully caught up in one quick and entertaining read.”



Vintage Motorsport
“Who needed another book on Shelby anything, yet author Colin Comer delivers in spades, taking the reader on a ride through Shelby American’s exciting 40-plus years, from the very first Cobra to the New Millennium Shelbys. Blended nicely with historic and contemporary photographs, pleasing graphic design adds to the informative and pleasurable read. Specs and details abound, so yes, it’s well worth adding this to your Shelby book collection.”

Muscle Car Enthusiast
“A lot of ink has been spilled chronicling the life and times of Carroll Shelby, so it’s not easy to produce a Shelby book that delivers a fresh take. Colin Comer’s The Complete Book of Shelby Automobiles: Cobras, Mustangs, and Super Snakes is one of those rare volumes that covers a lot of familiar territory yet finds new things to say.”

“When you see a book described on its cover as being “complete,” your eyebrow automatically goes up. This is especially true when that adjective is describing a book on Shelby cars.

Examiner.com, October 15, 2009  
"The Complete Book of Shelby is just that - a complete listing of Shelby automobiles. And while the story of Carroll Shelby the man has been told over and over, finally, Comer has given Shelby enthusiasts what they want. Something fresh and new that talks less about the man and more about the cars. Pairing Comer's unique, entertaining writing style with never before seen archival photographs and current pictures, The Complete Book of Shelby is in a class all by itself.

Bangshift.com, November 17, 2009
“Colin Comer's The Complete Book of Shelby Automobiles covers all the bases, and we mean all of them. Even the guy who "knows" about Shelby cars will be educated by reading this book. No matter what you think of Carroll Shelby, his story is uniquely American and pretty inspiring. He's a marketer par excellence and has played to his strengths through his long career with cars. This book educated us, awed us with photos, and earned our respect with an balanced look at the long and storied history of the vaunted Shelby name.”



“In a few short years, Colin Comer has emerged as a leading voice when it comes to muscle cars and other high-performance American machines. Packed with great vintage images (and much current color photography), it’s perfect for anyone with an interest in great American sports and racing cars.” – Hagerty’s

“No doubt, when they say complete they mean it. The book is some serious reading at around 256 pages, but well worth it. Comer teamed up with one of my favorite automotive photographers, David Newhardt, who produces some amazing photos of various Shelby machines throughout the book. You'll also find plenty of historic photos in the mix. If you are at all interested in Carroll Shelby and Shelby American, I recommend giving this one a read.” – About.com

5つ星のうち 5.0 Best Shelby book out there 2009/11/9
By David A. Hidalgo - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
This book, unlike previous efforts on the topic, tells the entire Shelby story from the early 260 Cobras to today's monster Shelby GT500s. While most books have featured a narrow band of Shelby history illustrated with vintage black and white photos, this one covers the entire spectrum with a balanced combination of old black and white photos (many not seen before) and a plethora of crisp color photos taken in more recent times. Every model, both old and new, is deliciously illustrated.

This book is complete in comprehensively documenting not only the better known Shelby efforts but all of the side trips he made as well (Sunbeam Tiger, Viper, Toyota 2000 GT, Shelby Dodges, Series 1). The author's passion and expertise permeate the book. While authoritative, the text is easy to read due to an engaging prose style. This book is a must buy for both new and established collectors of the marque as well as those with a more general interest in one of the greatest automotive success stories in America.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Finally a book worthy of the man and his cars! 2009/10/26
By L. Quam - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
My first car was a 69 Shelby Mustang GT 350 convertible and I drove it everyday from 1974 until 1984 and have been a student of Shelby and his cars ever since. Presently as an owner of three vintage Shelby Mustangs and two new Shelby Supersnakes I continue to drive and enjoy Shelby's rolling works of art and have probably read every book ever written about him including the SAAC registry cover to cover. Colin Comer's Sequel to his best selling Million Dollar Muscle car book is simply in my view the first Shelby book worthy of the man and his cars. More importantly even if your not a car person Comer's writing style is witty and irreverent making it an easy and fascinating historical read for anyone curious about a certified American icon. Carroll Shelby will be remembered as one of the two or three most significant people in automotive history and this book artfully takes you along for the ride on one of the best adventures anyone ever turned into a life.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great book on Shelby! 2009/10/26
By Ivy G - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I just got my new book by Colin Comer, and, was truly amazed at the amount of new information, and especially, never before seen pictures that the author has been able to include. Lots of books have been written about Shelby cars, but, this has got them all beat by a wide margin.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The best automotive book I have ever read 2010/2/23
By Rider Boy - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I always take a book called "The Complete Book of..." with a grain of salt. I have never seen a book that really was complete. Until now, that is. This book is unbelievable. Either Mr. Comer has a crack team of researchers in his employment, or else the man possesses a freakish amount of knowledge about Shelby automobiles. Either way, the end result is the first "Complete Book of..." that really is the complete book on the subject.

But the stellar quality of this book doesn't end with it's completeness. Normally I'd expect a book like this to read like an entertaining encyclopedia, and I wouldn't be disappointed with that. What I got instead was an extremely well-written--gripping, even--narrative that was as much fun to read as it was to look at, if not more so. It certainly functions as the repository of information that I expected (more-so, actually, since, for once, it really was complete, as advertised), but it also tells a hellaciously good story. As a whole package, this book is absolutely astounding.
