Books - Cobra Pilote, The Ed Hugus Story (Author: Walker)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Cobra Pilote, The Ed Hugus Story Weight 2kg By Robert D Walker In the early 1950s Ed Hugus started what he planned as the ‘ultimate import car dealership’ in Pittsburgh and his skill as a salesman and manager saw the business flourish and expand at an impressive rate. The successful business allowed him to indulge a passion for racing in a variety of machines and a few years later he was approached by Carroll Shelby, the pair knowing each other from competition, as the latter was struggling to fund his new Cobra project. The deal was that Hugus would sell the first batch of cars to recoup his investment and those initial cars were completed in his workshops. He was then involved in the early competition career of Shelby’s machines including at Le Mans in 1963, one of ten consecutive participations in a variety of machinery. With over three hundred carefully selected images this tells of the rise of the business, those early Cobras and of course plenty of racing activity.
