The thieves were actually watching the car for several days and new exactly where it was and when to grab it. It was stolen in broad day light right from our home garage that had a expensive dead bolt lock on it. Odds are the thieves worked on the car at the shop and knew the address of the car. They waited until no one was home, cut the lock and drove the car out. Interesting thing about Shelby Cobras is that Ford only made five ignition keys for it. It was very easy back then to get one or make a copy of the key especially if you have been working on the car all day.

The older Fords only need a 3' piece of wire to turn on. That's how I would turn on my 68 Mustangs.  sometimes  ;)

That is an awesome story!  I'd love to see some pics of the car in it's current condition when it finally gets recovered.
