Bob Walker is the author of a new book titled Cobra Pilote: The Ed Hugus Story. Bob, a Cobra owner who lives in Pebble Beach, California, was competing in the Monterey Historic Races when he met James Edward (ED) Hugus, a racing driver and car dealer who helped Carroll Shelby develop the first Cobra. Bob and Ed became friends and during that time he told Bob about his experiences with Carroll Shelby and the part he played in the beginning of the Cobra’s history. Ed Hugus passed away in 2006 but his story lives on through the work of Bob who tells the Cobra story in a different perspective than the multitude of other Cobra book written and it corrects many of the misconceptions of the Cobra history. Ned Scudder is credited with the preface and past Cars Yeah guest Pete Brock wrote the foreword. This fantastic book is hardcover, 304 pages, and published by Dalton Watson Fine Books.
“If you have a strong interest in anything, pursue it and don’t give up.”
