Default What is the best classic rally car?

Well, as a Chevy guy, I will have to remain objective on this one. I do not think that the Ford, Ferrari wars of the 60's have ever really even been matched. I seriously recomend if your deeply interested, further exploring the story I am about to highlight you on. It is well documented. And, one of the mechanical participants just sold at auction for just under 8 million,I think! Enzo Ferrari had a little car company in a little country called Italy. He wasn't a car manufacturer who was racing to gain market share, or set trends. He was a racer who needed funding, and sold cars to make it happen. Henry Ford Jr. (I think), took offense to the fact that this guy was winning all the races. In steps Carrol Shelby, and, the games began. Even being a Chevy guy, it brings a lump to my throat to think about it. Anyway, this was a time before power steering, and when cheating was classified as "enthusiasm" and not villianous. Racing was raw, and rough. By the time it was all over, Ferrari was owned by Ford, which is still true today. To finally answer your question, without hesitation, doubt, or resentment, I have to say the competition Cobra's, hands down. They attract an internationsl market, and numbers to match. There have been faster Chevies, and Dodges, but not at the right time, or, with quite the attitude, as those Cobra's. Hats off to Carrol.....Chuck.
