After great consideration, I have decided to let "Bella" go to a new home. I have tremendously enjoyed owning my dream car, but in lifecomes changes in priorities. My wife has a well respected 501(c)(3) Wildlife - Waterfowl - Farm Animal Rescue and a Children's Mentoring Non-Profit in Simpsonville / Liberty, SC"Izzie's Pond"! She currently cares for over 300 injured and orphaned animals - by letting "Bella" go, she can use the funds to expand both the rescue and mentoring. GOD has a plan and we are following His lead. Currently, my wife rehabs owls, hawks, raccoons, bobcats, opossums, turkeys, emus, ostriches, geese, swans, turkeys, goats, horses, cows pigeons, doves, reptiles, quail, pheasants, deer, squirrels, chipmunks, vultures, ducks, sheep, dogs, cats, peacocks and beesamong others. We have decided that 100% of the proceeds "Bella" will go to Izzie's Pond.
"Bella" is CSX-4349an alloy (aluminum) bodied Shelby Cobra with a Shelby Signature Series 468 CID Engine. CSX-4349 was built/completed in 2004 by HRE Motorsports in Freeport, NY for the original owner - James Vandervliet of Chatham, NJ and has 2,077 pampered miles on the odometer. I became the owner on 9-4-08 after the passing of the 2nd owner. All the build documents and assembly photos are in bindersalong with the original Carroll Shelby Signed MSO. Also, "Bella" has Carroll Shelby's vibrant autograph on the glove box.

"Bella" is located in Simpsonville, SC and has been maintained by Guy Trigaux @ GTM & Son in Greenville, SC. Guy specializes in vintage Ferrari's, Pantera's and American Muscle Cars. They are available to discuss my Cobra. There has been NO accidents or paintwork.
I included a picture of the last time my daughter ("Izzie" - Isabella) and I took "Bella" for a drive. Izzie loves this car, but when asked if she would rather keep the car or help the animals. she said"help the animals". With that, the decision was made.
