A 1966 Shelby 427 cobra clocks in a crisp 100 miles an hour as it pleasantly drifts down the Pacific coast highway. The utter power and control of this beast illuminate the hollow mountains radiating to the ocean where the sound waves clashed with these thunderous roars. The daylight slowly beings to fade as vibrant, beautiful shades of reds, blues, yellows, and oranges slowly dance around clashing and combining in perfect harmony. The smoothly paved highway twists and turns as the Shelby shifts gear pushing the suggested speed limit even more. Fellow drivers, now almost obsolete on this scenic highway, admiringly glare with eyes of disbelief and jealousy at this classic beauty. The driver, a retired military man, rolls down the window and breathes in a deep breath of the fresh, crisp, California air. As the heat of San Diego closes in the trip slowly comes to a close. 54 unforgettable miles lies behind this inseparable pair. However, for a classic of this level, no adventure is ever an ending.
the next stop Furka pass, Switzerland. One small issue stands in the way of this life-changing drive. One gigantic, powerful ocean. With many options, the driver of the Shelby knows the very best way to get his prized possession safely across the world. A-1 Auto Transport. Not only is this company the most reliable way to transport exotic cars, but they offer many discounts for those who served this country valiantly. For the military man behind the wheel, there is truly no other choice.

Thanks to the convenient Door-to-door shipping that A-1 offers this classic car was safely delivered to the newly rented home of the driver in the beautiful country of Switzerland. The small house rests nestled in between powering, towering mountains and incapsulating rivers that would sweep away even the strongest. As the A-1 transporters truck drives cautiously up to the modest, yet extravagant cabin a beautiful oak tree lays covering the vast yard. It provides a much-needed escape for its casual loungers that rest peacefully under its widespread branches. These towering leaves that seem to reach for not only the clouds and sky but momentously seemed to reach into the souls of those who wander underneath. As the inevitable day of the unforgettable drive closes near the Shelby gears up. The Furka pass is long, windy, but never the less, beautiful. The powerful mountains tower with grace and beauty as the paved concrete turns beneath the rubber as the car’s tires spin violently at intense speeds. A brisk 5 days go by as the Shelby makes it way through the pass with speed, yet somehow, time seems to be suspended in a sense of false sense of animation. The seemingly never-ending road, like every journey, comes to a close. The time to ship back to America has inevitably come to its time.
With a once again hustle free shipping to the military man’s home in northern Virginia the young man decides its time for a car show.
