Finally Have the Car of Your Dreams: Build it Yourself

shelby cobra kit>Your car gets you from point A to point B. That's its purpose. You shouldn't really expect them to do anything else for you, which is fine. That's where other vehicles come in.

Classic Muscle Cars
Owning a vintage muscle car has so many advantages. It's something that not everyone does, but it's almost guaranteed that almost everyone wished they did. Unfortunately, unless you have kept your 1968 roadster in great condition over the last 48 years, attaining a classic muscle car can be pretty expensive.

There is a way to own the car of your dreams without selling your life away, however. You can actually build one yourself! Not the easiest thing in the world to do, but if you're serious about owning a classic muscle car, why not give it a try? You might end up living in a real one if you have to shell out a couple hundred grand, so smartening up and buying a muscle car kit to build your own is the way to go.

Here are a few reasons why you should build your own muscle car:

It's Been Your Dream
When you were a kid and you dreamed about having a beautiful 1962 Shelby Cobra in your own garage, you probably didn't even think about the possibility of building it yourself. You'll feel great and accomplished once you finish building the car, and then you can really take a step back and let your inner child cheer in excitement. You did it. You finally have your dream car.

Musle Car Community

If you can get away from the guys who continually grill you on every single detail of your car, guys who probably have some sort of a mullet, then you'll actually meet some pretty cool people. Vehicle appreciation is one of the main hobbies in the country, so you will surely run into a few likeminded car lovers who you can chat about your ride with.

Expand Your Automobile Knowledge
Building those model cars in your basement 30 years ago was a practice run for the adventure you are about to embark on. Building your own muscle car will teach you everything you need to know about the auto industry, and you'll even be qualified as a person who knows what they're talking about. That's all we really want in this world -- we want other car lovers to quietly say to themselves, "that person knows."

Carroll Shelby built small-block and big-block Cobras from 1962 until 1968, designing them to be "Corvette-Beaters," even though there were almost 500 pounds lighter than Corvettes and are much lighter than other roadsters that can weight up to 3,400 pounds.

You can build your very own Shelby Cobra kit car and will love the final result. The Shelby Cobra kit comes with everything that you'll need to start and finish your car-building project. Once you're finished, you'll not only have the car of your dreams, but the satisfaction that comes from knowing you did it all yourself.
