Just came across this interview with Bob Walker about his book called Cobra Pilote. The book is about Ed Hugus, who was the first person to race a Cobra at Le Mans in 1963.

Anyone got this book? If so, what did you think of it?

First time on the forum,
Bought the book after listening to the "Cars Yea" interview. Glad I purchased the book, has lots of interesting info about the start up of the Cobra brand and a different side of things that has not been told. If you like pictures of the era, this book has plenty. Most of all the story of Ed Hugus is very interesting and the fact that it has to do with the glory years of motor racing is a big bonus.

Thanks Dave - and welcome!
Book seemed quite pricey and I didn't want to run the risk without feedback from someone.
