I saw some nearly flat (almost like the billet) looking torq thrust center caps with a shelby cobra logo at the nashville mustang show. Does anyone know where you can find them? I never could find the owner of the car to ask but they really looked good but I cant find anyplace that has them. Thanks

Nash,
You didn't hunt for the owner very long. And yes, they are milled from billet aluminum. Very few of them made, about 3-4 years ago the Caroll Shelby Childrens Foundation in California offered the caps for any donation of $200 or more. Go to members photos and see if this car and caps looks familiar, 6th picture down:

TransAm Racing is producing a similar cap, but does not have the Cobra logo.

That is them. Great looking car! I am suprised I didn't get a chance to meet you as I checked out your car more than once. Your car was one of my favorites in the show. I am sure that you have heard it before, but the paint job on your car really looks outstanding. Sounds like the center caps were a one time thing though.
