We salute all daredevils. After all they gave birth to legends, right?
Mihai Barbu is different because he is a “smart-modern-daredevil" breed. Frankly, we had no idea they were so close to us, right here in our home town.

The 10th of May 2012 was a dark day for all car enthusiasts.
Caroll Shleby, the creator of the legendary Shelby Cobra left us.
A great visionary, racing driver, for many a good friend, for Custom Cars an idol, Shelby left us with the immortal legend of Shelby cars. His figure is synonymous with the 289 and 427 Cobras, Daytona Coupe, 350 and 500KR Mustangs.
May he rest in peace!
