Now if we could only convince her to make a guest appearance at a SAAC Convention to sign copies of the poster, can you imagine the increase in attendance?  Just don't have her sit at a premier table with all those factory guys! Roll Eyes

Miss Denmark and Me

Last night at a wine tasting my wife and I sat at the counter next to other wine connoisseurs. While eating cheese and drinking wine, the lady seated next to me acquired about my phone and its size. I told her that I use the built-in-stylist to edit and photoshop pictures. I then showed her my latest photo of a Ford Torino. She replied "Is that a Cobra Jet?" I was shocked at her response, but I WAS TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY BY WHAT SHE DID NEXT. Or should I say what her husband Paul did. He pulls his phone out and shows me a picture of her as a model in 1965 wearing a checked flag dress and a black cowboy hat kneeling in front of a red Ford GT40, which ultimately became a magazine ad for Carroll Shelby racing equipment. My jaw hit the floor and I replied with about five - No Way's!
What I did next blew them away - I started laughing and pulled out my phone and showed her the same photo. It had been my phones wallpaper for months. I told her that this photo has been floating around but no one knew who the model was. Mystery solved. We laughed and exchanged stories. She is an amazing Scandinavian woman with a Danish accent and intriguing tales of Hugh Hefner, Harrison Ford and many others. As it turns out, we lives in the same neighborhood! Small world!

Probably 1967 and not 1965....Cobra logo, the valve covers, and the steering wheel...

Talked to my wife and showed her the life story of Aino Korva. She said both Aino and
Korva are Finnish names so she suggested maybe her father was Finnish or of Finnish ancestry.

The checkered flag motif also denotes the Finnish line.

Thank you folks. I'm here all week...don't forget to tip your waitress.

On the back cover of my original parts and accessories catalog, it shows "Ol Shel" with a '71 GT500 in the background.  Granted, the pic of Ms. Korva could've been taken much earlier but it raises the question: Were there various editions of this catalog or just one?

I think you mean a '69 or '70 GT500...right?

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure that's not the photo he was referring too.
Besides, that's a '71 Cobra not a GT500. Grin

 That IS worse than a '71-73 for sure.

Beg pardon!  Correct.  But, back to my question...More than one printing or just the one?

Small point of correction (I think).

Isn't that a Samurai in the photo behind the gal?

No doubt that photo was an inspiration to many of us....
