Retired Medical Equipment Technician that has been a "hack" with cars as long as I can remember.

Life has been one twist after another for the last 15 yrs. My 1st ride was in an original BRG 427 street cobra in 1970. Had the bug for one ever since. For my 60th BD, my wife rented an FFR Cobra for a day for me (She sent me to a Bondurant Racing school for my 50th).


That gave me the bug. But the FFR car as well as most others were a bit short in leg room for my 6' 2" frame.

I came across an unfinished 1990 Classic Cobra 427 kit. Towed it home in 2014 and until recently have not really had a chance to finish it.

As found in a garage near O'Hare.

Hoping by summer to have it on the road. It has a 90 5.0HO w/TFS alum heads (ported), extrude honed lower w/JEGS/CarTech upper, T5Z trans and 5 pin halibrand style wheels to go on. Plan on Viking Blue paint with tan interior.
