I am surprised that the Giant Steps charity does not have a link to your site cross promoting your raffle for them.

I assume that you are a different organization from Giant Steps collecting the funds to donate to them after the raffle, which is similar to how the London Cobra Club collects funds from their raffle to donate to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I would feel more comfortable buying raffle tickets from you if I knew who you were and your relationship to Giant Steps. I am familiar with the London Cobra Club and their track record of Cobra raffles and have purchased tickets from them in the past.

Club Cobra does seem like a good place to market your raffle, but the audience here is going to want more details about the car, like:

- What kind of motor is this? Original 60's Ford iron block? Modern day aluminum block? Pond? Shelby?
- The name of the engine builder
- Who put the car together? A Shelby Dealer?
- What kind of transmission? Original 4 speed top-loader? Modern day 5 or 6 speed?
- etc.

Is this the actual car pictured? If so, what is the CSX# assigned to it? Also, does the car come with a Florida title?

In your Pismo Beach Classic 2011 link, in the video there is also a white Cobra with blue stripes with a "Win A Cobra" sign on it. Is that car being raffled for another charity?

Well, I prefer red anyway. I purchased tickets for your Cobra raffle thru the paypal link: Win With A Cobra

The charity looks worthwhile. My brother's step daughter has some disabilities and enjoys riding horses.

I've asked in the other forums and here too:

Is the car new or used? How many miles?

Who was the dealer that sourced it?

Who was the builder that installed power train?

The raffle car is the red cobra. It has 100 miles on it. We have been putting a few miles on it in getting it to the events, car shows, gala dinners, etc. Its a new car for all intensive purposes. We always haul the two cobras for our displays. Two cobras always makes for a more impressive display than just one.

Thanks for your donation, Win With A Cobra

And like I said earlier, it would be nice to know who built the engine. Was it a well know shop like Keith Craft?

It would also be cool if you had a video where we could hear the engine running.

Perhaps you would like a test drive, a certificate of authenticity, and a guest appearance on Top Gear before you lay out a whopping $10 donation with a chance to win a Cobra charity car.

Well, I bet the car comes with some sort of certificate of authenticity signed by Shelby... but why would I want a guest appearance on Top Gear.

Like I said, I already made my donation. I thought my suggestions might be helpful to generate more interest in the raffle on the clubcobra forum. This thread was started on July 7th and completely ignored until I replied to it yesterday. And the only reason that I even noticed this thread was Ron closing a second thread by the same poster yesterday.

clubcobra does seem like a good place to promote this raffle. But it seems that the poster has not been effective at generating much interest here so far. For the sake of the charity, you would hope that he could sell as many tickets as possible. Maybe I should keep my mouth shut, the fewer tickets sold, increase the odds in my favor.

The cobra has the certificate of authenticity from Shelby American, Inc with Carroll's Signature. I will have to post up a youtube video of the engine sound that only a Ford FE engine can produce. You will not get the gas smell though through the internet.

The odds are very good so far. Way better than the lottery. Only $10 donation gets you in on the drawing. You have to be in it to win it. Its all for charity. A great cause. Here is a link to the Charity Giant Steps 501c(3).
