Talking Hallelujah Its Finished! Meet My New Cobra

Well she's finally finished! I brought her home yesterday from my mechanic and friend Fred Gimbel. I was able to do all of the chassis work, engine, transmission and brakes: and Fred did the gauges, wiring and initial start up and tuning. I put 50 Miles on it yesterday in 40 degree weather. I've got to say it is one badass machine. There's another thread on this site (What Recognition have you gotten while driving your cobra) I had to laugh to myself as I was driving it home. I didn't make it 5 miles from Fred's garage when I passed a car traveling in the opposite direction with the driver holding his arm out the window giving me a big thumbs up as he passed. I also noticed that people fairly far behind me caught up real quick to see what it was. I've never been so eager for winter to be mild and be over!

Congrats. Bundle up, cover your face to keep the frost bite from your smile, and totally enjoy.
Just remember...The car wants to kill you, if you do something stooopid.

Congrats, On getting yours done, turned out just great. Mine should be done by April (Fingers crossed) Be careful this winter, light little snake, lots and lots of horses, well you know. What a perfect Christmas gift, all the best, Tom.

Congratulations, that is a beautiful car and you are going to have a lot of fun and enjoyment with it. And get used to the thumbs up and people wanting to look at it and ask questions.

Fab looking colour, stance and presentation! Well done from London, UK. Starting my FE installation into my Autokraft Mk IV 302 later this week. Like to hear your first impressions of driving the car with the big motor.
