Default My Snake moved today ! No,no the other Snake.

Now you guy's get your mind out of the gutter After what seems like a life time, it's now on it's final stages of completion. Today it's made it to the interior shop, with no mishap's. In fact a couple other member's showed up to help, and if you know this saying. "Leave me alone, I know what I'm doing" (F-1 hint) I had nothing to do other then stand there and take picture's Help doesn't get any better then that In fact I hadn't seen the car in the outdoors, for so long, I drove though town just to see it in the windows. Today was a milestone, in my build. I just had to post, hope you don't mind. Cheers Tom. Plus it's my 500th post Yeah!!

Hi Tom,

Congratulations, you’re getting very close now!

Sorry to hear of your picture orientation issue, I'm sure you'll get it figured soon.

You know how I feel about your car…you’ve achieved a classic sporting elegance, with a menacing appeal, nicely done.

That’s a car to turn the other direction, head for the back roads, and just keep on going!

But heck with the car, those shots of Larry are keepers! ☺

No worries. It is right side up for our friends south of the equator.

Glen, that is upside down.

Looking nice Tom! Not that far off from a drive down a country road. The weather is turning nicer, time to start packing for that long drive in the cobra to SAAC 44!

By the way, I knew what snake you were talking about because I had not read about a shipment of viagra getting hijacked...

A HUGE thanks to you Glen, maybe I did that just for you guy's down under And to the rest of you, you know how I feel, about my friends in this club. As I've mentioned to a few of our club member's over the years, I've been a member of many, many sports car club's (PCA, Jag, Z-car, Corvette, to name a few) over the years, I've never felt the fellowship, that we seem to share as a whole. No such thing as a pecking order (Porsche, Corvette) You need help, there's always a club member or three ready to help in a moment's notice. Same with me I'm here for this Club, as Brent (EM-0785) said, we're here for the long run Soon Gentleman, soon. Cheers Everyone, and Thank you, Tom. P.S. Thank you Larry & Duane for your help yesterday.

Hi,
Looks like you are ready to get it on down the road
What bumpers are you going to use?

Hi Perry, thank you for your post, as well as the rest of the group I found a "one in a million" Set of (NOS) Forged & Cast Classic Roadster Bumperettes here a couple years ago, 50 miles from my house on Craigslist. The gentleman knew they went to a Cobra, but whenever anybody called on them, the spacing was 3 1/2" bolt to bolt, so they were never sold. I just happen to call, and said I'll take them today (Thanksgiving) the guy thought I was nuts to drive down on Thanksgiving to pick up the piece's he had for years & years, till I told him how rare they were for my car. He only wanted $100 for them, I was so happy to find them, I gave him $200 Karma my friend. Cheers Tom.

It's great to see your Cobra is getting some fresh air and sun. How exciting. Next time you take a picture an easy fix is turn the camera upside down.

Love the solid color and the wheels...but what I really covet is that knock out trailer!

Thank you Tortuga, I will happily take the color & wheel's compliment, but when it comes to the trailer. A 2016 16' Aluma, Brent (EM-0785, A good friend to lend me his trailer) will take that one Will soon be a Serpent Express. Mine was still snowed in Cheers Tom.
