Cobra Make, Engine: absolute pace chassis #50 L98 & 6 speed auto
your first kit car
going thru some old photo's i come across my first kit car i bought it as a unfinished project back in 1982 and had it on the road in 12 months .yes i know i am almost embarrassed to post the pic as it was not a cobra but a purvis eureka .
i put in a 1600 twin carb vw donk out of a i think a 1976 superbug it went quite well but after blowing the engine we fitted up a turbo 12 rotary and that really made it fun to drive i had the car for a few yrs but sold it as i needed the money for my first house deposit ..
the cobra i next had i bought a paul wooley kit and had to sell that when i got divorced lol .im hoping to keep the pace for a long time lol.
ah bugga it keeps failing went i try and post the pic
a cobra is a passion anything else is just a car
i dont care what the question is .. The answer is more power!!!
