Interesting!
You will either build a cracking car (good luck with registration) or fade away when it gets too hard to keep up with your own expectations.
Letís see how that goes..

Workin on it. Still in the novice education stage going through the well worn path of dreaming, discovery, confusion, depression and then reality, followed finally by aceptance. I'm sort of between discovery and confusion at the moment with a hint of reality setting in.

I'm sure you veterans must just sigh when you read of yet another bloke like me taping into the forum full of high hopes and idea's and annoying the hell out of you all with a multitude of the 'usual questions'.

For what its worth I appreciate all your patience. I've connected with some great people and learnt a hell of a lot since joining this forum. You may well see me one day as a fellow car owner.

But for now I'll just keep annoying you as another novice on the forum

Well, when it all gets too hard I can give you advice on building your very own replica Robnell.

I do plan to visit Robnell, since it is in my neck of the woods, once this COVID stuff has run its course.

Remember, probably more than half of the Cobra replicas here in Australia are Chev powered for reasons that may not be obvious to you.

Glen couldnt agree more. Ive already highlighted this on page 4.

Pretty disrespectful some of your comments in this thread.

Let me give you some tips on the Cobra world in Australia.

Some like to build an authentic replica
Some like to build a modern version of a classic
Some enjoy cruising a cool car
Some enjoy a grumpy fast car
Some just enjoy engineering a cool car
Some want to build something themselves
Some want to buy a car and enjoy it
Some like show cars
Some want to race a car
Some want to go to car shows and enjoy other enthusiasts
Some love the social aspect of catching up with likeminded enthusiasts

We all respect each other even if we love Cobras for different reasons. The cars are cool but the friendships are even better.

I tried to give you some advice and I don't think you gave it any thought - in my opinion you just want a trophy in your garage which is fine but have some respect for others.

Good luck in your search

Indeed Ben I do appreciate your advice and certainly it is an option I am keeping open. Your comments above make perfect sense.
I'm a newbie in this world and still learning the lay of the land. Certainly don’t want to upset anyone here so apologies to all who may have had their noses put out of joint with my 'newbie comments'.

I certainly don’t want a trophy car and if I do end up with one you will see me on the road and enjoying the various fun runs with the rest of you. Then all can have a piece of me when we meet if they wish

. Then all can have a piece of me when we meet if they wish

i hear that line is getting longer with every post you make you just need to settle down a bit i was like you i wanted what i wanted i flew to 3 states looking at cars and come to realisation i would either have to settle for something less than i wanted or bite the bullet and build my own so after another trip this time to qld and stopped in at the pace factory.

i was blown away by the engineering side of there cars i had raced speedway for 30 yr sand thought i had seen it all out there with people thinking outside the box with suspension and chassis design .
my build has taken a lot longer than i planed but illness set me back a fair bit so now i just do what i can when i can and so be it when its done.

oh yeah mine has a 6 litre ls and auto six speed the purist will love that one i kinda look at it this way shellby wanted the chev over the ford that is clearly documented but gm did not want the cobra taking the glory off the corvette look how that turned out for gm in the end lol .

and in his own car he ran a auto in his super charged car. so i fig im giving him the chev heart and using a auto trans he clearly liked so if it was good enough for him thats good enough for me
maybe my car is closer to what he really wanted but couldn't have . i hope the great man is smiling from above seeing cars build 50 yrs since they were created god bless him
cheers deano bring back the biff 59 lol
