Jason.... My sister's 3 cylinder Charade would have done well with a bit of aero-assistance. She killed it another way - played the old "let's see how far an engine goes without water" game.

Bernie - the genuine 427 up here that you mentioned was actually rebiult in South Australia before being driven back up to Queensland. The car hit a crow on the highway and smashed the windscreen halfway up here. Quite a way to run in a newly rebuilt $700,000 car

Les - I apologise profusely for my use of words of more than two syllables.

Like I said - I missed the Aussie contingent in Ohio this year. And I reckon most Cobra owners, from Oz or wherever, probably deserve the title of "delinquent". LOL

Wilf - I'd be guessing that at the very least, there'll be 5 or 6 guys flying over. I'm excited about the thought of shipping 3 or 4 cars over with us, subject to finalising a sponsorship deal through one or more auto-related companies over here. Preliminary talks were encouraging, but the reality is that it's probably a 50% chance at the moment.

The long distance Cobra awards would be a shoe-in then!
