Question How many Aussies are on Club Cobra?

Hey guys, how many Aussies do you think there are on Club Cobra? Do you think we could organise something so that we can catch up at the Nationals and put some faces to some names?

Sign in Aussies so we can see you all!

Andy.

How many? Not enough!!! Certainly not enough Queenslanders.

Quality, not quantity.

Welcome Alvin, Not surprised about the delay with ya membership. After all, you do live in Melbourne.

They clock both the mail and the performance cars with a calendar down there.

Crazy mixed up place that is... Why are you lot only allowed to make right hand turns from the left lane in the city?

Welcome to the madhouse, you'll find a great amount of help here...what cobra did you get and what you going to put in it?.

You all take care

AC514, That's nasty.

But it's OK, we understand you have "Robnell issues".

Cheers

Hi Alvin,

Congratulations on getting the Cobra!!

Hi Guys check CC site daily. Been a great source of inspiration as I build my Cobra. Should be finished in time for Aussie summer(2003).

I will be at the nationals to look. Next year I will be competing.

The wait to finish the Cobra is killing me or maybe thats the Coopers I need to think things through

Regards,

Phil Neall

Default Not another one !!!

Hey Phil, good to hear from you.

We are prolly similiar in build progress to each other. I'd like to think mine will be finished at latest Chrissy this year.

I have just received some great information today from Queensland Transport which allows me a much greater choice (read ADR/pollution standards) of engine. WOOHOOOO!!

Mind you, mine WILL be a FORD!!

You all take care

Default Hey Alvin

Mate, this is DRB country up here as you prolly know. A heap of the DRB's around and some damn nice ones too.

Have you the earlier body style with the perky butt (a term learned from our Americal friends), or the later body shape?.

I have had a ride in a 347 powered DRB and it frightened me $hitle$$.

I think I left a permanent imprint of my fingerprints in his clearcoat.

You all take care
