Oh come on now. Glove box? That is just plain wrong. What's next? Portable BBQ in the 12V outlet?

I have a 12v outlet, but I need to remove the passenger seat to install the BBQ. That was a good suggestion of yours.

Everyone knows that the 12V outlet in a Cobra should be plugged with an LED Voltmeter.

Not if it was one of those George Foreman grills.

If we're talking about BBC's in Cobras, then what about non-stock paint jobs like Patrick's titanium paint with black stripes. I don't remember any "original" Cobras being painted in that color scheme.

It's not titanium; it's beige. And it was available on original Cobras. No one simply afforded themselves of that option.

I'd offer to buy her a helmet. If she doesn't accept...... well, she's just being difficult.

Wow guys ... quite a thread!

Well, I don't have any Cobra stories yet ( my ERA is still under construction ) but I do have an observation.

I think many on this forum would agree, one of the greatest car collectors of all time was Bill Harrah. For any of you that went through his collection (as I did in the early '70's) before it was broken up, can attest to the amazing quality and quantity of the cars ... all of them as best I know were 'stock' and operational. Evidently Harrah was a stickler for having each car correct.

Some of the collection still exists at the National Automobile Museum and what really caught my eye when I visited a few years ago was one of Harrah's personal cars, the 1977 Jerrari Wagoneer. He also had a Lincoln with a Chrysler motor in it, if I recall correctly.

So here is someone that clearly knows cars, can have pretty much any car in the world and chooses to have some one of a kind cars. In a similar fashion, Jay Leno certainly knows automobiles too and he has a few 'different' cars as well (the Leno Toronado for example), along with his 'correct' cars.

What's the point ... people like what they like, and sometimes the more knowledgeable the person, the more unusual the car.

Just my .02

I went through that collection many times when I would be working over in that area. Even got to know the machinists that worked on the cars and they let me sit in the GT-40 that won Le Mans in 1966. He had started collecting World War 11 fighters and such also. One he had just gotten still had grease and gunpowder on it from the firing of the machine guns and a couple of holes in it where a German fighter had shot at it. That was the greatest collection ever I think and I wish Nevada had stepped in and taken it over to keep it intact. I even rode the old two decker busses they ran downtown that had came from England. That was a great place to spend a day or two when you were there.

Never could understand that. HA!!

Peter Brock just put a LS7 in his Daytona Coupe, so consider yourself to be in rare company.

Man, this thread took a hard left turn about three or four pages ago.
