Default Peter is back but...

I know lots of you are concerned about his health. (Covid, even after 3 shots.) He's still not completely recovered, but he's in the office (and smiling).

PLEASE DON'T CALL.
He's trying to catch up on some long-neglected work. Let him, so that he can leave early and get some extra rest.

Thanks for your concern!

Bob P.

All the best to you Peter as you get back up to speed (or "full chatter" as the Brits would say).

Your green 427Cobra street roadster with Sunburst wheels was the inspiration for my car.

Thanks for all you do for the Cobra community.

Cheers
Greg

Everyone in my family has had the latest Omicron. It's no fun, but he'll survive it. Tell him that I recommend that he add a 3% Covid surcharge to all ERAs currently in the works. That will make him feel better. I know it would make me feel better.

I just uploaded new 427 prices a couple of days ago. So you're getting your wish. I'm sure everyone will thank you.

Sorry to hear that Peter has been sick, but very glad to hear that he is getting better.

Thank you Bob, Peter and the whole Crew at ERA for the outstanding Cobras that you guys design & build and for the excellent customer service.

I'm so sorry that he got the Covid BS, but I'm so glad that he has, or is recovering. A few months ago he sold to me a set of your 289 door pockets. I haven't gotten the chance tp thank him. They came out and look great. I'll try to take some pictures and either post them here or send him a private email. I don't have one of your fine cars but I built my own, a 289 street car ( I understand I can't use the description of slabside). I don't want to be chastised buy the purists. He has always been so accommodating, and has sold me some of your fine parts over the years. Give him my very best.

I always think of Peter
When i first met him almost 17 years ago he said to me " We build the best Replicas but where not the best Replica company for everyone " I actually stole his Quote and use it on my Carpentry Remodel customers now
I know this has nothing to do with Peter getting Covid but hes a hell of a guy and hope to see him soon maybe in the Spring or Summer trip to the shop in New Britan CT
Take care Peter!

Get well soon Peter!

I was triple vaxxed and still got the one niner in December, as did my wife.

Fortunately my symptoms were mild.
