I now officially have FIA envy... Damn you!

That has got to be almost the perfect FIA. Thanks for sharing.

Jeff, Gorgeous car. Do you know if ERA had to do any extra work on your pipes to get them to look uniform in distance from the body? Mine (on 2137) seem to hang a little lower (an inch plus?) in the front. Yours look perfect.

Yes, I asked them to get the pipes as tight as possible.

Default First time out of the nest!!

My car is going to be on display at the Hartford, CT auto show at the Connecticut Custom booth. I was there to pick up a sticky fuel pressure gauge and got to see my car out in the wild as it was being picked up for transport to the show. Not very good on the snow, we discovered!

Thanks, you are too kind. When I look at it, all I see is just another red Cobra! But it feels great to hear these compliments. Thanks to all!

BTW, I'm joining a golf club in Long Valley (which I think may qualify as "Central NJ"), so I'll be heading out Route 80 frequently next summer. Maybe we can get together sometime!

Take care,

Jeff

Default No, I didn't get to drive it...

But Doug did, and he looks pleased with his handiwork...
