Default Kirkham Motorsports Annual Open House 2014!

Gents:

The annual Kirkham Motorsports Open House will be (as usual) on the Saturday before President's day...15 February. Please mark your calendars NOW! We will have LOTS of fun and FOOD to shake off the winter blues.

Open House begins at 11:00 AM and runs to 2:00 PM. What would you all like to see/hear this year?

Please let us know if you are coming so we can plan for the food and goodies!

David

Did anybody take pictures at the open house??? I would love to see them, especially if my car is in the background.

Yes pictures would be nice. I posted pages of pictures when I was there, probably 3 years ago. Someone else must have brought a camera there this year.

Was there anything new from the skunkworks?

I took some and tried to download them yesterday but the program wasn't working. Maybe it's a rights issue. If a moderator can get it fixed that would be great.

So, I was at the open house and the best part about it was a notification that Kirkham motorsports wants to go over the top to celebrate their 20 year anniversary. Something like a full day track day, a day at the shop, a 3 day road trip through the mountains or red rocks of southern utah. My question is what will it take to get as many kirkham cobras out to Salt Lake City for the event? How could we make it so aluring so as to drive as many owners out our way. We could reserve blocks of hotels in the city. We could plan a detailed tour of the Shelby collection out at the track. I bet we could get some cars out of the museum for some sort of group picture. We could have a gourmet dinner wehre we offer awards for worst sppeeding ticket, or most miles or least miles on a car or most body work since new. lots of fun potential. Perhaps Bonderant could come or Pete Brock. Perhaps Greg Miller could give a synopsis of how each cobra was acquired by Larry and came into the collection. We could do a bunch of group pictures in scenic byways of southern utah and end up in teh Zion canyon area. Is anyone intested in doing something like this next year? It will take a whole year to plan but we want it to be a true kirkham motorsports family reunion with as many kirkham cars as possible.

How about a prize for the furthest/longest distance travelled to attend?

Hmmm, I might be slightly further from the airport than you... So I might have you covered by a couple of k's.

But I'm thinking Bernie might get us both...

Here are a few pictures from the open house.
