Default Another enjoyable London Cobra Show

Although the weather tried to discourage us, most of us proved how dauntless we can be as we made our way through some weather on Thursday and part of Friday. Saturday was beautiful, though and the show went nicely. The weather for the drive home on Sunday was just gorgeous.

The speakers at the banquet were quite interesting and it was a great moment when the Ohio Cobra Club presented the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with a check for $104,000. Over the years, the London Cobra Show has generated over $1.3 million for CF.

A lucky raffle winner got a stunning brand new Backdraft and next year's incredible raffle car was unveiled.

It was great to see a lot of old friends and to make new ones. If you haven't been to a London Cobra Show, it definitely belongs on your list of things to do.


Thanks to the Ohio Cobra Club and others who put in many long hours of work to make this show a huge success.

Yes a must do bucket list thing


And the burn out rides down Main St London. This year they gave 409 rides at $10 each. I talked to one woman would rode four times.


A huge thanks to all the people who work so hard all year long to make this event happen to perfection.


Great speakers this year.


Only thing wrong was I did not win the raffle car, again!

But there is next year.

It sounds as if the weather wasn't quite as bad as many had feared it would be. And it sure sounds as if you had a great time. I wish I could attend the event but that isn't likely to happen.

Thursday's downpour made us really fearful for the weekend show. Aside from a few sprinkles, Saturday was fantastic!

Great speakers, and big contribution to CF. Proud to be a member of Ohio Cobra Club.

Hope to meet more new friends next year.

From the description given at the show, it's a Factory Five Mark 4. It's being built by a group called FormaCars in Columbus. Coyote motor with traction control, heat, air conditioning, and even heated seats. I got a good look at the car and there is technology in there like no other replica you've seen. The team that built the car is over the top with quality and technology. It's Silver, with Black stripes and a nice subtle red strip right down the middle. A great car for a buckeye fan like myself. It's going to sell a ton of tickets and I'd imagine next years check might be the biggest yet.

Pictures of the event would be greatly appreciated, I could see myself attending a future event.
