I find that if you arrive in the carpark in a four wheel drift, it's hard to always line up exactly within the lines

Cheers!

I thought I would post a quick update along with some pictures. I have driven the Cobra about 750 miles already and it has been awesome!! The only issue I have had was with a pretty significant fuel leak on my original style fuel filter. I will spare you the details but let's just say, I very narrowly escaped disaster. I did not have to use my fire extinguisher, but I will take this opportunity to remind everyone that they should make sure that their fire extinguishers are properly charged and accessible should you ever need to use it. This weekend I plan on changing the oil filter and upgrading / aligning the headlights. The car has been flawless and is a testament to Craig's attention to detail and fabrication skills. Looking forward to driving it until the snow flies...

Looking nice! Fall is a great time of the year to go cruising on those winding roads with the fall colors. The red of the cobra will blend in nicely.

Good thing I didn't make it to Manchester, Kevin...they would have had to declare a tie

Unless maybe they had a prize for twins

Well, that is certainly an understatement!

A day at the beach, celebrating the 1000 mile mark on the cobra!
Enjoying the car is what it's all about.

Another trip to the beach planned for this Sunday!!! Funny to think that in a few months we will have snow on the ground. Actually, that is not funny...

What is funny is how small the Cobra looks parked to pretty much any other car. My buddy, who owns the GT500 parked next to me, told me that he can't believe I even fit in the Cobra. LOL.

What is also funny is that he could not hear the exhaust of his GT500 with me following him. Maybe the sidepipes are a little on the loud side? Sorry. Not sorry.

Thumbs up

Really beautiful! That signature lean, low, sleek shape and stance is what so many replica manufacturers got all wrong as one particular body shape was splashed and resplashed; altering the gene pool (in my less sensitive days I would've typed "polluted" ) to establish an altered standard for what a 427 Cobra should look like. It's an absolutely stunning car!
