Default fuel tank

BTW: that is a Mickmate special: stainless steel fuel tank to exact original specs, almost a perfect job by Nick.

Default Cobra is OK, but this is what I am PROUD of.



Nathan Norbika, adopted in Ozd, Hungary April 1998 16 months old.
He is 9 1/2 now and a great little boy.

Natasha Renata, adopted in Debrecen, Hungary October 2005 2 yrs. old.
She has only been here for a short time and already speaks very good english and is much smarter than her dad. She is a real cute little girl.

Two great Hungarian kids.

That's great! We have a couple friends who have adopted - it's special.

Here are my little underage drivers, my son Rich is 7 and Anna Grace is 3 (since were showing off most prized items and all!).

Default cute kids

Yeah, your kids are very cute. The Cobra is a distant 3rd in that race.

Your car is very nice. What color is it? I will check your gallery for additional photos.


BTW: My son was taking a test fit in the Cobra and he asked "Where does the cup holder go?" I was not sure what to say except, they did not have cup holders when Cobras were made. Later, Karl

Karl,

Not afraid of being different, I went with a 2004 Masseratti Metalic blue. I don't recall the actual "Paint Code" but came out better than expected.

Cup holders are overated - I improvised as necessary for such items. Have a great week. BTW, I was in & out of Philly a couple weeks ago - one of these days I'll plan ahead and take you up on the stop by. Later.

Default Why the 427 build?

Well, I wanted to build a 289 FIA car, that was my 1st choice. After I completed the coil spring chassis I was going to mount a FIA or 3002 body and that did not work out. Then I found a alum 427 body so I decided to complete the car as a normal 427. Regards, Karl

Default Fuel tank bracket

You are the 1st person to pick that out. I cranked on the fuel tank bracket too hard and my tack weld broke. I have all of the alum inner panels and the fuel tank in my way so I just snapped away with the camera.
I will have to fix that before it goes for paint. hahaha
Regards, Karl
