Urban legend is there are an original 289 and 427 two miles from me.

I've never seen them.

Gentry and Unique are both closeby.

That's a great shot! Doesn't surprise me that there would be Cobra's there, since the famous motorcycle race was there. Cheers, Dennis

Looks like a "Little Girl" driving?? Maybe Dad in the pass. seat? People there are dressed up like a Sunday Church service, I bet when the Cobra fired up, it brought the "Flock" outside to worship the HP Gods Please, no offense given.

Interesting pic. I wonder which replica it is?

The side pipes exit too far back on the body and appear to have two smaller diameter turndowns in each side. I don't believe wire wheels were ever offered on a car with side pipes. Additionally the car appears to have a wheel base that is longer than a 'normal' Cobra.

I don't know Ed, those other cars look vintage correct 62-65,66. Looks like a Mk.2 with weird side pipes

It's a 289 Cobra with aftermarket pipes. Cobras back then were just another sports car - albeit a little pricey - and owners didn't care as much as today's collectors and enthusiasts do about keeping them original and unmodified.
