    Welcome Daniedp

    Another member from South Africa who was referred by "Q". Thanks for the referral "Q", and make him feel welcome. Here is what he sent me.

    Hi Ronnie

    Thanks for the acceptance,

    I have always been in love with the idea of a cobra, in 2014 my dream became a reality when I managed to acquire “the joker” as it is known in South Africa.

    When I purchased it had a 302 Holden motor in which was promptly swapped with 350 Chevy and a manual 5-speed shift and a jaguar based suspension……, although my experience with the car has been roller coaster ride I must say the sound and the experience driving it speaks for itself.

    I belong to the Cobra club of South Africa and regularly support them on club initiatives and outrides.

    About a year ago I acquired an unfinished “backdraft” project which is currently in for a paint job which should be finished in the next couple of weeks. This is when the hard work will start of putting it back together again – auto box with a 4.2 Lexus motor

    Regards

    Serious? I have to Google that word to find out what it means.

    Welcome aboard and I'm assuming that Q warned you about Nomad.

    Welcome!

    A sbc in a cobra, just as Shelby wanted (I am serious). Sounds good to me.

    And just think Kerry, if it had been a SBC, then the big block would have been the all aluminum ZL1.

    I have thought about that. A very cool combo indeed.
