    Magazine Review Articles?

    I've been re-reviewing my Cobra books, and they have several motor magazine reviews, but I seem to remember a few (ERA reviews specifically) that I can't find in any of my books and I can't find on-line, either. Any help in finding them would be appreciated.

    One was from Hot Rod magazine that documented a 0-100-0 contest between an ERA 427 car and a few other contemporary cars. I think it was from 1987 or so?

    Another was in Motortrend (I think?) comparing the ERA to a couple other replicas and an original Cobra. This one I think had skid pad and other data.

    Thanks!
    Evan

    Evan - I think I have the Motor Trend story - not sure about the hot Rod one. If you give me a day or two I can probably find them and scan them.
    I was deplorable before deplorable was cool.

    Thanks! I looked all over ERA's site, but didn't find the links you posted. I thought Bob had more stuff archived than I could find.

    Dan,
    Thanks! I had the Amelia Island pics and Brooke’s site, but didn’t have the other one.

    Well Evan - looks like I'm going to have to dive a little deeper into my magazine collection. I know I have that ERA article somewhere but it wasn't where I first looked.

    In the meantime here are a couple somewhat more obscure magazine stories on Cobras. The 1974 Road & Track test was what cemented my early interest in a Street Roadster Cobra replica that stuck with me all these years. In 1980 I sent off and got a brochure for an ERA that I still have.

    I'll keep looking.

    Edit: well looks like these scans are way over the attachment limits so I'll have to figure out some other way to get them to you.
