    Just think how lucky we were to have lived in that time period and see those cars.

    The cars were all different with different companies/race teams taking different approaches in designing and building their cars. The rules were such you could do that, verse today where almost all race cars are cookie cutter cars.

    Thanks for sharing that video Ron.

    It had always been my dream to take a Cobra on a long road trip and I did it. We were gone a month and even my senior bride liked it. Well most of it. Going through the Stockton area when it was 105+ was not fun to her, but it was only a few hours.

    I will probably do it again if I get another Cobra. I'm guessing it will be a solo trip this time.

    Silver,

    Way back when we could get the Kit Car Builders magazine here there was a guy from Hawaii that would send his Cobra to Oakland and then come drive it via the Southern route and up the East coast and back to Oakland via the Northern route. But he had a lot more desire than I did. He posted pictures of him in the Grand Tetons and he had to chip ice off the steering wheel every morning before he could start out. Then he flew it to Europe and spend a couple of weeks driving all over there. Now those are what I call long road trips. I believe the trip here in the lower 48 he said he put just over 9,000 miles on the Cobra with all of the driving around.
