    Both. Sally's was a small eating place for relaxation after a hard day of riding at the ranch.

    It's been a while since something has been posted here. I'm going to try and do a personal best with this one...

    On the weekend past, the Cobra Club of South Africa had it's annual "Poker Run". What this entails is that we all got together at an arranged starting point. From there we were given locations to drive to where we each time had to collect a single playing card. At the final stop, each driver had his "hand" to play. The highest hand being the winner on the day...



    The day started with very ominous looking clouds hanging around, but that would not stand in our way of having a bit of Cobra fun.

    The meeting point was at a well known fast food place sporting a big yellow "M". At least we could get a few hot cups of coffee to get the human engines going.

    Started with a small group.


    But it grew to 18 Cobras.


    Well, not much to see here. So we got our first card and set off to the next stop.

    Fort Klapperkop was up next. An old fort on top of a hill with a nice view over the city of Pretoria.

    In the distance, on the other side of the city, our next stop.


    The Union Building.

    And just a short while later, the Cobras were there...

    The sand stone wall made for some nice photos. So I went crazy and got individual pics of all the cars...

    Next stop was at a gas station. Where else?







    Not much going on here. Got the card and went off again.

    Final stop. GT Auto, a custom workshop in Pretoria, with a sales floor and a small pub and grill.

    "Q",

    Those are really great pictures and some really nice cars and scenery. I wish we could have a few days here that it didn't rain and we had enough people to go for a drive and do things like that. Thanks for posting all of the pictures and you have some really pretty country there.

    Some of the cars on the floor. Red seemed like a favourite colour.








    Some local talent displayed here...




    Now back to red...

    Something in silver.


    Now I'm just messing around.








    And no rain to boot. What a great day.

    As far as the best hand went, somehow the guy with the lime green Backdraft Cobra had five Aces...

    Thanks Ron. I know we have a lot of crap down here, but we also still have a lot of good things going for us.
    Being able to go for a drive in the Cobra somehow seems to blow all those other problems away.

    And blow them away you did!

    I love you and Gian's Posts, because as well as enjoying the stunning array of Snakes in your part of the world, I always come away having learned more about your stunning Country.

    You truly do reside in paradise.

    It was a dark looking day when you first got together. That may well have been enough to keep me at home.. It's great to see so many were still willing to take the risk.==)

    Some great looking cars, I'm sure they turned some heads, cruising along in a group.

    Many of them have the same characteristics, body wise, so I presume they are all the same make? I noticed a couple that had a slightly different shape then the rest. What replicas were represented in that group?

    Thanks Nomad. Appreciated.

    Bill, we were a real diverse bunch. The makes represented were Backdraft, KCC (90" by Kit Car Centre), Venom RT (92" by Kit Car Centre), Shamrock and Superformance. I'm not sure, but there might even have been a John Speed in the mix. Ford, Chevy and Lexus engines. Jaguar, BMW and factory built suspensions. It doesn't really matter. They all have the ability to bring smiles to faces.
