    Not a show, but just a few pics from the Cobra vs Lumina Club shootout at the Midvaal Raceway, this past Saturday.









    The Flying Bams (Neels and Janet) were there as well, together with Flip and Fred Cobra (also a member here)

    I finally had a chance to meet up and chat with Fred (FredCobra member here) and had a look at his Cobra build. The photos may not show it, but Fred has done an amazing job building his Cobra. He has hundreds of hours just in the body work alone, and his attention to detail is truly remarkable. Fred hasn't posted much, but hopefully he might still.

    Here are a few pics I was able to take of his car with the crappy cellphone camera. Sorry for the photo quality. Fred only needs to paint the car but he is still deciding whether he will try himself or outsource it to a paint shop. He say's he has decided on the classic metallic blue and white stripes. Can't wait to see it painted...




    A sneak preview of the color Fred has decided to go with...



    A very "healthy" 351C. If you're wondering, yes he has an electric water pump installed




    Fred's mascot for the day...

    They seem very well Ron. I didn't ask, and they didn't say......

    Fred's cobra is really nice and that color is going to really look good. The 351C is a good engine and I wish I had gone with the electric water pump. After all that does save more horsepower than you might think.

    Thanks Gian, it was nice to see yourself and Q again. And yes after years and years of building she is on the road. Still sorting out some small problems and doing mods here and there. Someone once told me I will never finish as I enjoy building too much

    Fred,

    That someone must have had a Cobra also. I don't think that you ever get completely finished on these cars but yours is really going to be a beauty.

    Fred,

    It's good to hear from you. You are now in the *refinement" stage.

    I'm still trying to wrap my head around there being a "Cobra and Lumina Club"! Kinda like a "Ferrari and Skoda Rapid Club"?

    Evan,

    I'm not sure what the "Lumina's" you are referring to in the US look like. Out here, it is the Australian 'Holden' marque that is re-branded under the Chevrolet name. They are generally all 5.7 or 6.0 liter Chevy LS motor powered, and some of them have supercharged and twin turbo'd assistance. Definitely not to be underestimated in terms of their performance, as was seen on the weekend. They are also quite desirable in our neck of the woods.

    The shootout is hosted as a 'combined-club' event in order to share the cost of using the track for the day. Most clubs wouldn't be able to host such a track event on their own, so it's a nice way of spreading the financial cost in order for the club members to have an opportunity to race their cars on a race track.

    They come in UTE and sedan variants.

    Interesting. In the US Chevy Luminas are moderately priced mild sedans. Learned something new today!
