I keep reading through threads and spotting members from illinois and searched back aways and didnt find a list anywhere of a members..
I post an thread about registering and HOTROD posted up and he lives 30 minutes away.. Suprising how close cobras are to you
I was wondering whos in my area. but if everyone checks in im sure you guys will find new neighbors..
And Even if you are thinking about buying one post up. I'm sure you could come look at some of the finished cars in the area..
Location: Wilmington IL
Status of build: starting front suspension, donor gone
Whatever else: taken 2 years to get started, but hopefully im on a roll now..
I am in Rockford and a member of the Windy City Cobra Club (WCCC). Great group and several FFR's. Went to Bryon Drags yesterday, but I went to only watch. Some 80 plus members and over 20 different brands of Cobra's. Check out Club Cobra WCCC forum for details.
I live in the sprawling Metropolis of Minooka. 13 miles west of Joliet, 6 miles west of I-80 and I-55 interchange.
Status of build:
I bought mine (MKII 4935) completed from a Navy F-18 pilot in Corpus Christi TX, in 2006. Since then I have upgraded a few thing including disc brakes, manual steering rack, and ~150 hp worth of engine upgrades. I try only to drive it during the nice weather, and work on it in the winter.
All you guys in the midst of your builds, keep it up. You can't believe the head turner that this thing is!
He who would trade a measure of freedom for a measure of security, in the end winds up with neither-Thomas Jefferson
I also live in Minooka like Snakefan. I purchased my MKII kit from a guy in Michigan (he hadn't started assembly yet). I bought it in November 2007. I have been accumulating parts since then. I have an 89 gt donor. Now I just need the time. Hope to see you on the road in the future!
keep coming out of the woodwork guys..

I'm here in Warrenville Il just north of Naperville. I know of a couple builders nearby that have not chimed in. There is a Auto-X @ Maywood park hosted by Salt Creek Sports car club on June 1st how cool would it be to have a dozen or more show up and run!!! We set up the event and will be their for sure with my non-spec challenge car.
Sunday brunch would be cool.
