Still have your Cobra? Yes/No

IF so, when did you last drive it?

IF no, when did you sell it?

JamesB - Yes, last summer, twice by myself...

James,

Yes.

Put about 150 miles on it this last Saturday and Sunday.

Still planning our summer cruise down the Oregon Coast on July 26. Staying overnight in Seaside and Florence.

Yes, still both of them. Not driving the street car (3904) as much but I've done 5 races with 4662 so far this season and the next one is weekend after next at PIR (Chicane Challenge). Then Rose Cup and a couple more Conference Races. May do the 8 hour endurance race in October too. If we do we will need some crew/pit people. I hope to do some street car stuff this summer with 3904. It's all lubed up and checked out and ready to go. .

Downsized and retired 5 years ago

No, I sold 6343 3 years ago. We downsized from 5 garage spaces to 2 - I had 2 TR6s, 1 MGB, and the Cobra in a 2 car garage. Daily drivers sat outside in the weather and pollen. I liquidated all 4 in 3 months.
I sure miss it, but bought a 2012 V6 Mustang convertible.
I still lurk here a couple times a week.
Thanks for asking!
