Post New/old Toy
Since gas is so cheap I figured I'd get something to burn it faster... It does it well too.

I have always wanted a cobra or a t-bucket...
This came available a few months back so we made a deal and just finally got it home.
First Blue oval in the stable. I must say I fell in love of the sound of a big block with side pipes.

Very nice car. I have always wanted one, but am afraid I am too tall for an AC cobra. Which kit is it? Looks like some one did very nice work with it.

Pete this is a Hunter kit that uses a 2x4 frame with corvette c4 front and rear suspension. I liked the independent rear suspension better than some of the kits with the solid rear axle. Hunter makes 2 models a 90" and 96" body. This is the standard 90" molded after the original 66 cobra. the 96" would fit people that are 6' or taller better. My legs just fit in this thing. I need to lose some circumference for next year to fit better :)

Once you are in it is comfortable and fun to drive...

Tom

This really is one of the nicest replica's I've seen.. It's bangin'.

Carol said nothing gets done to this until the Firebird is back on the road.

I can't argue since she left me buy it...

We don't have one at the mall until Oct. 17th now. This months was early because of the fair.

Later, Tom
