I fell in love with the Cobra when I was 10 years old.  Mom and Dad raced Formula Vees in the '60's and I watched a Cobra blow off all the Corvettes at Blackhawk Farms Raceway.  It was no contest.  It took 38 years and a very understanding wife before I had one in my garage.  I was so thrilled to finally obtain my dream car.  My wife, Peggy, even cried for me when the car was delivered.  She still catches me in the garage, sitting in my car, making "vroom-vroom" noises.  I drive the car a lot, mostly spirited cruising, road rallyes, and a few track days.  We belong to the Deep South Cobra Club and attend most of the events.  The Superformance replica is a very fine automobile.  The attention to detail, the rigid chassis, the flawless paint, the trueness to the original, supportive dealers, and especially the Superformance Cobra Owners Forum (SCOF) make this car truly special.  The brotherhood on this forum is simply amazing.  Mr. Thomas' trips and get togethers allow us to make friends all over the country and drive these wonderful cars on some of this country's most beautiful roads.  I love this little car.
