 Animoto video:
On the Road to Mount Bachelor in SPO1647

Above image is hotlinked to an Animoto recreation of one my exhilarating motor trips
on the road to Mount Bachelor [Cascade Range, Oregon's Deschutes National Forest].

This li'l Mount Bachelor excursion includes audio, so be sure to adjust your sound accordingly before you click on the hotlinked image above.

Note: this video will not work on some older Windows and Mac operating systems.

This serpent has always been kept in a heated garage and never been driven in adverse weather. I'm only the second owner and driver of this exceptional car; it has never been abused nor raced, and it's fitted with stone-guard/road-debris 3M protective clear film on the leading edge of the rear fenders. It's logged only just over 10,000 miles [16,000 km]. It has been maintained by Ted Taormina of Taormina Imports. One of Ted's snakes recently hit over 200 mph in the Mojave Desert!

It's titled as a 1965 Cobra replica.

I have thoroughly enjoyed owning and driving this fine little roadster. But now it's time to relinquish it to another like-minded owner. You can be assured of many adventure-filled years and miles and miles of smiles.

12 July 2017: You can mark my Viper Gray Superformance Cobra [SPO1647] SOLD! It's gone to a great guy in the U.K. For the record, this is the second time my Cobra has sold on CobraCountry: once when I purchased it, and again when I sold it! This wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for your website. You do a great job. Thank you for all your help! Regards, John Gorrell
