427SC Cobra replica by JCF (John’s Custom Fabrication). DuPont Wimbledon White/metallic Mediterranean Blue LeMans stripes.

I purchased this fine serpent off of Cobra Country 11 years ago: it was one of the most rewarding car buys I’ve made to date (and I’ve made a bunch of drivin’ machine purchases). I’m parting with it only to facilitate my purchase of a second (vacation) home up at Lake Tahoe.

She had logged only 8,000 miles [<13,000 km] and in over 11 years, I’ve added another 7,000 miles of driving adventures.

Tracked on only one occasion (at Willow Springs), to give it an opportunity to run free just once, and on Willow’s splendid road course. Exhilarating.
