Serious inquiries only, please!

20 May 2022: The spectacularly good photos you see on this page were captured by Bill Emerson himself. Bill met the very real challenge of capturing the essence of that metallic dark green paint in all its glory, using his slightly aging Nikon D70 DSLR digicam with its 18–55mm standard lens and a Nikon flash… AND his new Apple iPhone 13 Pro. CS Cobra gold divider bar 25 June 2022: Dear Cobra Country: Please tell Curt to mark my screamin’ mean Emerald Green drivin’ machine SOLD! After only about 10 days on your site, it went to a very lucky new owner and a new stable someplace up in Montana. I had several interested buyers, including one who intended to purchase it upon his return from vacation in Europe. Many thanks for your well justified renown for marketing these iconic musclecars!
