12/5/23: I contacted this region's finest Cobra photographer (Bill Draffen, of Hempstead, Long Island) to capture my Silver Bullet with his camera. IMHO, even those that he had to shoot in the harsh midday sun, I think you’ll agree that Bill managed to capture this drivin’ machine in its natural glory. Craig Szambel
