Thought I would share some photos of my unbuilt Cobra model kits. I collect Cobras of all sizes and materials and have been collecting since about 1995. I have a bit over 600 as of now and often find ones I have never seen before. I hope you enjoy the pics. Thanks for looking. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Oh man, great photo. Made my heart skip a beat. The plan is to get a drivable kit car Cobra when my daughter finishes law school. Thats the plan at least. Will it happen ? Only time will tell. It is one tough car to get in and out of when your 220 lbs. Maybe I should start my diet now. Are those Factory Fives ?

Nice collection Ray, any photos available of ones you have built up?
Also, just curious, being such a die hard cobra fanatic, what do you think of the redesigned cobra Ford did in 04?
I thought it was very cool and have often thought of scratch building a scale replica of it.

I didn't care for either the "Cobra" with the Olds engine nor did I like the latest "Cobra Concept. Just didn't like the style of either of those.
