About Ray
In the early to mid 60's, I was a 7 year old boy sitting at home in front of the TV, when I was drawn outside by this marvelous sound. Coming down the street was the most wonderful engine rumble that I have ever heard. Running outside, I saw my father behind the wheel of a Cobra. It was pulling into our driveway! He really wanted to buy it. Heck, I REALLY wanted him to buy it! But a wife and three children required a different car -- still a Ford -- but a station wagon.

My Dad passed away in 2001 after a battle with cancer. To the day he died, I truly believe that he wished he had bought that Cobra, even for a short time. While researching kits to buy, I would discuss the project with him. He would perk up and become the Dad that I remembered from my youth.

Now that I'm a father, I don't want to be at the end of my time saying '"coulda', woulda', shoulda', wish I hada'." So, Dad, here is our car.

“Under-steer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and over-steer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you.”
-- Jacques Schnauzee "World Famous Racecar Driver"

"If you can make black marks on a straight from the time you turn out of a corner until the braking point of the next turn, then you have enough horsepower."--Mark Donohue
