    2019 London Cobra Show

    Since you love Cobras, the London Cobra Show is the place for you.

    If you have been to the show before, you know that it is the cars that bring everyone together originally, but it is the friendships and shared experiences that bring everyone back year after year.

    If you have not been before then you will meet a large group of people with varied backgrounds and stories, all having a common bond – a love of Cobras.

    If you are thinking about getting a Cobra, then the show’s vendor area is an excellent place for you to view and learn, as Factory Five Racing and most of the major replica manufacturers will have their products on display.

    Looking forward to seeing you in LONDON in 2019.

    PUT IT ON YOUR SCHEDULE - JUNE 20, 21 & 22, 2019

    Roy from Springboro
    Secretary - Ohio Cobra Club / London Cobra Show

    Roy,

    Good news and bad news - I am still attending but I will be alone and won't have my Coupe. I have been so busy with other people's cars that mine is still sitting at 95% complete. Sorry - I know you were looking forward to seeing it.

    Thx,

    Henry

    I am FINALLY going to be at THE London Cobra Show this year. I already have staff lined up to cover while I'm at THE show.
    Years ago I meet Ed Combs at the Texas Triathlon event in Texas. It was my first trip right after I had finished my car. He loaned me a set of windwings for the trip back to Maine. Promising that they would help make the trip back home to Maine more enjoyable. They did!
    Even though we kept in touch over the years, some client would have an issue, and I'd have to be in some other state when the Show was scheduled.
    The ol' Mark I will be there this year, new seats, and 200 mph red duct tape holding the fender together from her encounter with a deer.
    See you'All in London!

    Mrs. Go-Dad and I won't be able to attend because our car is not street legal yet....At least our Dark-Side MK-4 looks like a car, sounds like a car and drives really well, but don't tell the Po-Po because We Aint Legal Yet!... Shown below is the car as of last week:

    https://youtu.be/_3sLamdkIFg

    I guess it is true that the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it....I'm not happy about missing the show; however, I am happy about finally starting the body work phase of my project.

    Darn!

    I am so determined to make this THE year I finally get to THE show! I actually cleaned up the car BUT I'm going to FFR's - call it a semi open house - this weekend and expect to pickup a few bugs as passengers on the windscreen. Then head for Pittsburgh for a few days, before I head off to Ohio!
    I remember one year I actually got to sign into the show only to get a page from the office that I was needed in Little Rock.

    Not quite like the great flood but more than a gentle shower all the way across NYS BUT the little car made it and is resting now in Pittsburgh for a couple days. Then see you in LCS! I'm going to finally make it this year!

    What happened here? Any injuries or post wreck damage pics? Curious to see how it survived the impact.

    No one was hurt except the car. He need some new front suspension parts, header and side pipe, maybe more, not including his ego. It was an unfortunate accident and the first one in 19 years running.

    Just to clarify ... #98 is Elvis, my challenge car. I was next in line behind the guy that lost control ... as my good friend, Henry Renaud said “there’s no pressure on the next guy going out” !

    I took notice of you sitting in the "cattle shoot" while the accident was being attended too. Both you and your passenger did not look concerned one bit.

    Rick,

    Calm on the outside, turmoil on the inside! Thankfully, my turn out of the chute went well, along with 3 more rides I gave. Great fun!
