London Cobra Show
We at FormaCars have been looking forward to the London Cobra Show all year. This event is one of the largest, if not the largest, Cobra replica events in the country and it's right in our backyard in London, OH, less than 30 minutes from the FormaCars shop.
Put on by the Ohio Cobra Club, not only is it a great time with over 150 Cobras in attendance, it's a huge fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Over the years the Ohio Cobra Club has raised over $1.2 million for CF through the event and the raffling of a Cobra replica each year. This year's show raised $100,000.
In anticipation of the event, our team put in long hours getting our Mark IV complete (look for an update on it soon!) and putting the final touches on our 818S (like replacing a pair of broken drive axles. 335 WHP will do that, evidently). We loaded up both cars into our freshly wrapped trailer and arrived around 7:30 AM, setting up right across from Factory Five Racing.
The parade of Cobras arrived shortly after 9 AM and the crowds didn't let up until almost 4 PM. Our cars got a lot of attention and positive comments and inquiries on having us build one for them. It was a long and tiring day, but very rewarding to see so much enthusiasm for the fruit of our labor and to meet so many Cobra enthusiasts and future customers.
Thanks to all who stopped by, we're already looking forward to next year.
