Re: T289R meeting Tues 12 Feb, 12 - 2pm

T289R members met last week, but unfortunately without their Cobras. However, there was some other nice machinery to be seen. The plan is to maybe relocate on a regular Sunday, monthly meeting, at the Donington circuit. We'll keep you informed. IMG_5884.jpg IMG_5883.jpg IMG_5881.jpg IMG_5879.jpg IMG...

Great food, fine ales and car enthusiasts! large...

Re: 289 FIA grill

Sadly, no superior knowledge, I'm just a bit more familiar with COB6008 and if what I've been told is correct. As you are no doubt aware, there were only five 289FIA (CSX) cars originally. Others have been modified during their racing lives.

Re: 289 FIA grill

Kevin's old Cobra (white) COB 6008 Was factory built to FIA spec, specified by its first owner Bruce Ropner. The car has always had the FIA style cut-back doors and wider rear arches. The front wheel arches weren't quite as narrow as the road-going cars. And, no grille. Here's a photo of it taking p...

Re: Northern Machine shops

Hi Matt, In the past, I've used Kenny at EDA (below) for dyno work on my Ford. However, he prefers Chevys.

Re: Northern Machine shops

Hi Matt,

I recently moved from Yorkshire, but I've asked a couple of my friends (one, a well-known Yorkshire-based drag racer) who I'm sure, will come up with the info you need.

I'll get back to you soon,

Phil

Re: 289 on tv

Yet another cheap TV programme to add to the thousands of other garbage productions on air. It's a crime such a nice car had to be featured in such a bad crapumnetary. The producers should be ashamed. Was the "HANK" chassis produced by the legendary Gerry Ha n kridge by any chance? This was the car ...
