Re: Brrooklands Double 12 - Father's Day w/e

Expect a new earlier date for the Wings and Wheels event this year as the Red Arrows are over in USA for two months.
So expect sometime in June/July.

Re: Possible Sale- Hawk 289 Cobra FIA

At the end of the day it’s worth what ever someone is prepared to pay for an unfinished project. Personally I think it’s worth a chunk more than you suggest e,g. What you have paid out. A finished car correctly registered will be around £40K so work back from that bearing in mind the extra authentic...

Re: Brooklands New Years Day

Yes, a nice drive up in company with some other classics including an AC Aceca. Kept warm surprisingly with the Irvin flying jacket. Actually a bit over warm when walking around the grounds. Didn’t like the long queue to get in. 1hr 20mins to travel less than 3 miles! Puts me off when thinking of at...

Re: Christmas

Indeed thanks Nige.
I liked your card as the picture was an FIA but don’t like the hub caps!
Not sure they had those even on thundersport racers.
I wish all the Cobrafiles a Very Happy Christmas and of course a Healthy New Year with plenty of good weather to get the Cob out for a drive.

Re: Big scale cars

Very nice. What scale is it?
What’s the power source - suitably miniaturised V8 ??
Are we tempted to say that the original car is on the left and the replica is the smaller one. :wink:

Re: Well I said I would.............

I am surprised that your steering column outer doesn’t go through the footwell as I merely reinforced the wall of the footwell where the column passes through. I think some members don’t even feel the need to do that. I admire your dedication to trying to make the car authentic looking. Ten years ag...

Re: New member from USA

Colin’s car( No52 ) is a modified Ali Kirkham 289.
If you like the Sebring style then Hawk cars can provide you with a fibre glass version looking the same as the yellow Executor.
Also seen in the club’s photos is Migge’s excellent example of a Sebring which was converted from a BRA.
