Hi all.

I am new to the forum and don't have a Cobra (yet) so just learning all I can for now.
What a beautiful pair of Cobras! Is the Sebring style car also a Kirkham or an original AC please?

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.

Should consider joining the club Carjunkie, plenty of additional info and great club magazines too! Especially if you are considering building one ;)

OK thank you.
Yes the Sebring style is rather nice as there are not many around and still retains some of the subtleties' of the original car but with a little more attitude!
I am just dipping my toe in the water for now but will be happy to join the club if things get more serious :D

Hi Mark,

Beautiful roadster! Dave Wagner is a great guy. I've had several discussions with him at various SAAC events. His builds are top notch. You have a special GEM.
