Hey everyone! My name is Scott. I purchased my 1993 Cobra on Saturday July 1, 2006. When I got home it was spewing oil from every place possibe and I am pretty sure it had a head gasket blown also. No hard feelings though, I currently have the motor on a stand in my garage and am refreshing it.

Just to head this off before it starts....(I learned the hard way on other forums), it has a 306 with an aod(stall converter and shift kit). Yes I know that cobras did not come with an aod, but a previous owner put it in and I am not going to pass up a reasonbly priced 1993 cobra that was only an hour away because of that. I also was looking for an aod fox, so it worked out nicely

I love the car, even though I did not get to drive it much. It is very clean, interior is in great shape and will be sweet once I get everthing straightened out with the motor.

Well I look forward to trying to attend some local events and be a part of the SCMC.

By the way, I noticed that one of the administrator's area code was the same as mine. Could you recommend a good machine shop in the columbia,sc area. Hopefully I can get the motor in a shop this week and have this car on the road soon!

Actually we have a bunch of Cobra Club members that have 1993 Cobras so it's not uncommon. In the Columbia we have Arthur, Jason, and Justin that own a 1993 Teal, 1993 Vibrant Red, and 1993 Black SVT Cobra respectively. They are father and sons....

We also more SC members with 93 Cobras
Rob M -Black 93 Cobra
Dewayne - Teal 93 Cobra
Kyle - -Black 93 Cobra
Chuck - Vibrant Red 93 Cobra
Shaun -Black 93 Cobra
Gary - -Black 93 Cobra

And three more in NC :thumbsup:

I don't think y'all in the minority as much as you may think you are... :rotf:

I would like to get all three colors of the '93 together for a picture. I think it would be something to have?

I'm glad to here there are quite a few 93's in the area. Once I get the car running, it would be great to get together and check out all of the cars.

Unfortunately, I found 2 cracked pistons last night. So I will be down for a little while.

What track do most of you go to around here and is it 1/4 or 1/8 mile?

Scott, come up to Winston-Salem in late August for the Parkway show, our biggest of all shows. We have a day in the spring and one in the fall at Carolina Dragway (near Aiken and North Augusta, SC). Check out the website and the forum for upcoming events.
