This is one of the events i'm gonna miss the most....along with all the great friends i made on here......Cobra has been sold for this:

http://www.mustangmods.com/ims/u/1663/2641/104604.jpg

It was a pleasure and a privilege to have met everyone. I'll miss ya guys, but someday i may me back. Who knows?! Bought the car so i could do more with my daughter as it was too much of a PITA to put her in the Cobra. I hate putting her in the car with the smell of exhaust and tight room in the back seat. I hated to sell the car, but i had no place to keep it. I don't miss it as every time i look in my rear view mirror my daughter is right there which makes me a proud & happy papa!:thumbsup:

Don, what happened to the Fordbastards web site? Are you going on the cruise in your SHO? Just sold my '03 Cobra Vert but still have the '90 SHO that I've had for 17 years now.

Will you go down 360 to 287 over to 67 and down to Alvarado to 35W? If so you guys may run into some fordbastards headin down the same way. We're leaving around noon off Web-Lynn Rd. and 360 south this Friday.

Yeah, we are leaving tomorrow morning but not sure if it is going to rain and if so will it be worth the drive up there if it is raining. Corners,HP and rain do not mix. Man really frustrated, have waited all year for this and not sure now.

I have finally got my crap together and will meet you guys at HEB for another run. My gt is a little faster this year and a lot louder. It now sounds like a Ford. We had a lunch at the Oasis a couple of weeks ago. The parking lot was total s**t and the road in and out of the restaurant is mostly mud due to construction. I have an alternate restaurant that is closer to the water. It is Carlos and Charlies. The lot is 100% paved. Let me know on Saturday and we will go there instead.
