yes sir, my wife and I just moved here a month ago. We live in the Jamestown area of High Point. What do you have in mind, cruising??? I'm game.

Heck yea! We need to get as many snake drivers as we can together and start having some cruise-ins. We live in Eden, just north of greensboro. Any ideas?

We live just outside W-S.

Watch out for High Point though. Thanks to Mike they are really cracking down on Cobras. ;)

cool, that's a start. If we can get a group on here, maybe we can work out something.

I am game for cruising. I have passed out many of my business cards to Cobras in the Greensboro area, but have had no responses. Are you a member of the SCMC? If not, why don't you think about joining. It is a great group of people. Let me know when you are free, and if schedules permit, we can cruise in somewhere. Alan(RF Cobra) would probably be interested, too.

not a member yet. Probably will join in a few weeks. Where do you folks do your stomping in the greensboro area when you are there. My wife loves the West Wendover area. (Garden Ridge store:doh2: ) and Cracker Barrel. I really don't have a preference.

well, being new to the area, I do not know of any "cool" places. I am still finding my way around the restaurants. Speaking of W. Wendover, I work at Sam's Club there. The only downfall is that I usually work every saturday, and has been every other Sunday lately. I love bbq, and am always in search of good bbq joints to eat at. One of the club members was throwing around the idea of doing a scavenger hunt thing sometime. Sounds like it could be a fun thing for the club to do. It is, also, a great way to meet the other Cobra freaks. This club is the best thing you will find, I promise. Your membership fee is so trivial compared to the great friendships you will establish. The club founder, cobrabtn, is a really great guy, and runs a great organization. So, we would love to have you join.

Yeah, I would be glad to join in. Especially after giving mine the final break-in that it needed doing DR 4 in October. My daily commute is only about 12 miles one way and does not allow for an appropriate daily Cobra fix.

It is funny, I used to see Cobras quite often. But ever since I got one it is very rare that I see one when I am out in our area.

I had to run to the Sam's in WS one day. On the way back, I see a black Cobra vert, probably a 99, about a 1/4 mile ahead. Well, I weave in and out of traffic, to catch him, and let him see the club sticker on my side window. I think he thought I wanted to race, as he backed off big time. Whatever. I only wanted to give him a look at the club's website address.

I have just returned from the wilmington area and I didn't see a Cobra the whole 3 days I was there. Lots of V6's, gt's and fox's, but no snakes.

Well my snakes in Asheville on the weekends and most weeks I drive it to Wilmington to work. Newfoundpower and I live in the same apartment complex in Wilmington and I have only seen a few snakes here in Wilmington. If you plan on being in Wilmington post on the forums here and maybe we can hookup.

You live in Asheville and work in Wilmington? Lots of scenery between those 2 points.

@sniperfox, I ran into another Cobra owner today at work. He drives a yellow 95 convertible Cobra. Very nice car. I spoke with him for a bit, very nice guy. He is thinking of joining the club. Anyways, he told me there is a cruise in/show every thursday night in High Point on Main St. near the Sonic, in a parking lot. So, there is a start to finding something to do. Maybe we can find some more snake owners there, too.

Every thursday night? Did he say how many cruisers are usually there? It sounds good.

I don't know how true that is, especially now with it getting dark at 5:30. I am going to try and run by there tomorrow night, just to see. He said there was a whole slew of cars. He said the Corvette club in the area meets there. This is just what he was saying, so don't know the truth. I will let you know though.

Yes there is! I am a consultant and travel full time I just happen to be working in Wilmington until sometime in April '05. If you're in the area during the week give me a buzz 828-273-5650 and NewFoundPower and I will hook up with you! :D :thumbsup:

Sniperfox, definitely let us know next time you are heading down. It would be cool to meet up and maybe grab some dinner. Hooters here we come:D :D !

@cobra9793, have you ever heard of that car show every thursday in High Point, on Main St.? You are not very far away.

I've heard of it but have never been there. I think Bill Dangerfield has since he lives in High Point.

well, I called the Mike Boyle's(same name,no relation) Corvette Center in Archdale, since I was told that a lot of the Vettes from there hang out at it. He told me that is only during daylight savings time, the summer.

Wouldn't you know it. I just found out that one of my subs...who I never would have guessed it either...has a Cobra. However, not just any Cobra. It is a Saleen Cobra with the original mystic paint they used. If I remember right he said Saleen told him they only built a couple of them in the mystic that year. Funny thing was his wife found it first and took him to see it. She just told him she found another Cobra she wanted to buy (no other details) and he complained all the way over there that they already had a Cobra and he didn't want to sell it. Only took him a few seconds after seeing it to rethink his position. :)

I live only about 30mins up hwy40 in Elon(Burlington). I think I remember sitting across from nckissfan and his wife at the fall Auto Show at LMS. If ya'll come up with a cruise in or anything like that I sure wouldn't mind dropping in.
We have just started a local Mustang club in Burlington. We are trying to plan a few things. I will post them as I find out more incase any of ya'll want to come down.

Hi, I am a '98 Cobra owner, located in Greensboro. I am mostly a weekend driver, as I work in the Raleigh area and don't want to waste my baby doing a 140 miles a day going back and forth. Let me know what you are interested in....

12-22-2004, 06:59 PM
hey Johnny, what color is your snake? I work at Sam's Club on Wendover Ave. I have been looking for people to cruise with. It would be great to have you join the club.
