It all starts with a dream!
As I started my Shelby Cobra replica build, I quickly learned there are sites for the donor type builds, but the ground-up build isn’t very well documented. I hope my experiences will help those building their dream.
As my build progressed, I became more and more dedicated to build as close to period-correct as possible. This site documents the steps I’ve gone through as I put together my Cobra – and then it goes further as I document those changes we all get caught up in once the car is being driven.
Bottom line: these things are never done. My latest mod: Fuel Injected Weber EightStack – Real Eye Candy
Deja Vu, all over again !
My first car, HM1078 has moved to a new home and my second car, HM2023 is now out and about. The paint job is a real eye-catcher. Items I’ve learned with the second build have been incorporated into this site
Continuing the theme – “these things are never done” – how many have said “If I had it to do over” Well, I did.
A new Hurricane GenII-mod A is now up and going. Much the same car but all the little things I wish I’d done the first time. Even more Period Correct this go-round. Keep tuned for the latest.
I know, one side of the garage is my wife’s, but she allowed me this opportunity to get a shot of the sisters. She’s a great and very understanding partner.
This build site was originally “3x2CSX.com” I thought an appropriate title to a car with three two barrel carburetors. But the addition of the Weber system kind of voided that. By luck, I was able to grab a vanity plate that matched the website URL. I have transferred all the data on that original site to this one.
