Due process was repealed a long time ago LOL! (de facto if not de jure). It's overrated anyway. 1984. This coffee is double plus good...

Windy City Region SAAC / Re: Anyone still around in the Chicago area
« on: February 21, 2018, 05:20:19 AM »
8 to 10 cars would be great but my driveway is narrow though it is long.
When we hosted COCOA BBQS the Cobras got parked on the lawn and the Shelbys in the driveway or on the street. The guy up the street is a die hard Chevy drag racer (Has an original COPO Camaro he bought new in 69). He was working on the Police Departments drag car at the time so burn outs were blessed and encouraged.
California- Birthplace of car culture and the go fast crowd. Gotta love it!

8 to 10 cars would be great but my driveway is narrow though it is long.  It would be fun to terrorize my neighbors with a bunch of Shelby Mustangs.  Guy up my street is a gearhead.  Has a 50s Ford Fairlane with lake pipes red and white two tone.  I think it is a 57.  Along with and old Ford Falcon that is quite noisy.  Music to me. Horror story to others in the neighborhood perhaps.  Perhaps a venue like a park where we could spread out on the grass though I am certain palms would need to be greased for that to happen.  Food and drink?  Carroll Shelby's chili would be pretty much mandatory I submit.  Drink?  Non-alcoholic from a liability standpoint.  Illinois still has Dram Shop statutes.  Further, it is endangering to the cars therefore.  Always drive to protect the car.  That's my philosophy.  And then the side benefit is you protect yourself.

I'd be up for a show and/or drive. I have an exceedingly long driveway. Could fit about 4 to 5 cars on it in a row. I could look into hosting a Shelby party at my house on a Sunday perhaps.
I am in the western suburbs of Chicagoland.

The Lounge / Baume et Mercier Cobra watch
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:13:19 AM »
The Capeland Cobra watch has been out a while now so I was wondering if anyone here had an opinion on the quality and the style of this watch offered by Baume et Mercier.

Up For Auction / Re: Lance Reventlow's Cobra
« on: February 19, 2018, 09:47:00 PM »
That car seems to have been for sale for ever!


Its used to be in Milwaukee,  had the narrow street type flares,  narrow painted wires,  302 rebuilders engine.  guardsman blue.  no race parts on it at all Referred to by then owner Ron Ressman as " the roadster "  .

That's a little heartbreaking to read.

I saw it once at Legendary Motorcar for sale before it was known to be Lance's car from what I heard.  At that time it did not have this livery. It is truly a thing of beauty and a thing of beauty is a joy forever. So goes the poem. What a potent color scheme. I'd like to propose to it. But then would come the incessant nagging, you're not home enough. You don't drive me enough. And so the story goes.
