Red 289 from Iowa in 1990ís
« on: May 12, 2020, 06:26:17 PM »
Iím looking for the current owner of a red 289 Cobra that sold out of Iowa in the 1990ís, that was previously owned and sold by Virgil Nelson then.  I came across these two Goodyear Blue Streak racing tires that were on or with the car at one time and would like to see if the current owner would want them. I donít know the CSX number.  The tires are pretty stiff and wouldnít use them other than for display.
Regards,
Chris

This must be a Chameleon Cobra, originally green, then silver, blue, red, and bare aluminum!
