I think this cobra was spotted at LMC not long ago.

I don't think LMC has this one. It was in Germany ten years ago, and the European Registrar is looking for it. It'll show up before long.

Could be I ran into the past owner, if the name is true on the cobraforum in Germany. He used to have a 65 GT350 as well. Invited me a decade or more ago to see his garage and mentioned a Cobra. Will dig further.

I browsed my accessible files, actually mixed that name up with another guy with a similar name, who unfortunately died early around 2004.

Still I remember having had a phone call from that past owner of the a.m. Cobra 15-20 years ago. Could be I have a phone number somewhere, but that takes extra  research in my cellar:-)

If you - Ned - want to dig for him, Craig Conley might have met him while being in Germany. I think he was one of the more relevant guys who helped him to find stuff and traces of 5R107.

It's CSX2238, last recorded owner Dr Jochen Wei▀haupt. I'll try to track him down again; Lorne Samaha was in touch with me early in 2013, but my then enquiries weren't fruitful.

Just to set my above post straight, my memory failed. The other guy I meant was a different Mr. Weissxxxx with 2 other Shelbys, that have been sold meanwhile, not the Dr. Jochen Weishaupt.
So sorry, no records in my 25 years records from that past Cobra owner.
