These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

CSX2000 making its public debut at the 1962 New York Auto Show

Like my father, I have just two emotions: Rage and Supressed Rage.

I was there. Didn't know what it was?

Look at the Weber cross ram manifold on the stand to the side of the Cobra! DCOE's?

Bob Lindauer, CSX2344, Chicago 1964. History in my older registry says he bought the car in Florida and did over 4000 miles in

one month driving to Chicago and New York for the Worlds Fair, and back to Florida, those were the days  8)

^^^^ Because we've discussed temporary license tags before:   

That's exactly the correct "paper plate" temporary that you got from a dealer when you bought a car in CA, until your metal plates arrived.

Both new and used cars (purchased from a dealer) got the paper temporaries. 

CA continued that style until around 1975 when they changed to just the "passenger-side lower windshield" location for a square paper temporary registration.

The problem with the tape-them-to-the-bumper paper plates was any sort of rain, car wash, fast speeds. etc.. quickly tore them apart.   

Probably didn't last long on Bartell's Cobra.
