Complete and attended our first car show

Well after two years and 2 weeks from the date I placed the order for the cobra it is done. It will never truly be done because I will always tweak it, but for now, its done.

This has been an incredible adventure, one I would do over in a heart beat. So many people helped, supported and encouraged, so thank you!

This weekend was the Seaside Cruisers car show in Qualicum. Tony and I drove up on Friday, he was in my regular car and I was in the Cobra. The car worked perfectly and we got there in good time. I have to admit I was quite apprehensive about it, but it was excellent.

The car show has about 600 cars. Friday night was a car cruise around Parksville and Qualicum. It was like a parade because there were hundreds of people lining the streets, cheering and taking pictures.

Sunday was the show and shine. About 25,000 people attended apparently. I think half of them took pictures of the car. There was always people standing around, asking questions, taking pictures.

I also got to meet some great people. Some that have helped me along the way with questions on car forums and some that are islanders that are currently building a car, or wanting to build a Factory Five Cobra.

Coming home we drove down with a friend who also has a cobra, in fact the one that inspired me to actually purchase mine. Both cars worked flawlessly and we had a great drive in the sunshine. Lots of looks from people, honking and thumbs up.

We took lots of gopro footage and pictures, so will get some of that together and upload it in a week or two. Here are a few pictures in the driveway.
