i was driving south on a main road when i saw this convertible that looked familiar.  i  was sure it was a shelby cobra, the kind of car my dad used to race in the 60’s.  so i pulled up next to this guy in his cool car and i asked him about his shelby.  after chatting at the red light, and again while driving beside eachother, he invited me and my family to this weekend’s club cobra barbeque!

my dad had a great time chatting with all the car owners.  everyone was very nice.  and i had a great time photographing these very pretty cars.

blue copyi don’t know much about these cars.  my dad raced them long before i was born.  and to be honest….after seeing the pictures of his wreck….i’m glad my mom and i weren’t there when that happened.  we would have had heart attacks!

our host let us know that all of the 20 + cars were replicas, but some people race them monthly and each car is impeccably taken care of.

“goodbear,….you’ve never posted this many pictures in a row without throwing a dog shot in there.”

oh you know me so well!  of COURSE there was a dog there.  meet murphy in her shelby cobra!

dog caragain, it was a great day.  john was really nice so i’m glad we got to chat at the stop light.  it IS ok to talk to strangers if they’re in a certain kind of car!

I like the orange one too. But I like pretty much anything if it’s orange.
