Park Vista Display, lots of other Cobras.

Me and the Cobra had a great weekend at a few local car shows.

One big show was on Saturday December 14 at the Park Vista High School in Lake Worth, in support of their auto department.

The second was a cruise, not actually a show and was Caffeine and Cars in Boynton Beach.

The third was a small show held at the Pink Pony in Pompano Beach. Here are some photos on my awards from the weekend.

Dyno Testing the Cobra

I took the Cobra in for a Dyno test today at Power by the Hour Performance in Boynton Beach, FL. I was very happy with the results, was about what I expected.

Before changing the intake and carb the results were 295 RWHP. Today we got 318 RWHP which is about 10% increase in power. That means we should be pulling about 380HP and 370ft lbs torque from the motor. You generally lose between 15-20% from the motor to the rear wheels.

Here is a video of the test and the results. Click on image to enlarge.

Results from Dyno testing today: 318 RWHP and 306 ft lbs torque.

Best of Show - 65 CobraMy ’65 Cobra did it again this weekend, winning Best of Show ward for best motor at the Halloween Spooktacular Car Show at the Pink Pony, put on by Jumpin Jack Productions on Saturday, October 19.

Here is a photo of the award, my engine, and me. Below is another pic of me receiving the award by one of the Pink Pony girls dressed in skeleton outfit for Halloween.

Top 25 Award for My Cobra

Car Show to 25 Award - 65 CobraIt was a great weekend for car shows in South Florida.  I think there were about 5 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday.  We even had a short shower in the early afternoon which almost ruined the show, but we all hung in there until the end, as the showers were brief and the sun came out for rest of the day.

The show I attended was called Save the Boobies and was a fund raiser for breast cancer put on by My Candles of Hope Foundation.

The Cobra got a lot of attention and it was nice talking to so many people who love my car. Here is a photo of me and my award. I’m starting a nice collection of trophy’s, soon I will have to buy a display case for all of them.

Check back every weekend to see where I will be next.
