Above: Factory Five customer Garry Bopp’s beautiful blue Challenge Car (licensed for the street) is just one of over 200 hand-built customs en route to the annual London Cobra Show (LCS).
This show is the largest gathering of Cobra replicas, and the multi-day event culminates with a huge Saturday cruise-in to the small town of London, OH followed by a Saturday night awards banquet where one lucky winner will be drawn to win a Cobra. I am on my way out to the show tomorrow night, and will be on Main Street in London with the Factory Five rig and five of our best cars. Hope to see you there!
The Factory Five rig is on the highway right now heading west to Ohio.

The London Cobra Show is hosted by the Ohio Cobra Club and the multi-day event includes a track day at mid-Ohio (above) with the main event being the Saturday Main Street Cruise-In.

Last year, the Ohio Cobra Club donated $125,000 (!) to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Ohio Cobra Club has raised over $1,000,000 (!!) for the CFF.
