Here is a pic of my 1934 NC tag Im going to have on the car.
Of course I will have to use anti-theft screws on it, or it would get stolen for sure.

Its an original, thats been restored rather nicely. I had to give a hundred bucks for it. North Carolina still requires me to buy a new tag, and a new sticker each year, but I can hide it and display this one.

Some states will let you register your old one. Some states want let you restore them.

Wow, that's way cool. Never seen one like that before. Thanks for sharing.

I think I still have my Dad's '86 VA plates. Heh heh.

Yea, now if I do use it on the car, I have to worry about it being stolen. :(

People have found out how valuable they are as collectables.

8) Cool plate Cobie. It sucks that you have to worry bout someone wanting your plates. Hopefully you'll be able to keep them safe on the 34 :)




PEACE K :cheers:

Wish people would be honest and trustworthy. Sad we have to lock our doors, lock our cars, etc. :(

Thank you Blue Boy.

I received my polished Stainless 3 1/2 inch exhaust tips the other day.
Their killer! I almost bought a pair at the GoodGuys show for $120, and Im glad they didnt sell them at the show, because I found some on the inet made by Magnaflow shipped to me for $70.

That always helps.

Been having problems getting the auto tranny to shift into 3rd gear till sunday. And you will never guess what fixed it.
A small bungee cord. :D No...Im not going to leave it, I will replace it with a spring, but I was relieved to find the problem.

The transmission Im using is a overdrive unit and they require a TV cable and it wasn't closing all the way. Oh well, on to the next project.
Ah man, its to cold out there :cry: And this dang sore throat!

Thank you Lori,

The actual Cobra on wheels goes way back to the 70's when Ford built the Torino Cobras.
I can barely remember seeing a commercial on TV of those cars and they had the little Cobra burn rubber across the screen.

And avatars, well I really like yours. Makes me wanna see the rest of it though, maybe? :D

Just wanted to say I updated the pic of my '34 since my first post.

And today my Prowler taillights came.
Kinda hard to picture how they will look right now, but Ill send more pics once I have the fenders cut out and their installed.

Most guys are using leds now for that smooth modern look, but I decided I was more interested in the safety issue than looks. After all, I plan on driving this buggy. :D

Yeah, I'm sure it's going to be solid and a real looker.

Cool.

Just a note about my future new car. Im a member of a forum that has 400+ members waiting for their 2003 Mach 1 Mustang, and since its debuting at the New Your auto show, finally today a member received his.

Talk about a happy camper, and the other 400 members are on pins and needles.
But after many delays by Ford it looks like its gonna finally become a reality.
I really dont expect mine till next year, but thats fine with me. Bad time of the season to get something ya dont want to get salt and mud on it.

I have always loved Mustang and Shelbys. I missed a opportunity way back in '74 to buy a '69 Shelby GT500 for 4 thousand and now is a chance to buy a modern version of the '70 Mach 1 and this new one will smoke it. :D

Anyway today starts the beginning of 6500 guys who love a car and can't wait to get it now that they are delivering them.

Get outta here you dang cobwebs :gunna:

The only car news I have to report so far after this winter is..................in trying to make my Prowler taillights fit the 34, I broke one of the damn things.

Yep, 58 bucks just set of fire. Now I am very gun-shy about trying a new one or even worse both of them. Patience my grasshopper. :lol:

Finally have my Mach 1 VIN #

Post by Cobra » Sat Mar 22, 2003 5:05 pm

Hi Drewbacca,

I will post more pics of my ongoing 34 construction when I get the guts to work on the taillights again.

And a follow-up of the order I placed last July for a 03 Mach 1, well........I finally got my VIN # today! :D :multi: :multi: :multi:

So hopefully before the first weekend in May I plan to be in Pigeon Forge TN for the annual Mustang Club of America show and the National Street Rod Assocation's show in Knoxville too.

This will be a very late Christmas present I was telling Papa Noel about. :wink:

Vroom, vroom!!!

Very nice. I used to drive a 65 'Stang hardtop, so I have a sweet spot in my heart for Mustangs.

I'd love to see any pics you'll bring back from the car shows.

By the way, the Toronto Star up here just had a cool article on the cool cruisin' roads south of Knoxville, such as Hwy. 129, N.C. State Road 28, and Hwy. 143/165. I suppose you've already been there and done that many times, eh?

Drew,

There are a LOT of Mustang lovers out there. And thats part of the reason for its continuing growth. Have you seen the 05 concept Mustang?

Oh yes. Pics will follow, no problem.

The roads you speak of look like they are close to Fontana Village, Robbinsville & Tapaco.

I have never been to any shows in that area, but Pigeon Forge is much closer to Knoxville than they are.
The mountains here attract a lot of tourism and Asheville advertises quite often on tv. The Biltmore House is the BIG attraction and the parkway.
