I was out on a walk with my sister through my favorite neighborhood in New York, the Williamsburg-Greenpoint Industrial Business Zone (where I have found many a lovely car) and I saw this Cobra replica getting a fair bit of attention in front of the Brooklyn Brewery.
There was a fashion shoot on the opposite sidewalk, with a lady strutting in front of some graffiti. I think they were missing a golden opportunity leaving that Cobra out of frame.
The ultra-wide transmission tunnel, the utilitarian gauges, and the wood wheel must have caught a lot of eyes.
And while I’m no fan of these overpowered big-block Cobras with their bulbous fenders and fish mouths, this one looked beautiful, especially along the flanks. Maybe I’ll warm to it like I did the XKE? I doubt it.
Still, a lovely find, and a car loved by all.
