Happy Birthday Cobie

Saturday 1st March 2015

AC 62 COB is one year old today. Cobie was officially first registered as a new car exactly 12 months ago today. Wow!! Doesn't time fly...

During the the past year the car has covered over 3000 miles and has been as far away as France for the Le Mans Classic, its been used for camping weekends, a track day at Donnington Park and more recently for charity rides in support of Sporting Bears Children's Charity.

Having owned a couple of classic cars for the past 11 years or so, I know that people will often come up and ask about the car or pass compliment but I can honestly say I have never experienced anything quite like the response that I have got from taking Cobie out. From youngster, through to old folk, male and female, the looks and comments have been overwhelming but they have made the two years hard work building the car so worthwhile.

To celebrate Cobie's birthday I have commissioned an original painting of the car which is due for completion today. Really excited about seeing this and will post a copy as soon as it arrives along with details of the artist.

Yesterday, I also returned with Cobie to GD to have a couple of little jobs done to get the car ready for the spring. It was good to meet up with another new builder, also called Keith. Keith is building a MK4 Jag with an LS2. He has finished the chassis and is awaiting the bodyshell which we saw in the mould. Be good to see his Old English White Cobra at a GD event this summer

Really looking forward to another year of exciting motoring - let the sunshine and the engines roar!!!
