Hello to all fellow Cobra enthusiasts,

My name is James and I have FFR plans. I am a full time teacher and weekend furniture maker. I am currently in the works with planning and permits for a detached garage to build my FFR. (The wife is on Board, and that is important.) It has been a long time dream and I am lucky to have an opportunity make this happen.

I look forward to learning and meeting with fellow enthusiasts; though your Saturday meet ups will be difficult; for in preparation for the build I am reeducating myself with, “Engines Theory and Maintenance” a class at NOVA which fills my Saturdays. Good class.

My last real engine/car work was with my old 66 Mustang(high school) and my 87 Dodge Truck, I am noticing things have changed a bit(My current car is a 2008 Chrysler 300C which I have not really touched…except tie-rods and breaks.) Most of my experience is with general maintenance and simple parts replacement.

Thanks to all in advance, I already have tons of questions and ideas, but god willing there is time.

Thank you,

James K.

Welcome to the club James. Your background will give you a leg up on a lot of builders. For a lot of guys, building their car was their first at building anything. The engine can be a simple as the one in your '66 or as complicated as the current stuff. Your NOVA classes will be necessary for the latter!

Welcome! Let me know if you want use of a free engine crane. I have the CACC engine crane in my garage and it's free to anyone who wants to use it.

Thanks all for the welcome. I look foward to seeing some of your cars, particularly the FFR's. I have looked but may have missed it; are there times where we you all meet other than saturday mormings?

Take care all, happy driving.

Thanks,

James

Great group of guys here... very smart.
Are you sure you posted this on the right forum? ;D

James - saturday mornings are the usual (Sundays for the MD crowd). Any other get-togethers will probably be posted here on the forum.
