April 2000

The following pictures were all taken at the UK Cobra Replica Club stand at the National Kit Car Show. The show was held on the 31st April and 1st May at the National Agricultural Showground near Stoneleigh. This is the largest kit car show in the UK and the Cobra Replica Club stand won 'Best Stand' over the two days. On the Sunday we must have had over 100 Cobras on the Club stand. It was a sight to see.

As ever there was a great variety of cobras for people the see. This helped the people who were thinking about building a replica as they could meet and talk to the owners, plus it allowed members of the club to meet and talk cars.

During the weekend we talked and attracted many new members. It was great to put a face to people I'd been talking to on the phone or by email over the past few months. Also I had the pleasure of meeting lots of new people which I hope to bump into again in the near future when they have built their dream car.
