The Simeone Museum's 2012 "Best of Britain" Exhibit (Feb 11 - 26) will feature MGs, Triumphs, and V8 cars  PeelOut Included in the latter group will be a Cobra roadster and a Sunbeam Tiger (couldn't find any further detailed listing).
This Exhibit is "added" to the already great/award winning Museum.
I don't know which Cobra will be included, the Tiger is ours - green Mk1a ("full disclosure").
The Museum is near the Philly airport - you can check the web for more info:

Thanks, Rich. Looking forward to it, and to see what other V8 cars are there.
I'm still trying to figure out how the Cobra got in ("Mfg of record" is American)...I'm thinking maybe "popularity"(?)

Went to the "Pre-opening Party" Friday night - this is a very nice Exhibit.
There are 10 cars in the "V8 section" - Cobra, Tiger, Allard, Griffith, Morgan Plus 8 & Aero 8, Triumph Stag & TR8, MG-BGT V8, and Daimler SP250 ("yeah, it's got a hemi")  Grin
The Cobra's sign says it belongs to Bill Jacobson from Wilmington.
I think we're going back on Saturday 2/18 to meet some Tiger friends and then our other "kids" can go, too.


the Museum Flickr page page has a better picture like the one right above at...
