I was just going through my work computer and trying to organize some of my photos that I have in folders all over the place. I crossed a folder labeled CSX2208. I had been corresponding with Lee about gauges and he had sent me these 2 photos from back in the day. I can't recall when or where they were taken, but I'm guessing some of you will know. It's alway great to see the period pictures of the cars, so I thought I would share them with you to enjoy and figure out which cars are pictured-

Great images, I like the snow tires on the '68 in the second image.

I had Mohawks on 4201, unfortunately no pictures.

My guess for first picture is a Cobra Club meet.

The top picture is at Mark Bucheim's place in Sparta, NJ. It is 1975 or 76 and is a Cobra Club meeting. I was there but not in the picture.

Lee is in the back with the glasses and the green 289 is his. The blue S/C is Geof Howards (CSX3045).

The blue 289 with side pipes is Ken Eber's and he is sitting on the wall next to blonde Vicki Howard. He has the plaid pants on and has his back to the photographer.

The silver 289 is Ned Scudders.

The blue fender poking out is Bucheims 427. I think CSX3121?


The picture of the two black 289 Cobras was earlier. Probably the year before. The red GT350 vert is Geof Howards also. I don't know who the Cobras belonged to. I was not there that day.

The time and place are correct, but the silver 289 isn't mine. It has NY plates on it; mine had NJ tags at that point.

Hum? Sorry Ned, didn't look at the license plates. Maybe Wade Hoyt's car? I do remember your's were dealer plates also, right? Bob Krause's 289 was parked in the street in front of the house. All things considered, I got most of it right but wish I could remember where I put my keys this morning? I hate when I find them in the refrigerator.  Grin

Who's 289s are in the other picture? Was one, Karl Gross'? Didn't Angellari's green 289 show up that day also?

Hard to imagine these cars were driven in the snow.  Grin

A set of dedicated snow tires(not all-seasons), some practiced snow driving skills,  and a smooth light touch on the loud pedal gets you home on a winters day.
My wife and I used a 68 Mustang convertible for 5 years as a daily driver in South central Pennsylvania. Yeah five winters are tough on a Mustang but they're meant to drive -not worship. It now needs a moderate restoration with fresh quarters all around. You know that going in but you enjoyed driving it for all those thousands of miles.

Ice storms were even worse, KR convertible weighed 2100 lbs. on front axle, only 1700 on rear. I remember putting 4201 in gear and getting out to push the car to get it rolling. Then stopping for nothing until I did a 180 going down hill, then parked it in a farmer driveway. I asked him if I could leave it there for a while? He said, "Fine, I'm not going anywhere today." The wisdom of youth!

Factory Five in the snow, now that's a different story. Grin

The comp fenders on the 427 Cobras were the best for snow chains. Lots of room.
