Pictures from the Car Show at the 2009 SAAC Mini Nationals held on July 3rd in the afternoon. Cars were given a police escort from Thunderhill Raceway to Sycamore Park in Willows for the Car Show. The first place winner was Gordon and Nancy Gimbel's Cobra 52 (CSX2514) , one of the factory built USRRC race cars . Also featured is Cobra 98 (CSX2196), the 427 Cobra prototype, also commonly referred to as "The Fliptop". The body was attached to the chassis so the front and back sections would flip up, thus the name "flip top". The Fliptop was built to determine the feasibility of installing the FE series engine into the Cobra. The engine initially installed was an aluminum 390 engine with 58mm Webers. This was the engine used when CSX2196 was raced at Nassau. Later on, she was fitted with a NASCAR spec 427 sideoiler. The basic chassis was a 289 chassis complete with 3" main rails and transverse leaf springs. Of course the chassis was strengthened and modified to accept the big block FE engine. The entire body on the Fliptop was replaced with a lighter skin and is said to have a total weight of 1800lbs. The Fliptop is currently owned by Rich Mason who continues to vintage race her to this day. She is now equipped with an aluminum Shelby 427.
