In late 2004, I saw a Dream Car Garage TV program that featured the Superformance Cobras at the factory in South Africa.  They said they were built using all new parts, trying to keep them as close to the originals as possible, and having all new technology.  It showed the craftsmanship and the testing.  I thought it would be great fun to have instead of an older, restored car. We found the listing for the nearest dealer on the website and soon received some information with a DVD from Ross, Ohio. Shortly after that I was hospitalized so my plans were put on hold. During the Summer of 2005, while recooperating, I received a call from Dynamic Motor Sports inviting me to visit the dealership and test drive.  My wife says that from then on there was no saying "no".  Then we went to London, Ohio, where I could investigate each manufacturer and each detail up close.  I always came back to the choice of the Superformance.  In February, 2007, we placed the order and began working with Performance Engineering on the engine details.  I never looked back and have no regrets.  We love all the car shows and cruises and have a wall full of trophies.  It has been nothing but lots of fun ever since we picked up #2628 in July, 2007.
