In 2005 I purchased my Butler Cobra on Ebay. I should say a friend bought it for me on my behalf, I never saw the listing but I bought it sight unseen as I was told "everything is there". Wow, the car of my dreams was actually a rolling chassis with some parts and only the outer shell for the body. The previous owner had removed all the inner fiberglass body panels with the intent to replace them with light weight aluminum.Well for what ever reason, that never happened. This is where I come in. The first year I spent my time going to every car show Looking for Cobras and took about 900 photos to give me ideas of whats out there, then make all the modifications I want to make this Cobra different from all the rest. It took me 2 years to complete and about 2500 hours and 900ish photos of every step of the way. With the help of a few good friends and a crash course in Fiberglass repair, I finally felt comfortable to take on this challenge. My wife didn't take a liking to the car, so it was deemed, "My Dream her nightmare" In 2008 I finished the Cobra build, and now I can take both my babies out for car cruises with the San Gabriel Valley Mustang Club!

   In the first year of being on the road, I have won 78 trophies, several of them are for Best in Show at big car shows.
