History of the AC COBRA Page:
- 1 January 2006:
- I am back again. Will start updating this site again so that all
information is up2date again. Hope you enjoy.
- 12 January 1997:
- Updated fast some info and press release about
the AC Car. At this moment really don't have time
to update the complete site. I am bussy with setting up my own web server
with my own domain and I hope to have everything ready in the beginning
of februari. I promisse after the change to my own domain everything will
be updated more frequently and more stuff will be added to the site. The
complete image archive will be online when my
own domain is ready.
- 04 Oktober 1996:
- It's very sad .... I have to close allmost all my images ... Bob Shaffer
gave me the opportunity to expand my image archive. He had some extra room
on his http server for me .... but his "powers" saw that half
their bandwidth was used for cobra pics :-) and they decided that Bob has
to kick me off their http server. It's a pitty, but I have to thank Bob
Shaffer for giving me room for a period of time.... and now -> Who
has space for me on his http server??? I only need 10 mb of space for cobra
pics no more ....please.. When you have just mail me quickly so I can put
the complete image archive online again.
- 23 September
- Updated the Hi-Tech page (Thanks Paul). Added also some pic's to the
image archive. I only have to update my links again and some other stuff....
hope this week I have time enough to do that.
- 20 September
- Updated the manufacturers and parts and accessories in the World pages.
What I am missing is adresses in Suisse, but maybe you know some adresses,
if that's true please e-mail me. I would like to thank all people who mailed
me all their adresses. Allmost forgot to mention, also updated the who's
- 14 August 1996:
- Added fast some adresses I got after my mailing around the world. I
hope people can mail me some more info about several adresses. Still nothing
received from some countries. But it will come.. it's vacation time.. so
who's reading his mail.
- 10 August 1996:
- Good morning, last night I finished almost the manufacturers page.
So when I woke up this morning I thought... let's finish it before you
have to go to work. So I did. Now you can see the Cobra
manufacturers in the World page. I hope you enjoy it and let me know
if there are more adresses....
- 10 August 1996:
- It is just past midnight and I have added some more pages to the Cobra
Site. I would like to thank Paul C. Ehrismann for sending me so much info
I needed again a couple of hours to put everything in html and I am still
not finished. At this moment the Magazines & Books
and Videos of the Cobra page is changed and we have a new range of
pages called Cobra parts and accessories in the World.
These pages are sorted by country. So I only have the pages and the info
for the USA and the Netherlands so I hope to get a lot of info from the
rest of the world with a lot adresses. I am still bussy with writing and
finishing the range of pages called Cobra manufacturers around the world.
Also sorted by country. And again I have only the info for the USA and
the Netherlands. Oke Cobra lovers, pick up a magazine of your country and
start typing and send me all the adresses you know in your country (cobra
adresses offcourse :-)). Almost time to go on vacation so I hope I have
some more time this last week to finish that range of pages, otherwise
you will see them about three weeks I think. I hope you enjoy all those
- 09 August 1996:
- Added finally 40 or more pic's to the image archive. I would like to
thank Eric Johnson thousand times for sending me all those photos and specially
the Signed one
by Carroll Shelby. I also corrected some html code so the site have to
be faster now. My TODO list is still not empty, so you can expect some
added stuff in the future. The Image archive is now growing very fast,
the thing I would like to know is if you like the layout or do I have to
split the pic's in groups? Let me know what you think.
- 26 Juli 1996:
- The last weeks I updated almost all my pages and I have still some
stuff to go so keep on looking on my site. I will thank Bob Shaffer for
giving me some room on his site so that's why there are almost 30 new pic's
and I am still not ready with another 40 I believe. But keep sending my
pic's. I don't know what I updated the last week so I can't name it. But
there are a lot of people added to the who's who list, a lot of new pic's
and some new links. Oya take a look at the side of Carroll Shelby he has
now his own site. That's all for today. I am still fighting with my time
so sometimes it will take a little time to update my site.
- 20 March 1996:
- I got some new pictures which you can find again in the Image
Archive. At this moment I really have a problem. My disk space on my
account is full. The new pic's are linked to another account what I have
but I don't have that much disk space left. Does anybody have a solution?
Got also some info about Cobra events. Real soon I will introduce a Cobra
Event Calender, so if you know cobra events let me know.
- 13 March 1996:
- Didn't update all thinks I got last time. I got wonderfull info of
Andy Lambert about the AC Cobra and the ACE. Thanks Andy. You really have
to take a look at it on the Articles of the Cobra
page. Did you notice the change of the title of that page. It is now Articles
of the Cobra instead of Technical articles because there isn't much technical
about it. I mentioned last time that I have a problem with disk space and
that is not at home but on the server. I have to look what I can do but
it will cost me money :-(. But I will find a way.
- 10 March 1996:
- Got a lot of pics and stories of people. My time problem is still the
issue that the page isn't updated frequently. Another problem is that my
disk space is running out of room so I have to think about that. I still
didn't update everything (but I will be soon doing that). What's updated
today: The who's who list offcourse, new links, some changes on the cobra
club page, New movie titles, some new links to other cobra pages and a
lot of new pics. Thanks everybody and keep sending all things you have.
- 27 January 1996:
- Finally is it so far. I stopped the secretary of the Cobra Club NL.
So now I have to have more time to update this site. My father took the
secr. over so we are keeping it in the family. Then I got a lot of mail
of everybody (thanks) with a lot lot info. Paul C. Ehrismann had so much
info about new books and video's that it took me a couple of hours to update
that page. So you have to take a look at the new Magazine
& Books and Video's page. Then I updated the Who's
Who list where you can find again new people owning and loving cobra's.
Racihemi sent me a very interesting article. READ THIS The
Mobra Story it's never been released. Paul Blore sent me a lot of info
about the Hi-Tech cobra what you can find on the technical
articles page. And of course I got new images. Look for the new AC
pictures they are really beautifull. You can find them in the Image
Archive. I almost forgot the new links you can find on the next to
pages: Cobra links, other
- 02 January 1996:
- First of all I would like to say "A happy new year" to all.
And with a new year, you have to start it right. So the last weeks I got
8 pics!! Yes, Yes, Yes, and now you can see them in the Image
Archive. Added two people to the Who's Who list.

- 15 July 1995:
- It took some time till I added some info to the Cobra site because
I was very bussy with setting up a complete different site. But I got a
lot of Cobra mail, Cobra pictures, Cobra info. So I added some people to
the Who's Who list and there are again more
pictures available in the image archive. Got also
some extra historical info of Caroll Shelby which I added to the history
of the man behind the Cobra, Carroll Shelby. Miles D. was so active
that he wrote a technical article about the
engines of the Cobra.
- 03 July 1995:
- After a lot of typing I finally made it, the
history of the man behind the Cobra, Carroll Shelby, is online. There
are also more Cobra people on the net, then you would think, you can find
them on the Who's Who list. Earnest Henderson
sent me a picture of his Cobra and a picture of a very beautifull poster,
you can find those pictures in the image archive.
