The last couple of years at the AACA auto fair at Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, NC through the Road and Track booth, they have been gathering stories for an update of The Cobra In The Barn. Tom Cotter lives in Davidson, NC.
After you finish your documentation, you really ought to submit your story! I'll be talking to one of the AACA district officers soon. I'll see if they have contact information.
Congratulations! All of us will be taking an extra look at every used car lot when we drive by...
