Members and guests are welcome; a must for anyone considering a FF Roadster build. With Ron’s consent, this will be a tour-de-horse power – members are encouraged to drive their performance car so-as-to give his neighbors exposure to and a chance to develop an understanding of what life with a Cobra in the ‘hood will be like. Also, in attendance will be a rep for Hagerty Special Build and Collector Car insurance.
