HCS Back on the Road

I thought I'd post a few pictures of my 428 Cobra Jet High Country Special. I bought the car back in 2006 and haven't driven it in years. My buddy Jim Ellsworth in Ohio got her running good again and cleaned up the original paint. Car looks amazing and I'm looking forward to getting it back to California in the spring.

Wow Scott it looks fantastic! I would love to have a close up look. Unrestored cars are so special and a HCS R code unrestored car is crazy special. You should consider showing at the Tucson AZ, MCA national show in May 2017. I would be honored to judge it.

Looks great Scott! I love original paint cars. I'm sure you can't wait to get it back to sunny CA.

Hey Jon did you ever get your HCS original paint car back on the road?

Outstanding ride. I wouldn't mind checking that car out up close as well someday.
