Welcome to Our Garage

Daytona Coupe, 289 and 427 Cobras

Cobra Videos

This section features some of the videos that I've either managed to collect or take of our cars. I will be posting more as time permits. (A YouTube link is provided following the video title if your browser does recognize the hyperlink embedded in the video title.)

Video Links of my Daytona

The following short video clips were taken as an experiment on some of my recent drives in our area. I apologize for the quality, but they illustrate that my car is actually drivable.

The first few videos are jerky because I was only holding the camera while driving (that is why I said the it was an experiment.)

During the Sierra trip video, the camera was held in a fixed mount. It held the camera more securely, but it was  still not ideal mount. The camera is a GoPro and mounted in their standard housing. The housing significantly attenuates the great sound of the Daytona.

I am still experimenting with camera mounts and location. In the future I want to use a better camera mounting to allow me to keep both hands on the wheel and hopefully obtain better quality videos and audio of my drives.

And just so you don't have to try to count the road stripes or poles as they go by, I am obeying the posted speed limit.

The following links are to my videos currently posted on YouTube.

  3. Daytona Coupe Cobra on Altamont Pass Road

  7. Daytona Coupe Cobra to the Sierra Nevada foothills
    This is a portion of a video taken on one of our longer "test" drives. We are about one hour from home on a trip over to the Sierra Nevada foothills. Great drive, but there was a lot of traffic that day.

Video Links of other Daytonas

The following video links show are of some of the other Daytonas that have been posted on the internet.

  1. Victory By Design
    This video although still available on the internet captures some terrific sounds and scenes as one of the original coupes CSX2299 is driven around a closed public road or estate. I don't have any details of the location where the scenes were shot. Turn the sound up and sit back and listen. Music to a car guys ears.
