Bill's Story

"The following comments are why I chose the Hurricane and why I love it.

The Hurricane SC 427 has all the best attributes of the original Cobra, a perfect, well balanced machine reflecting style and quality.

Engine placement and engine compartment design were key factors with regards to me building a perfect replica cobra. Frame and suspension design, along with an array of high quality parts and components were key to making this machine my choice. The kit is the most complete package on the market today. An easy build guide, a great Company support system, and website were key to making my build the best it could be.

My cars performance continues to amaze me, always providing high performance and trouble free reliability.

The finished product is without question, second to none in this replica industry. I’ve attended numerous shows, rallies and cruises, HM-1072 (my Hurricane) is always well received, complimented and praised as one of the best. One question always comes up, “Is it an original Cobra” or “is it a real”? I just say “it’s a real Hurricane Cobra and it is as good as you can get” I love this little car, it’s almost more fun than I can stand‘, every time I walk into the garage where it‘s parked, I just get excited all over again.
