Smile CSX 2075 and P-1080

Hi Gt40 Forum!
I would like to introduce myself. I am Tom from Munich, Germany, proud owner of Gary Kadrmas Cobra CSX 2075 and like him my dream car is a GT40. I had a big eye on #P-1080 about two years ago but my wallet was (and at the moment still is) too small. But now owning CSX 2075 I hope it also gives me great moments to enjoy. Looking forward to being part of the GT40 community. Best Tom

I forgot to say that it is an honor for me to own Garys CSX 2075. I will carry his memory with the car and hold it high!!

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

Thanks, I am very happy to be a member!

I am trying to collect more of 2075's history especially the long term ownership of Gary Kadrmas and the first ownership of Chet McFallo.
I would appreciate it so much if anybody on the forum can help me with my search.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

yes I saw this Cobra has Retromobile, several things called me,
the rear rims with studs and a spinner, I understand, the spinner is dummy?
the hull is no longer aluminum - everyone saw fiberglass !!

for the hull I'm sure of nothing, I have not touched,
Have you had Cobra for a long time, or did you buy it at Retromobile?

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

Paul:
I am pretty sure that Gary has cared a lot about his Cobra and this makes 2075 a remarkable time capsule with a special race history.
So there should come an excuse from you in the direction of Gary who obviously was an honored member in this forum for mentioning his car to have a

"hull is no longer aluminum - everyone saw fiberglass !!"

This is just not true!!

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

Up to you, but a question looks different in my understanding.

Anyway, let's end this discussion because 2075 is above all doubts thanks to Gary Kadrmas' long term ownership!

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

May I ask the forum if anyone of you knows Gary Kadrmas' family?
I would like to get in touch with them if they'd agree.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Re: CSX 2075 and P-1080

The car in the photo looks amazing. I'm checking out the vehicles in the background as well; that's quite an array of models with some history to show for!
