Recently on Sunday 16th March, i attended the Australian Grand Prix where i had the pleasure to meet Ernie and Elaine Nagamatsu who are the owners of Cobra CSX 2203 and also Old Yeller 2 which was raced by the late and great Carroll Shelby in 1960 also by Max Balchowsky, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Billy Krause, Bobby Drake and Paul O'shea. Both vehicles were on display and also raced yesterday at the Grand Prix. It was great to see these two rare race bred vehicles here in Australia and to meet these passionate owners. Also, i had the privilege to actually sit in Old Yeller 2 where Carroll Shelby and others sat, back in the early 60's. Ernie and Elaine were so friendly and kind giving their time to other interested race goers on the day. We, exchanged business cards and we also spoke about a possibility for Ernie and Elaine to return to Australia this october for the Shelby Nationals/Victorian Mustang Round-Up. It was certainly a day to remember especially for me....

Kind Regards
