During 2001, a small group of fun loving and benevolent car enthusiasts, each with a cult-like passion for the Shelby Cobra and a desire to help sick kids, joined together to form The Ohio Cobra Club.
The purpose of the club is to promulgate admiration for the Cobra Automobile, regardless of make or type; to support the City of London with the London Cobra Show and to support and raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In an effort to assist with the fundraising part of the mission, during 2006, the club attained 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
Throughout the year the club organizes social events such as club meetings, parties, dinners, cruises through various scenic areas in Ohio and helping other club members with their Cobras. Each year, a beautiful Cobra replica is raffled off as the club's main fundraiser. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by club members at car shows and events. Raffle tickets can also be purchased online.
Every year since 2005, the club has hosted the London Cobra Show. Although the show is called the London Cobra Show, or simply LCS, most of the events take place in and around Columbus, Ohio due to lodging needs in London. The show is always held in June, following the week of Father’s day, and spans the entire weekend. The main show takes place on Saturday in downtown London.
LCS is a combination of car show, social event, and charity fundraiser. Show attendees have the opportunity to see hundreds of beautifully crafted Cobras, buy t-shirts, memorabilia and visit the many vendors that exhibit at the show each year. The winning raffle ticket, that fulfills one lucky person’s dream, is drawn each year at our Saturday evening dinner.
If you love Cobras and want to help sick kids in need, come join The Ohio Cobra Club.
The Cleveland Auto Show is from February 21st through March 1st at Cleveland’s I-X Center. While visiting the auto show, don’t forget to stop by booth #302 where Ohio Cobra Club members are selling chances on winning a very special Cobra replica. Your purchase will be a WIN-WIN, either you win the Cobra or your money goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for research. REMEMBER - MONEY BUYS RESEARCH AND RESEARCH SAVES LIVES!
Attendance at this year’s show was reported to have been approximately the same number of attendees as were at last year’s show. The good news is that those working the club’s booth selling raffle tickets for our 2020 London Cobra Show’s raffle, were able to increase ticket sales by some 62% over the number of raffle tickets sold at the 2019 Pittsburgh show.
It seems that the University of Cincinnati Bearcat, Muddy from the Toledo Mud Hens, Rosie Red from the Cincinnati Reds Baseball Team and Who Dey from the Cincinnati Bengals Football Team all like Cobras. All four of them stopped by to express their love of the Cobras.
