'78 Mustang Cobra II • Nick Steinhaus La Crosse, WI
Yes, it is a real Mustang Cobra II. When's the last time you saw one of these on the road? Nick Steinhaus just picked up this fairly primo '78 a few months back and hasn't had time to do much with it, but he has a perfect base to start from. The body is in great shape, which is hard to find in a Mustang II, and so is the interior. What inspired the hunt for a II? Nick's parent's had a new '78 Cobra II in the rare black with green stripes color combo, and he's always wanted to build a clone of that car. Looks like he may have picked the ideal car too; a few paint chips have revealed original green stripes under the current coat.
'64 Fairlane • Robert Lambert • Newhall, CA
With a father who handled the upholstery for many legendary race cars, Indy cars, and dragsters such as the infamous Greer, Black, and Prudhomme, it's not surprising Robert Lambert became a gearhead. He currently has 21 toys, and his latest project is what he likes to refer to as an "Ultrabolt." Thunderbolt guys don't like clones, plus Robert's Fairlane will incorporate some more up-to-date technology along with correct vintage T-bolt bits to create a car with the right look that he can actually enjoy. Who knows, it might actually outrun a real one too.
