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.
Iceburgh, the mascot of the Pittsburgh Penguins National Hockey League team, as well as a President Lincoln imitator, stopped by our display at the show. In addition, George was live, on KDKA radio Sunday afternoon, and was able to discuss LCS, our websites and Cobras in general with a Pittsburgh radio personality for some 15 minutes or so.
We are pleased to announce the London Cobra Show will again offer a track day at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, in Lexington, OH. Due to Mid-Ohio being exceptionally busy with several new events that require them to make physical changes to the road course and infield this year’s track day will be a single day event on Wednesday, June 19th.
The 2019 LCS raffle car was on display and we sold raffle tickets at the Greater Toledo Auto Show at the SeaGate Convention on February 7th– 10th. However, the ticket sales were down slightly from the 2018 show.
Mr. Red, the mascot of the Cincinnati Reds Baseball Club claims this was the best-looking automobile at the recent Cincinnati Auto show. He said he hopes we sell lots of tickets and ticket sales were up around 13% from last year’s show.
