Ohio Cobra Club

In 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 (OCC).

CFF.ORGThe purpose of the club is to promulgate admiration for the Shelby Cobra sportscars, regardless of manufacturer 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 CFF fundraising part of the mission, in 2006, the club attained 501(c)(3) non-profit status from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) as a nonprofit charitable organization – EIN #20-2462827. The club is also registered with the State of Ohio as The Ohio Cobra Club, Inc.

About the club

Throughout the year the club organizes social events such as club meetings, parties, dinners, cruises through various scenic areas in Ohio, as well as helping other club members with their Cobras.

Each year, the club sponsors the London Cobra Show, where a beautiful Cobra replica is given away as a sweepstakes grand prize as the club's main CFF fundraiser. Sweepstakes chances are $20 each and can be purchased by club members at various area car shows and events. The net proceeds from the London Cobra Show and are always donated to the CFF for research into finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.

London Cobra Show

London Cobra Show WebsiteThe club has hosted the London Cobra Show since 2005. Although the show itself is called the London Cobra Show, or simply LCS, most of the events take place in and around Columbus, Ohio due to lack of 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 portion of the show takes place Saturday on London's Main Street.

LCS is a combination car show, social event, and charity sweepstakes fundraiser. Show attendees and visitors have the opportunity to view hundreds of beautifully crafted Cobras, speak with their owners, purchase T-shirts, memorabilia, Cobra sweepstakes tickets, as well as visit with the many vendors that will be displaying their products at the show.

The yearly donation to CFF is presented to representatives of the Foundation, and the winning sweepstakes ticket, that fulfills one lucky person's dream, is drawn each year at the LCS Saturday evening dinner.

Over the years, the London Cobra Show has allowed the Ohio Cobra Club to donate over $2 million to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
