New Owners welcome BBQ was held by COCOA on Saturday March 14, 2009. Cobra and Mustang owners met at Main Place Mall in Orange California and then departed for a drive through Southern California. Soon it was time for refreshments which were at Tom’s farms. This is a quant stop with farm stalls and an outdoor seating area. Later the drive continued on 215 freeways heading towards San Diego, and then bypassing the Otego highway to reach the PCH beach cities. Harpoon Harries at Dana Point was the next pit stop before the drive to Exotic Auto and the Club house for the Club BBQ. Next was the black glove car show with awards being presented for numerous categories? The Superformance GT40 won a trophy for the MEANEST.
