MY MATE ROBSTER IS IN THE PROCESS OF RESTORING AND REBUILDING ONE OF THE TOUGHEST KIT COBRA'S EVER MADE . . . . HE'S ANOTHER GUY WHO'S BEEN AN ENORMOUS INFLUENCE AND INSPIRATION TO ME OVER THE LAST THIRTY YEARS . . . . RESTORED MY LC GTR TORANA BACK IN THE EIGHTIES, WRENCHED ON MY F-TRUCK, ZC FAIRLANE AND VALIANT . . . . PLAYED TRUMPET IN A BAND WITH ME FOR FIVE YEARS, LOVES THE WORD 'UNDERPANTS' . . . . LEGIT SUPER DUDE.
The Big Robster, all 6'7" of him, is one multi talented mofo, another of those guys who can seemingly turn his hand to anything and come away with results most excellent, from doing ground up restos on genuine AC Cobras, uber expert on Vettes and glasswork, Lotus Elans, big muscle Mopars, Chevs, Goats, Fords, all the great Aussie muscle cars, fuel injection specialist te numero uno, drummer, trumpeter, photographer, motorcycle nutter, father, husband and one insanely funny bastard with a propensity for telling kickarse yarns like no other . . . . one of those guys it's always a pleasure to be around, takes the time to explain shit if you're keen to learn, calls a spade a shovel and doesn't cop shit from wankers, gotta love a bloke with 110% integrity . . . . I'll keep you up to speed with how he's progressing with this project, a 427 equipped 'Autokraft' Cobra as featured in the below article, should be an absolute killer . . . . underpants all over the world.
