Goodguys & Superformance to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of the Shelby Cobra at PPG Nationals

Jun 19, 2012

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and Superformance LLC are teaming up this summer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra.

To celebrate the special occasion, Superformance will present a special “Snake Pit” at the Goodguys 15th PPG Nationals July 6-8 in Columbus, Ohio.

The special parking area will be held Saturday, July 7 from 7am to noon and is exclusive to Shelby-licensed Cobras.

“Having the Shelby Cobra name associated with our biggest event of the year is a distinct pleasure,” said Goodguys President Marc Meadors in a statement released by the association. “For years, the Shelby Cobra has embodied performance and is truly a uniquely American hot rod.”

All participants who bring a Cobra to the Snake Pit will receive premier parking, a commemorative dash plaque and other goodies from Superformance.

Goodguys will also select one car from the area to represent all Cobras in the 15th PPG Nationals awards ceremony.

In addition to presenting the Snake Pit, Superformance, a manufacturer of Shelby Cobra replicas and other performance cars such as the GT40 and Corvette, will have a display on the manufacturer’s midway.

“Superformance participates with the Goodguys at this event and others throughout the year and thought that it would be great to celebrate this historic event with the enormous crowd of car enthusiasts that gather in Columbus,” said Superformance’s Todd Andrews in the Goodguys statement.
