FEATURE CAR – THE RED COBRA – A turbocharged Mod motored beast that hits with a deadly bite! In the early 2000s, “The Big Three” all had sports cars, but technically they weren’t in the same class.

Now in his late 50s, he runs as close to the streets as he can in his big block nitrous Nova, hitting most any grudge/no time/no prep event he can, and his grandson Cohen is right there by his side. “Before I knew it, 40 plus years had gone by and here I am no-prep racing!” Cunningham exclaimed.

From 1970 to 1978, the “Ford” Capri was dubbed a sport compact known as a “captive import” produced and sourced from Ford of Europe.
