Turns out I've never posted about the Bordinat Cobra before... only mentioned it in passing

After the car show circuit Ford donated it to the Henry Ford Museum, who later donated it to the Detroit Historical Society.

 Neither had enough space to keep the car on display, so it was stored inside a “car capsule” bag in an old warehouse in downtown Detroit.

it was mentioned in the book Shelby Cobra Fifty Years

and only barely mentioned in as one of the cars in long term storage

Of course, storage of a rare ol Cobra in a Detroit warehouse will result in stuff getting stolen, in this example it was the steering wheel, some hood louvers, and hood badge.

It was fixed up though, and even on display at Amelia Island for the Concours in 2012
