Fairyhouse Car Show 2019

Every year local automotive enthusiasts put their vehicles on display at the Fairyhouse Car show.  The event is free to attend and the collection changes from year to year.  Personally I’m partial to American Muscle cars like the Chevy Impala or the Shelby GT 550 Cobra. While these pieces of Americana were not on this play this year those that were did not disappoint.  This year there was a good selection of Classic British cars to American muscle.  My personal favourites on the day where the Hooch Hauler and that Herse, when you got to go, go in style. 

A Mustang with a 428 cubic-inch V8 capable of 335 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, the 1969 Mach 1 Cobra Jet is one of the (if not the) most powerful early Mustang. The 1969 Cobra Jet is said to have matched even the 1970 Boss 302 Trans Am, which was built for the track, in its quickness. Both vehicles could go from zero to 60 in a mere 5.5 seconds. The 1969 Mach 1 Cobra Jet reached a top speed of 121 mph and included numerous visual enhancements such a matte-black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop, chrome pop-open gas cap, and chrome exhaust tips.
