A Brief History of the Club...

GLCC started out with 7 Cobra owners informally gathering at the 1997 Woodward Dream Cruise.  Fast forward...GLCC has grown to well over 100 members providing many opportunities to drive our Cobras and make new and lasting friendships! Our Founders, the Anway's and Lentz's can be credited with the inception of and creating the movement behind this great Club!

At our early beginnings in the summer of 1997 we had no idea as to the real interest of the legendary AC Cobra. Throughout the next year we met up with a good number of Cobra enthusiasts. As we went to more and more cruises and gatherings we were seeing more and more Cobras driving the streets and congregating at local shows. 

The Woodward Dream Cruise became the biggest of these events for car enthusiasts of all kinds, and of course our newly formed club. At the 1998 Woodward Dream Cruise we had 23 Cobras. We met at what would become our annual spot, dubbed the Snake Pit or Cobra Alley, for the massive car show in Birmingham, Michigan on Hazel Street. For a brief time we called the group the Southeast Michigan Cobra Replica Owners Association. After some time we changed the name to Southeast Michigan Cobra Motorsports Association to include would-be builders and enthusiasts as well. 

We grew from the 23 cobras at the WWDC in '98 to 43 the next year. By 2001 we had an attendance of nearly 70 Cobras.

In April of 2001, with the help of other Cobra owners, we formed what is now known as the Great Lakes Cobra Club. The next year in 2002 we brought together 87 Cobras at the Snake Pit on Hazel Street. By this time we had members coming from not only all over Michigan, but also in parts of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. 

If you have a Cobra replica or original, or are just interested in these amazing street machines, we encourage you to come to one of our events and see what we're all about.
