C.A.R.S. Club, or College Automotive Restoration Students, is a student led club open to any McPherson student interested in antique and collector cars. The club gives students an opportunity to get together and share their passion for automobiles outside of the classroom. Club members are able to participate in numerous events throughout the year, including car shows, cruises, travel, old car movie nights, and insider trips to museums and private collections.

The culmination of the year is the student led C.A.R.S. Show in the Spring, where students plan their own large car show unlike anything else in the area, attracting participants from around the country.

McPherson College C. A. R. S. Club is excited to announce that the Shelby Cobra CSX2409 will be featured at this years’ C. A. R. S Club Motoring Festival. There is a lot of history behind this car and it is known to be the lowest mileage Cobra in existence. The CSX2409 was built to USRRC specifications by Shelby American. It was built mainly for SCCA racing. It was originally ordered in orange, however, at the factory they decided to also add yellow stripes as a joke. This is the only orange Cobra that came from the factory.
This car was obtained for our car show through the work of Julia Berger and Sam Cotell, who both interned at the Cobra Experience this Summer.

Great job Julia Berger on your work to make this happen.

To clarify, it is CSX2409 not CSX2509 ;)

Way to go Julia!!!

AWESOME

Can you imagine getting your cobra ordered solid orange and having them add yellow stripes?

That is nice.
