What are your main interests?
Wicked Effects Car Club of Boyertown, PA was created in the late 2007 season by Owner Andrew Bealer. The main goal in creating the club was to have an inexpensive, laid back, enjoyable club that allowed the members to partake in a club environment but also have a life outside the organization. We have a very diverse crowd in the club and even more diverse rides from classics, muscle cars, street rods, trucks, imports, motorcycles, and full out drag cars. As our club grew we added more structure and organization. Starting in 2009 we began to hold our "Fight for the Cure" Car Shows in which we raise money for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cancer Unit. These shows which are based in the Pottstown, PA area have some of the lowest registration fees around to accomidate all car entusiasts and gives all participants a chance for one of our many trophies, whether it be for street rods, pro streets, trucks, bikes, or even daily drivers and works in progress. As we continue to grow we continue to show the general public that the car community as a whole can be a very positive and productive part of society. We do this by attending Cubscout Pinewood derby's, raising money for CHOP, and also raising money for local families in need. As always we are looking to expand our club not only with members but also in networking through the entire automotive scene. If you would like more information about the club and its events, or would like to join please contact us at WickedEffectsCarClub@gmail.com or visit our website www.WickedEffectsCarClub.com. We hope you all have a safe and exciting show season.

1963 Shelby Cobra Roadster CSX2197
In July 1964, Mark C. Tower purchased CSX 2197 from Crater Lake Motors in Medford, Oregon. According to the Shelby Registry, the car was delivered in red over black leather and equipped with the Class A accessories package, which included chrome rocker covers, white sidewall tires, luggage rack, radio, and 5-quarts of anti-freeze which brought the invoice total to $5493.05. Mr. Tower owned the car briefly, and by 1966, CSX 2197 was held by Howard Nettleton of Tacoma, Washington. Shortly after that, it went to John Stevens Jensen of California where it was registered “VNN 794”. Mr. Stevens owned the car for several years until he was killed in a road accident in another Cobra. From 1981, it passed through several more known short-term owners. Along the way, it was noted to have just 9,700 miles on the odometer though it did show some signs of past front-end damage. In the late 1980s, CSX 2197 would find a long-term home with Bill Kemper, a highly respected Cobra expert and restorer. In the early 1990s, he embarked on a long-term restoration, working on the car as time permitted, taking the utmost care as it was a personal project.
According to Mr. Kemper, the car had been unused since suffering a relatively mild accident, and he believed the sub-10,000 miles on the odometer to be accurate. He reported that the Cobra was entirely stripped down, the chassis properly repaired and precisely reinforced and updated based on Kemper’s specifications by Baurle Auto Sport of Addison, Il. The body was completely restored, with great care given to preserving as much original alloy as possible. The front outer panels from the doors forward were replaced, but the doors, rear clip, footwells and engine bay panels are said to be comprised of original metal, painstakingly restored to a very high standard and returned to its original red color. Today it presents in stunning condition, having been used gently in the hands of its most recent owner.
Kemper, of course, had the engine balanced, blueprinted and completely rebuilt along with the gearbox and rear differential. It extremely well-presented with much of the original hardware restored and replated, and detailed with correct labels and markings. It retains its correct, early-type Harrison aluminum radiator as well as the generator which was unique to these early Cobras.
The interior is finished in black leather as originally equipped and features correct Smiths gauges with the wonderful Rotunda Tachometer to the left of the column (Shelby switched to Stewart-Warner gauges and Ford electrics approximately three cars later). The steering wheel and shift knob are also correct for the car’s original specification. This fabulous Cobra has seen only light use since its world-class restoration was completed, and the leather and upholstery remain in excellent condition. Included in the sale is a full top and side-curtain set, as well as the original early-type jack, firewall mounted grease gun, and a set of restored King Dick spanners.
