Leslie Helwig, the township's director of community relations, said the high interest in the Friday night event was a welcome surprise and the response from participants was very positive.
"People were lined up here before we could even get started. It was much more than we expected," Helwig said today during the Bloomfield Township Classic Car Show Saturday morning.
"The cars were gorgeous, the drivers were wonderful and people came back just so excited," she said.
For $15, more than 50 participants took a 15-minute ride in one of the Performance Cobra vehicles to help benefit the Bloomfield Hills Optimist Club, Bloomfield Township Fire Department Charities and Bloomfield Township Police Department Benevolent Fund. Rider's had their pictures taken in their favorite Cobras and will be included in compiled gallery for the township's website and Facebook page.
