Default Cobra for Pansies?

How about the automatic cobra? Did they even make them?

No cobras came from the factory with an automatic, I bet that was installed for the strip. That car has probably lived a very hard 11,000 mile life at the strip.

sticks are good for impressing high school kids, automatics win races......

if trailered, down and back, that car could have 20,000 passes down the 1320, or owned by some old guy that couldnt drive a stick...but id be willing to bet it was beat

Yeah, but a properly tuned shift points will make your car 5x more consistent then the guy driving stick. But yes, on the street, sticks are more fun. Freud would probably have something to say about men deriving enjoyment from having your hand on a stick...and I probably would agree.

Straight line races that is.
But the Cobras were built with road course in mind, where automatics ain't worth jack.
