Default My 03 Cobra Vert Pictures

Figured, I would start a thread on my car and will update it as the car progresses. I'm always browsing the forums but don't post as much as I should. So I figured I'll do a quick re-introduction of myself.

The name is Rudy, 22 years old and I finally got into a mustang March of 2011. I've always wanted a mustang since I was younger but my dad wasn't exactly fond of the idea due to their power. BS, I know.. Anyway, I settled with a '08 tC until I ran into my old Mustang magazines and saw a 03 Cobra I had circled from when I was younger. The more I started looking at Mustangs again the more I wanted one. Long story short I found a Cobra at a local dealership and had to buy it.

I ended up getting a 2003 Cobra Convertible. The dealer unfortunately didn't know what was really done to the car. After looking all I found was a custom exhaust, the front emblem was gone and had a crappy tail light tint on it. I'm planning on doing a lot to the car once I get some Christmas shopping out of the way.

I have more pictures on my HDD I'll upload them sometime soon.

Picture of the Scion tC I had before the Cobra.

Ah, there's nothing quite like a nice black Cobra. I love it. I had a black 01, but with a gray top. So much better looking with the black on black. Congrats on getting your longstanding dream car! It looks great!

Thanks alot for the kind words, .....I honestly wasn't a fan of the wheels at first either when seeing them in pictures, but once I saw them in person and on the car I completely changed by opinion.

Where are you located?

Johns Creek, which if you haven't heard of it it's because it just incorporated a year or two ago, from what was eastern Alpharetta, up 400 near North Point mall...

And so I can say I am still on topic, let me say between you and the OP, you have two NICE black Cobras. One coupe, one convertible, the perfect combo...

cool...I travel over to Northpoint Mall often, plus that's the area where caffiene & octane is now at on the 1st Sunday of every month. Maybe I'll see you over there sometime.

Hey I haven't had it tuned yet but maybe the two previous owners might've taken it there. From what I know it's all stock besides the custom exhaust.

The tC is not bad at all! It had some decent pep to it but nothing like the cobra.

Did the CCWs come with the car? They look great on black cobras. I was thinking about FR500s but it seems that everyone has them..

However, I finally got the Cobra tinted!

Here are two shots taken the following day after the tints were installed from my phone. They look dark because it was cloudy out.

I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would've liked to because it was so cold out!

Wanted to revive this thread from the grave. I have more pictures but I'm at work so I'll post them later tonight. Had to do quite a bit to the car to get it where she's at now but it was well worth it.
