Default 04' Cobra or Boss 302?

So I have been kicking around the idea of selling my SS and either getting a 2004 Cobra or hold out and get a Boss 302. I still owe on the truck and if I try to sell it now I could potentially walk away with about $10,000 in my pocket. If I wait until it is paid off, which will be in about 18 months or so I could sell it and have close to $24,000 or more for a nice down on a Boss. I am sure they will be marking up the 302ís at the dealers so who knows what the pricing will be like then. There is plenty of low mileage Cobras out there. I would want one with low miles and unmolested. I would still keep the GT as my DD and have the Cobra for fun. So what do you think?

Boss 302 hands down. The new 5.0 platform has alot more potential than the 4.6 family, and they just came out. The best is yet to come with modding the coyote platform.

Not much interested in the Laguna Seca. The standard Boss has more color options and the same track key, plus I would like to have the back seat.

I think Boss wins.

While I love the New Edge, I'm not buying one again ever. The interior to me now is just wayyy too outdated now.

Boss is Boss.

....but you will be paying a lot for it. Would you consider an older 2007-2008 gt500?
