Default i dunno

I would say more consideration needs to go into it other than just 'get the Cobra'. For instance, where you live. I bought my 04GT when I lived in Las Vegas, and everything was a max of 10 blocks away. I modded the hell out of it and the poor gas mileage didnt matter. Now I am separated from the Air Force and live in Alabama and everything is 40 miles away. I have since taken most of the performance gear off it to increase my MPG. If the car is a DD, I would lean toward the GT personally. I know everyone loves the Cobras, and so do I, but they are more expensive to mod, are going to get less MPG with FI or not because they have 2x as many induction valves and it is definitely going to cost more to insure. Of course, none of this matters if you live in a city, dont care about MPG, have tons of money to mod it and pay insurance. The Cobra will be faster, but it isnt always about being the fastest. I bought my car and modded it to beat my buddies 04 Cobra, and while that was fun, I am still paying the price for it now. lol. anyway, that is just my 2 cents

well im still deciding on what I want to do I have wanted an eclipe for the longest time and here lately everyone is trying to push me into getting a Mustang so I am still really unsure what I really want

I dont believe the 97 cobra is really a cobra it has the strip along the bottom of the door and V-6 rims

the more I look the more I cant decide on what I want
