i like em. if i had the money and time i would try to find one w/ low miles in decent condition. and also, on the plus side, it sure would be nice just to tell people that you drive a cobra

Solid rear axle, higher flowing heads under port/polish than any other production head and decent n/a cams. People just dont know what their talkin about. Besides the crappy internals and transmission, its a stout car, dont let anyone fool ya.

The IRS is just more fun with how I like to drive. Plus I prefer the jagged edges of my 01 compared to the 96-98.

well i guess its all what ppl like. i have a 97 cobra black on black with 60000 miles i picked it up for a little under 8000. its in almost perfect condition. all stock very clean. my favorite Cobra next to a terminator. love the hood and front bumper. sn-95's are my fav. and honestly i dont think theres very many bad things to say about them, its all up to the buyer and what ur looking for. so buy what you want!

Get rid of the jacked up 4WD look with the rear tires set inside the wheel well by a foot and it looks good. Griggs has a nice 98 (I think) Cobra convertible that will eat up just about anyone in the twisties. We all know these cars can be made to excel. The 03/04 just looks mean, though, no denying it. I just don't understand why Ford went through the trouble and expense of putting in the Teksid block and a forged steel crank in the 96-98, but then went cheap on the rods and pistons. I would gladly have paid an extra $1,000 to have the good stuff in from the factory.
