Default yo ho ho

i had a little automotive problemo the past week, which included totaling my mustang. my plan was to put money down on a mach1 come August, but since i didnt get that far, i didnt have the money to put down on one (to get payments that would be in my reach). so after some extensive car shopping, i landed a 97 cobra with 71k miles. i like cobras and all, but if i really had much of a choice, i dont think i would have ever bought one but it does ride nice. so i guess you'll be seeing more of me around here.

tell that to a friend of mine. he thinks SVT is gods gift to the world. dont get me wrong, theyre great cars, but i guess me personally, i never saw the hype in them. maybe its just me though. buyin this car was more like "meh, whatever, its moderately fast, nothin more really."

Maybe you never saw the hype in them becuase you had to buy a 97 cobra and not a 03/04 cobra. If you bought a terminator you would see the hype lol.

I really only value a svt if its a 03/04 cobra. But I see where your coming from foxes are awsome! Went to the track last night (didn't run my car, took my dad power stroke f-350) and there were alot of foxes hitting 10s and 9s in the quarter mile.

nice 97. imo the 96-98 cobra body styles are the sexiest, you sir have a sexy cobra.

oh and its black +10 hp

what mods did you get it with? or did it come stock?
any plans?

the only stuff i noticed was an intake, catback, and a short throw. ill take a further look at the engine later. its still got the stock heads, no upgraded pullies,and from what i can tell, the rear gears havnt been touched, but ill check that out too soon.

im contemplating ordering smoked headlights and an o/r H today, but i dont have the cash. im gonna have to have a friend of mine put it on credit if i do.
