(Price reduced)
1999 Cobra convertible for sale. Due to economic conditions, I am forced to sell my red cobra convertible. The car is in Gaithersburg, MD. 189,000 miles, but on its second engine (new Mach 1 installed 35,000 miles ago). New 6-speed transmission put in about 50,000 miles ago. Car is in great shape, considering wear on driver's seat and some paint nicks. Other than that, the car is street legal, but also road track ready with full roll bars, racing harnesses, etc. Look at mods in signature below.

All of the mods were made since I bought the car back in 2000 when I joined the club. Cost of mods, engine, tranny, racing suspension and other stuff amount to more than $20,000 beyond original cost. All 4 tires are almost new, a few hundred miles on them.
see http://www.musclemustangfastfords.com/events/0312mm_modular_shootout_5_drag_race_car_show/photo_19.html for some of the car's history. See http://www.svtcobraclub.com/forums/vbgarage.php?do=view&id=13 for pictures.

Would like to sell outright for $12,900, but will bargain for less. I have it on the DC area Craigslist, but most responses are spamming or phishing.

Wow Dave, hate to see get go! I guess now you get to start planning her replacement when the economy turns around.

Dave, I'm very sorry to see that Whistler will no longer be a member of your family. :( Hopefully the economic situation gets better and you'll be able to replace it with something better! :thumbsup:

Any interest before I send it out to Craigslist, etc?

I've posted the sale notice on the DC area Craigslist, since the car is now up here with me in Gaithersburg, MD. Whistler is still beautiful and running like brand new.
