So after vigorous problems throughout, and too much stress to ever wish upon anyone, my cobra has finally started again! (I didn't start it though) My dad started it (powered by the "mail order chip"). Anyway, the plan is for him to bring it down to north carolina on thursday..... Well, he'll leave indiana thursday, and if all went well, i'd get to drive it sometime friday after i got off of work. I'm tryin not to get my hopes up too much, cuz something just may happen, and ruin everything for me. (it always seems to). But, i'll just remain as calm as i can, and just see how this pans out. Next stop........ true blue!!

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I hope.

Right on!! Well, remember how i said something always seems to happen, well, i won't be getting my car til a little later in the week. I've got to fly to Pennsylvania for a week or so. So i'll have it when i get back i guess. My dad is still planning to bring it to me as soon as i can get back to carolina. I fly out thursday, and i'll be back on either wednesday (next week) or thursday. Anyway, good luck big daddy. I hope you get yours back. Believe me, i feel your pain.......

Yes, going to PA is a military trip. I just can't wait to get into this dang car. Any more disappointments....... then i'm going to sell the car. If it's running like crap when i get it....... bye bye she goes, and i'll see what i can do about getting an '03.
