Found these pics the other day. Man The Australians and New Zealander are so lucky. They get to have Right Hand Drive Cobra’s. Lucky Drivers.

The second to third gear shift with the left hand could be trouble:D

Here are my observations:

No SVT badge on the rear decklid
signal lights on the fenders
extra driving lights in the front fascia
No SVT center caps
wipers are backwards
engine pull handle on the passenger side

;) ;) ;)

Having driven (owned) a 1992 Skyline GTS-T in Okinawa for a year, I can relate to the 2nd to 3rd shift. Believe it or not, it's pretty easy to slam gears in them. It takes a little getting used to, but it's still a lot of fun to drive "backwards".

Having spent a few months in Perth, Australia during the 80's and having seen a lot of their vehicles, I'm surprised these Snakes even resemble a Mustang. Most of the cars there look like they were assembled with body parts from ALL U.S manufacturers. When you see one of these cars you really wonder what "make" it is. Kinda reminds me of that old Johnny Cash song titled "One Piece at a Time".:D I also notice some things are missing that I saw on many vehicles, i.e. the kangaroo ram on the front end of the car and the plastic window cowlings.:eek:

No SVT badges at all, only the ford oval - I guess because they were finished by FTE australia. And they cost a wee bit more than the US ones (about $50k).
Wouldn't mind getting center caps, where can the best place to get them?

How's the job hunt going? Did you still want in on the Cobra R Hood GP? I may keep it open till 21st of this month. I'd like to order the hoods so too have time to get it ready for Knotts.
