unless it's a piece of junk and it's one of those pushit, pull it, or tow it deals you will ALWAYS get more from a private sale then a trade. Just think they have to get it for less from you to make it worth their time of selling it, and any work they may have to do to it.

well financing sucks when you're young i cant get financed so i might keep the cobra til i sell it privately and save up and put alot of money down on a new 04 cobra

if you're having a hard time financing, then go for a used 01 or 03. either one has many advances over the 98 like IRS, and more stock hp/tq. well the IRS is only an improvement unless you drag race! But anyway... it's easier to get financing at a young age on used than new cause the lending institutions know the new car takes a hit once it's driven off the lot, where as a used one doesn't. Less of a loss for them if you don't pay.

if i were you i would save up money and then sell the 98 privately. try to finance only 10-20k and they will be more likely to give you the loan, keeping the financed amount below Low Blue Book. you dont want a huge loan anyway. i work at a credit union in the loan department, so if you have any other questions send me a PM or something. also you can apply at my credit union, i dont have many strings to pull, but i can have the right people try to push the loan thru. everything can be done by mail, so it doesnt matter that we are based in CA. if you have any questions about credit, let me know.
