Well, after an fun ride in the convertible to Charlotte, NC, I took delivery of a new 04 Mystichrome Cobra. :bounce:

A special thanks to Ed Burwell for riding up there with me. The car got all kinds of stares and the birds gave it their "official seal" of approval. :rolleyes:

Awesome Ride!:D Will take pics tomorrow...

Congratulations Tony!!! I bet it looks awesome! Hope you bring it to the auto fair so I can drool all over it.:D :bounce:

I hope you drool where the birds christened it. That way it'll wipe off easy... :rotf:

TONY - you ROCK my Mystichrome brother!:thumbsup:

I'm stoked you got your car. You know you have a Mystichrome Cobra if....

You try and take a picture of the car but realize that the lighting just isn't good enough right here so you move the car to get a better angle on the light... after four moves you realize that you'll NEVER be able to get a photo to show what the car REALLY looks like.

You park it in a parking lot and come out to find a group of people walking in circles around it just to see the paint change.... and then you join in.

Your passenger keeps yelling ...now the hood looks BLUE... now the hood looks GREEN.... now the hood looks PURPLE... and then you join in.

Congratulations bro and remember... keep the color changing side up. :thumbsup:

I don't think anyone could ever really appreciate these cars until they see them in person. Sorry, a picture isn't worth a thousand words here. After washing in Zaino this weekend, I counted over 6 shades of green, 6 shades of blue, and three shades of purple. Of course, there is only one shade of black otherwise you have gray... :rotf:

I'll have pics this weekend sometime but I've been real busy working on the 5th Anniversary program.


Oh, BTW, you know you have a Mystichrome if:

You change lanes just to see the colors change.

You look at everyone else's car going by you so you can see the reflection of the colors of your Mystichrome Cobra in the side of their vehicle.

You only take it out during the day to get the full color effect.

When you leave it to go into a store or a restaurant, you always look back to see what color it is.

You thank God you are not color blind.

The steering wheel is one color while the seat inserts are another.

You put Zaino gloss enhancer on it everyday to make the color more brilliant.

You are so right .... photos do not do these cars justice.

You know you have a Mystichrome if....

You are annoyed that no one has invented color changing rubber for your tires.

You wonder if any of the scale model companies will ever produce a mystichrome model.

You stand outside in the glaring sun so that your lilly white bald spot will change colors (to lobster red.... ouch did that a couple of weekends ago).

Enjoy the ride and try and keep your eyes on the road.

Enjoy and wave at the people stareing at you because it never stops :D :thumbsup:

Again, congratulations Tony. I bet it looks just as good as the original Mystic. (Did I say that out loud? Sorry, I seem to be a little biased toward my Mystic). They do look good. Maybe when, uhhmm, uhhmmm... if, I get mine running I can meet up with you at an event and we can get some pics together!

02-27-2004, 08:21 PM
Thanks Jason, and you bet we can take a photo together! :thumbsup:
