man I love those rims.....how close are we Mike?????

Has the car ever been in a wreck? It is odd that the 03 has the 01 taillights with the amber turn signals?

Good Luck Mike, I thought you were going for another convertible - did you change your mind?

Ok....the deal is done. It is mine!
Got a great price too for all this car has done and its history is pretty special.

Your questions answered...

Cobra has clean carfax and the tailights were exchanged per the owners preference. I hope I like them as much but can always change back.

Yes, I did change my mind on a convertible vs. a coupe. I intend as always to participate in cruises, car shows, and club events. However, I do want to take part in at least 2 driving events per season and this gets it done the easiest way possible. Also, my daughter does not like to ride in a vert due to her hair getting messed up or the temp too hot/cold - she's 14! I like to ride w/ the family once in a while. Finally, the price of a coupe tends to be a bit cheaper and I took advantage of that also.

Now I have to pay for the thing!

I will post up more pics and details when I get it home.

Congrats Mike, she looks great. I only met you once but clearly remember your spoken desire for a Terminator. I'm also in the hunt for a replacement "toy", it may take awhile but like you I'm gonna wait for the right car and right deal......Mark.

SWEET!!!!!! I can't wait to see it.....and if you still need to use my house as a meeting place, I am all for it!

That is what I was thinking about the tail lights, as I wanted to do that with my 03 when the 01 was wrecked, but one of the lights was cracked.

Can't wait to see it!.......TRACK DAYS HERE WE COME!

Congratulations Mike, the car looks great and I like that color alot! Agree the hardtop makes it easier to attend driving events and even the drag strip. I am still struggling on what I am going to do! Still tough for me to give up a convertible on a nice sunny day I looked at a 07 GT500 hardtop Saturday with 6500 miles on it for $42,000 with pulley upgrade and new exhaust system. The guy would take my car and difference. Wants to stop his payments. Not sure if I want to go that route.

BigJohn...I am very good at spending other people's $$ and I think you should do that without hesitation. 42k is quite reasonable w/ 6500 miles if you like the color. Plus, this is a great time of year - buyers market vs. Spring when sellers will have the upper hand. You may be able to buy it a bit lower (40k).

I hear you on the convertible attributes...I agree. Nothing like a vert on a sunny, summer day BUT I have arrived at the conclusion that we live in the northern half of the country so those days are relatively few. Driving with all the windows down on a nice summer day will be pretty nice too. I also love track events even though they are few. Plus, a change after a number of years with the same car can rekindle your excitement about owning a Stang/Cobra.

Good luck with your decision and have a great holiday!

Stay in touch and keep us all posted.
