Firefly Cobra

I don't know about some people...how you can take such a beautiful thing and **** it up! Unless this is some kind of limited edition, special model I don't know about...







I found it on autotrader, it looks like a true cobra R too...

Re: Firefly Cobra

thats gay, no other way to describe it... I ONLY hope its not a real 00 cobra R... is so the gay-ness is magnified 1000 times. If you want to see if its real you need to see if it has the Cobra R engine or you look for a back pic to see if you can see the 20 gal gas tank~ most times those are not able to be reproduced.

Yah one of the other pics was a shot of the engine bay...definitely was the 5.4L. I couldn't see whether it had the 20 gallon gas tank, but I'm guessing the engine is proof enough.

Re: Firefly Cobra

I'm a little confused. If it is a true R, all he did was put some graphics on it in paint. That is something that is easily fixed just like if he had a number of road chips or if his car had been keyed. He didn't rice it all up, he just put some graphics on it. few hundred bucks in paint and it's fixed.

I agree the graphics suck, but, he hasn't defaced the car or modified it at all.

Re: Firefly Cobra

he defaced it by it being marked as a repaint (unless they are peal off graphics) but who would ever know accept for someone that really knew what they were looking at (like a collector)

Re: Firefly Cobra

If that's the issue, then those that are racing them currently instead of letting them sit in a bubble are just as guilty of defacement because you know the paint is getting chewed up on the track. There's a whole section for the owners of 00 R's on SVTP and everyone one of the members there race theirs yearly.

A re-paint is less of an issue than someone replacing stock parts. Cars get repainted, happens all the time.

Well that's what I figured, anyone who bought the car could have the graphics removed...it's not rocket science to do. No car's going to be perfect, especially if it's actually used. I just couldn't believe someone put those weird *** graphics on the car. He also had in the description that it was no. 141, and had nitrous equipped. You can see the lines and gauges in the pics.

Re: Firefly Cobra

if someone wants to beat on it and enjoy it thats fine, its their car. If I had one I would encourage it, there are only 300 of the 00s so the more beat up the better off I would be lol, but its not like its a good investment or will be anytime soon
