Love the cobras but it all depends. Mileage, condition, and price.

6600 I think thts too much. I feel tht the 95-98 cobras are the ones being sold the most on Craig's right now. There's better ones trust me just keep looking

If it is in really good condition it would be a steal up here in canada. I would definitly look at it and make an offer of 5800 and settle at 6. There great cars. Love the 4v 4.6.

$6,600 on any mustang in great shape is not bad. But with 130,000k I dout its in great shape. I'd look it over any way, never know, there is deals our there.

No just gear ratio cai exhaust tuned perform clutch 75mm throttle body and a lot of suspension. 300 might be exaggerated by me lol but my suspension put the power to the wheels. I love cobras but i wish insur wasnt sp expensive!

The last insurance I had they did not consider it a sports car unless it was a vert. Current insurance on my 90 is $200 bucks the entire year.

He has more than that. A stock 97 Gt has 215 stock so your saying all those mods he only picked up 15hp? That doesn't seem right.
