Cobra if it were me.. Sure the 5.0 can be modded cheap but the Cobra is at modded 5.0 power already.. By the time you'd get bored with Cobra you may be able to mod it..

Yes, they def are esp ones that are in excellent shape and not beat all to crap with high miles.

I was lucky to find mine completely stock, low miles, and more then awesome shape.

Why would you even think about trading? All the work you just put into your car and you want to trade for cars that are way older and in worst shape.
