Against my better judgement I PM'd the guy with the 95 Cobra for sale. Hopefully its sold lol. If not... I probably will not get it but I just really miss my 95 and I'm not sure how many more like this one are out there. Details on it are:

-95 Cobra SVT
-31k original miles
-Bone stock
-Garaged, seller says it looks brand new
-Crystal White with black leather (favorite combo and like the one I used to have)
$9k

I know its a great deal, I know every inch of these cars, I know parts are cheap, I know how to do every mod from interior teardown to motor build to the trans to the rear to all body panels etc...

I also feel with the other 95 that I "did it wrong" as in I did one too many... I guess hackjob mods to it instead of taking the time to spend a little more $$$ and do it completely right the first time and I'd love to get a mulligan in that regard I guess.

We'll see what happens. Like I said I probably won't wind up with it, a lot of things would have to fall into place but you never know.

Oh, "whack" is bad? It used to be that "bad" meant good. "Ill" used to mean that someone was "sick" and now that is apparently good.
Anyhow, I'm just going to continue speaking the proper "Queens English" and let you guys sort out the definitions of all of that slang.

First dibs on the steering wheel though, Scotty, if you buy the car and decide that you don't really like the FR500 and want to change it back to stock. I hear that they kinda suck. Probably the guy that took it off of the FR500 didn't like it either. Pay no attention to the prices that people are asking for them on the internet... They're dreamers! You can't hardly give them away but I'm willing to help you out by taking it off of your hands.


I'm not really a convertible guy, but that car does look like a pretty good deal. That's a crap load of mods on it! I do wonder why that guy is so in love with the rims that they aren't included?
A car like that is just begging for a "low ball" offer of about 5 grand and I wouldn't move very far from that number. That's the nice thing about having both cash and time, you don't have to be in any hurry and you can find the car that is right for you and at the price that you want to pay.

yes there are a lot of mods done to that car but nothing that is overly expensive. Would you have bought all the same mods or would you have chose different manufacturers and set ups?
7k is a lot of money and you could buy all those mods in one night of online shopping putting them on a (stock) mustang making it your own and knowing that it was done properly.

The VIS hood is one of the best ones out there and it being carbon fiber it is both lighter and stronger than fiberglass which is the whole point of a CF hood. Unpainted ones are retarded. I can't tell if the section of that hood is unpainted or just painted black to match the seats. Being a vert, the SN95 verts look great but that's all personal opinion. The 4.6 emblem, are you kidding? That's 5 minutes with a heat gun and right off. Rims are FR500s and a very popular rim but apparently the car would come with stockers.

I know "crack is whack" but that's about it lol. The joke about the FR500s is that they are $500 new if you can find one. I have had multiple opportunities to buy them for that price in the last few years but never pulled the trigger because my wheels have always been good and if I was going to get a new steering wheel I'd recover one myself via the Redline kit which is just as good and is custom however I'd like it.

No idea about the rims either, that is odd since they aren't like... anything anyone couldn't buy right away unless he promised them to a friend or whatever.

This is a car I've followed on other forums for a bit. The guy did it all correctly and yes there are a few mods that are overly expensive. The ABC front bumper and getting a body guy to fit it (they are notorious for needing work out of the box) like it does is one. Cams are $600 plus the $$$ to install them is going to bring that up to $1200 right there, PI swapped, the FR500, custom upholstery, etc... etc... In that condition stock that car would be a $4k car. Cost of all the mods done to that car is probably in the $4-$5k range if he did all the work himself, more with labor involved. So I'd say $6k would be a really fair price for it IMO. That's what I sold my blue one for and my blue one had a brand new transmission and the wheels/tires came with it.

Either way dude needs to get back to me. I'd still probably rather have the 30k mile Cobra especially if the guy came down to $8k but that guy hasn't got back to me either lol.

VIS you can see the Carbon fiber weave clearly from 5-10 feet away. The TruCarbon hoods looks damn near black at 5-10 feet, but get up close and you can see the beautiful CF weave. I'll probably be getting my CF hood from them.

Honestly for me I worry more about the fit/finish of any hood. If I did wind up getting this car and that section was unpainted and just cleared... I would be taking it to a shop to have that section color matched and sprayed. I hate unpainted CF hoods. I understand them on a racecar but on a street car... Complete rice.
