Re: so about the cobra

yup that's all i'm doing to it... oh and the RAI as well but that's all, i figure that will be plenty for what i'm looking to do and yeah, i'm happy with it, it'll look good, sound good and that's all i'm looking for. might end up getting a light bar for it though and just some cosmetic stuff

Re: so about the cobra

It never hurts to have 2. Trust me. I now have 2 hood, 2 transmissions, and about to get a second motor. Always gotta have back ups.

Re: so about the cobra

yeah, i mean i don't know what exactly could go wrong with it unless i do what my buddy did and wrapped his in a trash bag and we washed his engine and he forgot to take it off and started the car and crushed the air cleaner... although it was ****ing hilarious... it cost about 60 bucks for a new cleaner...

Re: so about the cobra

I think Tucker would take it back as well if you explained what happened.

If not, you should easily be able to sell it.

Re: so about the cobra

i think i was most excited seeing that it's the deeper yellow and not that faded yellow color... so how many other people on here have yellow cobras?

Re: so about the cobra

now that you mention it ... it does look like screaming yellow in the pics vs zinc. Thus its not an 03 cobra its an 04 ... or it was repainted. If those chrome wheels are the factory ones thats even more so... the inserts on the seat in standard for 04, black was an option....hmmmm you sure its an 03?

Re: so about the cobra

I don't remember there being a black insert option in 03....there were only 2 options when I went and ordered my car....Spoiler delete and chrome rims.

Those inserts tell me it is an 04 and not an 03...Plus it looks like the door key on the driver side is chrome which = 04 as well.

Re: so about the cobra

so if it's a 04... does it make it worth more? become rarer? or i just got the facts wrong on the car and it does nothing to it other than make it a year newer

Re: so about the cobra

Actually, it does make it a bit more rare. There were only 5600 04 cobras made....where as there were 13000 03's made.

Re: so about the cobra

very intresting and very awesome, ran the VIN, dealership had it wrong.. it is a 04... now i'm excited... i guess haha, i'm just glad i finally got my childhood dream car. Took the roush that i had and traded it into a dodge dealership... got a Daytona Charge they had on the lot... got 15000 for the roush and the daytona was only 18000 so yeah i only have to pay out 3 grand for the daytona... that's like a months paycheck here.. little less actually

Re: so about the cobra

also screaming yellow is far superior to zinc yellow, you defiantly got the best yellow for 03/04
