I think you can pick up a nice one for 19grand with 40-60k miles.

I just did a quick local search an this one popped up for me: not my kind of color but..... Pretty much bone stock.

Man, if i only had 19 grand!! I'd prob be a trader and buy an 06 pontiac gto.. Those things are pretty good bang for your buck.

Well I'm not rushing I have plenty of patience for some reason in Texas the cobras seem to cost a lot more than most other areas. I'm in the Dallas fort worth area if anyone knows where u can get one

I've had four 03 cobras in my garage. None have ever had a head issue.

If you're speaking of the "tick" it's never been proven to actually cause any problems long term

I got ya. The blue paint has actually been proven to not show anything has been completed on the head. Your best bet is to look at service records or have an oasis report done.
