Need to decide: 01 KB Cobra or Termi?

What do you guys think I should purchase?

An 01 cobra, put a kb/whipple on it... or pay more to get a termi?Terminators have always been my dream car also, but if I can get an 01 for cheaper and invest into a sick s/c setup and be even faster than a termi that would be great. I want the best bang for the buck, as everyone does!

Thanks!

Termi, will hold value longer and better overall car, engine, tranny, interior and body style.

Buy the 01 if you have an extra $8g laying around for internals.

Termi I have a 99 for two years and I've learned that the money you'll put in the 99 or 01 won't hold it the 03 and 04 will that's why they are ten years old and still around 20k lol

you guys make very good points! Thanks! Only problem is, termi's aren't the cheapest car lol. And the insurance? Probably pretty expensive but I bet its all well worth it to have a one of a kind car that isn't too common ya know.

Blower on a 01 won't even compare to a Termi. You will blow that motor up unless you do internals. You can find a good Termi for $20K.

I would most certainly go with an'03/'04 cobra instead of a '01. As was stated earlier, they will hold their value better and are already built and supercharged!
I've thought going the cheaper route with an '01 and building it up and throwing a Hellion on it but I've wanted a terminator for ten years now and even though I could make a 2001 look and drive like one...it's not the same!
I am pulling the trigger on one in August and I'm as giddy as a school girl at a Bieber concert!

The Termi is such a great car you could pose the same question and sub any other car for that 01 and the answer will still be Terminator 9 times out of 10. It's a Top 5 of all time stang IMO
