omg did you guys know..........

that they made one cobra every ten years?

that they used to have a 4.0 in the "lx v6"?

that mustangs came with a 3.4L v6?

that if you put a "racing chip" in the car it will shut down at 140 and if you leave it stock it will go faster?


i had a guy stop to talk to me in the parking lot where i live, this, among other things i cant remember is what he told me..........he knows these things, he used to own a mach 1 and his buddy collects cobras. he cant get a mustang now b/c he's paying on his explorer though, but he's gonna get one. his buddy also has one just like my car

life makes sense to me now

Re: omg did you guys know..........

tis ok, i had this one yesterday morning:

Lady to me as i step out of my car, yells "Hey nice mustang" from some beat down pos truck. Me: "Thanks" as i continue into the gas station store for my morning brew.
as im at the register, she comes inside also, gets some stuff and stands in line behind me, goes "what engine does it have?" i go "its a 2003 cobra with the factory supercharged 4.6 liter". she chuckles, goes "4.6, thats it? even my 2003 Saleen has a 5.0!" me: "Really, im pretty sure ford stopped producing pushrods in '95, so umm, no you dont" her, "Its special order from the factory".

me after this comment = :. it was too early to begin a friendly conversation with stupids, just said "cool" as i walked out. couldve been all ******bag on her, like "Really, so Ford found a 5.0 motor sitting in the back of the factory collecting dust, changed all their tooling on their line and installed it, just for you?"

the next morning (thismorning actually) when i walked in the lady at the register was like "wow you gave that lady quite the face yesterday", i just said something like "yeah, ignorance is bliss i guess, some peoples kids i tell you what"


i havent had many compliments on the cobra because it doesnt stick out as much as the GT, and you know what, its so much better to blend in and not have to talk to stupids everyday, i diont miss conversations like the above one bit. once in a while, someone does notice it and its like "**** here we go again"

Re: omg did you guys know..........

hahaha **** I would have told her to look at the owner's manual next time she feels the need to talk about her own car's specs.

I have yet to hear a compliment from anyone about my car Not like it's screaming for attention, or I'm trying to hear any. I don't expect to I guess. But Thomas, if I see anyone with a Cobra driving next to me or at a gas station I always compliment. Most every Cobra around here is modified, but I rarely see them on the road.

I always get asked if my car has a 5.0 in it. I've gotten to where I don't even try to explain it..just point at the 3.8 badge and go back to what I'm doing.

I can't wait till I replace the shortblock on mine....and I can tell people I have a 5.0L in it..or better yet...nearly a 5.4L in it if I decide to go 324 big bore. That should get a lot of people who "think" they know what motors are in mustangs.

I get this all the time. In fact, it's why I bought the v6 badging I have on both fenders and the trunk. And I still get those guys that ask if it's a 5.0. What pisses me off too is when I tell them its a 3.8 they ask if Im sure. No, Im not sure, Im so stupid as to not realize Im missing two cylinders when I have had this motor tore down to the block twice now. And yes, it is faster than your cavalier.
