425 miles and it's already been put down

When searching for some random mustangs and maybe some nice deals on some V8's, I typed in Cobra and found this. Not even 500 miles on it and it's already wrecked. Damn damn DAMN shame..

one of those pics took me a good minute to figure out what it was of.

That is a shame. Wonder what the circumstances were. Wish I had that kind of money...

I meant to buy a Cobra and throw it away.

If I did have the cash, I would consider buying that, but I would pay no more than half what it was new.

A new Cobra is what @ $29000.00? I wonder if this would even be worth buying at $15000+ the cost of all the repairs.

I didnt think there was going to be that much damage from the first picture I saw, but after reading that description and seeing the other pics, I am questioning that frame.

it sent the door back hard ehough to screw up the quarter panel and break off the vent.. highly doubt that frame is straight and i doubt that door will ever close/open/sit right EVER again.

I was going to say something like that too, but I wanted to take into consideration it could have been some ******* that might have hit the driver of the Cobra
