Why would you buy ANOTHER Cobra? Just 5 days ago in another thread you said you just bought a 2004 Cobra!

The 2004 is technically my dads, It was a 35k dollar car, so my dad bought it and if i want to drive it sometimes i can. If i trade my truck off we will both have one. i have a 96 cobra that is wrecked that i bought off a salvage yard to put the motor in my ranger.

This is the non supercharged cobra but it has a built motor making 400 h.p. N/A and trust me, it outruns MOST supercharged cobras. Its been to the track once and ran a 12.2 in the 1/4 mile, to say the least its a bad ***** f*ucker. And no i dont offroad, my truck has never hardly seen mud. im a drag race guy

Well, you have your answer then, don't you? I like being up high and in a truck or SUV. I would love a cobra, but it wouldn't be my DD....

If you don't use your truck for what its meant to be used for then I would get the cobra. especially if you like to drag. does it snow in arkansas?
