Love mine...but I don't drive it as much as I should.
This is my second one...I built one back in 2003 and sold it after a while. I missed having one, so I traded my 68 Camaro to get back into the Cobra.
FFCars.com is a great resource for you. Look at the regional section and you may find an owner near you. Most of us are very happy to show off our cars to locals and give you the pros & cons. Someone in your area might know the car and can tell you their opinion of the build quality.
Crazy fast...even with a bone stock 302, it will be one of the fastest cars you'll own.
It's loud and sounds bad-***
Even though it's not an original, it's a total blast to own & drive
Fair weather car...I don't drive mine when it's cold out or even looks like it might rain
It's loud...I need earplugs when I drive mine.
My wife hates it. "it's too loud...it's too small...it smells like gas/exhaust...whine...whine...whine". It's not for everyone
Every car is unique. If the build quality is good, it's a great car to own/drive. If the owner didn't take his time or know what he was doing, you could be getting a basket case.
Be glad to answer questions if you want to PM me.
