They are kindof like a house in Arizona, fun to visit and party in but you don't want to spend to much time in one:yup: The roads you guys have up there would make it unpleasant to drive

Yep, my kid was 12 years old when he came driving in the driveway with this, I asked him now what are you doing? My niece was laying down the backseat laughing, she had just bought it.

There's really nothing bad that can be said about any of the cars in the pics!



Mitch, what's the difference between the two...??? My guess is that SVT has a nice smooth powerband....

The red one is a 97 svt cobra. 4.6 liter v8 naturally asperated with 305 hp. Five speed manual. Blue is a 08 svt Shelby cobra with a 5.4 liter supercharged v8(basically the same setup as the Ford GT...detuned to 500hp) with a six speed manual. Both engines are hand built and signed by the two builders.

Pick of the 500 engine





97 cobra engine
