    I found 2 Cobras for sale....the 1997 is in pretty good condition , it's Crystal White with Black/Tan interior with 52k original miles....asking price is $13,995

    I also found a 1998 BAB Cobra with 65k Miles that they are asking [ LMFAO ] $17,999. This car has a s-281 spoiler on it, with some type of 18x9/10 deep dish wheel on it.

    I've been looking for low mileage 96-98 Cobras for a while and was wondering what I should offer them.

    I work at a car dealership and I ran both vins on Carfax which came back clean. I also checked our dealer KBB Wholesale which states bought Wholesale around 7-8k and retail for around 13k.....

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated

    I would keep looking. That way to much, just think if you get it and it gets hit insurance is only going to give you about 10k.

    Keep looking. The car I should have bought instead of this one was a 96 cobra with 48k for 9k from a dealership. But I wasn't thinking and bought this car.

    That's the right thing to do. Where are you located that they are so high priced? I thought mustangs were priced high around my area but jeez.

    first off, i have no idea what a BAB is. Second i would laugh and say sorry but "you got took" and then go walk in to that one with the white one and have 10k in cash and say, "10k cash, or i walk".

    I've gotten cars for 2/3rds of what they were asking that way. Just remember "Money talkes and bull shit walks". Live by it. And good luck
