    Sold my 97 Cobra to get a 2000 lightning. Loved the Lightning but missed having a mustang. So I sold that to another cobra. Well, I missed having a truck (that is running) so I picked up a 93 L for a decent price.

    there are a few more picture on my site web.mac.com/chriskelly176

    As soon as the engine gets back in that 454SS next to it will smoke it. But I am sure he is going to change that. He told me his plans, some 408 stroker craziness.

    You should have seen his last Lightning. It was pretty nice only put out a small 396rwhp and 498 rwtq before Steigemer got a hold of the blower and the 2lb upper was put on it. I am sorry though Mike with my PI swap I will be putting down like 250 HP son. So that Lightning, 03 slowbra and 454 betta watch out kid.
