Just wondering if any of you guys now or in the past have had one of the newer lightnings? I have always wanted one and have been thinking of getting one around the spring of this year. Since I am going to be free from the money I owe my dad ( or did owe ) on my house, I can handle a car loan and it be NOTHING at all to me. Soooooo since I have always wanted one, I have been thinking of getting one. You guys see them at the track or anything? What do they run with LIGHT mods?

Well the new ones ( I think 02 and Up ) run high 13's STOCK right? And the older ones ( pre 02 ) ran low 14's

The ones that I have seen at the track usually run mid-low 13's. I also like lightning and im thinking about selling my car and four wheeler so i can get a down payment on one.

I had a Silver 01 that i drove for 2 years and traded on my Lexus...it used too much gas for a DD thats why i traded it but i had every intention of picking up a 05+ but as we all know that program was scrapped :'( I do check around for them just to see if a nice 04 came across my path but not one that made me do a deal yet.
Its fairly comfortable and fast but its heavy...with a blower swap it would be sweet.

lightnings are cool, but 03-04 cobras are better 8)

I would keep my 99 Cobra and get the truck as a second play toy. I would say I would get the Terminator Cobra, but I have already been looking at lightnings around 17k.........thats around 10k lower than a damn 03-04 Cobra :)

Plus I have always wanted a 13 second blown truck 8)

I bro had one for awhile. He loved having it. A truck is always nice to have. Especially one with nearly 400 rwhp. Snake if you get one I think he still has the ported blower with a 2lb pulley from his , and I know he has his Johnny Lightning Cold air kit.
That thing sounded like a damn jet engine. It was bad ass.

My Dad was going to get one back in 93 but got a better deal on a 454ss so he got that instead. Even though the 93's were not as fast as the later years I still like those and if I needed a nice eveyday truck it would be a 93 lightning.


Here are some pics of the lightning and the 454
