    There are 2 427 cobras around here. One is a fake but one is the real thing. It has a tubular frame and aluminum body. The guy is restoring it maybe i can get some pics.

    Did you guys see the Boss 429 Mustang sell for $550,000. Sick fucking prices. I remember in 1982 I looked at one, the guy wanted $10,000 for it and I thought he was nuts.

    think how much that will be worth in a few years. Its better than the money just sitting in the bank, atleast you can go look at and admire the car lol.

    its not guaranteed to be worth 5 million in the future...the Market is up and down and right now the major reason its up is because of the Baby Boomers are such a large group of people and retiring with money and want to relive their youth. They are snatching up all of the cars they drove while teenagers or wanted to drive as teenagers and don't care what it costs. In 10 years or so when they start dropping off the earth in large numbers the market will be flooded with these cars and the supply will be more then the demand so prices will drop because they always do.

    By the time the price goes down on those cars ours will be worth 100k lol. There were only a few supersnakes made (like 19 i think) thats why there so rare. Supersnakes were competition cobras built just for the track. Just for racing. And carrol shelby only drove that car once in a rally somewere. Its not like he got layed in it or nuthin LOL. No car is worth 5mil IMO.

    That particular car was 1 of 2, the 2nd was made for Bill Cosby and he later sold it to someone who crashed and died in it so thats the only 1 in exhistence.
