After owning my '96 GT Coupe for 13 years, I have decided that I would like a Convertible. I have always wanted a manual, cobra rear brakes, and most of all I have always wanted a 4v engine. (IRS is enticing as well) I know 2v engines put down respectable numbers with the right parts and tuning but at this time in my life I dont have the room to do any major projects like that. My garage is simply not big enough for a major build as of yet. I am thinking that 8k is the most I can spend. I prefer it to be less but I dont want to buy a junker that needs a bunch of work. I prefer something with under 100k even though nice examples can be found with more miles. So if I found a well kept one I wouldnt be opposed to it. I absolutely love the appearance of the SN95, but i am not opposed to the New edge either. Obviously I couldnt get a terminator but I would get one of those over the SN95. This conflicting issue I have is the 99-01 Cobras, Are they worth it? They cost about 3-5 grand over the Sn95, so I was wondering if I could justify getting a later one based off the upgrades. Any opinions on this? Or should I go test drive the crap out of both of them? I have seen SN95 cobras go for 5.5k-8.5k and New edges go from 7.5k-12k. I have seen them go as high as 15k which sounds like way too much. How much do you guys think I should pay?
