    Haven't posted on here since I introduced myself. Been busy working on the never ending list of house projects! I figured I'd share some photos of my car from the time I bought it 4 years ago to now.

    A little background on my car... I found the car on Craigslist after what seemed an eternity of looking for either a clean fox body or a sn95 cobra. Finally I made a decision to go with a sn95 cobra because all the fox body mustangs I looked at were out of my price range or rusted out cars. After browsing eBay and Craigslist for 7 months I found my top sn95... A 1998 Bright Atlantic Blue Cobra!!! To me this car was the craigslist find of the century considering the guy that owned it before me didn't know how rare this color is to find! My buddy and I drove a little over two hours to check this car out. Luckily the only major problem with the car when I looked at it was the clutch was completely gone in the car. Other than that the car needed a ton of cleaning.


    First impression of the car when my buddy and I went to check it out. The owner before me only knew it was a mustang cobra but did not realize it was 1 of 563 produced in this color.

    I cut off the old exhaust that was completely welded up. I had to make room to get trans out for a new clutch.

    My friend sent me this when I was storing it in his garage! Someone was trying to tell me something here...

    I'm up in the air with what I want to do with the car. Im leaning on doing an 03-04 cobra motor swap. Currently just driving the car as is with some minor bolt ons. At this point I have a brand new t56 magnum and all the stuff needed for the trans swap but have not had time to put it in. This winter I'm going to get my trans in since i do not want the car down during the summer! I'll try to keep this thread up to date! Enjoy!

    Yeah, can't go wrong with BAB. Your pictures too show just how gorgeous that color is.

    Good luck with it!

    Go get one while the prices are good on these sn95 Cobras! I got my car for a steal since the previous owner wasn't really a car guy and the only thing he could put a value on is that my car was a cobra. His loss my gain!

    If you are anywhere near Ohio, let me know if you do the swap and decide to sell the 98 Cobra motor.

    when i find mine it will be: one owner, low mileage (under 70k), virtually untouched (stock), and have never had the front plates on and i have no problem spending 13k on it too since its the car ive wanted for years. ive seen a few for sale around that price range and mileage. i actually almost bought one in december from colorado. one owner, stock and had 53k miles, but it got sold from under me
