    hi guys, my first post here. just picked up a white 98 cobra yesterday. so far its been the most fun car i've ever owned. to me thats saying alot since i've had an 88 turbo supra (sold), an 89 turbo supra, and a non turbo 97 supra (now for sale).

    two camera phone pics, low quality I know.

    anyway, its pretty sweet feeling what all-motor torque is all about. :)

    Re: my 98 Cobra

    thanks guys, quick question. what kind of wing do I have? I'm guessing its a Saleen wing? To me it looks just like the wing on Saleen S281's.

    Was it ever a dealer option?

    Re: my 98 Cobra

    I finally got my digi cam back, so heres better, higher quality pics for you guys. When I bought it, I found it already has a Roush fenderwell air intake and the Roush 18" wheels (only things I saw right away upon buying). But upon further inspection, I found Roush Springs, Koni Adjustable shocks, and a Roush exhaust. Quite a nice surprise for me.

    Plans after my Supra sells would be a Kenne Bell for streetable power. I don't really plan to go crazy in modifying this thing, just keeping it practical and realistic.

    heres a little photoshop work with saleen style taillight bezels:

    [​IMG]

    i really like the car this way, any leads to where i can get a set of the black bezels? i know i could just paint what I have, but I'd like to keep my original ones white in case I'd ever want to change back.

    Very nice looking Cobra you have there... :thumb:

    IMO put the black bezels on, I have them on my GT and they look pretty good.

    Quick question for ya.....What car is that under the cover in your driveway??

    under the car cover?

    to make it easier I made a thread about it here - http://www.sn95forums.com/forum/index.php?topic=1381.0

    thanks for the comments about the cobra though. i'm still on the fence about what to do about the taillights. i think i'll probably leave it for now.

    The digi cam pics you put up, Pic number 3 and 4 has a car with a cover in it.

    Unless that's next door to you, but it looks like it's in your driveway.
