    Hey,
    New to the forum. I've got a 94 Cobra and am restoring a 65 Falcon.

    Here's the cobra:

    My first car too. Bought it when I was 15 and restored in high school with the funds that I had from working part time at minimum wage. Now that I'm definitely NOT in H.S. anymore, I decided its time to build it how I always wanted to. :grin: It's getting a mod motor with a pair of 67mm turbos. Should do the trick.

    welcome! I guess I'll be the first to ask about the Cobra, lol. What's done? That's an interesting body kit. I don't think I've seen a split (uhh splitter?) like that before.

    Start some build threads with lots of pictures :)

    Is that a Roush front on your Cobra?

    welcome to the asylum.
    Sweet cobra, and the falcon looks to be just a little more than a "restoration" lol. definately post up a build thread.

    4v. It's getting a TEKSID based MMR1500 4.75. Should do the job :)

    ok, maybe a "little" more than a straight restoration...

    I'll try and post up a build thread. Work has been crazy lately. But can't complain, without it, toys go away.

    Yeah, I like the look of the cobra front bumper. I just wanted the lines of the car to line up a little nicer with the cervini side skirts. Roush didn't make them for the cobra. So I just bought a set and shaped them to fit the cobra foglights.
