    Well I traded my 95 for a 99 cobra. Im extremely happy with the car, but right now im just lucky to be alive. I met the guy down in Harrisburg PA. On the way down to Harrisburg i was driving on the interstate doing 75mph with thick fog. When suddenly a car going the wrong way on the highway was coming right at me, i couldn't see do to the fog and i nearly hit him head on doing 75. I was within a second of losing my life and somehow my car didn't lose control as i swerved out of the way with wet road conditions. Then on the way home with the cobra i get a text from the guy who got my old car. He wrecked it within an hour of being the owner, unbelievable. Its might be totaled, the whole car is twisted up. Makes me pretty sick just thinking about it. Then to top it off i got two flat tires on the turnpike 2.5 hrs away from home. Had the car towed on a flatbed to a local shop and thankfully they could patch the tire and i was able to make it home safely. So whats the chances of all this happening all in one day? Im just happy to be home safe after all this. Pretty much felt like a nightmare last night.



    Here it is all dirty, im cleaning it later today and putting a cover over it for winter.

    Glad to hear your alright. It was pretty damn foggy over here last night as well.

    I feel bad for the owner of your old car, but judging from the pictures alot can still be saved from that car.

    That really sucks about your old car... but at least you're alright and nothing serious happened to your new ride. Oh, and you have my favorite now.... Love me some 99 cobra. Very nice! :)

    Yeah I'd be willing to bet he was going fast and probably lost control. Any who, to change topic a bit.. Whats first planned for the Cobra?

    He was all worried because it didn't have traction control. On the test drive he was bottoming out everywhere bc its so low lol. Big plans for this one of course. As of right now my first's on the to do list is suspension/wheels and exhaust. It has a magnaflow catback that i think im going to get rid of, if anyone wants to buy it.
