    plans are to just make it look good and do some minor mods. IF I change wheels, I'm thinking xxr 531

    its a v6 5-speed

    it looks like the pics this time ;P except for a little oxidation on the hood scoop area (it would be covered completely if i got a 01-04 GT scoop) and some oxidation on the roof, which i can just leave cuz its not too bad or i could black vinyl the roof center. other than that, it's pretty mint with like 2 door dings in total

    What was wrong with the Cobra that made you buy a V6? I do remember you having issues but don't remember the details. I'm kind of wanting to sell it and get an S197 GT for comfort and because mods for the Cobra are an arm and a leg.

    Polish seal and wax the roof, and don't worry about it :)

    I have a scoop we could probably work a deal on lol
