What a snake!

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

Have had his car since new. Mods started within 200 miles, springs, caster camber plates, flowmasters, etc. I've done everything to this car over the years and drive it a bit aggressively (3 speeding tickets). It was purchased to use as weekend driver/car show duty. Everything is chromed, polished, powder coated, painted/waxed and very clean. Old p600 procharger (with inner cooler), 75 shot NOS, DVD, Subs, upgraded stereo, race seats, no rear seats, Lambo doors, carbon fiber hood (same cobra style) interior done with real cobra snakeskin accents carbon fiber, polished billet, etc, etc, too much more to list. Bottom line never really had any problems with it, other than normal.

car has excellent takeoff power from the line even with the stock 3.27 gears. nice stock sound from the exhaust not the annoying rumble from load systems of today. sit like a real thoroughbred.

I have truly enjoyed this vehicle from it's handling and excelleration to the sound and looks of the car - it's very fast sitting still. Unfortunately the State Troopers see that too and have been very aggressive toward it and my son who drives it frequently. The only trouble we've had is the clutch recently went, and the tires go quickly (could that be the fault of the teenage driver? probably) The sound system is excelent with both CD and Cassette from the factory and the look under the hood is a pleasure. No complaints.

I traded my 98 prelude for a 98 cobra.The prelude handled better,had better styling,and it's seats were more comfortable..that being said.....the mustang is better.Awesome exhaust note,increadible acceleration.Plain and simple just pure american muscle at its best...
