    TMI Chicane Seats Do Fit in a 94-98 Vert

    I'm posting this because there's been some trepidation about TMI chicane seats in a vert before 99. So, about three months ago, I ordered TMI chicane seats for my Cobra vert from CJPonyParts. I got the saddle color. They told me that it would take approximately 2-2.5 months for the order to...

    Need advice - Keep or Partially Fix & Sell?

    I have a stock 97 Cobra vert with just over 77k miles. I'm trying to decide if I should fix the thing and keep it or fix the a/c and top and sell it. I like the car but it doesn't hold the same appeal to me it used to and I need something with more space. Also, I don't even know what I should...

    97 Cobra vert repaint

    Hey guys, I wanted some opinion on repainting my car. I have rock chips and the paint on the front bumper is getting thin on the left front corner. It's time for a repaint. It's E8 and has no real dmg at all. I've read around that the original paint was a three stage and that most, if not all...

    I just cant win...

    A week ago I was involved in a wreck where an old geezer pulled out in front of me, totalling my winter beater and leaving me stranded 10 hours into a 12 hour trip. That was last Saturday. As if that wasn't enough, life decided to pack a pineapple in the old potato gun of life and fire an...

    Road trip gone wrong

    Yesterday, I left home at 5:30am for a fairly long road trip to spend Christmas with my daughter and my mother. I took my beater car, an ugly green 97 taurus. Reliable car, decent mpg. Roomy....and ugly so no one will steal it. Perfect winter car! Anyhow, 10 (TEN!!) hours into my 12 hour...

    Zip Tying IMRCs

    OK, I know how to do this. I've read the How To, I've seen the pics. However.....doing this is much harder than anyone likes to admit. The driver's side went pretty quickly but it's the passenger's side that's a biatch. I've managed to get the zip tie around the IMRC but it slips off...

    realistic approach to 400RWHP N/A

    id like this thread to be a realistic approach to attaining 400rwhp in a cobra thats still streetable [ie, it can idle for 10 minutes in 100 degree heat and not explode] and doesnt require 8000rpm to make power AND use b heads. think of this as an acedemic exercise and possibly a repository for...

    Minneapolis Cobra owners

    Is there anyone in the Twin Cities area that has a 96-98 or 99-01 Cobra with 4.10 gears or steeper? I'd like a ride along to get an idea of what they're like. I've done the math, seen the charts, and read 1 million opinions. I'm looking for something tangible. Thanks.
