    Nice, looks like you have taken her pretty far in those years too. Congrats on sticking with the same car for that long while chasing faster times.

    It really is all about the quality of owner more than the quantity. I'm the 4th owner of my '04 and it only had 19K when I got it. It was owned by one lady who drove it, one guy who collected (or so I'm told) and the last guy who I affectionately refer to as a hoarder who never drove it. Thanks cool cobra, she's doing just fine!

    I am the 6th owner. One of those owners was a terrible mechanic...
    The heat exchanger bracket for the blower had the flanges bent backwards and a hole saw was used to cut holes into the front bumper to install nuts for the bolts to mount the heat exchanger.

    A 99 fuel tank was used and two fuel pumps were ghetto rigged in the tank.

    The intercooler piping was plumbed up backwards and copper pipe couplings were used to splice the hose.

    That’s just a start of what I have been against because of one, or multiple of the previous owners short cutting the crap out of mods done to this car.

    I wish I had a way to find the original purchaser of my car.

    2nd owner. Bought it 3 years old with 2k on the odo. Was originally sold out of the dealer I still work for to an employee and her hubby. They also lived a block down from my folks. Traded often. When he swapped this for a Cadillac, I scooped it up. It was as close to buying a brand new one as I would ever get.

    2nd owner. OO was an old salt from Waltham who bought it new then sold it to me 2 years ago. He had a few tasteless mods done that I’ve since cleaned up. The rest of the mods are all me

    2nd owner. Bought it in 2012 with 18k miles and currently has 22k. When I was searching before I bought mine I was ready to buy one with 30k but changed my mind after carfax showed it was on its 6th owner and had been registered all across the country. I just didn’t like the fact that it had changed owners so many times with that few miles.

    i'm the 5th owner.

    while poking around, i found the paperwork from when the first guy bought it.

    mine needed some tlc too...i've been improving it as much as budget allows. the worst part of the car now is the paint. clear coat is oxidizing in a few spots and peeling off the rear bumper. the front bumper needs replaced too.

    Same age as you my fellow senior citizen, only difference is I took mine home on Sept. 6th 2002, currently has 2252 miles on it. All mods are stealth unless you know what too look at.

    Yep, woke up one morning and found myself in geezerville. I bought my first Cobra, a Black Coupe, in late Sept of '02. Traded that for a Sonic Blue Coupe in March of '03. I traded that for the '04 Mystichrome Coupe. The Mystichrome is not going anywhere till I take the dirt nap, then my Will has specific instructions for the Cobra's next home.

    Ok looks like it's all over the board. But saying cobra's with 1-3 owners are a little closer to stock with less miles, seems appropriate

    Mine being a 6 or 7 owner car so far. The 3rd/4th starting modding the car, The 4th/5th owner sold off/blew the stock motor and sold off the Eaton, IRS and the transmission. With 48k miles on the odometer in 2012. He bought the Aluminator, Magnum, rear end, axles, drive shaft. a p1 pro charger and a bunch of other stuff.

    He did a lot of the work and Brad's custom auto helped out when he got stuck.
    Then a couple years later he sold it after only putting a couple thousand miles on it.

    it was sold complete minus the P1 procharger in 2015. Then the guy that bought it. Brought it back to Brad's custom auto. Where in 1 year he put more then 25k into it. Making it where she sits today. Minus the rims/tires and the N2MB wot box.

    The car came with time slips in the 13's-12's and mid 11's. Looking forward to getting her in the 10's and 9's. While in my possession.

    I agree with more owners come more problems and the unknown. One of the reasons I bought mine is because the 6" binder full of receipts and a majority of the $ parts are only a couple years old with low miles on them. Figured worse case I could part it out. But that's not happening now.

    Fourth owner here, got my 03 SB in 2010 fro Hi-End auto with 48,000 miles. Wife picked her out and I have to say she had a better eye than me that day. Not too sure about the first 3 owners except 2 were in VA and 1 was in PA. 72,000 miles now with no major issues except my bumper paint being jacked up from the factory drilled plate holder.
