    Post Sad Day

    Well today was a day I thought would never come. I sold my precious to a Cobra enthusiast from Wisconsin. The last couple of days were sweet sorrow as I prepped her for her long journey to a new Home. I have no regrets and the Cobra is to date the best car I've owned but, it was time to move on to something new. No decisions have been made yet as to her replacement. I plan to stay active in the community and to do so I will need quarterly rides in the Gene Beast. Happy motoring!

    How about one last pic

    That sucks man, but you have to do what you have to do. I'd replace it with an STI or evo 9. Good gas mileage and still pretty quick. Ah who am i to talk? My DD is a 96 nissan pickup that gets the same mpg as the cobra (26 mpg) LOL!

    Going to get a Space Blue Mini Cooper S with Silver roof and mirrors for the wife. When it comes in, about six weeks, I will take possession of the 2004 Dark Silver MCS. In a couple of years I plan to move forward with my plan to build a Factory-Five AC Cobra replica. But for now going back to school and all the traveling the Mini's will be well suited for the concrete jungle.

    Mod plans for the Mini's
    Dinan Intake box
    16% reduction pulley and port for the S/C (possibility of an Eaton M62 upgrade in the future so may go that route instead)
    Megan Racing adjustable coil-over suspension
    Megan Racing rear adjustable control arms (to correct camber from lowering)
    MTH ecu upgrade and header
    larger injectors
    head + cam
    upgrades to the inter-cooler
    eventually nitrous for the DS MCS

    Won't be Cobra power but the power to weight ratio should be very sweet.
