    Help Me Decide...

    Ok, so i am going to be keeping my 98, and making it my track car. the one i can beat up, and hammer on. but i am selling off the wifes suv, and she is taking over my "other" car. so, i am in the market for another mustang. i love the 98 so much that i want to get another mustang. but i want the new one to be more of a daily driver car, and something a little more unique than just a gt. so, i have nailed down the choices to two cars, either a 03 grabber blue mach 1, or a sonic blue 03 cobra. i know the ins and outs of both, and the equipment used on both. so what i am asking is what do you guys think? i will be using what ever i get to commute back and forth to work, and leaving fairly close to stock, so what do ya think will be my best bet?

    thanks for any and all input!!

    If your going for rarety there were less Machs then Cobras. If its just for a DD that a blast to drive go with the cobra after all it comes with a blower and a 6sp stock! Either way you won't be disappointed.

    Go with the cobra. With just a 2.93, CAI, Catted X ,and Cat Back I ran 11.8 at 119. You can't go wrong, but either way they are both nice cars.

    exactly...thats my problem. lol. originally started this with a cobra in mind, but started thinking about getting a mach, mainly since the wife alotted 25k, using the extra for a pro charger for the 98. see, that doesn't sound too bad either.

    The good thing about a cobra is the forged internals. You can't run 17 lbs on a stock Mach block. It is all a matter of how fast you want to go. I always say overbuy the first time. LOL

    nah, i wouldn't put the sc on the mach, the next stang i get will be left mainly stock. with maybe a few things. i am gonna go nuts on the 98, and make it an all out drag car, thus i would put the pro charger on it. not the new car. either way i want to end up with a supercharged car.

    If its mainly a back and forth to work car ,go with the Mach. Which would you want to risk on the road more the Mach or a Cobra?

    very true. thats been the thought. plus i need something that get some kind of gas milage. i mean, i am not going to bitch about gas milage, especially when i want a car with a v-8, but, you know what i mean.
