Default All Good Things Must Come To An End

Been thinking about this for the last few months and come spring time, the Cobra will go up for sale.

It's been a kick ass 5 years and I will never forget the fun I have had with the car. Got to take the trip of a life time in it. Don't really have a bucket list, but the car and the trip would be on it if I had one.

And before anyone askes, no, I'm not replacing it with anything. At most I will retire in 4 years come this November and a toy of this nature just does not fit in our retirement plans.

And one big factor is the weather here. For the most part the car sets 9 months of the year. I do take it out in the winter, but it's not fun and it's only to warm up and circulate the fluids.

Damn, this is going to be hard.

You know what's best, big fella.

Sorry if this song is cliche'. But, it's one's my faves for this kyn'a thing.


Fuckin' song always makes me cry............

Hope you enjoyed her for those 5 years, Johnny.

Peace, babies.

Part of it will depend on who wins the election and the economy, but right now I'm thinking $51,000.

And that will include a shit load of spare parts, and all the upgrades. For that price.........

Hell, here is the list I put together today.

• STAINLESS SPECIALTIES SIDE PIPES
• AVON TIRES
• QA1 SHOCKS AND SPRINGS 400#
• COBRA VALLEY SWAY BARS AND CUSTOM MACHINED SOLID MOUNTS
• TOOL KIT
• TIRE KIT AND GRIOT’S GARAGE COMPRESSOR
• CAM RELEASE RJS 5 POINT BELTS
• ALUMINUM AND POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL QUICK JACKS
• CHROME OVER RIDER BUMPERETTS
• 2 CUSTOM MACHINED VIDEO OR CAMERA MOUNTS
o DASH MOUNT
o ROLL BAR MOUNT
• 4 EXTRA SUN VISORS (NEW)
• 2 EXTRA WING WINDOWS
• SCREW IN ROCKER STUDS
• ROLLER ROCKER ARMS
• FULL SET OF HOLLEY JETS FOR TWO CARBURETORS
• 2 HOLLEY 660 MECHANICAL CENTER SQUIRTER CARBURETORS
• MSD MECHANICAL ADVANCE DISTRIBUTOR
• FRONT PLATE MOUNT
• TOP AND SIDE WINDOWS
• TONNEAU COVER
• FINNED COBRA VALVE COVERS
• FELT LINED INDOOR CAR COVER
• WATER RESISTANT OUTDOOR CAR COVER
• EXTRA TAIL LIGHT HOUSING AND LENSES (NEW)
• TWO EXTRA SPEEDOMETER GEARS
• ROCKER ARM POLY LOCKS
• VOLTAGE REGULATOR
• CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER
• DIFFERENT AIR CLEANER SET UP
• SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOUSING
• INBOARD CV BOOTS (2X)
• SPARE WING WINDOW HARDWARE
• G-TECH PRO SS (NEW)
• CORNER WEIGHT SCALE SET
• OTHER MISCELLANEOUS STUFF

There are two things that will hold off the sale. The color. A lot of people want blue or red. The other is the engine. Those without a clue think the 460 based engine is a truck enging. They also think it's heavy.

Just last weekend I loaned my corner scales to couple other guys with SPF's and they have small blocks. We only got one done, but he was less than 100 pounds lighter than I am, and the front/rear weights were within .5%.

Big blocks rule.

Wasn't really planning on trading the Cobra, but it just ended up happening that way. Which was fine for me, I hate selling things.
