    CAR IS NOT FOR SALE! Moderators can remove at their discretion!

    It kills me to say that I am posting my car up for sale. I have told countless people, several of which on this forum, I would never sell this car. As much as I am having sellers remorse already considering the car is just going up for sale stings. The reason this car is going up for sale is that I was in a severe snowmobiling accident seven weeks ago. My fiance and I have been searching for a house and now with the accident the idea of the car staying and buying the house just aren't realistic with the medical bills piling up.

    Anyways, on to the good stuff. I bought the car from Blueline (well known contributing member on here who is known for owning and selling some of the cleanest, low mile cobras this site has came accross) after selling my lower mileage 10th TR cobra. As much as I loved the Torch Red 10th, DSG was my number one pick when looking for my first cobra. Low and behold, sold my 10th to a close friend and bought the car from Blueline. I am officially the third owner purchasing the car in May, 2014 with 6543 miles, though the second owner only owned the car 6 months and put 243 miles on the car. The original owner was from Texas and took unbelievable care of the car only installing 2.93 pulley, catback, CAI, full length sub-frames, diff brace, and canned tune in the 10 years he owned the car. EVERYTHING from the minute this car left the showroom floor was logged and dated with receipts. Blueline continued that when he bought the car and so did I. Many members on the forum have seen this car in person at meets and car shows and can vouch for its condition. It is very clean, well cared for, and tastefully modded.

    For full disclosure, the car has had a total of 5 passes at the local track (three slips I have posted) and been on the dyno twice in its whole life (also video and pictured above. These were all for tuning purposes and to see how the car responded after modifications. The car was never repeatedly beaten or abused and adequate cool times were allowed in all hits/passes. Best numbers on the dyno was 522rwhp/472rwtq with a best run in the 1/4 11.78 @ 120.60 with MT ET Streets at 18psi which is not too shabby at all considering. The car makes great power and runs unbelievably smooth.

    The mod list I will be putting together below by appearance and performance in the order they were installed (this is all fully documented).

    The car is for sale for xx and I am pretty firm on this at this moment as I am not in a rush to sell and know what I have. The car comes with a bunch of its factory parts, ALL documentation, two original keys and fobs, original floor mats, and brand new car cover. Also, comes with factory wheels and tires which have been stored inside under blankets. Please don't hesitate to PM me here or give me a call/text a (908)-528-6three4one. I am happy to answer any questions regarding the car. I have absolutely nothing to hide regarding the car. Thank you for your time. Pictures are below, was limited to 20 pictures but will post links to the two photoshop albums below as well. There are more pictures of parts installs and the previous wheel setups.

    Wow, sorry to hear about the accident, hope you get everything sorted.

    I have seen the car in person multiple times. If ever there was a car to embody the word "mint" it would be this car. There is not much more to say about it. It will make someone very happy, sorry to see it go.

    Very sad Nick....... Sometimes in life you are the dog and sometimes you are the hydrant. Sucks so much about the snowmobile crash and the extent of your injuries. I am glad you are healing up good and totally feel your pain on the sale of the car, its the right move for you and the wife.

    Guys, this car is MINT, many members on here know my definition of mint and will chime in. If there is an out of state buyer, buy with confidence the car is everything Nick says it is. If I did not just buy another toy this would already be in my garage.

    If anyone needs help with purchasing the car, specific video or pics let me know I can help out. I know Nick is on the mend so he may not be able to get around too much, but I can shoot over to his house and assist in the sale any way I can. I have great shipping companies too that I have used in the past.

    Sorry to hear Nick, but when things settle down in the future you will get back into something. Let me know if I can be of any help bud!

    If it sells within the next 2-3 weeks and the buyer wants to buy without those wheels, I'd be a buyer for them. I'll be buying that exact setup soon.

    Anyway, good luck with the sale.. Looks MINT.

    GLWS! Beautiful car and sorry to hear about your accident. There was a lot of snowmobile accidents this year up in my neck of the woods due to poor trail conditions. If for any reason the drag setup ends up being separated from the car let me know I'd be interested depending on the price.

    Going to pull the car off the market. Going to do whatever I can to try to keep this thing as I do not want to let it go. Thanks for everyone who was interested and all the kind words from the members on here. When time is free, I will be posting in the terminator section!

    Very sorry to hear about your snow mobile accident; happy to hear that you're recovering. You almost (likely) made a mistake selling it and then profoundly regretting the sale soon after. That is one gorgeous and nicely modded DSG Cobra. I can see why you now want to keep it. How is your recovery/rehab? Are you still facing medical procedures or are you now continuing your rehab.

    Thanks, bob. Love the shifter gaskets too by the way! As for the recovery it is slow, or maybe I am impatient. All of the injuries are healing good and the docs are happy about that but the TBI (traumatic brain injury) is the last real snag here keeping me from work and a normal life. I am getting headaches, light sensitivity, and insomnia. They just put me on a steroid that is supposed to reduce inflammation and help with those side effects which is actually working, so heading toward the right direction now.

    Gorgeous car -- you would regret every single day you sold this... I still regret selling my 23k mile 03 GT, even though it wasn't a cobra. Good luck with your recovery.
