    Sold my last 1997 Rio Cobra (45k original miles) and bought...

    Another 1997 Rio Red Cobra/ Saddle Interior a few weeks back. Had 16,800 on the clock when I bought her, just rolled over to 17,000 original miles.

    Mods It Came with:

    (1) 2.1 Kenne Bell Supercharger, w/ boost a pump

    (2) Kenny Brown AGS Level 4 Suspension

    (3) Some sort of drop in filter (probably K&N or whatever they included with KB S/Cs back in 2003 (when I believe it was installed).

    (4) American Thunder Cat Back

    (5) B&M short throw shifter (I've had pro 5.0 and MGW in the past, must say I lock how this one shifts best so far)

    (6) Ford Racing Aluminum Drive Shaft

    (7) 3:73 gears

    (8) OEM 95 Cobra R wheels w/ new tread

    (9) 20% window tint

    (10) Black Chrome Cobra Bumper Inserts

    Very nice looking car. Maybe I'll see it around sometime. Are you a member of stlmustangs? If not you should check it out. Lots of local guys who meet up for cruise's, bbq's, car shows, etc.

    I bought it for 12k, I guess that isn't too bad for what it is. Just bought all my Royal Purple Motor Oil (XRP), still deciding on which spark plugs to go with.

    Beautiful Rio Red Cobra! Same exact car as mine minus the mods. I thought I would be hard pressed to find another low mileage SN95, but you got me beat by 12K miles!

    I'm getting ready to put some a JLT Cold Air Kit, new spark plug wires (ford racing 9mm blue) and a total tune up in the next couple weeks. Once I get everything up to date I'll post some photos.
