IDK if this would be considered a kill just bc I knew I was going to win but the guy was cool and it was still fun.

I finally got my 03 Cobra back, I almost have a unicorn, Its all stock except for a JLT intake and Bassani Muffler back. I recently just put in a B&M ripper shifter, 26 Spline input shaft and Spec stage 3 clutch. Anyways...

I met up behind an M3. I really like these cars for some reason. they remind me of a go kart with some power. He was reving his motor up and I didn't know is he was for real or not wanting to race. The light tunred green and I heard him hit it. I'll admit, he had a pretty good launch. So I stepped into it (in first) I took off (still getting some wheel hop :/) I hit second and went to the left lane to get beside him.

He slowed down to about 45 and honked 3 times. I was in 2nd and hit it hard. I pulled pretty hard. I let off alittle threw third and lined up again. He honked 3 more times and off we went again. I pulled really hard again.

I didn't know why but he wanted to go again. I didn't want to again in fear of another ticket. We wulled up to the next light down the road and he was smiling from ear to ear. I was just excited to finally get into my Cobra. He looked over and said "Man what I would do to have one of those, all i wanted to do was hear the sound of you as you pass me" I smiled and told him he had a great car.

He gave me a thumbs up and went on. Sorry if you read this and thought it was going to be a crazy story. I was just so happy to hear people love my car. I've only had it for about 5 months and I hang out with a lot of import asses that hate it bc it says Ford but none want to race Except when it was gettting the clutch put in. I cant beleive the attention and respect these cars get. I've always wanted a Cobra but damn I think everyone else does haha.

If you've made it this far, A friend of mine has a friend that has an older Nissan Skyline, What is my chance against this car???

Was it a i6 or the v8 m3? Any local meets around you so you can meet some fellow American muscle/sports car drivers? Are you going to mod the car?

Glad to see a M3 owner actually acting cool.

The 03/04 Cobras do still command respect despite now being "old"..........

as the 5.0 guys claim.

I plan on doing light mods to it. It's a dailey driver for right now. there are a couple car meets around here but not really muscle cars. Most people around here are all about the imports, which can be pretty nice, but they talk way too much shit. As soon as they get beat by me or another muscle car they say stuff like "Well I have better gas mileage" or "I'll go get my buddy"

People here are weird sometimes lol, but it was really nice to get the props though

And your 2012 GT is becoming dime a dozen..........cool brahhhh!:bowdown:

Every GT; ever has been a dime a dozen... Cobras are a rariety and are selling for a chunk of change... but they get spanked by stock GT's :D

Put a ORX pipe, and pulley and a tune and you'll have pretty potent daily driver. Might even be able to hang with those new super quick GT's...

oh no....heres goes the 03/04 cobra vs 2011+ 5.0 argument again lol. I don't understand it...I love both cars and are torn between them as to what I wanna buy when I get my next car in a couple years. I'm leaning toward a 2013 GT, although I have wanted an 03 cobra since they first hit the dealerships back when I was 20. Love em both....btw good kill op!

I was just being sarcastic since I saw some others made a few comments on the 03/04 vs 5.0's. I like em both very much so. If I could afford one I'd get a new 5.0 as a DD.

Honestly I like both cars. They both have amazing potential. I like the 03-04 Cobras because I am in love with that body style. I alos like having what other people dont have. I have respect for all muscle cars, especailly ford. I hate the V-6's though. hahaha I gotta hate on those cars.... sorry. but other than that, You can make anythig fast. I've seen smart cars get it hard but Its all about what you want. thank you for the support and the guy in the other car was awesome. I liked his car but thats about the only import i like.

Maybe a rare stock one, if you can find it. Most of them have been modded to the hilt and are thus now relatively worthless.
