    I got rid of my car years ago and have been looking for it for about 4 years now all over the net and can’t find it any place. Figured I would and see if it’s been seen or if who ever owns it now has been around on here. Last place I knew it to be after it left Florida is in Georgia.

    If you have the vin some on here will be able to track the car, if I’m not mistaken.

    No it wasn’t a super snake. It ended up being a built whipple 4.0 car after many other things along the way.

    Are you looking to buy it back? or???

    There's a very minute chance that it's no longer in the country....
    Back in the mid-90's, I sold a 1987 "20th Commemorative Anniversary Edition" IROC-Z convertible to a woman in northern California. She had the transport company pick up the car at my house. I never met her. A couple of years later, I received a post card from her. The internet was in its infancy then... She moved, and took the car with her.... to New Zealand...! So I suppose you never know!

    Last I know it was sold to a person in Georgia because the own contacted me and the builder of the car. His tuner couldn’t figure out how to tune it. I would love to have this car back I even named my daughter Shelby after it.

    I copied and pasted your VIN into the Google search box and found some sites that say they can give a report on the car (by VIN) accident damage, recalls, Title registrations........etc. for a small price.

    ^^^^You may get a link there.

    What about bringing the VIN to the local Ford dealership? Have them run an OASIS report........If your car has been serviced by a Ford dealership, the report will tell you where it has been serviced most recently (maybe the airbag recall?)......Just a thought.....

    That’s so awesome. I picked up a 97 cobra and started building it because I always wanted to do that body style. But it ain’t the same or have the meaning behind it.
