    Go figure as it is almost 24 years old. :D

    I drove it yesterday and no numbers are showing on the great dashboard clock. It has lost the fuel cell, lost the LF anti-lock brake thing, and now the clock!

    Nonetheless, it still runs as good as it did 24 years ago.

    It was not long ago when I owned a 1994 Cobra which is shown here at Sebring, FL:

    I am almost at a loss due to this tragic situation. :D

    This is one of two cars delivered to upstate New York. I experienced a clock and fuel cell failure in my first 23 years of ownership! 95R2017.JPG 95R2017a.JPG

    It's time to for us......
    I am sure that we can go faster than any C4 Corvette.

    Likely a cheaper fix than the fuel cell

    I think so since the only almost fast C4 made was the 1995 Corvette ZR-1 (448 made). The Corvette C4 is still ugly and slow.

    I replaced the leaking fuel cell with a stock tank (still have the original one). I am not fixing the clock.

    I bought the 95R for the unique drivetrain and light body weight. Nothing has changed here.

    I also bought an extra set of wheels, many hub assemblies, front calipers, front and rear brake pads, and other various parts when I had a wholesale Ford parts account.

    Its a fun car. I went the Glenns performance route. Wanted it to look like the cell was still there

    I've never meet anyone around here that knew it was a Cobra R, and they didn't know about the fuel cell.

    I just found out that I have no digital pictures of the car with the fuel cell as they are all on film images. I do have this picture from the 2009 Cobra R Reunion at Chicago. I'd say my fuel cell leaked out sometime after 2010...

    I am the 6th car from the left and the fastest one....:D

    That pic is from Gingerman back in ‘03?

    That’s my car on the far right with no front splitter

    Gingerman in 03?

    Is that when we were there? I was thinking it was a couple years later. I'm not in that photo. And, I don't recognize the background.

    I see Todd for sure.

    I didn't know I had a clock in the 95. Where is it? Maybe Ill go look. Mostly when I'm beating that car, I'm checking the fuel gauge.
