Cobra Update Again

We have pretty much finished the Factory Five Cobra we were building with our brother-in-law. Yesterday was the first day out for a test drive. The car is fantastic. A very nice build and a nice piece to own.

So, we now have the GT/CS, a Factory Five Cobra Replica (302 with 350 HP) and a Premier Cobra Replica (428 with 475 HP) for our stable.

Beautiful

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Cool

That's awesome ... now you need to offer "little kids" (or the young-at-heart) some "pony rides" ...

... BTW, Paul, how do you like the Ford Racing 302? I heard nothing but praise about these motors, and know of a few guys that had these put into their cars ... all of them seem very happy with them ...

It was Tony's (my brother-in-law) decision to order the Ford crate racing motor. I am very, very impressed with it. It is a very nice looking engine. Ford had told us that the engine would dyno around 347HP and they were almost right on the money. The heads are huge but makes the 302 look nice under the hood. Sounds great!!

If I were building a car, I would most certainly order one.

Many thanks for everyone's kind responses regarding our latest cobra addition. My brother in-law has had the car basically one week and already has 300 miles on the car!!! They are loving every second.

Thanks again!!
