Fun To Drive — This car corners on a dime with great acceleration. Not bad for a stock vehicle . The six speed transmission is a bit much. I did a lot of fourth to sixth shifting. At very high speed the rear end gets a little loose and wanders.

A Dream Car For Most — If you have ever wanted a fast, rare, reliable car with a back seat, but as fast as a corvette; This is the car for you! Everytime I stop to get fuel, many people approach asking details and if it was for sale.....

Pros

Easy to mod for big power.  I currently have a 2.8H Kenne Bell on mine with 620rwhp

Cons

The IRS needs a lot of modification to withstand the power the motor can make.

Love The Car For The Price. There Are Many Available With Low Miles. Cant Beat The Terminator! — The motor is indestructable and is capable of big power gains with little effort or money. The only downside is the IRS. Great looking car with a big reputation is the racing world. Throw on a whipple or kenne bell and you will most likely never lose.

I Loved It While Gas Prices Were Low, It Was A Real Eye Turner — 2004 Ford Mustang Mystichrome Cobra Convertible with 35,000 actual miles and a few performance upgrades. If the 390 horsepower from the factory isn't enough for you a nitrous system has been hooked up, but never used. If the supercharged 4.6 liter is plenty of power then the nitrous can be removed and sold! AutoMeter gauges, a battery shut off, A/C, AM/FM/CD player, automatic convertible top, cruise, tilt, leather, power steering, power brakes, power locks, power seats, power windows, traction control, keyless entry, radial tires, and aluminum alloy wheels make this car a blast to drive. Ford did not make too many of these Mystichrome Cobras, and ever fewer convertibles. This car runs 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and the quarter mile in 12.6 from the factory! Only 515 of these convertibles were made in this color and they are already a collector item.

Thrill of acceleration and supercharger whine.

Best Bang For Buck. Runs With Cars 3x The Price And More. — Stupid straight line acceleration. Great handling and breaking. 6-speed manual. Interior is decent, seats are high quality buckets with swede inserts and are 8 way adjustable. Blue/Green lit white faced SVT gauges are a nice touch with boost gauge stock upper right. Aftermarket red LED shift light. 275 width tires all around, able to roast them in going 50. 26 mpg highway when not being pushed!

Wheel hop happnes unless you upgrade the suspension.

No Equal — Best bang for your buck. It is good to know sometimes that you are the baddest car on the road. With a few upgrades, you can be smoking anything on the road. Just don't try to make a quick turn.
