'65 Shelby Cobra Replica — Classic timeless looks that never fails to turn heads where ever it goes. Nothing compares to building your own muscle car from the ground up and then taking it out for a hot lap around the neighborhood. This car is the definition of "fun to drive".

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Hand built race car for the street. Built this car myself in my garage (except for paint). At just over 2,100 lbs, with 300HP, 5 speed manual and a short wheelbase this car is a blast to drive. Classic old school looks with modern performance and reliability.

Cons: Don't know what was more fun, build it myself or driving it.

The Dream Car. Even Six Year Old Boys Who Don't Know What It Is Begin Learning And Drooling — Feels like the wayback machine. Handling is not great as it is nose heavy but in a straight line it will produce some good G forces. 8 webers plus high performance camshaft and lookout 8 mi to the gallon!!!!!! It is an ERA replica built in 1991

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: sit down, hold one, shut up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: you've got to be kidding

Fantastic — I love the Cobra, its been a dream car for me for more than 20 years and I finally have one. The car hangs on like a go cart and because it has Jaguar suspension it has a really smooth ride.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun

Cons: Not too

If You Have The Balls, This Car Is A Blast — stroker 427 side oiler big block with 4 speed top loader tranny and salsberry rear end. makes over 600hp on 110 octane and 700+ lbs. of torque at 6300 rpm. barely streetable, 4 inch straightpipes, full race brakes and suspension by ford racing. red with black stripes and 19' black americans on BFG Gforce T/A's. 3.5 miles to the gallon, change plugs and oil religiously. this car is scary fast and incredibly fun.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: it'll beat 99% of all cars on the road

Cons: scares the bejesus out of everyone

A $500k+ Car For Under $40k — I bought this car as a kit and it arrived at my home on June 14, 2007. It took me three months to build in my dads garage. The kit came with everything the final car would have except: rims, tires, engine, engine accessories, and a transmission. I put a Ford 351W small block in the Cobra. The 427ci big block has more weight and it is possible to get more than enough power out of a 351. Acceleration 0-60: 4.0 sec (probably less if I shifted faster) The breaks are more than fine since the car weighs a little more than 2k lbs. It has one squeak up front...I cant find it. I'm putting the rugs in today and I'm replacing the center aluminum panel with plexi-glass so you can see the transmission, drive shaft, and the road. The outside of the car...is not painted. Gas mileage is between 14 and 20 mpg. Yes, its a Cobra...it is fun to drive.

Pros: Everyone says "Cool car!" or "Cool car!...What is it?

Cons: If it rains, you get wet
