Shelby Big Block Cobra — The accelerator on this car is like a grin switch. Step on it and a grin comes on automatically. This car's 550 hp and low 2700 lb weight makes it feel like a real monster in a straight line. The sound is deep and loud like a muscle car from the 60s should. It turns alarms on in cars parked along the way on a ride.

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

Pros: Incredible power!

Cons: 60s handling

Fast And Sporty — My 1966 Cobra is easy to handle, quick acceleration. This car has been garage kept and well taken care of. The seats are black leather. Low maintenance. This car is definately fun to trive. A real head turner with it's sleek body and paint combination. Awesome car !

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

Pros: This car is sharp, classic car and fun to drive.

Cons: There is no reason to avoid this car.

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

Pros: Looks, Engine note, Brakes and Racing records

Cons: Aerodynamics and Speed

Cobra — In my opinion this car is an excellent car. More power than any car needs and weighing in at only1800 pounds this car will melt a set tires. Only problem is the size of the cockpit. Very tiny, but still a great car.

Pros: Power, looks, sound

Cons: Small cockpit, no power brakes, no power steering

Own The Road At 45 Mph. Watch Little Boys Eyes Light Up When They Ask What's That? — It's Awsom. It's a 515 HP go cart. It's a beast you can drive to little leage games.then off to the track. Stop by and get milk on the way home. Kids love to get strapped in and get their picture taken.

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

Pros: It's a cobra!

Cons: Do not get caught in the rain.
