Must Have — I used to own one, sadly I sold it while in college... had to pay for college some how right? Anyways I bought it out of a junkyard, just had some minor frame damage but needed a new door, quater panels, front fender, bumper, headlamps.. etc.. only paid 1,900 for it but cost just over 5 grand to fix it up. Most of the parts were from junkers, and few aftermarket pieces. Anyways, gas consumption is somewhat of a issue if you don't mind forking out the cash for gas but its a heck of a fun car to be driving around during the weekends to show off or cruise around in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a Ford! Custom body kit, lowered, weight reduced, aftermarket headlamps / tail lights / seats.

Cons: Gas consumption. Maintenance, I always kept it clean as possible and always changed the oil within 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever was first.

Get It If The Tranny Has Be Swapt Out Or You Feel Confident With It. Could Get A Good Deal On One — Good car, minus the POS 5 speed transmission. It was not a T5 like the past Cobras and GTs, but it was not the badass T56 found in later Cobras, Vettes, Vipers, ect. I went threw 4 of them, with two of them dying just weeks after replacement. It was a good car, and I had a blast owning it as such an early age. Alot of my best car moments happened in this one.

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

Pros: Good looking, fun and its the last of the NA powered Cobras

Cons: The TRANSMISSION

Aftermarket Parts Are Expensive Fun Overall Worth It — This car has been put through hell on the track and the original motor still hasnt givin up. Its close to 140k so rebuild is in the works as well as a single turbo. gas mileage is what as expected from a V8.. bad.

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

Pros: decent handling, decent power from factory

Cons: tickets

Timeless — Love the car but after racing the Z06 it just wasn't the same. Still is handles really well, looks great, and sounds amazing. Little easier on the pocket book for someone wanting a sporty car and trying to decide what to get.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfort and looks and performance

Cons: not a good choice for the snow  :)

2001 Cobra — I love this car. My only thing would be to tell you to definitely make sure you buy the correct kind of brake pads WITH the clips attached to them. The auto parts stores will just try to sell you regular pads. This car is very fun to drive! Gas mileage is something to be desired but that is expected, right?

Pros: Fun!

Cons: Not great on gas

2001 True Blue Svt Cobra — Performance: Acceleration is good and the power comes on smooth, it could use a little more, but I plan to remedy that with a set of gears, and full bolt-ons until boost can be afforded. Its braking is solid and feels much more planted than the straight axel mustangs. The irs may not be the best, but I consider it to be a vast improvement over the SRA. Build quality...well it's a ford mustang, and some hate the interior squeaks and the sporty ride, I however don't mind either as it is a mustang after all. It is supposed to be brute and a little rough on the edges. Appearance: the interior upgrade over the standard mustangs is nice, the cobra tailoring is very nice. The ext is pretty standard with the difference of the front bumper and rear bumper(being embossed with COBRA). The front bumper is one of my favorite ones to be put on a mustang. Fun factor: well it's a convertible, it's got a v8, it has a 5spd and a loud exhaust, what else could one really want. 5 out of 5 for fun to drive!

Pros: Fast, V8, Convertible

Cons: IRS bushing could be harder/more performance oriented
