Cobra article @ Drive

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I can’t believe that cigarette lighters were an option in the VT Crumbledore. I knew those cars were cheap, but god damn it!!

I think you'll find very very few people option it on ... I think is was a smart move ... I get a useable dash pocket, and don't have a lighter I don't need nor want.

Ford dropping car features to save cash, aid recovery

The Associated Press
5/15/02 3:37 AM


DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- Ford Motor Co. is hoping car buyers won't notice if it removes some features like rear seat ashtrays and map pockets.

The Dearborn-based car company is searching for ways to reduce expenses after losing $5.45 billion last year.

The No. 2 automaker is planning to eliminate a number of features -- without hurting customer satisfaction or reducing quality -- from its vehicles beginning in the 2003 model year as part of a widespread campaign to cut product development costs as much as $2.5 billion

$143,000 turnkey? I'd much rather a GT40 replica, can be had from Roaring Forties (see latest Street Machine) for the same price.

Someone who's after a Cobra/GT40 replica is wanting something VERY different to an M3. :s3
