Ford SVT MUSTANG COBRA CONVERTIBLE
What's better than a drop-top drive in a Mustang convertible? Not much, unless that Mustang is an SVT Cobra packing punch to blast you into another dimension. Yes, the chassis shakes like Santa's belly and the clutch requires near-Superman strength to operate. But, there's a twisted satisfaction from wringing out such a primal machine. Even with all the vibration and drama, the Cobra exhibits dynamic balance rarely found in street-legal, factory cars, and the supercharger's whine prompts a grin every time you stand on it. You can't outrun Old Man Winter, but he'll work like hell to catch you.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
