    daily drivers?

    everyone smiles at a garage kept car that just sits.your cars story is dull....my last car was a 1986 olds 442..850,000 before putting to rest.this car is remember by so many people....this cobra of mine has been great hope to make it to 500k...its also cheaper to rebuild this car than to pay for just gas and insurance for 5 yrs on a new cobra.....DO YOU THINK I CAN NOW DRIVE ANYTHING OTHER?????????

    Sorry.... not intentionally trying to bust your nards man... :D

    Only reason I'm so interested in seeing the odometer picture is because if you really have that many miles on your '03 then it's a record in the terminator community! :nice:

    So the real question is How does it run with near 200K on it? and do you have any Mod's done? or is it stock?

    I would love to know the story!

    Thanks,

    Matt
    Daily driving an '03 about 3K miles a month!!!

    Was that 404/408 measured on a Mustang dyno or are you using the "canned" Predator tune? Reason I ask is your HP/TQ is a little low for those mods.
