    Hello to all. I have a 1970 mach but am interested in a 03 cobra with low miles. Have done some internet reading on issues and suprised to find quite a few concerns. Looking for un biased opinion on car as a whole. The one I am looking at is 03 vert aniversary one owner.

    Thanks

    I bought an 04 last summer, and have really enjoyed it. The seats are awesome in my opinion, but the factory shifter had to go - reaching for 5th and reverse was something to behold. Sub frames should be mandatory.... Gaining 100 hp was as easy as a pulley, intake tube and tune.... I've also been getting 21 mpg around town with that extra 100 hp.

    as a whole awesome..

    ours is a daily driver..90% or more is still original at 340,000 miles..even clutch is original..

    problems

    drivers side head..on 3rd head now..

    rear end cover leak..

    ours is stock with exhaust and small handheld bump..ran 12.9@114,get 20mpg cant ask for more from stock

    other opinion its to small..i feel trapped when having seatbelt on..i like bigger cars ,,,vert might feel different i have coupe
