    Conducting a little survey: How much did you pay for your 96-98 Cobras? How much was the previous owner asking? What was the mileage/condition/extras? And where did you find it? Feel free to post some pics of your Cobras too! :nice:

    I spent a year looking for a Cobra. Finially found the one that I wanted (Lazer Red with black cloth int.) on a Saturn dealership lot. She only has 14K on the clock and looked very clean. Went in and talk to a great sales lady who took me for a test drive. Or at least she held on for a drive. When we got back the manager told me that he had the car on special. After all was said and done, she was 19K out the door. With no money down. That was in Oct. 2001. I paid her off last month. She is all mine now. :D
