    In 2000 I paid 17000 for a '96 with 46K on the clock. She's laser red with black interior. Best investment I ever made! Right now she's got 144K on her and is fixing to get an engine rebuild.

    I paid 11,500 a couple of months ago for my 1998 with 44.5k on the clock. It had a full stalker body kit, Steeda T/A and pulleys, Bilstein shocks and eibach springs when I got it.

    Dang, cobra_fanatic... 25,000 miles per year on a Cobra? If I have to start driving that much I'm getting me a 1996 Honda Civic to be my daily driver, spare the Cobra some nasty miles.

    :banana: I paid 16250 for my 98 white vert in Jan 2004. It had 46k miles on it, bone stock, one owner no modifications done. Quite happy with my price, still smells factory new inside.

    $17.5 in 1999 with 17K miles. What I find interesting is that no one is saying that they bought theirs new.

    12k for my '97 Black on Black Cobra with 46k miles on it. Sweet all around car, but here are some problems that plagued it:

    1)Faded front bumper with bug scars on it
    2)Messed up transmission ($800 worth of work needed)
    3)Dying rear end
    4)Needed new clutch/throwout bearing


    So in the end the car was an "ok" deal.

    12k for my '96 convertible svt w/ 51k miles in March, 2004... After lots of haggling. I'm in Colorado also (little demand because of the snow). I love her, but I'm sure the synchros are bad. Otherwise wonderful.

    19K in november of 97, car had 34.5k on her. Got it from a lexus dealer, it was lady owned. I talked to her about the cooling problems right after I passed 36K and out of warranty that next summer. She said it never got hot on her, it damn sure got hot on me.

    Just picked up a 98 in fantastic condition from a small dealership. They were asking $11,000, I paid $11,500 out the door, tax, license and brand new registration included. The car shows 106000 miles but is in very near perfect condition...not a drop of any liquids showing anywhere underneath and the motor still zooms to 7000 rpm with no effort. I love this car!
