USAF-Sergeant, You are a stronger man than me (on several levels, especially because of your military service - thank you)! I was originally going to wait for the next special edition, but the look of the GT coupe at the Detroit Auto Show locked it in for me. Information floating around seems to suggest that the top-dog Mustang would be faster than the '03-'04 Cobras. If the GT will be close to the current Mach 1, the next special edition will be close to the '03-'04 Cobras, then the Cobra (or whatever it will be called) should be positively wicked. Hang in there...I'll have to live vicariously through you when you get the Cobra!
