After much delibration... I decided to hold out for the Cobra next year. I'm only hoping that it's release won't be delayed any longer then that. I have based this decision on a few factors. - Any first year "bugs" will come to light and I'm more then confident Ford will address them aggressively. - This will be my First Brand New car owned and what better way then to break in a Cobra (or the equivelent if the Cobra name is dropped). - After much research, think I perfer the IRS. I'm not a dragster and won't be modifing my 'Stang. At least I don't plan too. - With the current model putting out 390hp... drooling over the possiabilities. - I love how Cobra's stand out in a pack. - With my current rate of savings, I will be able to buy an '06 Cobra CASH$$$. No car payments for me. My bank will even work it as a loan using my own $$$ so it still looks great on my credit report!!! - And the last reason... COME ON MAN... IT'S A COBRA!!!!!! Just curious how many of ya'll will be doing the same. We could even have group sessions to keep each other on track as these incrediable '05s start hitting the streets.
