This is my 1998 Cobra Mustang which I bought new. I was a young 48, now I am an old 69, coincidently my graduation year. I have lowered it slightly over an inch, put Saleen 17" wheels with 285/30's rear and 265/30's front. Spicer U-joints, Eaton posi. Engine basically stock except for the E-3 spark plugs and K&N air filter...I have driven it all over the western US mostly in it's first 10 years of life. It loves Highway 50 and lots of windy roads in Colorado. It has just over 70,000 and is not driven very much these days. I have to admit, very ashamedly, that the battery died couple weeks ago, even tho I try to take it out at least every couple weeks....Lots of BIG fires in California and Covid...Plus, after 23 years, the A/C did not come on last week! How can that be? No problems for decades and now it won't work!...Just kidding, obviously. Best car I ever owned, despite the fact there are other cars I would prefer owning. Apologies, but it's true. If only I had lots of money, there would be Porsches, Lamborghini's, Ferrari's etc. in the garage! Actually, this car too ... I knew nothing of Cobra Mustangs way back in '98, until the day I decided I wanted to hear the rumble of an American V-8. Went and test drove a GT while the salesman regaled me with Cobra's and that absolutely wonderful 4-Cam aluminum V-8 with 6-bolt mains!! What a mistake THAT was. Next weekend I was at Ford dealership that sold Cobras. There was a line of convertibles and this ONE bright chrome yellow coupe. I was not a fan of it's color, but...who wants a heavy, more expensive, FLEXIBLE convertible?? Not me...Drove it Saturday, picked it up Monday. Now I love it's color, even tho it is much more noticeable than 'arrest me red'. Not that I drive it in a fashion that could get me arrested... It's number 2789 off the assembly line of around 5100. I imagine that there are now less '98 Cobras than it's build number still on the road today.
