I received 1002 to replace my previous 729, and while the search for my first Superformance led me on an exhausting 2 year deliberation looking at every Cobra replica possible, for my next Superformance, it was a decision made without any hesitation. I could not imagine owning anything else regardless of the price. Being a perfectionist by nature, the Superformance was perfect because I have come to discover that designer and builder and owner of the factory, Jimmy Price, is also the epitome of the ultimate perfectionist. The end result, is the best Cobra I could ever imagine owning, whether a replica or original. Soon after I received my Cobra, and hit all the car shows and burger stands I envisioned in my acted out dreams, the question came to me, "now what?" I was starting to wonder what the heck I'd ever use this thing for. It was not long after that meeting with other Superformance Owners on the Owners Association forum, that I found the possibilities were endless. In the past few years in my Cobras, I have visited and enjoyed the best snaky back roads in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The confidence one has in these cars due to it's reliable design and construction, allows you to go anywhere you want, anytime you want. There are no boundaries with a Superformance. The ends of the Earth are your only limits... and going out there and fining them is where all the fun is at!
