I have lusted after these cars since the first time I saw one, well, actually a poster of one.  That was 33 years ago.  I could have built a kit Cobra, and I looked at all of them. But when I saw a Superformance Cobra, I knew there was no way I could build a car of that caliber for that money, even with my free labor.  I was still just dreaming of getting a Superformance Cobra when I started an ongoing search on Ebay two years ago.  But, when the stock market tanked, my wife and I decided it was time to move some of our remaining money into a more stable investment.  When the right car showed up on Ebay, we bought it sight unseen.  I wouldn't recommend buying any  kit  Cobra sight unseen, but with a Superformance you can be certain that you are getting a well built, solid, and reliable car with a factory fit and finish that s second to none. I guess it goes without saying that owning my dream car couldn't have happened without the support of my wife.  After 26 years of watching me go crazy every time I saw a Cobra I think she actually got the bug too.  In fact, as we got closer to getting our Cobra, she cut her hair shorter and shorter until she achieved the perfect Cobra coif; capable of enduring the hurricane force winds that are common in a Cobra cockpit.  Now that s a supportive wife!
