I have wanted one of these machines for many years. I was introduced to the Cobra in 1976 when the movie Gumball Rally opened. From that day on I had wanted one. December 28 2010 my dream came true when I drove to Pittsburgh in a snow storm to pick up 2850. Owning my SPF Cobra has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. Truly a dream come true and I feel blessed every time I get in her. I owe a great debt of gratitude to my friend Sam Jackson and my Wife Donna for helping me make the best car decision in my life. Thanks Sam for taking the time to discuss your ownership with me. You see I had been researching the different manufacturers for a couple of years and couldn't find anyone with more than 5000 miles on one. Sam had 36,000 and still going. After talking to him for a couple of hours my decision was made and all I needed to do was find the right one. Thanks to my lovely bride, Donna, for talking me out of the Viper. We have put close to 3500 miles on her in the first year and the experience is better than I dreamed. This is the first car I have owned that Donna has wanted to be involved with; I think she loves the  little car  as much as I do.  That was a pleasant surprise. The one benefit I did not expect is how close the owners are and how valuable a resource SCOF has been. What a great group of people.
