    I'm pretty sure I've seen that car in person at a local car show.

    Thanks everyone. I built her myself at home in about 3 years. The starting point was the basic Factory Five Racing replica Cobra roadster kit. The kit consists of an unfinished/unfitted body, a very sweet tubular steel space frame chassis, 50 aluminum panels that you rivet and bond to the frame, some suspension parts, seats, lights, steering wheel, some rolls of metal tubing that you cut and bend/flare for brake and fuel lines, and a windshield. The rest is up to you.

    I chose a Ford Racing 340 hp / 330 ftlbs 302 engine and a T-5z tranny, AC and heat, power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes. She weighs about 2250 pounds (400 lbs less than a Mini Cooper or a Miata). This combination performs better to 60 mph and better in the quarter than the original 427 car. It gets between 20 and 24 mpg when driven "normal" besting the 427 engine's 8-12 mpg.

    A Factroy Five replica car with the same engine/specs as mine was tested in Car and Driver:

    0-60 in 3.6 seconds
    1/4 mile 12.2 @117 mph
    1.05G on the skidpad

    To see the entire build, go here: http://www.worldisround.com/articles/123897/index.html

    Yes it sucks during long periods of crappy weather but that's when I fire up the Polks and get some new music to enjoy.

    Someday when I have the time and money I'd love to buy and build one of those Factory Five cars. Seems like so much fun.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    That is just an amazing build. The removable roll bar is really impressive. Your FFR looks great with the bar and even better without.

    I can't imagine that you would ever part with this amazing piece of work, but if you ever have to, please look me up here or on the FFR site. I have been looking and dreaming of a my own build for years, but have recently decided on a 2 year plan of saving for a purchase.

    What a beautiful FFR.

    One of my neighbors down the street has a nice Cobra replica in red. I'm surprised it's still in one piece since he likes to drive like a maniac.

The guy thought it was a kit car and sold it to the pawn shop for $30,000 turns out it was a real shelby cobra that wasnt finished. They put $70,000 into it to get it finished. total investment $100,000 probally worth a couple million saw one on berrett jackson go for 3.4 million. By the way awesome car. Had a chance to ride in a kit cobra with 600hp best ride of my life.:D

    On that episode they took the car to an expert and he told the owner that it was a real Cobra. The guys from the pawn shop convinced him that he would never have the 100K to put it into it to get it up and running. But the owner did know it was a real cobra, not a kit car.
