65 Cobra 427 replica

I am starting this thread to cover the newest addition to the Walgy house.

I have covered many points about it already but will fill in more detail here.

I see nothing to show it is fake but from the picture it is impossible to tell without more detail.

Most of the replicas have fiberglass bodies but there are some that have alloy like the originals. Some are also very true to the original in mechanical details as well. The Alloy bodies start a bit over 100K evan second hand.

Mine is completely different mechanically and structurally than most replicas in that it has an all aluminum frame and the floor and ds tunnel are welded to the frame to provide additional stiffness.

Since I am not home I can link to the advertisement for pictures.

Jeez Tom, that looks like it's going to be quite the handful!

How did you convince the missus let you purchase it?

I just told her it was sortof a slightly different Miata.

She REALLY likes the color too.

It will be a handful if you get too loose with the accelerator pedal!
