Dan,

Thoroughly research what your state requires for emissions and for other things like heaters, defrosters, emergency flashers, back-up lights, etc. Some things can be retrofitted quite easily, others not. You want to make sure that what you are buying will meet your states code. Some states have specific codes/regulations for special built or low volume cars, ask if your state has them.

You do not want to buy something that you cannot license or drive. I am pretty certain that there are cobras registered in Illinois, check with a local cobra club or online here to ask other people from Illinois what you are required to have and how to go through the process. Good luck.

By the day, sorting out typically means working out the bugs regarding the engine, suspension adjustments, proper alignment of the engine and transmission, etc.

Jim
