Ed, Bob, Tony & Karl - Thank you for the advice and insight. First, I live in the Northeast Phoenix area and my Backdraft Cobra has a Roush 427R motor with 550hp and 535 torque, per Roush.

I grew up on working on a dairy farm so I do know how to turn a wrench. Despite what my father says, I do know which end of the wrench to grab. :-) So while I can and will do some of maintenance on my own I am self-aware enough to know there are things I don’t know I don’t know. I value the experience of someone who regularly works on cobras who has likely seen some common issues so he/she knows what to look for when they are servicing the next one, maybe mine.

Also, there maybe maintenance/service items I don’t want to do myself like replacing brake pads (which may need replaced sooner rather than later…these cars are FAST!!), adjusting the suspension or rebuilding the carb. Stuff like that.

Thank you all again for taking time to respond. I appreciate it!
