Hi A/S65,

Here's a link to some pics for you. Also, check "Homecoming" or "Cobrafest" pictures on the Unique website and I'm sure you'll find more.

Mike Del's Images - Unique Forum Gallery @ http://www.uniquecobra.com/gallery

I've enjoyed the car and the camaraderie. Great cars, great people. What more could you ask for?

Thank You Sir!
It's been a lot of fun!
BTW those pics are just snapshots and nothing special.

Taking all that has already been discussed about Unique Motorcars and then factoring in the pure ease and speed of the build process, the Unique Deluxe Pallet Kit is absolutely one of the very best values among the quality 'glass replicas.

As for the droopy butt; IMO in the world of Cobras (as opposed to the other world), a drooping derriere is a good thing. I'm no fan of the Contemporary Classic DNA that spawned the high-arse, tall-sided look that spread throughout the replica industry because manufacturers like SPF and others believed the heavily sectioned and modified Contemporary body was the gold standard for accuracy.

I tend to agree with you. Here's Mike's 289 Unique rear versus my 427 ERA rear. I do think the drop in the Unique's rear looks a little "racier."

How about comparing a 289 to a 289 or 427 to a 427, not a 289 to a 427?

Because I was trying to bait someone in to asking that stupid question. The comparison is for a "generalized look" at droopy versus non droopy tails.

I'm actually disappointed. When I first saw patrick's reply on my phone, I was expecting something more like this

Chas - not sure, but I suspect you're just trying to see if patrick will pass de test by resisting the impulse to to post another awful play-on-words comeback.

Nice comparison of the “rears” but to be fair, we need to critique the headlights as well….

I don't know - Unique looks just a tad to perky there to me to be representative of the droopy rear comments. I think that might really be MK III FFR.
