I still haven't seen a clear, concise, and cogent list of what exactly it is you want in your Cobra. You can spend $25k or $125k+. But if you don't tell us what it is you want, then we tend to think that you really don't know what you want other than the old nebulous "a fun car, for nice day driving, sometimes spirited, and maybe a show or two...." If that's really the case, then you're setting yourself up for a huge disappointment as well as taking a financial hit.

Thank you & again good luck on your purchase, what ever that may be, Tom.
Don't forget that a motorhome can make a perfectly good tow vehicle and 'home away from home' while touring the country and enjoying the Cobra.

After 22+ years in the IT services industry I learned the lesson about throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks, usually when someone is unable or unwilling to define what it is they're looking for.

Just my $0.02...

Has it ever been proven, an actual documented case, that a Cobra, GT40, etc. (or any SB100/SPCNS vehicle) that has been registered in CA under the SB100/SPCNS law and then subsequently re-registered in another state, say like NY, came back into CA and was registered again in CA without having to go through the SB100/SPCNS process a 2nd time?

I haven't heard of one.

I often wonder what the percentage of prospective Cobra buyers that come to this site, starting a thread, asking questions, actually purchase a Cobra?

And I can't remember a prospective Cobra buyer debating between buying a Cobra and a motorhome. Typically, it's Cobra vs. Vette, Porsche or a new Shelby GT350. In fact, I'd tell the OP to buy one of those new Shelby GT350R's.

Or, trip to the islands vs. prostate exam, etc.

Here all this time, I thought that's all we have is Ol'Fart's on this site. You mean there's someone that don't remember CCR? There's hope for the future motorheads yet, more electric Cobra's?

Sacrilegious! How could anyone not know and appreciate CCR!

How about leasing a cobra for the summer? Make a rental offer, pay for insurance. These are toy cars & garage queens, low mileage.

Another option is to join a car club. In Los Angeles & NYC, there are several private car clubs. Pay membership fee - about $15,000.

Shouldn't you be out looking at the new 2019 Leaf?

Any owner who "leases" out their Cobra will have a real "come to the Lord" moment when the lessee piles it up and they find out that that their insurance is void. I know of NO policy for a non-commercial use owner that will allow rental much less cover a "pay to play" operator. This in not like Uber and your Leaf. Hey, I think I hear your Lyft app ringing, you have a fare.

Not at all sir; I"m actually quite fond of Pete but just reminding people there is more to his story. As far as the motor home goes I would have to sell my toy hauler first.

Dear patrickt; This one really hurts sort of a kick in the balls! I have a stomach ache right now. That is exactly what I want ! Are you a dream killer? What is wrong with my list?

It's quite simple IMO.

If you want the best fiberglass Cobra replica produced and warrantied by the best replica manufacturer, then buy an ERA.

If you want the best aluminum Cobra replica produced and warrantied by the best replica manufacturer, then buy a Kirkham.

For example, after owning my Kirkham for 10+ years, I had an unnamed part (not Kirkham made, but made by others) that needed replacement because of a defect. Kirkham immediately shipped out this non-Kirkham made replacement part to me (actually to Steve Wood/PANAVIA) right in the middle of the Thanksgiving holiday last year. And BTW, this part isn't cheap.

Ten+ years! That's a better warranty than a brand spanking new house. I've heard here on CC that ERA has the same level of customer service.

Lol, don't be upset cause u have a barn in the sticks with no customers and the bank owns your cars. Mr Hauss passed on your sales pitch.
