Default Whos got the best body ??

Gentlemen after looking through the huge pile of cobra pic and articles i have, it started me wondering which Australian cobra kit is the closest to the the original ?
I have a Classic Revival ( which is awesome) and have noticed of few little differences from original body shape.
The rear guards arent as big etc.
So who make a body which is the closest to the original SC 427 ??
Thanks

Now someone was going to take a heap of pics at the nationals and do car profile comparison like whats on the ERA web site for us and post in on the qld web site...what ever happened to that?

Whats the best (in someones opinion) and whats the closest are 2 different questions too. I do like Leeroys answer though

And Paul - you should post some bigger pics of your car on the site - $hit it looks good.

Totally agree, whats more is that those two ladies reflect the main differences between different cobra kits.

One has a droopy butt, the other a perky one.

Robnell looks like the winner - well here in Oz anyway.

Furthest away - G-Force followed closely by Jessica Alba (not quite as curvy )

Bind you the CR looks the part too.

Oh well who cares - they are all Replicas

I reckon Robnell too (on second look) (although I need a better side of the RMC) - The roll bar, wheels, ride height, side pipe position....etc etc I think have as much impact on the look of the car as the shape of the fibreglass.

Jessica on the other hand would look good dressed up in a hession sack (which would look even better crumpled at the foot of my bed)

Default My twin!!!

Slow 427, Thank christ for your team fender stripe otherwise I would probably hop in your car by accident and wonder why the keys don't fit in the ignition! Turned out great though. I'm impressed!

By the way, NICE choice!

Stef

I think your car has influenced a few Stef! For an authentic Cobra the bar is set high.

If I was not out to do something different I would love a silver Cobra.
