This is off topic but I really scratch my head about cars with so few miles. #1350 has 2,280 miles on the odometer... I have #1333, approaching 15k miles.

“Driven on the street to car shows and local tours” sums up the mileage but I’m left to wonder why anyone would buy a car like this and not drive it for the enjoyment of actually driving it. But then again, car shows are a mystery to me even though I did take my Porsche over to a PCA event this morning (putting the car in the ‘cars and coffee’ event was a good parking option while I went to the market... they were a little mystified when I came back 40 minutes later and left.)

Even better... finally found a car and closed the deal Friday. An early 2017 VMS build with 540 miles. Should have it next week!

Chris, pleased to hear you purchased a like-new Backdraft Cobra. And your purchase was from VMS, much closer to home. Enjoy your Cobra as I do mine. Phil

Phil, thanks so much for the good words and for the lead on this one. It was a great find and the seller is a pleasure to work with.

Thanks much and I definitely will! I like finding super low mileage cars cause I know I’ll drive them a bunch and then I don’t feel so bad. One of my other cars is an 02 Viper ACR from a collector that put 3k miles on it 14 years. I put 1500 in the first year and will add a bunch more this summer :-)
