I have wanted a Cobra since I first saw one at the age of thirteen.  It took me a few years but I finally got one, at the age of fifty-five.  My favorite thing about my Superformance is that I can work on it myself.  It has super car performance with '60s simplicity. We have taken trips the past two summers in the Cobra.  Last year from Mexico to Texas...up the Natches Trace... through the Mid-west to the Blueridge Parkway and back to Mexico.  This past summer we drove from Mexico all the way to the Canadian border.  The entire trip was through the Rockies.  We like to stay off the freeways and stay on the backroads.  That's where this car is really fun.  You will probably never see my car on a trailer.  It's too much fun to drive!
