So here's the Fire Fly, two summers ago i was sitting at home when i get a phone call from the Ford dealer in town and they had already sold me a 98 Cobra Convertible. The dealer asked if i wanted to buy a Cobra R. I asked how much, they said "i don't know" i asked when it was coming, they said "i don't know" then he asked me if i wanted it. I said "sure" and now i have #141 of the 2000 Cobra R's. This page is to show off my 2000 SVT Cobra R.
As you know SVT only Made 300 Although i heard rumors that there were 307 built Although i'm not positive whether that info is true or not. This car was bought in the spring of 2000. I have DRIVEN this car i don't believe that people should buy these cars just to put them away and wipe them with a diaper! These cars were built for one reason and that is to drive them! So for all of you fellow Mustang Lovers! here is my car and i'll add more pics when i take it out this coming spring. As of right now it only has 7,700 miles some people think that is high but these are pampered miles.I have just recently taken flying lessons and i have a new found thrill and i would love to buy a plane for myself. You know the sky is the limit! I'm considering selling it to buy a plane but there is still that part of me telling me that this is a rare car and the fastest production Mustang that will be available for a long time.
Front Side the only thing that is a pain about this car is fact that it has a really poor turning radius and if you're not used to the clutch you stall out really easily.
Side This is one of my favorite Pictures because it just show's of it's lines so well i took these right after i cleaned the inside and buffed and polished the outside. you can still see the Vacuum cleaner Cords.
Dirty 330CU or 5.4 Liter engine.
SVT Cerificate.. Yes this is the real one i put it back on my window (poorly) while it was sitting on my front lawn for possible buyers to see.
Isn't this the sadest thing you ever seen? i was going to sell it so i could get a single prop plane but no one gave me any good offers and i thought it over again and decided to keep it.
I have done a few things to this car nothing as far as performance wise because, lets face it it's a fast car already. I've added an Eclipse CD player with Pioneer speakers in the factory openings. If you didn't know like i didn't this car is already wired for a stereo it just didn't have one.
here's a little look at the interior you can see the MOMO racing pedals.
Cobra R Recaro Seats
My new Simpson 5 Point Racing Harnesses! these were $250 per Harness this is what they use in Nascars! oh yeah my ass is going to stay planted in those Recaro's!
Here's the Tremec 6-Speed! The only production mustang to EVER have one. (recently found out the 2003 Cobra is going to have 390HP and a 6 speed it still won't be as fast as mine because of it's weight but mine won't be the only 6 speed Mustang anymore) Anyone who's ever driven a Mustang knows that 2nd and 3rd gears in a Mustang are really wicked gears! This car is definetly not an exception.
i love the 180MPH Guages they put in here. notice the first notch on the speedo is 20!
Another thing even though this may seem stupid to some people i never wear shoes in the summer and when i drive this car i usually do it bare foot it's just something where i can feel the throttle better and feel what the car is doing i just get the most out of it that way i guess. If you haven't tried driving your Mustang barefoot try it and feel the difference, believe me there is one! GIVE ME SOME MORE IDEA'S !!!
