Twin turbo vette wasn't brought because the lift in the transporter rig was broken which sucked because it was the air conditioned lounge.

We were baking our asses off on the midfield park site.

Met some of the bigwigs there and they are true fans of performance vehicles regardless of type as well as experts in many different areas.

Government is making a big mistake taking away thier reason for existence and not allowing them to pursue commercial interests because the facility has many unique capabilities coupled with a concentration of genius level engineers and fabricators.

 138 mph in my '00 Dodge Dakota R/T, was bouncing the rev limiter cause of the 3.91 gears they come with. It was awesome. Drove straight as an arrow, easily the most fun vehicle ive owned. Gotta '77 chevy step side truck with a 383 took it to 100 so far.

J Macc 01 - I hit 160 in my buddies '05 GTO with a mini cam, no cats, and a tune. I've been in it when he hit 172 though.

I've taken my Cobra 'vert 145.

 What year Cobra? I got 04

Sweet Cobra.

Mine is a '99. N/A. It has full bolt-ons and a full Griggs Racing suspension.

Not the power of a terminator, but it corners like no other w/the tubular K-Member and coil-overs all around, bump-steer kit and huge camber plates.

You can see a pic of it in my profile.

 as og November 2011, my Cobra no longer exists.

I was going thru an intersection and a old guy ran the red light, I broadsided him, ricocheted off, slammed noto a Prius and headed straight for a 8ft circumference utility pole head on. gthe Cobra has a 5 star front end crash test rating and I'm convinced it saved my life. I went to the e.r on a stretcher but other than a broken left hand, I was fine. The hand is healed now, but my Cobra was totaled.

I bought a 2000 Lexus LS tpo replace it with and wish I had my C obra back every day but I had it for 7 years and i'ts time to move on.

RIP Terminator. It's a sad day whenever one of those bites the dust.

However, the most important thing is that it did its job and saved your life. I'm glad you got of it in good shape for the most part.

God damn, that's a sad sight. I love Cobras.

What are you waiting for?? Stand on that gas pedal!

"Breaking in" is a thing of the past, with the tolerances of modern machining and mass production. But even if it wasn't, you want to beat on it immediately to seat the rings and lock in your compression.
