        Hard top lines clash with the body. If he wanted a Charger should have bought one.:D

          Nicely done, but I wouldn't get one. Spoils the character and lines IMO.

          I like the Shelby Cobra, but an update with _slightly_ more rake to the windshield would be nice if it can be done right. Dave Kindig could do it right I believe.

          How many fake Shelby Cobras are on the road now? Do they call them "tributes" or something else? They ain't "clones".

            A big block cobra has always been on my bucket list ,not digging the hard top on that car, soft top would probably be my first choice.
            I do like the hatchback/fastback styles compared to that one.

              The more I look at pictures #3, 4 and 5 with the hard top the more I like it. Might even prefer a coupe.

                Back in the 80's "Automobile" magazine had an article on a Cobra where someone had installed a 426 Hemi , I'm digging thru my stash of old magazines to find it

                The Daytona coupes look right or maybe that’s the only roofed cobra I’ve seen before

                    As far as I can tell, most had pics with the roofs off.... I prefer topless myself.

                      Remember seeing in NHOA issue in the 80's a guy named Kingman Hintz was doing a Cobra/426 Hemi build. Don't know if it was ever finished. Not sure I spelled his last name correctly ?

                      Yuck! I don't like cobras with the hardtop on. Looks funny to me.... I'd take a Daytona coupe in a heartbeat though!

                        Cobra is just one of those cars that should not have a top/roof...

                          i didn't mind the original Cobra Daytona which was in use before the GT40 was developed.
