I think I made the salesman mad
I just stopped at a local dealership and looked at a used 97 cobra. I looked over the car and noticed that off the bat it needs new tires at all four corners cause the ones on it now are dry rotted so bad you can see the wires in the cracks. And it also needs new brakes all around. And for it to even look nice it needs a new paint job. Somebody tried to cover up the scrathes and paint chips with some cover up paint that doesn't even match the color of the car. As for mileage it has 130,283 miles on it. So I started it up and to no surprise it has a exhaust leak well now it's going to need a new exhaust and there is a tap coming from the motor when I reved it up alittle, could it possibly need the heads redone and while your doing that why not pull the motor and rebuild it. Back to the body the passanger side door doesn't match up to the fender and the emblem is missing off that side. I Looked at the front bumper and the fog light on the driver side is pointing to the inside of the bumper and the passanger side of the bumper is really loose with a nice chunck missing right underneath the fog light. Possible that it kissed a curb in it's life. So I asked the guy how much and he said 7,500. So I alittle and then he said if he gave it to me for 6,000 would I be interested. I told him it needs alot of work (I didn't mention everything I noticed above) And he started getting alittle attitude and said it is a perfect fixer upper. He then asked me how I would rate it from 1-10 1 being poor and 10 being excelent. I told him I would give it a 5 and that was being nice. He got rather angry with me and walked away. I don't think he liked that very much. I know the car is 8 years old but most cobras that age are right around 8,000 bucks in alot better shape than this one. I know this is kind of long but I thought I would share it with ya's.
