In my yard, the Cobra waits to strike,

ready to terrorize Vipers, 'vettes, or  Dr. Ferdinand's 930's

that stray into her territory .....

 

Yes, driving one is hot, LOUD, bumpy, and smells of exhaust fumes - oh,
and absolutely the most fun that can be had with your clothes still on !!!

 

...No, I haven't tried driving around nekkid ..... (yet)  -  but if I ever do get bored driving her, all bets are off !
