    You're selling your baby

    Tempting though
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Yes............... As you can see from the mileage, I have hardly used it. The problem is that when I moved my factory to the new one, I lost the area where I used to store the car and at the new premises, I do not have decent storage without putting the car in danger of dings and scratches. My neighbor at home very kindly offered that I can keep the car under roof by him, but I cannot indefinitely keep it there. So I have to look at this. My home has a double garage, full stop.

    I checked with TRTec who manufactures these cars and they indicated that a new turnkey car with similar specs would set you back +- R 405000.00. So a good deal for somebody wanting one.

    Nice build, But for some reason Dave I can see you enjoying a toy like this.

    It would be lovely for a Sunday drive and in your aria there is far less potholes. Here by us you can see the potholes on Google earth...

    There are quite a few of these cars running in Durban and I might add some as potent as a Cobra itself.
    I specifically had this one built as a docile "old mans" car. But not VERY old as it can still bite !

    Yep. I saw a great one on a showroom floor in Pinetown not too long ago. It had a Merc V8 compressor motor in it churning out about 500bhp as I recall. A truly spectacular widow maker if ever I saw one - and at a great price too.

    Unfortunately I have a personal goal to achieve before I'll allow myself to indulge in toys such as these.
    But there's no harm in looking and drooling a little - it helps the motivation.

    In an effort to make up for your disappointment...

    I was going to suggest advertsing the car on cars.co.za - it certainly gets enough traffic and the cost to list is small change.

    But scratching around there I see a possible classification problem.

    This thread is up to postion 6 on Google.co.za for the search term cobra roadster though.
