I was wondering why is it that when a Cobra kit pulls up at a car show/cruise that people go nuts over it regardless of how "authentic" it looks? It can have a 302 or a 454 Chevy in it and people seem to accept it, but if someone pulls up in a Mustang that has been "Shebyized" in one form or another the response usually is "That's a fake", or "It's not real." Neither is the Cobra! I love the Cobra but the prices of real ones are out of most peoples reach so the kits are a nice way to go. Same for Shelby prices, most people can't afford them, so they do the next best thing. I don't mind the Shelby mods, I think they can really dress up a Mustang. As long as they don't try and pass it off as real I see no harm in it. I was just wanting to know what kind of responses clone owners(Shelby,Boss,Bullitt,Eleanor)hear at different events. I used to think it was the rarity of Cobra kits that drew people but you see quite a few on the road anymore.
