    I will sum it up. You want a 10sec car with DD manners like a Corolla? KB Cobra.

    You want a big rawdy cammed 10 sec car? F-body.

    They are both fast and you will enjoy both but if you want a more refined car, Cobra.

    Cobra cost a LITTLE more because they are worth more. Simple. You can also finance it and sell it for the same money years later. You wont loose a dime. The word F-body and resale value do NOT mix. You can find LS1's for 5-10K but I wouldnt be caught dead in it.

    If you wanna talk about a good DD, i ran into a guy with a Twin screw S/C c5 z06, took me for a ride its a 9second car and drove like a dream.

    Cobras dont compare to T/A's. T/A's really look like they are trying too hard. Cobras just look badazz. Simple.

    Cobras dont look that special, they look almost just the same as their GTs, just a slighty different hood and front clip and some other minor stuff, oh wow yea it does have a much stronger and better motor but they are always going to be high in price, yes its better to get a sexier F-body drop a few mods still make it street able and take out a supercharged stang.

    You don't seem to be paying much attention? F Bodies are already starting to appreciate in value rapidly. 99' Anniversary TAs are selling for more than the original cost, low mileage WS6's sell for $25k everyday, and the rest will soon follow. The WS6 is the Hemi Cuda investment of modern American performance cars....Period!

    So you dont buy a $500K home since you can fit the same plasma TV in your condo? The car does and WILL cost more because it is more car.

    Yes, the Cobra does have a more simple look. The interior reminds me of a Volvo, and the body styling is more like a Dove bar...

    You go buy an F-body for 25K that they STOPPED making due to lack of sales! Yea, jump right on that. I can sell you some prime property in the everglades too if ya like. This is the WORST point ever. This means Cobras AND F's are the SAME price. Classic.

    Guess you haven't come across any supercharged LS1s lately? The Cobra is overpriced for what it is....

    I drove my SS everywhere and everyone called it a Trans Am! I go the Video store and find guys looking at the Cobra when I come out. Yea, I know which car gets the looks.

    Yes, you dont know me on SVT or LS1tech. My buddy has an STS Z28 and I walked it HARD. My buddy right now is about to have a Procharger set up installed ($7900 BTW) on his 2000 Z28 from Dagostino racing and then we are installing a 100 shot and I will walk his LS1 W/ 2 power adders! I will show you the vid when he is ready. I may turn my boost up a hair and heat the tires though.

    Are you serious, girls always love the T/A more, i have soo many friends with stang, when are cars are side by side guess who they talk to, it wouldnt be you sir, now it might be the car or it might jsut be cause im one sexy motherfucker, what kinda of boost are they running and a STS kit is horrible on stop compression, Come race a guy around her has a 99 SS with stock comp ratio, cammed with heads, a 76trim turbo with meth pushing 20psi making over 800rwhp. Have fun with that, turn the boost down and the car is a great DD he drives it an hour to hwy where everyone races almost every weekend with no problems.

    nice ambiguous and cookie cutter statement....not to mention purely opinionated. and tell me, how much do you really know about an ls1 powered car if you dont or havent owned one? youre 17 bro, wake up.

    wasnt it you who made case for the f bodies being a bargain and the cobra not? so i suppose cars that are older and cost more than new is a bargain now? that may be true if you owned it and are collecting it, but to the normal person that is ludicrous.

    wow. another vague opinion. its like seeing whos dad can beat up who else's dad. the bullshit just wont stop.

    you all can keep making yourselves out to be the gm loyal who defend the general to the death but in actuality its becoming increasingly close minded and funny.

    as i said, i LOVE GM and i LOVE MY F BODY! case closed.
