Serious inquiries only, please!

29 January 2020: Good news!! I sold my Rossa Red Backdraft Cobra this weekend, so please mark it “SOLD!’! It went to a lucky new owner in Michigan. Thank you again for all of your help and advice in taking photos and creating my ad. Cobra Country did a great job connecting me with nearly a dozen potential buyers in under a month (and in the Winter season!). Keep up the good work! Best, Mike Winters
