Backdraft Racing BDR759
Monterey Blue/saddle upholstery

This Backdraft RT3 Roadster is an exhilarating drivin' machine easily capable of wheel-spinning acceleration in almost every gear. If you appreciate spirited driving, this blue beauty delivers.

At 2,400 lbs. [1,100 kg] its lightweight frame and body are catapulted to speed under the pull of the "big-block"-like power of this Roush-modified Ford small-block engine.
The menacing growl of the SS sidepipes and the rumble of its roller cams is a head-turner at every redlight. Every car nut owes it to him (or her) self to possess one of these snakes in their lifetime.

This serpent has logged only 10,500 miles [<17,000 km], meaning that it's now broken-in and sorted just in time for your summer driving thrills.

Stabled in Jacksonville, Florida U.S.A. 

15 March 2017: Just wanted to let you know that my Monterey Blue Backdraft Cobra (BDR759) has SOLD! It's on its way to a new stable in Cincinnati, Ohio. You'll be delighted to know that the lucky new owner didn't feel compelled to fly down to see this car in person... my photos were evidence enough of its beauty to close the sale from over 800 miles away! Thanks again, especially for your photography tips! Chris Hejmanowski

The spectacular serpentine photography you see on this page was brought to you by Chris himself, using his Fuji FinePix S8000 digicam; Chris scrupulously/conscientiously heeded this site's 'Cobra Photography Tips'... and his results speak for themselves!
