The photographs you see on this page as accurately as possible reflect the way you’d see this car in person. You see, the owner took the time to carefully follow this site’s Expert Tips for photographing his Cobra with his (borrowed) digital camera. Curt Scott

This Backdraft Cobra has been my life-long dream (bucket list) car. It drives and handles like a new car, but with all the aggressive style of the original.

No expense spared in its build. I want this fine drivin’ machine to go to someone who will appreciate its eye-catching style as well as enjoy the ride.
