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, and it has been very easy to maintain. I want this fine drivin’ machine to go to someone who will appreciate its eye-catching style as well as enjoy the ride.
