You could tell if it was fake by looking in the cockpit at the dash.

Usualy if you see a Cobra it most likely not a real one. The sound of the original ones help me differentiate the 2.

Wow, you are very lucky. You saw a very rare and beautiful car. I wish I saw stuff like that where I live.

if you're ballsy... the original bodies are aluminum... so you could stick a magnet on it...

you'd know if it was alum/f-glass/steel pretty quick...

there's quite a few kit versions that are actually better cars though, b/c they're designed on computer designed frames, whereas the old ones were not straight and all sorts of interesting stuff...

i saw some nice ones at the car show this year with s/c'd 5.0 motors and 17in. halibrand rims... mmm...

i'd die for a 289 with the huge flares and tires though... 427 kinda scares me b/c it's got no limit... i'd kill myself

Why did noone see a real Cobra??? I see one every day over here. I'm sure it's a real one! An onkel of a friend of mine has it :-D. Can't wait till it's summer again. Then it will pass every day!
