    I love the 550/575's, but if I'm going to have one fun car, it's not going to have a solid roof.

    So, my buddy down in Naples texted me last week and asked if I was still interested in a Cobra. Turns out, after we spoke several months ago, he placed an order for one in the colors I liked, and that car is in. Porsche Dark Blue with silver stripes.

    Exactly! So when does it arrive?

    "Turns out" that Naples is just down the road for me. Hmm, is a test drive in order?

    I stand by my use of the phrase "turns out". He knew I liked these colors/options and placed the order without telling me or me asking for it. (Scouts honor!) He did tell me to let him know a couple colors I liked, and he would order them for inventory, with no obligation. But, I never did. Anyway, I do like it and will talk to him this coming week. There is a pretty good chance this will be on a truck to MA in the next couple weeks.

    David, you really should check out the dealership at some point. Todd (the owner) is a great guy and would be happy to show you around. They have a great service department/shop that you would appreciate. Plus, it could be a mutually beneficial relationship, if the two of you got to know each other.

    I may try to fly down for a day, to take the Cobra for a ride before buying, since I've never driven one before. I'll let you know if that happens, and maybe we could meet up in Naples.

    Fantastic ! Beautiful ! Need to be careful? entering and exiting. If I were going for a ride I would step onto the floor of the car and then sit - reverse for getting out - those look like flesh eating exhausts - there's got to be a trick to getting in and out without a burn.

    Holy shit man, that's a badass car! You gotta go down and drive it.

    What do you mean he ordered it? From whom? How much is it?

    He’s a Backdraft dealer, so he ordered this car from Backdraft Racing as one of his stock.
    I didn’t get the exact price yet, but the ones he ordered are usually mid to upper $60k’s.
