I was just curious so I looked up the value, and going by what kelly blue book says, the car is worth $12,002 , thats a long way from $69,900


I'm not defending the price, but I saw this car in person and can tell you its a brand new '93 Cobra. Also, did you look up '93 Mustang Cobra, or the Cobra R model? With as little as 107 ever produced, I would be surprised if the blue book even considers values of such low prodruciton numbers. I had no idea that a '93 Cobra R even existed.

When I walked into the showroom, I thought "What the hell is this Fox-Body Mustand doing here with the Porsches, Lambos, and Bentleys!?" You can pick one of these up in decent shape for $2,500. Then I did a walk around and noticed the factory radio delete and other race prep options from Ford that I've never seen on a Fox-Body before. That's when I started asking questions.

MVL Leasing is a toy store for the rich. The owners are good guys. If they are asking $69,900 for the car, then it's because they have a market for someone to pay that much for it. With the amount of high priced vehicles that move throgh their doors, I don't doubt that the car will sell either.

Either way, it's some good clean reference pics of an all original Mustang. Take it or leave it.

Ive been really busy lately but i managed to cut out the doors and im experminting trying to make some lambo doors. Does anyone know how. Ill have pictures up later


Scratchbuilding Lambo doors would be a challenge! Perhaps you can canabalize one of the Revell kits that offer them. I think that they are in the "new" Charger, Magnum, or 300 kits. It may not be cheaper, but maybe easier.

(BTW: The trash talking started in the "Gumball" thread about 2 months ago when someone with a Hemi Dodge Daytona got it in his head that his car actually had a chance against my 400++ h.p., mid-engine Corvette ZR-1 powered '66 Corvair! THAT'S not gonna happen! :lol:)

Now what to build ..... :blink: and that Daytona will have an all aluminum destroked twin plug hemi . We are just having trouble getting dyno time for the engine .

Ok so i know its hard to see on camera but that is a guide coat of gray primer and im slowly getting the body of this car smoother. other than workining on the body ive also been working on the rollcage im scracth building and the interior was warped so i had to cut off the trunck section and had to reaatch in so that it was correctly alingened, i dont have enough progress on this part of the build to bother with pictures yet. in adition i am making the interior tub and chasis apear as one piece no ugly seams. also i have puttied and snded the engine block and seats to cover up those nasty seams.

Using a curbside kit with less than 50pcs helps for a quick build :D . Nothing crazy engine wise for this build as there is no engine in the kit! If I can find the time this weekend, I'll paint the trim and add the lights and call this puppy done.

Then on to the next build!

I like the body work on the Mustang so far, still waiting to see a pic of the engine. Did you ever solve the problem with the door hinges?

Not that it's my CBP, but if it were, I'd say it just gives you the pole at the start! Getting across the country is another thing entirely...
