BaB - Bring a Buffer

I had difficulty enjoying the video in the sun showing off all the swirls in the paint  Wink  At least this Cobra has been driven/enjoyed a bit.  I like the color and overall attitude.

I always thought that I would like a very dark blue Cobra...until I saw this one. Nope. Doesn't do it for me.

I like the thought of the aluminum engine but can someone explain why a Cobra needs more cubes? A stock 427 can go sideways off of idle.

I like the wheels. They look like Bruce Canapa "epoxy" specials....... It sounds good too-

   I'm wondering if Jim Farley of Ford motor Company was the first owner. The dark blue and black wheels make sense . BTW wheels are TRIGO  aluminum wheels.

    Similar paint and wheel color had me thinking. Thanks for the heads up to all.
