In serious need of work (original paint) and hardly a classic, but it still has some get up and go (302 cubic inch V8 in it). :)




And yeah, the color's a bit weird, but it's better IMO than this combo:

Hmm, that's old school. But 302cc engine?!?

I like how your parents have such cool/interesting cars.

Is 302 too small or too big? It's just a standard 5L V8.

She drove it up until a couple years ago when she got her new Civic. The Cobra was just too old (lack of decent heat, a little leaky, etc.). The Cobra's in the garage now. ;)

Isn't 302cc equal to 0.32 litres?

Er, haha, sorry, I meant cubic inches. What's the common abbreviation for that? Hmm...

Man, and I thought my mom's arrest-me-red Jetta with 17" alloys and and a growly aftermarket exhaust was a "bad" mom car!

302 cubic inches...very different from cubic centimeters (AKA milliliters)

The green Cobra stripes are totally groovy! I have a feeling these cars are going to start getting popular soon. It might be worth hanging onto that one.

This body style of Mustang is considered the most undesirable and that is really due to the fact that it was designed during the height of the gas shortages, increased insurance rates, and new pollution regulations. It can be made to look good though.
Yeah.

I had originally written "cc". ;)

Nope, one cubic centimeter = one milliliter. Remember that you're going from one dimension (centimeter) to three dimensions (cubic centimeter)

What's the point in using cubic inches anyway? It's so much more confusing than just saying litres.
