    I don't know how you feel about gambling, but there is money to be made if he wants to make it a bet! LOL

    I figured out eventually what he was talking about, he thought I owned a Cobra. Now I like the AC replica's, but they are not real Detroit metal, and I still don't get the connection between big cat and big snake

    Even Cobras weren't fiberglass though, they are aluminum (at least the originals were). The kits are fiberglass.

    Cougars are also foreign cars in the 50th state.

    One time I took my Cougar (and the shopmanual) in to my local Goodyear to see if they could find the answer to a powersteering issue. When I called them in the afternoon, to see if I could pick the car up, they said "Sorry Sir - we cannot work on your car - it is a foreign car - try the dealer".

    Martin, did you go to the Goodyear down by the Alehouse off of Hana Highway? We USED to go there..... 4 tries to align my front end and 3 torn tire beads was enough to seek other suppliers.....

    Back on the Cobra subject, were the original AC Cobras (pre-Shelby) aluminum too, or did they switch to that after Shelby started building them?

    Original AC Cobras are alunimum bodies, with some steel reinforcement...and steel frames, that were completly triangulated for stength...
    Most (people who own these cars hate the word "KIT") replicas are fibreglass over steel frames...
