    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Yeah, they made a heck of an impression is some of the SS and mod classes last year, and this year looks like performance will be up a bit! Notice some changes in the cage and bracing, I would imagine to stiffen up the car and help with torque transfer????

    These'll be the final 50! More of a shift than I like to see sadly!

    It says;

    "If you remember, last year during the 2013 season, the Cobra Jet snagged 9 wins in NHRA Stock and Super Stock while competing at the NHRA US Nationals in Indianapolis. Classes dominated include the SSS/AA, SS/DA and Factory Showdown. A nail biting ending ensued in the final round when Dave Connolly’s COPO Camaro was crushed by Chris Holbrook’s CJ Mustang.

    With this being the last year of Cobra Jet production, we can’t wait to see what this season brings for our Cobra Jet racers."

    I got info from another source saying all the parts will be available in different packages and Ford SVT will again be selling the "body in white". Possibly why the whole build operation was moved from Ford to a private contractor???? Just a thought, but maybe we're going back to the days of "out the back door" Super Stock and Stock racing, heck, Chebbie has a COPO again, why not back door stuff from Ford and Dodge?????

    You're probably right on there! I was actually surprised when I first heard that FMC was doing the roll cages! I figured the lawyers and liability word would've held them back. Who knew?!?!

    Another good indicator will be when NHRA posts the contingency money up for grabs for next season. Anxious to see what Ford has posted on there!!!!!
