Back in 2002, through my adventures at EA on Need For Speed, I was doing a photoshoot with a continuation Cobra 427, of which I also got a proper ride in. Needless to say, the 535hp all-aluminum 427 combined with those gorgeous curves had me hooked from the second the engine turned over.
I couldn’t stop thinking about that car, and with my passion for working with my hands and building things, I decided I had to have a Cobra, even if I had to build my own. I learned about Factory Five Racing and their component cars, both the Cobra and Daytona Coupe. By October of 2003, I had specc’d my Cobra component car, and placed my order!
