But that's just me
For the most part, you are correct. In the case of the Cobra R, well, it ain't got no damn radio! (Or AC, or back seat, etc )Alberta-SRT said:Hamrhead
No offense was taken at all, this forum is a great source of info and debate.
If your R still has the original battery after all this time you must be doing something right or the thing just has a great battery in it. I just thought that if you pulled the power you would lose the radio's memory??
Actually, restraint is only a part of it. Two jobs helps to soak up alot of my time. While other times I simply CAN'T get it out of the shed(In the backyard, where I park it). You see, rain water tends to 'puddle' in front of the shed, so much of the time the ground is too soft to pull the car out into the backyard. Though when I do get it out, it is flat-azz FUN to run!BTW---- how can you stand owning such an awesome car and not drive it, I would go crazy having it just sit there. You my friend have incredible restraint, hang on to that car, in about 20 yrs it'll be worth a small fortune.
Yup! It's only got a low-compression 5.8liter V8(351 Windsor), factory rated at 300hp, but it does have a real nice Torque curve! With the addition of a free-flowing exhaust, I definitely opened up some more HP (Major bottleneck on '95 R's), so it runs in about the same neighborhood as a stock SRT Ram ---> 106mph+/- through the 1/4. The fact that the handling and braking are INSANE, plus it's like driving in an empty beer can (NO sound deadening insulation either -- remember, 'R' stands for Race car ), only adds to the experience.Oh and if I ever get up in your neighborhood..do you think maybe we could put another few miles on it....hint hint
Try this site - Battery Tender Jr. at $19.95...stinker said:Guys check out this site www.motorcyclebatteriesusa.com I know its a bike site but they've been the cheapest I've found. They have the battery tender JR. for $27 and for the guys that store more than one , or for those of us that store cars bike and the stylish but slow John Deere, they have a 4 point charging station, they have all the info on these . I'v used these on my Vette, mower, and bikes for years now and have only had one failure, but I still think it was my fault, but they replace it anyway. And I bet if you can get a couple of guys together they will probably give a group discount.
