My wife much preferred riding in the Superformance Cobra replica I had. When I was getting ready to retire I was looking at another Cobra but she wanted something that had a top and AC. The Viper was the closest thing I could find to the Cobra. Fair power and the only nanny feature was the ABS brakes.

She does not enjoy it as much as the Cobra and to be truthful, neither do I. So as a result of that it just does not get driven that much.

Probably going to be buying one of these in the near future and the Viper will be gone.

Nice. I would never choose that over the Viper but I've always wanted one.

Are those Rubicons any good in the snow?

Better than the Viper. If the Viper sees three snowflakes it starts to spin the tires.

Got up the next morning and I-17 was still closed from a snow storm, so I took state road 87 south through Payson. Beautiful ride and that area only got about 3-4". The snow forecast for Payson this year would have prevented me from getting to Scottsdale in 2018.

A neighbor asked if she should get a Rubicon to be safer in the winter. I didn't know about the Rubicons, but thought the CJ5 Jeeps weren't so good in the snow. Never owned one, though.

A lot of it depends on the tires.

If you have large big lug tires that are good in mud and rocks, then chances are they will not be good in ice or plowed snow. However they would work fine in deep fresh snow.

The Rubicon has the ability to electronically lock both the front and rear differentials so you have true 4 wheel drive as all four are powered.

Slick!

I hear you. I think the 68-69 is a bit sleeker but I really like the later dash.

The Vette is a '72, real LT-1.

It's tough when you've got one with colors that just don't do it for you. I had a T/A with a blue interior. When I bought it I told myself that I'd get use to it. It went the other way. I ended up hating it. Have had a lot of white cars. Not a favorite but "OK" with it. Here's hers:

70 has the good hood, 4 headlights, and the good dash,
This one was shadow grey with black stripes and black vinyl top
perfect beautiful rust free floors, and never wrecked,
numbers matching down to the carb.



Found this under the dash pad,
It even has all 5 original SS wheels

Dang nice but you need a wiper door (and my wife's car needs a hood like yours)
