Congratulations to August Ride of the Month winner, Lefty, with his gorgeous triple black 2001 Cobra convertible. Lefty, or Troy, said that he was very surprised to win this month’s ROTM because he was in the running a few times before and didn’t even come close to winning one!
The 2001 Cobra is not his first mustang, he has actually owned a 1996 GT and decided to upgrade to a 4-valve 4.6L naturally-aspired SVT engine, a nice upgrade I would say! The Cobra has been under Troy’s possession for almost three years and as far as I can see, it’s been a great three years for Troy.
Sitting on H&R race springs and Bilstein HD Shocks/Struts with the independent rear suspension, unique to Cobras that year, the Cobra have an aggressive stance, perfect to spread fear on the roads along with the deep growl of his full exhaust. To hold all the power to the roads, the Cobra is fitted with 03-04 18″ Cobra Replica’s wrapped with Falken RT-615′s. In the addition to the race springs, it is fitted with full-length sub-frame connectors, perfect for taking to the track! He also fitted in a Pioneer Double Din DVD/Nav unit. I’ve asked him if he had ever taken to a dyno, he simply replied, “Wait til’ the Eaton swap and then I’ll get back to you .” Can’t wait for that!
His final words to all of the supporters on MM: “TOB is throw out bearing ”
Congrats to Troy and his beautiful Cobra, I sure hope you will take care of it for many years to come!
