The story of the Car.

Robert Millers 2004 Mystichrome Cobra "Terminator" 601hp/574tq

I remember the day like it was yesterday, Walking in to NC oldest Ford Dealership "Yadkin Valley Motors Inc." in my hometown on Wilkes Co NC. There it was, a 2004 Mystichrome Cobra, not just any Cobra but a 390hp car nicknamed the "Terminator". At the time I was a newlywed and I knew that the sticker price of $38550.00 was way out of my range not mention that my wife and I was about to build a new house. So instead of driving away in what I thought was the jaw dropping Mustangs of Mustangs I drove away in my little Daily Driver and when I got home I went to work on my 87 Fox GT at the time. In my mind I kept seeing the Topez Green to Cobalt Blue to Royal Purple and Finally Onyx Black mystichrome paint, not only that but the interior of the car was something I had never seen either. While the paint on the outside was without a doubt something truly amazing the intrior followed suite with the Leather inserts also changing color. After awhile I finally started sleeping through the night and continued on with my Mustang life mostly trading and working on Foxbodies. But each time I picked up a Great Magazine (5.0 Mustang & Super Fords) or attended a Car show, if there was a Mystichrome Car........I was like a kid in a candy store. Well recently some of us Cobra lovers in NC got together to do a photoshoot and just hang out. We ended up with "34" 03-04 Cobras and about 10 other stangs. While there I was driving my new pride and joy a 2003 Sonic Blue Cobra Coupe. The Car was nice and with recent addtions by Donnie Salem of Boosted Performance it was making tons of street power also(605/594). However one of the fellow SVT guys was driving my dream car yet again. It was Zeekman, he was in a 2004 15k mile Mystichrome Cobra and I was in love yet again. A few  weeks had gone by and I was looking real hard hoping to find  the car I remember seeing 7 years early. It was Friday Feb 12th and it was closing time at work. I did one more quick search on Svtperformance.net and there it was. A 2004 Mystichrome Cobra For Sale! Not only was it for sale but it was reasonable, with a whole list of mods. I quickly sent the Seller a PM and he responded with the VIN. I quickly did some research and it was like my dream was becoming a reality. Not only was he the orginal owner of the car but he had kept the Car pretty much as a garage queen all its life. But as "Eric" put it, the car wasn't always babied, "I did occassionaly feel her up a bit" he said and who wouldn't? The car was sporting 601hp at the tires and 574tq. How you might ask? Well he had added a 2.6 Kenne Bell blowzilla @ 19lbs of boost sucking air through a Accufab/Kenne Bell Throttle body and Steeda cold air intake. To keep the belts rolling smoothy he added Metco Idler Pullies and to make sure it stayed cooled he put in the Head Cooling mod and a LFP Heat Exchanger. A set of 60lb injectors and a Kenne Bell Boost-a-pump kept up with the fuel suppy (I knew that if all went well I would have a Fore Precision Fuel hate awaiting two Twin GT pumps that could be installed in the coming months). Modular Powerhouse had worked there magic with the 93 octane tune. Suspension and Drivetrain also had improvements with Maximum Motorsports Full length SF connectors, Lowered Stock springs, Billet Flow Diff Brace and MGW shifter that helped the Mac Prochamber midpipe and Polished Flowmaster catback sing outloud. A Week later I was in the drivers seat and pinching my self to see if it was real. Snice I have had the car its been nothing but amazing for sure. So many people are just overwhelmed by the Ford applied Mystichrome paint. I also added  a few touches my self including: Speedhut Fuel Pressure and Volt Gauges with the help of an SOS pillar pod. An Aeroforce inerceptor Gauge that helps keep track of important things also like Water temp, Intake Temps, and accuriate Boost numbers. Not knowing what could compliment such a fine piece of art and American Muscle I decided to add True Forged Mach 5 18" wheels wrapped in BFG's tires. The result ....well it speaks for its self and me........well I havn't stop grinning snice I first saw the car back in the service center of Yadkin Valley Motors.

I believe Steve will be at Mustang Week, but his Shelby makes 700hp at the wheels so he may be bored with your Cobra. LOL Just kidding, Donnie is good people, and he should be able to make those numbers happen. When I come to the ZMAX race, I will be happy to use it as my weekend rental. Hahaha

Okay....Maybe you can use it in Real Street, maybe by then I can have a 100 shot thrown on it.....Ha.....Who would have every thought that 650rwhp wouldn't be much.....L, However I think I would put it up against the 700hp Heavier GT500....maybe I can get him to spot me......Might need to line them up at Darlington..... Laugh

See ya
