Hi everyone. Just joined the forum. My best friend and I are looking to build a FFR Cobra. We wanted to know if there are any San Diegan's here that have recently built one that we could maybe buy a beer and pick your brain about what's involved. Also, anyone prepared, either before or after, a budget of what it really costs to build one of these cars (I know it varies based on options/engines/paintjob). Thanks for any help you can provide!

Welcome to the Forum

There's a large group here in San Diego, some are building still, some are in the planning stages and some have built one, or 2 or 3....

I have built 2 and was ready to build a third one.

The outcome Depends on how much money you have to throw at this project.

100K ? Buy all New with the best of everything.
50K? you can build a nice machine for that money
30K? - what most people invest on these beauties
20K? - It is possible

Where in San Diego are you?

I live in Bay Park. Does the group here ever meet? Would be interesting to go to a group...

Right now our plan is to build a MKIII with a carbed small block (on the order of 400hp so nothing too insane), and definately IRS. Wouldn't be looking to buy everything new and would use the local junkyards to find the parts we need (and then restore to good condition obviously).
