    po-po 5.0, February '09 Feature Car




    Member Name: po-po 5.0

    Real Name (first name only is fine): Blake Felice

    Description of your car: '99 Cobra

    Location: Houston, TX

    Occupation/School: Engineering Technologist

    What is your main use for the car now: daily driver

    What would you LIKE to use the car for in the future: daily driver
    with the occasional road course visit

    How did you get into cars: When it was time to do my very first oil
    change on my very first car, my dad handed me an oil filter wrench and
    said "figure it out." I've been wrenching every since.

    Who or What motivates you to keep improving your car: Mostly knowledge
    motivates me. I want to learn about different engine configurations
    (diesel vs gasoline, roots blower vs centri). Also, I like to look at
    cars so I like to throw parts at it that make it stand out from all the
    others just like it, but without beating you over the head with its
    individuality.

    Add a short story about anything to do with your participation in the
    hobby or your car here
    : I got kinda lucky finding this car. I took a job
    in Houston in a downtownish office that has zero surface parking. My new
    truck wasn't going to be able to fit in the parking garage so I needed
    something as a DD. I called up the dealer where I bought my truck asking
    if they had a v8 mustang with a stick at a particular price point. Turns
    out they didn't, but the sales manager knew someone looking to sell
    something I might be interested in. I bought this car, and the previous
    owner scored a killer deal on a new stang. Win-win.

    Mods: i.e. a list of aftermarket engine / suspension / interior /
    exterior / wheels / tires parts that you or the previous owner added:


    '03 cobra IRS with urethane bushings and diff brace
    Magnaflow catback
    maximum motorsports front coilovers with 250lb springs
    maximum motorsports caster camber plates
    steeda bumpsteer kit
    '03 cobra rear bumper
    '03 cobra rear springs and bilstein shocks
    subframes
    mgw shifter
    bbk CAI

    ET times, Dyno Numbers, Awards, Recognition, Race class: NA

    Purchase: Approximate date. Is there a story behind the purchase? Was
    it your "dream car"?:

    Purchased at the end of September '08. In addition to the circumstances
    surrounding the sale there is another story. I bought this car less than
    24 hours before moving from OKC to Texas. My trailer was already loaded
    when I went to pick up this car. I literally paid for the car, drove it
    to stangfather's house, left town, and didn't even see the car again for
    2 weeks. Talk about the suck! I had a new car that wasn't even in the
    same state as me! This is definitely one of my dream cars. I LOVE white
    SVTs. Whether its lightnings or cobras....the best color is white. I
    also love the sound of a high compression 4 valve modular with an h-pipe
    and chambered mufflers. Also, black interior is my favorite color on
    mustangs, and in the "new edge" body style was only available in '99 and
    '00. In '01 Ford went to a charcoal color thats fairly dark, but not
    actually black. So in reality a '99 white cobra is essentially my ideal
    new edge car. The only thing I lack to make it perfect is some chambered
    mufflers. Well....that and about 300hp. Both will come eventually

    Future plans with this car or with another one: Future plans include a
    viper spec T56 with GM overdrives, a built 9:1 compression shortblock
    and twin turbos. For looks I'm going to go with some terminator side
    skirts, bullit scoop deletes, and a terminator chin spoiler as well as
    10th Anniversary cobra wheels.

    Your thanks: Thanks to Josh for selling me the car. Thanks to my
    parents for putting up with me being a greaseball all these years, as
    well as for leaving my vehicles turn to pieces in their driveway. Thanks
    to DH in general for putting up with my ass all these years, and thanks
    to Ford for creating SVT to build fun cars that are still inexpensive.

    Some people are like slinkies, they don't really have a purpose but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    I was looking for a location with some graffiti or something, but it was all painted over everywhere I looked. I settled on that cuz it kinda looks "urban" and because it was abandoned so no one was going to harass me taking pics.
