2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra ROUSH Sport (Sydney)
Last updated Mar 26, 2007
As ROUSH fan from the beginning I've always viewed the fusion of SVT and ROUSH the class of the generation.
One of my all time favorites were the few 96-98 ROUSH Cobras, so when the 2003 SVT Cobra debuted I quickly envisioned a blend of SVT power and handling with ROUSH looks and pedigree.
A fellow car tribe member ordered the first and consequently started a car search frenzy to claim one for myself. Unable at the time (thanks Uncle Sam) to purchase one new - I had to wait to see if one of these rare vehicles surfaced after someone had their fill of owning a piece of history and driving a car with rock star looks and prize fighter power. As luck would have it I was able to find one .... LUCK/BLESSING whatever the condition I became the proud owner of #03-8887 the 10th Anvi ROUSH Cobra.
Unfortunately, serving Uncle Sam, I lost this fine vehicle in accident in South Carolina.
Disheartened, but embolden by my fellow car tribe members (FNSWEET) I searched for a suitable replacement.
