1966 AC Cobra 427 S/C 427 ci V8
Brutal, fast, uncompromising. Awesome
The wheels are getting slightly pitted, but that's to be expected on a nearly 40 year old car.
Some minor overheating (since remedied).
It's very, very, very loud! Your head freezes and your toes burn. The driving position is uncomfortable and the wind nearly rips my head off.
People stare all the time and everyone thinks it's a replica. Apparently it's capable of 0-60mph in about 4 seconds. Never tried it, but it certainly feels that fast.
I would sooner sell my kidneys than this car. My wife hates it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Unload your wife before the car, a car like that the women must be lining up to meet you.

A few hundred true A/C Cobras left, millions of women. Sell the wife.

Keep the car and the wife - she'll keep the centre of gravity nearer to the centre line and with that amount of torque you'll never know she's there.
Tell the admiring women she's your secretary / housekeeper / minder, whatever. Anyway, with a car like that, what good are women (other than for ballast - see above)?
If I could have writen this in green ink it would have matched my complexion - with envy!
