WCOC Match 9

GTV v Cobra

Much as I like the GTV, I fear it has met its match here.

There are, and it is a very good looking and distinctive car. If I had one, I'd probably choose it here too.

In regard to the GTV:

Anyone know why the side crease/line changes angle once it gets past the front wheel?
Couldn't they have molded the bumper and bonnet to have the line continue at the same angle?

That always jars in what is otherwise a great design.

Based on my experience the GTV (OK in Spider form for me) is one of the best bang for buck cars in the world. That made it tough, however I do like and always have, a Cobra.

In all honesty (and I am a multi-faceted person) I have always admired Cobras even (here it comes) the replicas. I would have a Rover Vee..ated Cobra rep over a Busso GTV. Said it now but that is how it is.

If I could have only one car then I would struggle between a GTV Busso and a 911. Great car but since I am not [yet] forced to have only one car the Cobra takes this quite easily.

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
