Nice! But do you know how hard it is to stand upside down on the keyboard to look at them. LOL...

I understand! When I downloaded them, the orientation was ok but when I attached them to the post, they flipped over. I went back and tried to edit the post but I couldn’t find a way to rotate the images. I’m not very adept at computers, after all I’m 64 and didn’t start using a computer until late in life at work and now I’m using an IPad, not sure if it’s an Apple thing. I know that I can’t drag and drop pictures that I previously had downloaded to my account from my DOS computer days when I was working. Hoping one of the younger guys on here can help educate me on proper computer (IPad) usage. I tried adding an image as my avatar and picture to my signature but also struggled/failed at that also.
Thanks,
Rick

Easy fix, just flip your camera over next time you take a picture to download. Anyway that's a good looking set of vehicles.

If I ever go 5 lug it's going to be with those mid 90's Cobra wheels. They look killer on these cars.

Back in 2002 when I was looking to convert a Turbo Coupe into a 5.0 powered car, there wasn’t a lot of info available for the swap and I wasn’t too sure about wiring it myself. I found a company called Windsor-Fox that specialized in making custom wiring harnesses to swap a 5.0 into just about any vehicle. I bought the main computer and a fuel injector harness from them. One of the first cars the company owner, Ed Marsh did was his wife’s Turbo Coupe on which he had done a 5 lug conversion and he had used 97 Cobra wheels, which when I saw them, I put them at the top of my list of desirable wheels for when i would get around to doing a 5 lug conversion. At that time, guys with Cobras we’re getting rid of the stock wheels for aftermarket styles, score for me! Chuck Warren has some early versions of these on his 83. Mine are off a 97 which have the 5 holes painted a dark gray while the early ones 94-95(?) the holes weren’t painted.
Back then, there were a few magazine articles about Ed, his company and his converted Turbo Coupe, different car than his wife’s. There used to be pictures of his T/C on the NATO website.
Ed has since passed away and I believe his company is now defunct.
Their harnesses were high quality and they came with very a detailed installation manual. My car started right up and ran great right after I completed all the swap work.

I think that someone made 4 lug versions of the 94-96 Cobra wheels in the late 90's. So there was a demand for them at some point. Before everyone went crazy for the Cobra R wheels.
