One of our newest members Sharon Manduley, is one very lucky lady. Not only is she the new mother of a healthy baby boy but she is also the enthusiastic owner of a beautiful Cobra. As if that wasn't enough, she is married to a man so wonderful he is the barer of both gifts! Yah, makes me sick too. haha!

Brian Manduley brought Sharon to my attention, telling me of the graduation gift he built and gave to his adored wife, a 1997 Mustang Cobra. As her cool vanity license plates tell, Sharon is now a Registered Nurse in Virginia. The couple has more memories in the 'stang then mere oil spills and burned tread, they brought home their first child, a baby boy who was lovingly nicknamed "Mr. Wiggles", in the Cobra.

As if a SVT in its factory form isn't amazing enough, this powerhouse has received the works, from chrome Cobra R's to gears, gauges, full exhaust and of course the reconstructed and improved beating heart underneath the hood. (The addition of a Vortech is just what the doctor ordered!) It's not hard to believe that nothing was left untouched and no corners were cut View larger since Bryan is a long time master at building strong 'stangs. That's even more apparent after checking out this 340 turbocharged engine that will soon be transplanted into his own 1987 Mustang.

Only the strongest in the hobby should challenge this lady. But don't worry, if your one of those who have a weak heart, this RN might be able to save you after you lose. Good luck...boy are you ganna need it! MW
