Hi everyone. This is Nick Wells. Some of you may remember me and my Cobra. Sadly, the Cobra is dead. Rust won out. The 289 will soon have a new home and it probably won't be in a II. However, the Ghia is still in decent shape and I have found a T-Top in EXCELLENT condition. Who knows what the future holds. Please go to the following adress to see the newest member of the WMSE family.

No kidding, Nick Wells.

We were talking about you just last weekend. Were wondering what happened to you.

So, how's it been?

Other than having to watch the Cobra dissentegrate, it's been good. I work for Auto Zone now so parts are easier to get at least. The Crown Vic and my son have been taking up most of my time. Now that we have a new PC matbe it will be easier to keep in touch.

Nick! No kidding? How are ya? Frank here...

Sorry to hear about the Cobra. Kinda going through a similar experience with the Ghia now. Suspension and frame components going away...shouldn't be too bad...but bad enough that I needed to get myself another car in the meantime. So I've got a red '99 now as well.

Don't be a stranger!

I have been there, I had to drive my giha through salty Canada winters and it broke my heart to watch her rust away. My new old II will never see rain, never mind snow [a Arizona car]. Your vic is kool. It needs tint and a supercharger! (A push bar would be a great addition!)

Hi Nick...definately long time, no hear...

nice to hear you still are around, and at least you have a bunch of Cobra II parts to put on a T-Top II.

It's nice to hear from everyone again. As to Cobra parts on a T-top, well that is the plan. My goal is to have somthing to bring to the 2004 Anniversary show. Either the Ghia or the T-Top will be there. Now if I can just get rid of the Targa band on the t-top.......

That piece of ginger-bread can be easly removed. It is held in place with plastic push fastners. Simply pry the ugly thing off. You will need regular hatchback quarter window trim. (chopped at the "T") You will also need inside quarter window trim. Presto-change-o. The holes left by the ugly offender must be filled and painted.
