The only rationale for buying a car like the Mustang Cobra has to do with how much and how often you like to have adrenaline pounding around inside your vascular system.
It's built on a platform that has to be near the end of its usefulness, it's a little pricey and it's the kind of car that makes insurance agents grab for their calculators.
On the other hand, it's surprisingly quick on its feet, it's long on charisma, and it's as American as fireworks on the 4th of July; when you tramp on the gas you can hear that wonderful engine growling its own version of "Stars and Stripes Forever" through the twin exhaust pipes.
