Not all projects are going to be successful. Not everyone has the knowledge and skills to tackle the scope of what most project cars actually entail. For many, it’s the small victories and significant steps along the way that make working on a project worthwhile. There are infinite levels of success, as not every project is the same, but taking on an all-encompassing build and truly nailing every aspect of it is extremely difficult. In many cases, people make sacrifices and find things they are willing to live with (or without) just to call a car “done.” Nicholas Rolocut is not one of those guys, and this is not one of those projects.
The Suffield, Connecticut, resident is a professional auto detailer by trade, but the 28-year-old has proven his worth as a custom car builder, too. He nailed every aspect of this slick 1996 Cobra and flawlessly turned his vision into reality. Oh, we forgot to mention that he built the car in only four months!
“I built this car to do everything well,” Rolocut explains. “After having an unreliable pushrod car for five years, it was time for an all-around unique SN95. With the Maximum Motorsports coilovers with matching Maximum-spec’d Bilstein shocks and struts, the car does not rub or bottom out. It rides very smooth and isn’t bumpy for being slammed. And it goes around corners like a BMW!”
