I just got my 01 Cobra out from it's winter sleep, hosed it off, and let the wife take it (first mistake). It ran fine for 20 minutes and the began to stumble, it died and was pushed about 10 houses home (made her push). It will start sometimes and run real rough and won't hold an idle, and then die and sometimes it won't start at all. Any thoughts on a possible solution. Thanks in advance

My first thought is fuel. That's a symptom of poor fuel flow. That includes a clogged line or a pump giving up on you. If it has sat for a while it can gum up quickly. My first suspect would be the fuel filter. Then I'd check the rest of the system.

I feel confident if that cobra were in my garage, it could be brought back to peak health.

Did you use any fuel stabilizer over the winter? If not, it's probably turned to varnish.
