I just installed LT's and new MSD 8mm wires on my 94 Cobra and like an idiot one of the spark plug wires were left on a header. Where can I go to replace this 1 wire? Can I go right to MSD, or maybe Summit? Any advice??

Just to get you buy, auto parts stores, AutoZone, Pepboys Orilleys, sell indivudual wires. Probly not the same size, but will be better than a burnt wire.
Don't feel too bad, I have done the same thing and ran the AZ wire for a year, till I burnt another wire, then I changed the whole set.:)

Actually the whole thing worked out OK. I bought the blue MSD 8mm wires and I just happened to have the same color blue electrical tape. I wrapped up the burn in the wire and it runs fine. It didn't burn too deep, and before the wire was resting on the header and I think it was conducting the majority of the juice from the distributor. While the wire was resting on the header the car shook really bad due to a misfire. It's a-ok now, but thanks.

sounds like you need some spark wire boot protectors. i bought the Taylor set from summit and they were VERY nice. best $60 ive ever spent. $52.95+shipping=approx $60.
