V6 or v8

Hey everyone! I need some input. I'm going to a ford auction tomorrow and obviously I'm looking to buy a mustang!! This is a dealer auction so the prices will be alot less then actually buying from the dealer! Anyway should I go for a 07/08 v6 or an 05/06 gt?? They should cost around the same but I'm not sure if I want the newer car or the "older" GT!!! Any input is helpful!
Thanks

Gt all the way.. Gas mileage is close, and that 4.0 liter v6 is useless. Also, the v8 is more effected by mods and sounds nicer with aftermarket exhaust

Re: V6 or v8

Yes definitey the 3v 4.6L, without a doubt.

If it was between the new 3.7L and the 3v I'd say consider the 3.7, it's no slouch and is a much better v6...though the torque and sound of any v8 can't be beat.
