Opinions

Just wanted everyone's opinion. Next year, I'll be done with college, and I'll be looking to sell my 05 gt. my 3 replacement options are as follows:
-2003/2004 Mach 1
-2003/2004 Cobra
-2011/2012 GT 5.0
I'm leaning toward the 5.0 mainly because its a freaking 5.0, and the fact that it has a way nicer interior. I'm just looking for opinions. I love my gt, but want something with more balls that I won't have to build the snot out of, just to simply get around 400hp...

2012 GT... Personally my "dream" car (I still love my 06 V6). Gets you 420+ HP stock and comes equipped with all of the new technology plus nicer exterior+interior.

Either that, or if you can find an 03/04 Cobra with low miles that'd be considerable too, not sure about it being a DD though.

I'd go 07+ GT500 for the price on a new 5.0.

Or for a termi before any other new edge.

If a Termi is an option, I do think get where the difference is since they're all fast lol. Especially if you're going to mod it.

Sure. The GT500 can be a daily if you can afford to drive it daily.

The only reason I wouldn't drive one of those every day is because those are "collector" cars. I'd hate to put a lot of miles in them. People do, but I'm just not sure. At 5.0 on the other hand is more common and not as valuable. I wouldn't feel AS bad if something happened to it. I have time to make up my mind, but I'm leaning more toward a 5.0 at this point.
