Trading my 03 for a 07....thoughts??

Ok well I've owned my 03 since 2004, I love my stang but I think it's time for something newer... I'm basically looking to trade in my 03 for the same thing but on the newer body style...

So what I'm asking you guys/gals... What are the pros and cons for this swap?

Re: Trading my 03 for a 07....thoughts??

they aren great cars but not much better in the performance department. I would highly consider a GT500 if you are at all interested in that level of power and the ability to make MUCH more for cheap~ but the GT's are nice just only 300hp leaves much to be desired to me.

I would upgrade to an 03-04 cobra or the 2011 5.0 GT. They come stock with approx 400 horses. You are not gonna get that performance from an 07 GT.

I agree with Smokedog on the 03-04 Cobra.

Ok, well then I'm going to look around for some motors and trannys, because I'd rather keep my body and build the motor and suspension...then having to buy a whole nother stang.
Good it bad idea?
