While the terminator is nice because of the power potential, personally I never cared for the s95 platform. For comfort, quality, and altogether more balanced package, I'd say s197 with a 5.0

Its all your personal preference pretty much. Both are amazing and you'll love either.

^ that I agree with. But if I could do it over again I would have gotten a terminator. But I love my stang regardless.

Drive both and see what you like. The 5.0 is nice and smooth and luxurious as a car like this can be, the Terminator is literally a straight up muscle car. Its low on amenities, the platform is dated, its loud and obnoxius and fast as ****.

With that said I'll take the Terminator any day of the week if given the chance. The terminator is one of those cars we'll be talking to our kids about and the window is closing on owning a nice one.

I tell a LOT of ppl who are talking about getting this and that and the other for their GTs to add up the cost of all that and then see if it is close to what it would cost to get a Terminator. Plus you can still finance one. I mean that car literally has it all.

Termi= modern legend, definite head turner, built to perform period 5.0= typical muscle car, still badass, comfy with plenty of power..... Either way you'll love both but I'd say the termi

Odometer shows 80k... 700whp... well there are a few issues. 1 is the mileage, 2 is the stick shift being in there at that power level. 3 is the fact that if its a dealer you have no way of meeting/talking to the guy who did all the work and getting a feel for whether he/she knows wtf they are talking about.

You can't find a Termi closer to you than that? You can find a really clean stock one with less miles than that for a good deal less than $20k.

That motor isn't working hard at that level. Manual is the only way to go.

Car looks clean. I'd check the fuel system to make sure there is enough to support that level.

At 700whp the longblock isn't exactly working hard but isn't exactly going easy on it either. This is the level where you start to worry a little about the Manley rods they came with.

And no, manual is not the only way to go, not at 700whp. Clutches that don't grab all the way or last for very long, manual is EXTREMELY hard on the body even a beefed up one at that power level... there are other benefits to going to a built auto at that power level but I'll get off my soap box.

Now if I built a 700whp car and I knew everything that was in it, I assembled it myself, tuned it myself or had it tuned by someone I trust... might be ok. Would be very leery of a car like this from a dealer. VERY leery...

I agree! I know in my home state(Georgia) there's plenty of well kept termis low miles some bone stock and some beefed up for 16k-28k
