i wish i could but i dont think im gonna find anyone willing to trade a gt for my car, and like i said before im not looking to be in debt at 17. i just think me being 17 i dont really need a gt, the need for speed would be too tempting for me.

Awww! Bye stang! A Lightning would be sweet (Sonic Blue ) but expensive. I want one myself. Good luck finding what you want. I've loved all the F150's from old to new. I'm all about Ford.

Re: bye bye stang

There are quite a few GT's out there in your body style (94-98) for less than 4k in fair shape. You could probably sell your stang and pick one up if you really wanted to.

Trucks are nice though...I love mine, it's great for winter and hauling duty.

I'd definitely get back into a mustang eventually, they are great cars.

^Sonicpony's got a point you could pick a GT up for about the same.

I would love a truck or an SUV Explorer or simalar. The Mustang is hard to take the Dog along safely, or haul stuff but god, I love the Mustang.

I've never had a car that I just love until this one.

Re: bye bye stang

well guys i have been really thinkin and i cant get rid of my stang, im gonna go ahead and replace the shocks, struts, springs and ball joints, to get rid of this annoying squeek its got(plus it needs done anyways, 102k miles). then im gonna get me a nice set of snow tires cuz i dont wanna ruin my brand new rims and tires. and then hopefully with some mods ill be a little happier with my stang. i guess ive just kinda got bored with it because its a 6er and i havent made it anything special.

Ha ha i know what you mean. My parents wouldn't let me get a V8. Same reason. Im 17 aswell. But do you ride alot or just casual. What kind of bike are you looking for?

ive never rode anything over a 70 lmfao. picture this, a 210 pound 6ft tall kid riding a little 70? lmao but i have wanted a dirtbike since as long as i can remember.

yeah thanks brent. ill enjoy my stang more considering the attention it gets even being a v6. im sure ill be able to afford a gt soon enough, cause i plan on going into the armed forces as soon as i get out of highschool.

Re: bye bye stang

Yeah, you could do those shock/strut/etc replacements and do some mods to your car that would make it much more interesting even though it's a V6. Mustangs are classic cars no matter how old or new they are, or even what kind they are. A Mustang is a Mustang! You can really keep them nice and maintained for a long time, you just gotta want to put a lot of tender love and care into them!

Hard to sell anything on craigslist anymore with all the con artists. Check out autotrader for a run till it sells ad.

Re: bye bye stang

keep the stang and save up a few hundred buck and buy you an s10 or ranger on the cheap then get your dirt bike. i just got an s10 beater truck for 300 bucks. no joke. i got it since the mustang may have some down time soon.
