Ok, here are my options for next year. Right now I have an 01 V6. Of course this couldn't hold me off so I plan to see lit and get a new mustang.

1. 03 Cobra (roughly 400 HP)
2. 99-04 mustang GT (260 HP)
3. 05 GT (roughly 300 HP)

I CAN'T DECIDE!
What do you guys think???

Im thinking the cobra is a pretty universal choice. I'm just getting info so I can decide. A little pre mature this decision won't be made for a while bit I just wanted to know what to start looking for

I'm pretty sure it does. Let me double check. I live the Mach 1 though. It has like 45 more horse than a reg GT and the same amount as an 05 GT

Re: Question

I don't know why you would want a performance car with an auto. I wouldn't be able to do it. My brother in law wants to trade his '02 GT auto for my '86 Vert manual. I don't know if I could do that though.

Re: Question

The only reason I'd do it is because I could definitely trade that for a notch. Probably a pretty nice one at that.

It's just easier. Idk. I don't plan on racing for a living. Just a quality car and a daily driver and the occasional smoke some ricers car. Lol
