Didn't you just lower your car and planned on getting a ton of aftermarket parts for it!?!?

I think you should get an older fox body and tune that b*tch up. No one ever thinks a fox body is worth a sh*t and it's the perfect sleeper 'Stang.

Want a 5 speed. I want a cobra in my tear. I like the body better. When I went to the mustang shop I saw a 1996 cobra mystic paint 18 inch wheels. It was sweet and forsale. Change my perspective if my car.

Awh so you have an auto. I'll let you test drive my ride if you ever get your @$$ out for a 'Stang run. It's an 07 but manual nonetheless.

Heavier too. The only thing I dislike about my car is it starts to feel like a boat on wheels sometimes. The invite is open pending you want to take a cruise with my buddy & I?

Nope, I told you I would take a cruise up there with you if you held off until a Thursday or Sunday. You went ahead & went so I'll have to check it out on my own.

Re: new car

well I would love a 98 cobra~ the trouble is its FAR easier finding an 04 gt in good shape vs a 98 cobra... the one advantage is there are many cobra owners that took great care of their car so they are out there, they will just cost a bit more~

other alternative is an 03/04 mach 1, great cars for sure or 99/01 cobra.

I gave less than $6,000 for my 03 GT Vert with 130k miles and in near-perfect condition. Found it at a Global Imports in Atlanta, parked next to a $130,000 Mazzerati. Turns out, rich people don't want used stangs... so the dealership was practically giving it away. There are great deals out there, just gotta make sure you're gonna love whatever you spend your cash on.
