Talking Starting my hunt for my next mustang!

So do to some health issues with my mom we've decided its best for her not to drive. So we decided to sell the fusion and just keep my dads truck instead. Check clears tuesday and I will be looking for a mustang for 5k or less. More then likely a foxbody since I have wanted one for while.



I've missed jamming gears in a mustang.

Thank's she's pretty healthy, but in the last year she has had two back surgeries and one knee surgery. We also found out she needs surgery on both her eye's. So with all the combined we decided it was best not to push her trying to drive. Maybe later one once all this is taken care of, but for now it'll be a while.

Re: Starting my hunt for my next mustang!

I'm going to call about this one tomorrow and try and go look at it. It looks pretty clean from what I can tell in the pictures.

That looks nice! I like the hatch look better than the notch.

I'm about a 50/50 on the notch vs hatch. I've seen some badass looking notch's. There is one I am eye balling.

1989 Ford mustang

There are also a few sn95 5.0's I have found. Particularly this one. I really like it for that fact its pretty much stock and low miles for the year. I've never owned a convertible either so that is a plus. I am sure I could easily talk them down to 5k. My only probably is I am not a huge fan of the red.

I really liked one convertible on craigslist today too and I'm not usually the biggest fan. I might go for the '94 that I found.

I've definitely seen some badass notches for sure and definitely not putting them down one bit I'm always drawn to the hatch personally.

Re: Starting my hunt for my next mustang!

87 ended up being a bust. had too many things wrong with it for the price he wanted. He came down to 3800, but I couldn't pay more then 3k for it. Whoever painted it did a bad job. Lots of orange peel and in some places it had runs in the paint. So the search continues.
