So, what do you think?

What do you think is wrong with this car? An 05 GT for $8,600?

That's about what I would expect a dealer to ask for a car that is almost 10 years old, with 100k on it.

Why it's the truth. For 8600 go get an ls1 f-body or something that has potential and power if the coyote cars are out of the budget. Unless your buying it for looks or something...

The op isn't asking opinions about what to do with his money. He is asking about buying this car

Yeah pretty much... By today's standards of "good power" anyways. Without opening the engine up or using a power adder....

Yep, just my .02 unless he wants it specifically for looks or that body style I'd say look at something else... There's better bang for the buck out there.

If you are going by todays standards of power the LS1 also isn't even the greatest. Plenty of other great motors out there.

After having like 4 of them for a reason I have to disagree. I'm not biast to either brand either I like all muscle cars. But hard to argue when u can put in full exhaust a stall tune and slicks and run high 11's-low 12's and buy the car for like 4 grand these days... The 3 valve cars your maybe high 12's with same mods. But yes I agree stock rating even for that is getting weak these days when 6 bangers on the Gen 5 camaro and 11+ Mustang are making the same power... Actually a certain comparison I seen comes to mind. Lol

I've driven an LS1. It is a nice motor, but not the end all to motors. Like said before, comparing it to todays standards we see the LS7 making 505bhp which is nice, there is the GT500 making 662bhp. Even like you mentioned the '11 V6 which puts out 305bhp. The LS1 was amazing for its time (10 years ago), but its phasing out.

Define what good power is too you? Can't the 4.6 make around 450 rwhp on factory internals? How much freaking power does the OP want?,

I would much rather have an 05-09 GT than a Fox. There are plenty of things out there more powerful than an 05-09 GT, but that's what I'd like to have. It's not a necessity. I've had a '14 5.0 - it was fine. I just like the 05-09 look. Plus, it's cheap.

Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. In that case, it would be a big hell no. Not interested in anything but Mustangs.

Well, I actually went from the 5.0 to a Honda Accord (for 2 months) and then to a '14 V6. The 05 GT would just be something to play around with.
