Trade in SteedaQ350 for GT500??

Been tossing around the idea of buying a 2nd mustang
I'm looking at an 07-09 GT500

Here my dilemma.
I haven't seen any other Steedas on the road. So I know I have a serialized car that doesn't have many brothers and sisters. So do I hold onto my Steeda and buy a GT500? Or trade in my Steeda on a GT500 and just pay the difference in price?

All opinions are welcome and will actually help influence my decision

While the steeda car is cool and all, it definitely won't hold value better than a GT500, plus it won't be as fun. get the shelby

If I was lucky enough to have a Steeda, I would certainly never part with it. Especially if you got the $$$ for the gt500 without getting rid of the Steeda. I would need a Lotto winning for either of those lol

Lol I can get the GT500 without parting with the Steeda.
It comes down to, do I spend 30k on another car, or trade in + 5-6k
And insurance with beat me over the head for both if them.

I would really have a hard time parting with my Steeda. Seeing that it is a built track car. And to do all the upgrades that it has, would cost me quite a bit of money.

Just keep it. What's so great about the GT500 that you want one? Is it because of the increase in power?

Just upgrade the Steeda. You can pick up a GT500 later.

I've already spoken with Sal at Steeda about the build.
I guess I'll just keep my Steeda and make it a monster.
Plus I like when people come up to me and say 'what's a Steeda?'

After talking it over with my cousin a few others, ill go with Primer.
I already have a solid platform to build on top of. And all performance mods will be done by Steeda so that it will stay true to the car itself.
I'll just have to find a nice Fox for a 2nd vehicle

Keep the Steeda and get a Roush also, that would be a good collection.

I looked at a 427R when I was searching for a Stang. But they weren't willing to negotiate
And the 427R is the only Roush I'd consider

+1 Shelby's are overrated imo I would improve the steeda and if you had to have another get a 427r or a built fox

Not sure. I still have to go over particulars with Sal/Gus at Steeda. We talked about it last week a lil bit.
The alternative would be buying a GT500

I have found them for 27-29k
I wouldn't be talking about doing it if I couldn't afford it. I coulda bought a 13' gt500 outright, but not trying to have that much money tied up in a car without having a 2nd vehicle
But yeah, I've found gt500s for well under 30k.

I'd rather see a fully built Steeda mustang then another run of the mill GT500.

Steeda are usually GT mustangs with stuff done.... most people can do the same so I dont really see them as special. A GT500 at least is a Mustang that is specified as a GT500 etc by VIN and will hold its value and be more of a car
