03-04 cobra, 03-04 mach I or 05gt?

Okay come 1-2 years from now i'll be getting back into a real sportscar. It's a real tough choice because I love all three of them, but if you were in my spot which would you choose?

03-04 cobra

03-04 Mach I

05 gt

I would wait until you are ready to buy, then choose. It's amazing what pops up when you are ready.

I was wanting to buy a C5 and then found the evo. Don't set your goals on 1 car. Your plans/likes,etc will change in 2 years.

i agree.. but my opinion would be a 2005+ model. for the simple fact that you can buy it new or fairly new. a used cobra or mach 1 was probably driven hard and just isnt the same as a new car.

True, but not from a mustang. Mustang is just my car. I wish I still had my gt. Thats what I really want again. Who knows when that time comes I might just sell my truck and buy another gt like my old one, none-the-less it's gonna be a stang I get.

I'd go with the 05 unless you could find a brand new 04 Cobra in 2 years.

Just remember that the 05 is a whole new style and the aftermarket is having a feast on it. These cars will be running insane times with a reasonable amount of money spent.

No it wont nate, now quite with it already. I wasn't happy in my 6er so I got my truck and i'm happy with it, but i've always wanted a v8 and decide to wait till I was 23 for the sake of lower insurrance. My mind will not change from this so drop it already its getting old.

Dude, whats getting old is all the talk, i will bet in 2 years, you are still in the truck. Say what you want, but I can promise it. You can hardly afford your truck anyway, how do you think that in 2 years you will be able to afford any of those cars!! Take out ANOTHER loan?? Financing, whether you "do it right" or not, is a horrible idea. You can't get financing on lock dude, noone ever does.

Besides, if this is supposedly happening in 2 years, whats the point of posting about it now???


I am just speaking from experience bro, ive given up on what I am doing with cars until i fix the one I have.

EDIT: And pay it off! I am never financing a car again!

Your speaking to me like I dont know anything. I've messed around with financing more then you have nate. I was just asking for their opinions on the cars. By the time this actually happens i'll have a lot paid down on my truck plus a downpayment. I'm going to be getting a better job here soon. Might actually be getting back into grounds work making 11 an hour. Jojo told me about the job so i'm seriously considering it because he's looking into going to work there also. You gotta realise i'm not planning to go in there without being able to get a good payment on it. That is why i'm not buying a brand new car again.

ok, ok, the point is across. Anyway, Mike, from those three cars, Id say either the cobra or the 05, thats a tough one for me. I love the 05s looks, and the power aint bad, but you just can;t beat the cobras power, in a mustang, yet. Its tough.

and y'all wonder why sometimes I dont like posting here. Yeah I went through a faze where i changed my mind every other day, but I stopped that **** a while back. I've been with my truck for almost a year now and its done me right. 2 years from now my truck will be hitting highmiles and major repairs. I love my truck to death, but I dont wana deal with that ****. Also just for your information when I got rid of my gt over 2 years ago I told myself that when I turned 23 I would get back into a real sports car. So tell me after 2+ years I haven't changed my mind from that. It's not like i'm talking about getting rid of my truck in a week or some bull**** like that. I came here for opinions on those cars NOT TO GET FLAMED. I understand your points Nate, but i'm not going to be making the same mistakes I have in the past. I learned from them and again I say that is why i'm NOT buying a new mustang nor going in without a downpayment. Also tell me whats wrong with trading in a vehicle after having it for 3 years? I dont want to pay this truck off because if I do i'll be paying way more then what it is worth and is another reason why i'm hanging onto it for a few years and THEN getting rid of it.

i'd say go with the cobra, mainly because the mach1 is more showy than power comparatively. and the 05 gt is more played out now.

This one is simple. If you are going to have 40k+ to drop on a baseline SVT Mustang (no longer called cobra...for now) then get that. However, I would say go with the 03/04 cobra. When the 07s come out, there will be a flood of 03/04s hitting the used car lots. Odds are you will be able to find one that has a lot of the normal mods on it already. If you drive the car before you buy it, you should be able to tell if it is good or not since if something is wrong with it, odds are it will be an obvious thing.

Overall, 03/04 is the way to go in my opinion.

Wont have 40k to drop lol so used is the only way i'm willing to go. I'm done with buying new cars. The 03-04 cobra is top of my list right now.

Cant lose in any of the choices but Cobra would be my choice but then again like ive mentioned before I have a lil cobra fund starting up cause as you seen Smurfin say once the 07 is released in late 06 theres gonna be a slew of 03/04 cobras and im gonna be right there to pick up the lowest mileage one I can find from here to Florida :yup:
