^ Funny enough, I was just having this conversation with a friend of mine. He was telling me how I should trade it in for an 05 GT. I told him maybe this 2001 GT I saw for 14 grand but he knows how much I love the 05's.

I'm finalizing a deal myself.My 03 v6 and 96 v6 ragtop going in on trade for an 01 Cobra.Both v6's are auto.The Cobra is manual.I've been watching for a GT but when a nice one hits the lot,they don't last long.I got lucky on the Cobra,a salesman called me when they got it in.

thats awesome. my buddy rick is finding me a nice gt. dont care what color or anything. its about whats on the inside, a 4.6l v8. i cannot wait. i got a long day of work ahead of me tom. but i took thurs and fri off to figure this out. i cant wait. getting a quote on how much the trade in val. on my v6 is. im hoping 9 grand but im not going to set myself up for a big letdown. i offered my buddy 14 for his wrecked roush but hes trading it in for a cobra. i really wanted that. 02 stage 2. anyways im looking at just using my trade a the down payment and then using my savings to make her growl. im mad, i just bought a gt takeoff bumper off ebay (silver clearcoat), a cold air kit from mac, white gauges, and a mach 1 grille kit. im selling them all except the grill kit. i plan on using it for my new gt and taking my 03 cobras off and putting them on my gt. if anyone is interested in any of these NEW products or the stock gt rims pm me. there for my 02 v6 so if anyone has a 99+ they want to put some money into pm me for a good deal. i will sell it as a package and get bacvk to you on the wheels.

On the deal I'm doing it kind of works like this:

I've only been in the 03 for a year,it had 12,800 miles on it when I bought it.I took very good care of it and was able to get a strong offer from the dealer.There was a little bit of negative equity left....thats where the '96 comes in.The 96 was able to get past the negative eq. and throw some dollars at the price of the Cobra.The 96 was in remarkable shape and I had it looking good....the morale here is:Take good care of your ride.It helps alot when you want to make a trade!

I'm picking up the snake tomorrow,can't wait!Its mineral grey,low miles.

Tbone,good luck man.Keep us posted on how it works out for you.

trading in is the devil, you can get 3 to 4k more by simply selling it in the paper... ford offered me 7k for my old MINT shape car and i sold it 5 weeks later for 9500

yeah i have gotten that alot. i found a red gt aabout 70 miles away that i really like. im going to try and possibly work out a deal there. Still dont have my car, today is the week anniv of it being in the dealers shop getting detailed and the seat control panel and cowel vent replaced. Theyre going to give me a quote on it as to how much they will give me. Hopefully I will have this all done by the end of next week. thats optimistic.
