You know what really ticks me off?

Right now I'm looking at 4 different 2001 Ford Mustang GT's, 2 being the same color as my car, one green, and one silver. All of them have under 30k miles except for the green one which has 42k miles.

Why am I ticked? All of these cars are selling for 13k and I don't have an income ;(

damn it. I wanna get rid of this 6 and gain me an 8.

Haha, it's all good man...I keep thinking of how good a v8 will sound, then looking at my bank account and remembering why I'm listening to a V6 everyday lol.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

i wanted a gt forever, then I saved up and kept the 6 until I had enough saved... now I have my car and im much happier than if I would have got a gt.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

True, but I bet insurance plays a factor when you see GT and cobra right? :p

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

my insurance went up 30 a month going from the v6 to an 03 mustang cobra. So in my case it was pretty much the same~ Gas is more of a factor than insurance~ I would ask your insurance agency. Im 24 as well. I have not had any accidents other than hitting a deer, bumped a woman at like 3mph, i have one ticket on my record as well~

I would ask around I would not pay much more than what I pay for insurance. You should be able to gain insurance for 100-140 a month on a gt or cobra. I also have full coverage with a 250 deductable, else it would have only went up like 20 bucks a month over the v6.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

Your 24? I'm 23 damn it. The most I have is 1 accident on my record. I have another one off record but whatever

So about gas, how much does it cost at the pump and how many miles does the beast run on?

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

nah just get the GT. when you go cobra, you get that "Cobra is God" attitude which ive seen in every cobra driver ive met.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

I think I wanna go GT as well, wait till I'm older and learn how to control the power of an 8 before jumping right into it

I'm still curious about gas though

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

gas depends on your driving. mine changes from week to week, so my mileage changes. one week i can be a very calm driver, and stay under 3k. the next week, im balls to the wall, sideways, going up to 4500 before shifting cause it sounds so badass.

i average 200 miles per tank, and thats just doing 10 gallons@30 bucks. i did get 386 miles per a full tank on the highway before the gas light came on, i wouldve went for the 400 mark but the next half hour was all uphill(Grapevine) so i didnt want to risk it.

Really now?

So it's almost the same as a 6 would get until you start having fun with it?

I get 220 miles for every 11 gallons, so i could 440 per tank, since i have a 22 gallon tank.

Thats with me driving like an ***.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

I dont have the "cobra is god" att. I know what the car is and what it can do and there are tons of much faster and nicer cars out there. I just wanted something that I didnt have to do a ton of work to and that was more rare while still being a stang. I respect all car owners, ive owned v6s for 9 years and had to fight for respect and pretty much didnt get any so dont tell me I think my car is better than any other mustang out there because it is not. They are all mustangs/fords/etc there are different levels depending on what you want out of a car.

I was just putting an idea out there, if you go with a v6,v8, sohc, pushrod, dohc etc etc just get it cuz its the right choice for you at your current given situation and you will be more happy in the end. Pick what best fits what you need at the moment.

As far as my gas milage I get 19-20mpg driving normally and as of now its probably 55/45 hwy/city driving. On the interstate or alot of hwy driving I could probably get 22-24mpg~ but I have yet to have that chance very much.

I have to work hard for my car and I had to save up for a very long time to afford it so I have put in the time and repect it and all car owners knowing the hard work many of them have to do in order to have their car regardless of what it is.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?

I test drove a 88 gt today...that dark maroon color. Just painted, nearly perfect interior, convertible. If only it wasn't an auto. And the fact the guy wanted 10k for it...95k miles, but still, 10k for a car that is almost 20 years old? lol.

no not you man. like i said, cobra owners ive met, like in person, in like, real life.

if i could find a cobra in my area for under 25k, ill buy it right now and sell the GT. sadly, its cali, and everythings 5K more here than the rest of the US.

Re: You know what really ticks me off?
