My I want a GT rant

Ok I looked at the GT's yesterday I am missing having a sports car that I can drive and save a bit of gas in on my way back and forth to work. So I was going down Hwy 153 and saw it so I turned around while my wife was asking me what I was doing she sat in my truck when I first pulled up and looked at it for about 10 minutes before finding a salesman with a key well it was very nice only some minor stuff wrong i.e. cig burns and missing owners manual and the cigar lighter clean other than that. Leather,5 speed sounds and feels like its got a shift kit installed,decent tires and not ragged out with 38K on the clock not to bad for an 02. Now I have to try to get a loan for the bad boy and a third job but first the price is coming down or I will forget about it. My wife isnt to happy withthat desicion as we are looking for a house right now and Mustang shouldnt be on my list at all according to her. I say if I am willing to work for it let me have it right???Right.

Re: My I want a GT rant

I dont know its pretty tempting I have checked out EBay some today but not much really grabbed me like this one and very few with that little amount of mileage. I figure work the third job long enought to pay it off and then go back to two jobs.

Re: My I want a GT rant

Save your money for now and pick up something quicker than the stock 99-04 GTs... they simply dont have enough anywhere near stock. After you get your house then pick up a mach 1 or something.

Re: My I want a GT rant

true, but i dont think many people like to lay down and drive. i cant stand my boss' 02 SS, uber legroom, but jesus im in almost a full laydown position with the seat almost all the way upright. it works for him i guess, he loves the position hes in while driving. i tried moving his car once since we sometimes park double parked, and i could barely drive the dam thing. and were the same height.

Re: My I want a GT rant

If its not a manual then dont buy it you will thank me down the road.

Dont spend every dime you have to afford a car that will just lose you money also in the end.

Exactly what I was thinking. Shift kits are for auto's.


Sounds just like a friend of mine who got a Mineral Grey 03 Cobra this weekend. Salesman said it had 590 hp and a 5 speed. The car has the UPR kit that came out not long after the termy's came out, the $1199 to run 11.99's. Bunch of ****ing morons those car salesman.

Re: My I want a GT rant

Well I went back and check on it again still I love it but my wife is not going for the 3rd job thing she wants me to trade my truck in on it if I get it. Heck no I am not trading my truck off it took me long enought to get the darn truck I wanted and its been the best vehicle I have ever owned also the newest and most low mileage.
As far as the price they are asking 16K for it found some on Ebay cheaper and went to go look at a GT at a friends lot and he sold an 00 for 4K two hours before I got there and sold a 89 Fox built last Sat my heart sank. I told him to hollar at me next time he gets something like that in I would be very interested in one also my friend whit works at a local Nissan/Ford dealership checked the lots they had all been sold and he found a silver Fox Body told him to check on it tommorow and call me.
I think I will look in the 4K to 6K range for a 00 to 01 or 89 to 93 and take a personal loan out for it since the banks wont touch anything that old.Yeah I am looking for something as DD to take the mileage and fuel use off my truck and I miss something sporty to drive but of course being me I will only roll in V8's.

Re: My I want a GT rant

16 grand for an 02 GT??? It better have 6 grand sitting in the glovebox, either that or only 5k on the clock. There are many others out there for lots cheaper with more mods, if that's what your looking for.

Re: My I want a GT rant

Dang, Thomas, aweomse looking stang!

If I had that kind of money, I'd ditch my 94 v6 Camaro, and buy that!

Heck, if I had money period I'd buy almost any Mustang and ditch the Camaro, though wouldn't get the 94-98 V6 stangs though. Like the body style, but my Camaro's got more power than those and I'm already wanting more power.
