Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

actually one of the cars i looked at last night was the warriors in pink 2008 stang---its all white w/pink trim. i really like that one cause my stepmom has battled breast cancer for 10 years now so to have that car would be something unique and some of the money would go to research.


also looked at a metallic blue (the new sonic blue or whatever) 08 v6...just a gt is gonna cost around 30k and i just can't afford that right now

also i've been looking for an 03/04 cobra and there just aren't any around here...every roush i come across is WAY out of my price range--in fact the dealer make up on some that i looked at yesterday were more than twice what roush originally tagged them for.

i don't know what is going to happen yet. but i'm not going to worry until then.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

just stick it out there are plenty of 03/04 cobras. Go to SVTPerformance - Powered by vBulletin and look in the market section at the terminators for sale area. They are well worth the wait.

You might have to make a trip and drive it back but thats not that bad, you will be happy you did.

here is one in NJ: 03 black cobra 32kmiles $20k - SVTPerformance

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

accidents are so discouraging... especially when you cant control it. at least you are okay... in the end thats all that matters (people occasionally die from deer accidents).

my car got pwned by a hit and run late one night and i didnt know until the day after. it wasn't totalled but it totally discouraged me from doing ANYTHING else to the car. in fact, i still consider my car tainted by it... im gonna sell it and probably get something new in a year or two (it only has 75k on it) due to my new job. im thinking i might go more along the lines of a business-like luxary car that has a decent amount of power to it and gets decent gas mileage (im gonna be commuting and traveling). i probably won't put any money into it... ill just get a weekend play car and mod that (not for a while though... probably at 25 for insurance and career/salary growth).

Wow.
Good to hear you are ok. That deer could have really hurt you if it came through the windshield.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

you wont find any 03/04 Cobras on dealer lots for under 25K for one in just "eh" condition. You will have to buy from a private seller, which, depending on your bank or credit union, is actually easier.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

For everyone suggesting she get an 03/04 cobra...while I agree, it would be a great bang for the buck, also keep in mind she lives in jersey...the car will need to be drivin through the winter as it is her only car...cobra + snow/ice = much worse accident than a deer. Not to mention, it is an utter sin to expose the cobra to the salt and watch it rust out underneath completely within 6 months...

So, while we can find you an 03/04 cobra without a problem...I know of several around here for sale...I would only recommend it with a second DD vehicle for the winter.

When you get the insurance check, you should buy a little Honda or something that gets good MPG. Use the rest of the money to start saving for a big ol' down payment on a Cobra and start shopping.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

well here is my plan--

if the car is indeed totaled, i'm going to get something thats good for now, it will be a mustang, but i can't be sure it will be a v8. my goal is to put the money away (i'm saving for a house) and get what i really want in about 2 years---and thats a roush. i'm pricing them all over the place but i'm just not going to be able to afford it--insurance, gas, and price wise, its just going to be too much right now (i'm still paying off school loans....modding my v6 was nice cause it was a little bit here and there and i was able to afford it)

honestly i'll be thankful with whatever i get. i'll be even more thankful if i get into another stang. if it happens to be a v8 then, even better. but i'm not going to get picky right now. my family is helping me a lot with this, so if they help me even get a v6 then i'll be happy with it.

the next week will be a lot of change--we'll just have to wait and see where that change takes me.

good thinking. it's definitely worth the wait sometimes and you can always get what you REALLY want later...and comfortably, nothing is better than that.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

you should get a slightly used vehicle so you can save a good chunk of change. It will still have the full factory warranty... you just wont take the depreciation hit driving it off the lot.
