What's up I'm new, can you tell?

Just wanted to give an introduction, and meet some people. My name is Josh and I drive a piece of crap right now, but by the end of this month I hope to be the proud new owner of a 1996 Mustang GT. (keepin my fingers crossed) Anything I should look out for when I go to look over this car?
thanks.

I can see the reason for not liking it, it was the only thing I could think of at the time I was registering.

Just a bit more about myself, my older bro has two 96 mustang GT's, one reason I am getting one myself. After driving his manual is what convinced me. I feel bad for my bro though cuz I am getting the same car he has, but his two he has both wrecked. One a guy clipped his rear-end and spun him out into a ditch totaling it. The other he was towing and forgot to disconnect the drive shaft and the tranny fluid started to boil, then it locked up the transmission which then caught the fluid on fire, all while he was on the highway. He pulled over on the side and the fire dept put the fire out, he then was sitting in the drivers seat when a semi was coming that my bro didnt see which hit his drivers door folding forward into the front fender. My bro has had some bad luck and I hope I don't with the same care.

Welcome doods!!! sweet cobra Smurf....Good luck with your purchase Hoover .Some advise, take someone that u trust and knows a lot about cars with u and have him check out the car before u buy it. That's what I did last time I bought a used car.

Thanks for the comments on the car and the welcome. I hope to have new/better pics after my trip to the adirondack nationals in sept. With the scenery in Lake George, NY...I should be able to get some decent shots. Plus, it will have some nice new Zaino on there...

They hit great...but I am looking forward to getting the new L7 solos....mine are the 2003 model. The 2004 models hit a ton harder. I want to put 4 in the trunk...but I think I am going to go with 2 of the new 10s, or 2 of the new 12s and be happy...once I get the 1250.1 amp, I will get the new subs...and then put them in their final fiberglass home. But it can still massage your back quite well at the moment.

That was my goal to before I started concentrating on the engine

I have a Directed 1100D amp right now and was planning on getting two Solobaric L7 10's in a ported box
