147,478 coyote. Original motor. Moble1 oil changes every 3,000 miles. Power still all there. Perfect compression

Great to hear. Never plan on selling mine.

2012 - no mods/it was a garage queen till this last year.
2015 xmas it had 6,000 miles on it
2016 xmas I am just under 20,000 miles on it.

drove it from very far east texas to San Diego (great road trip car)

I dont even blink with this car! drama free and I love it. I have owned some cars that when I would start up I would worry lol (bmw 740i sport was the worst) I got rid of it at 160,000 miles

I am not sure if I will keep this car for a looooong time or trade it in. all depends. I love the car through!

I'm glad to finally see some over 130K miles. Wish I could have driven my 11 GT (04/10 build) that far but I couldn't deal with the tick and obnoxious amount of blow by. I hit 700 miles today on my 16 GT. I got antsy and did the exhaust Saturday!

2014 just turned 11k, no issues other that the battery. Just replaced it today, brought Ford the old one, tested it, then they gave me a new one. Wasn't holding a charge 30 minutes in n out.

2011 GT with 60k miles, 10k of those miles with a supercharger. Only the original battery and a-arms have been replaced due to age.

Fully synthetic oil ever 5000 miles, drain and fill with the auto transmission at 60k, swap out spark plugs every 5000 miles.

Not breaking chops and just curious but why would you need to change spark plugs every 5k miles

I use copper plugs. I am sure I could go 15k, but I just swap them out. It's a hold over from my troubleshooting when I had the supercharger installed. I probably could go back to Iridium plugs.
So with a SC one should change the spark plugs every 10 to 15k miles.

Any help is appreciated and credit will be given. And yes I will have a how to section and will be glad to put it on there. I am going to have a members section and Store. The store will so far include Eval95's Emblems. If anyone has anything Mustang related to sell and can keep stock in their products 85% of the time then let me know.

When buying my car I saw a 2013 with 92,000 miles. It ran well but I would never buy a car with that mileage. Dealer was insane too...wanted $29,000 for it. I laughed in his face. I got mine 2012 GT Brembo with 40k miles for $19,500

2013 with 92,000 miles and dealer was asking $29k? You called the cops didn't you?

My 2013 GT has 62,500 miles and book value on it is around 18k.

It's insane! I know. With 18k you getting a 2013 V6 in Puerto Rico. There are high import taxes. An example...2016 Challenger Hellcat in US $62,495. Same car in Puerto Rico $99,000 before financing. Don't believe me? Here are some examples:

Ah yes, import taxes. I lived in Greece for several years and a 2 liter engine is considered high capacity over there. Any vehicle over 2liters will get taxed big time. A brand new 2006 Nissan Murano was 70 thousand euro. Around 85 thousand dollars at that time. If you wanted to import a corvette, dream on!! You would have ended up paying over 100k dollars.

Import taxes are mind numbing in most countries.

It does appear that low-mileage mustangs are valued a grand or two higher than their equivalents with higher mileage. IMO after looking at them for 6 months. I ended up with a 2012 stock GT with NAV and 43k miles. Bought the extended warranty just in case.
