Drove a new SS today!

So as you all kno, I am looking for a new car. I haven't tried a Mustang GT or a new SS so i was in the area and figured I would give em a try. The SS was a beautiful silver, black interior the seats really surprised me they were awesome! Power built up evenly throughout the powerband. I put her in 2nd and see how bad turbo lag was at low rpm's and wow it kicked in very quick and somewhat abruptly but felt awesome.

Power: 8
Handling: 9
Sound: 8
Launch: 8

Then I drove the GT since the SS was way outta my priuce range even with gm sicount and 1000 buck rebate. I came in with low expectations but they were wrong! I Loved the car suprisingly! Sound was amazing, premium Cobra sound system, all leather, black with black rims, and convertable top with GT hood. It was a NICE care and I don't like mustangs usually but I loved this car! Got the guy down to 13,900 from 16k and it was a 2003 GT w/26k on it. I may buy a mustang never thought id say that haha.

hahah my friend joe is trading in his mustang for a new SS. the price of gas is just too much, on a v8 its insane how quick he goes though gas. And also gas prices are most likly going to never come down, making low mpg cars drop in value rapidly. he wants to get id of his car before its worth nothing.. i see all these used car lots that are dieing to get rid of these stangs, and oher v8's but no one will buy them.

if you really want that stang im sure you can get him lower.

Yeah but also I drive maybe 12 miles a day. I'm not too worried about gas considering i don't drive a lot and 9/10 of my miles are on I-71 (highway).

The aftermarket parts are going to cost alot more but your going have alot of aftermarket support too so thats a plus. i've been around mustangs all my life and just have a sort of connection with them and my unlces were so disappionted when i got my cobalt lol.


But this is my dream mustang if i were to ever get one right down to the last detail.



Go for the mustang!
