Would never trade in, I'd sell it outright if anything. Getting real close though, maybe next spring. I love the look and interior so much more.

If I still had my 13 GT500 I would be all over trading it for the 2020. Wouldn't get rid of a an 03/04 for one though.

Yeah, that would be the deal breaker. I know plenty of guys that paid MSRP for their 03 Cobra in 2002 and same for the 13 guys in 2012. That's the only way I would do it.

Mine was just a toy and I never drove it in rush hour traffic. but when I did drive it, it was fun as hell to throw around. I don't know if it was the rawness or what. It was just more fun to drive and hammer on. I think the sweet spot for the Terminator chassis is about 600rwhp. I would buy a bone stock one and throw a whipple/kb on it and call it a day. That thing always put a smile on my face.

I Loved it when I had it. But. I was ready to move on. It still had the stock blower with a 2.76 pulley, supporting mods. Dyno tune. Etc...

And I’m very happy about what I was paid for it

See now that's crazy to me. I would definitely trade an 03 for a 13 gt500 no questions asked and I'd light a fucking Terminator on fire and then take a dump on it after to get to a 20 gt500...lol

We'll have to agree to disagree. To me, the Terminator was more fun to drive than the 13. Dont get me wrong, a stock 03 versus a stock 13, the 13 is gonna win out. both modded, all bets are off.

I still get giddy when I see a lowered 03/04 coming at me on the street. They still look badass.

Heritage in late model Mustangs is lame. If you want Heritage, go buy a Classic Stang.

Technology has advanced so much lately that the cars from the last decade are so outdated. It's even further compounded by the Cobra's being on a wet noodle chassis that dates back to before I was born.

Classic cars (aka 1960's-70s' muscle cars) are killer to look at. They suck to drive anywhere besides to the local cruise night.

The sweet spot is the cars that are a little older and have a mix of an analog experience and still some of the newer technologies. Without having the technology take over in every aspect. The 03/04 Cobra is not that car. It is a cool car as it is the advancement in the Mustang having power, better brakes, and decent handling. But man, owners love to swing on them still. I guess that is what happens when they are told they have the best Mustang for years. It sticks in their heads as the real world passes them by. lol

I have a feeling the 13/14 GT500 will not hold a candle to this car in most categories. But I am sure it's commanded ADM will kill the "value" for a year or so. Let's see what happens.
