stay away from the rebuilt. There are constantly going to be gremlins popping up, and resale is going to be a pain as well.

Go for the 00 TA.. as the others said Rebuilt Title is going to be a problem. Any other specs on the car? Trans ever rebuilt on it? Any pics under the hood and such?

Everyone is afraid of rebuilt title cars but honestly if they are fixed right and priced right you can get a great car. Just remember they are worth less and you will have a hard time selling it when the time comes. MANY cars have also been wrecked really bad and still have clean titles and most people would never know.

As far as that 98 WS6. It does not have a WS6 hood or wheels so I hope you made sure it was a real WS6 if you paid a premium. They are worth more.

This is true. I totalled my mustang and sold it with a clear illinois title.

it is a true ws6. the hood is a aftermarket firehawk hood. it has a few bolt ons (catback, lid, k&n, 85mm intake/tb, uninstalled new ZEX kit)

i agree the wheels blow balls. the tires on them are shot anyways so i will be replacing them soon.

and i wasnt afraid of the rebuilt title, in my opinion it just saves me money, but when i picked up this one for $5,500, which would have been the same price as the other, i thought it was a good buy. it has 125K on it.
