Are you looking for only a vert or hardtop too?

Did you ever think maybe I don't want a car that is all out performance? I OWN A DRAG TRUCK.... Sure its not the fastest, but I can damn well make it competitive with the budget I finally have this year.

Yeah 3V>2V, but is there REALLY a significant difference in performance? Both are 14 second cars stock for stock. ( average ) You want the perfect Mustang, count your pennies and buy a new 5.0. Want the next best thing, a 05-09.
I want a mustang because I want a mustang.
You wont buy a camaro or firebird (98-02) cause they are "older", but want to know about 99-04 mustangs?

Ok I am done now. For me, it depends on the day. Some days I like the 99-04 style better, and some days I like the 05-09 style better. The interior is what would sway me more. Do you want a 2004 Mustang with 1994 interior, or do you want a 2005 Mustang with 2005 interior?

Its the 'body style'

I would not buy a 99 mustang because of its age. I would be buying 03-07 most likely since I need to be more specific...

Default 99-04 Vs. 05-09 Mustang GT's

I agree with the better and roomier interior on the 05+ cars.

Also, if you into what other people think (like the opposite sex or what your freinds think you spent on a car) its the 05+ for the win.

Getting the best deal on the cleanest car: go pre 05 FTW.

Nice! Might buy a Challenger SRT-8 (if their prices ever fall from the stratosphere) as a toy or a HEMI tradesman pick-up as a DD in a few years.


....seriously though I know you love Mustangs, but wouldn't it look better with a LSX in there. I plan on dropping a mint on a SRT-8 Challenger one day, but will have to put a LSX in there just because.

4v cams cost a ton, 2v cams are $600-ish.

Use the mark rotating assembly seeing as how its the same as a 4v

43cc combustion chamber, tune it for e85 and it would rock

Wow, GM and I didn't even get involved yet.

A buddy of mine has a 3 valve and they are pretty damn nice cars. I was considering one before the Camaro come back was announced (and maybe I was a little drunk). The older (04 and older) mustangs are just not as nice inside and out.

I dunno Das, I would prolly do the newer ford stangs. I really didn't like the interior in the older ones. They were really bland IMO. I dunno if the newer one looks better on the outside, but I still like it a bit better especially b/c they offer a v6 worth a damn. Found any deals worth a damn?

3 yrs ago I bought a 2004 saleen vert supercharged with 2500 miles that was traded in at my job. I also owned a ls1 firehawk at the same time of owning the saleen and I still have the firehawk for a reason and it's just my preference. I work for ford dealership and would look and drive the 05-09 bodystyle and it's way more comfortable and the 3valve is much stronger, just the ride alone in the 05-09 made me wish the saleen would have been one year newer and I would still own the Saleen today. The 04 felt so old compared to the new bodystyle. If you can afford a used 2011 5.0 buy that one it's a bad mutha and makes the 99-09 bodystyle look and feel stupid on the road. If your really stuck on the 99-04 buy a terminator we all know what those are capable of. If you can't find a clean terminator please do yourself a favor and buy the 05-09 bodystyle they are very affordable since people want the 5.0.

If your going to be modifying it, 99-04 parts are much cheaper. 3v stuff is a little more pricier.

i prefer the 04 body style over the 05+. too ugly. doesnt look anything like a new retro look. just squared off mustang.

6 banger 4.0 are dogs . And I don't care if my DD is faster than my Ranger, I built that truck from damn near the ground up which is more than can be said for many people here, REGARDLESS of how slow it is . It has been a learning experience start to finish and if I run 15s, or 13s, at the end of the day I built that truck and am proud.

05-09 GT's run low 14's realistically. a 13.9 pass in a press car driven by a professional is not going to be easily achievable.

I've seen 05-09 GT's crack into the 12's for less than 2 grand (Intake/gear/tire/canned tune/Cut-out), they respond well to modifcations. Stock for stock, just about any LSX will be faster, but as mentioned multiple times by multiple people, that isn't the topic, nor is 'bang for the buck' with mods for Ford Vs Ford, OR Ford Vs GM.

After test driving the 04, I'm going to have to stick with shopping for 05+'s... The interior REALLY is worlds nicer, thank you for those that had constructive input :-)

I know you're set on a stang (which is a good choice) but have you thought about an S2000 at all?

ACTUALLY, that is one of the cars I test drove before I bought my old 05 Vert.

HUGE fan, and would buy one in a heart beat except they are REALLY holding their value well since they stopped making them which gives them a fairly sizable price premium over a comparable 05 GT from what I've seen. That and being a 2 seater does semi kill DD drive-ability.

I think the S2000 is a gorgeous car, just as fast, better handling, better MPG than an 05+ GT, but the 2 things above kill it as an option for the most part.

*edit*

For example, this is the ONLY S2000 within 100 miles that is under 18K, and 2005 or newer *again, looking for below 15K* There are 6 or 7 05+ GT's within 25 miles that meet those requirements.

That's crazy. I was looking at them in the fall and they were under $10k for 90k miles or so. There was also waaaay more for sale at that time. 5 within 100 miles :mamaru:
