I feel like he's had his current car a long time. What's the conversion? Like dog years, 7 das years to 1 normal year?

He's had 47 cars over a 10 year span so I would say that 5 Das years is equal to 1 real year. He had the old mustang for almost two years so that's like 10 years for him.

If he's really had that many cars....that's insane



Congrats though! I know he's got a real thing for verts. Manual trans I assume?

It's a manual, 11k on it, mine had 10k.

Car has I THINK every option minus Nav and Track Pack, without being a California special.

I'm stupid excited over buying basically the same car over again to be honest. I couldn't sanction the cost of a Vert when I bought my coupe, and pricing has fallen to the point where it's basically the same purchase over again, but as a loaded vert.

All the mods minus the shift bushing are moving over to the new car.

Side-note: I found that Maximum Motorsports sells a Bolt-In 4 point Bar for these cars that even keeps the rear seats finally, didn't know that until this week.

So that will be ordered pretty immediately so I can go racing without getting flak.

Also, as much as I like the interior of the new ones, I don't think it's worth the extra $14k over what I paid for this car just for cooled seats and Nav. I also still strongly prefer the way the 13/14s look, and just can't get over my dislike for the 15 exteriors.

I also love the stupid pony puddle lamps this one has.

This one has ontop of that, the 'upgraded' interior package, so the accent stripe on the leather, factory metal/satin shift knob, the little chrome accent Ponys on the door.

Also has the pony puddle lamps, shaker, sync, heated seats, my color, track apps, CS spoiler, strut tower brace, and I'm sure other nick-nacks, don't recall what was standard with the Premium cars or verts to be honest.

Probably a 3.31 geared car.

Sync really makes the NAV moot after having it even for just an evening,I don't know why I was so against it back when I bought my car, or so grumpy about needing the GPS

Honestly, I will always want to have a stupid project like that, but it won't happen until we have the space to do that.

I didn't want to go too far 'down the rabbit hole' with my Coupe when I knew without a shadow of a doubt I wanted a Vert.

Thanks all! I think this solidifies that s197 convertibles are kind of 'my thing'.

Sounds gay as fuck I know, but there really is something enchanting about a big V8, the top down, a manual transmission, and some open road in a Mustang.
