    Thumbs up The time has FINALLY arrived

    After much waiting and getting all the shit cleaned off of my credit reports, Im finally purchasing a car. I was just approved this morning through my bank for a loan of $25K at 7.25%. I'll have the check tomorrow. Just need to find a car I really like. Im kinda thinking about this one.

    Seems like a low price on a blown GT.
    I would look for the car that doesn't have a bolt turned on it personally.

    That looks like a good car to me, and especially at that price. I would make sure that nothing is wrong with it though. I traded my 05 GT in for the 03 Cobra, and it was almost stock, and I got like $27,000 for it?!?

    I get the whole stock car thing, but I will be either replacing the engine w/ a 5.4 with a 3.3 whipple or going w/ a teksid 324cid, ported 3 valve heads and a turbo. And I think I'll be able to get decent money out of the Procharger when it comes time to sell it. I talked to the dealer and he didnt know what all had been done to it except for what they can hear and see. The only thing that sucks about it is that its in Austin TX and that it doesnt have the shaker 500 audio system in it.

    Well if your replacing the motor that is one less thing to worry about. Take a good look at the car. If you don't know how to spot body work. I suggest taking someone who can. I don't get the A/C not coming on thing. Just be very cautious when it comes to a modified car unless you know the buyer personally.

    Well, found an 2005 Black Mustang GT w/ black leather, tinted windows, bullit style wheels, shaker1000 stereo, etc. Car is completely stock performance wise. Drove it and loved it. Should have the check from my bank either in the morning or monday, then picking it up!

    Hopefully I'll have a set of new style saleen wheels for it soon. Im getting ready to order a MAC 3inch catback.

    Dan, have you dyno tuned a fairly stock 05/06 yet? If so, what kind of power did you gain?
