Sounds like the Mustang guy is getting a sweet deal!

But if you are happy, thats all that matters :uhoh:


either way I will be getting rid of my truck and I have always wanted a foxbody mustang and this one seems to be a pretty good car, I did notice the front light is out of adjustment and the hood dont line up, it has probably been wrecked but I will be looking it over and test driving it before I make any decisions, Im just tired of the truck it gets crappy gas mileage runs like shyt and is slow :read:

lol...i understand if you are tired of poor gas mileage and all. But I would at least go the smart way about it and sell your truck and then buy the mustang having some money left over :read: I don't know, if you want to go and trade, by all means do it. I've just never been one to throw away money...

a straight up trade for that thing would be a retarded move. your truck is probably worth at least twice what that car is worth if the truck is in average condition for a 98

gas mileage???um with a blown and modded car do you really expect better mileage than your truck? you will be gassing the hell out of it cuz it will be fast

reliabilty? no way in hell your truck can be less reliable than that thing. with good maintenance, your stock motor will be much less finicky than a totally custom motor. the blower alone will wear it out more. custom stuff doesnt last like stock, just the price to pay.

what motor do you have? 5.7? if so i dont see how its slow. granted its in a truck, but for a truck the vortec motors can move.

you should give this alot of thought. not only is that car a worse daily driver than your truck, your getting screwed in a straight trade imo

its got a 305, I dunno I just want somethin different I thought I would like the truck but I dont like it at all it is a nice truck and all but Im just not into the 4x4 stuff like I use to be I would rather be low to the ground and have modded motor the guy is asking 9 for the car it is suppose to run high 9s in the 1/4 mile but I am not going to make any quick decisions, but if I dont end up getting this car I will either get a k5 or somethin I dunno yet :read:

why get a K5 when you just said your not into the whole 4x4 thing???

ive been 17 and been totally unsure what i wanted to do with my truck, i had a 94 K2500 at the time.

you're on the right track about not making any quick decisions. that is always the best policy, well maybe not in combat but here it is lol.

i get what you mean about the 305 thing. i had a TBI truck so i know what slow is damnit. even tho i still miss that truck and wish i still had it.

honestly, 9000 dollars for an 89 mustang??? if its not in pristine condition, no way its worth anything close to it. my buddy sold his 91 stang 3 years ago for 3 grand. and it was in pretty decent shape. granted it wasnt blown, but it had every bolt on there was. your truck is probably worth 8-9 grand if you cleaned it up real nice and fixed minor things, and put stock tails on. while you are getting your truck ready for sale and while waiting for a buyer, you will have time to decide what you really want. if you want a stang, go for it, but honestly i would get one thats more practical. even a stock 5.0 with some flows hauls ass compared to a pickup.

You should sell your rig first...you will get raped big time if you trade outright..:read:

after thinking about it I will more then likely just put the for sale sign back on my truck put the bodylift on and have it buffed again and up the price a little bit, let me rephrase the not into 4x4 part I mean Im not into the poser 4x4s I love lifted trucks but I could never abuse my truck offroad so I might just sell it and buy a cheap k5 or maybe a samauri but I still gotta sell the truck first, I am glad I posted this on here first cuz I really dont know what the cars are worth I know alot about trucks and stuff but havent really checked out cars thanks for the replys :head:

1: nice stang, need to regap the body panels no big deal, the only reason to buy that car would be for motor.

2: its a six speed thast sooo hott

3:no way will you get enough traction for 9s

4: i would def have already sold my shit, or traded, he has way more in that car than you do in the truck:read:

uhhh, no way that will ever runs 9s. The Hennesy motorsports 1000 RWHP viper runs 9s...

your definately wrong there, the reason that viper is probably only running 9s is because of traction, its the most important part of drag racing:read:

there are plenty of novas/chevelles/old mustangs that are running 9s on teh street, most of them are back-halved. That setup im sure could put you there, traction is the issue :head:
