^ I liked my '99 GT Vert but love driving my '05. Special ordered it before they were on the lots, and the only temptation so far to trade it in is the new 2011 5.0. But since it's all paid for and like new, I'll keep it a while longer.

If I had $135,000, I'd have a Ford GT. I'm sorry I thought you guys meant a carbon fiber mustang that is somewhat reasonably priced for a mustang. Not saying that eventually there won't be a mustang of that sort, eventually.

Well I've owned 4 mustangs & currently have 2. The S197 is by far the best all around mustang I have had, period. I've always wanted to own a terminator (that's still in the works), but again for fit, trim, ride, smoothness, & overall, the S197 rules! I also own a 2003 corvette which is quite a bit more expensive car than my S197 (29K vs. 49K) & my car with some minor suspension mods holds it's own very well against my vette, well done by Ford!

Really clean car, the pictures are nice too cause they take them in a white walled room with florescent lighting. But the car really does look that good up close too!

Sorry for threadjack.
I responded in another tread about this. Im looking to buy a mustang from texas direct auto and I was just wondering if you would share any tips with me about getting a good deal. I dont really understand the eBay auction and if they do trades. I saw the video on youtube about a guy who got ripped off with a bmw but I also saw someone had a good expierience with another sales person.

Heres the video ....

Heres one of the mustangs I was considering.

They dont really sell cars for $1k do they?!
