It's funny but true... the 03-04 Cobra will alway be an iconic car... but being as out dated as it is... it really reduces its appeal for me.
Mustang SOLD!... I'm just here for the entertainment.

Well hell, I guess I'll go out on a limb. I vote Termi. I love my new edge, and you can get a nice termi and not go broke or lose you're *** doing so. Plus I hate all the electronic crap they put in new cars. I like the basic interior and rugged feel of the new edge, it feels more like a real muscle car. Take the money you'd spend on a boss, put half that into a termi, and run circles around the new boss. Unless you pull in a 6 digit salary a year, I say don't go for the boss just yet. Better yet, go get the real deal, well maybe a clone, but you know you want this:


If it's just a toy and not going to be a DD, IMO get something truly old school (60's maybe early 70's). It's a TRUE muscle car, and it will only appreciate in value, provided you don't do something stupid to it (wrap it around a tree). Plus insurance is only a few hundred bucks a year.

New cars mean headaches.. constant recalls.. bugs that will need to be fixed..

I vote termi, it's a proven platform.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing
