yeah I have been searchin around a lot and it seems like it'd be awesome to get a Mach 1. I think it is kinda going to depend on how much money I have saved come next spring. I won't be able to wait any longer than that lol and I do want at least under 60k mileage.

I think you'd be happier with a 4v car as in Mach 1/Cobra.As the other guys have said try to find one that is stock.GL with your search.

If your worried about insurance. Dont get the mach 1, it more than a gt. Im 21, married, and only one speeding ticket and the insurance for me through progressive was roughly $50 more per month. That being said, if i knew then what i know now... i would have done research like these guys are telling you. I would not have bought my 02 gt that i royaly got screwed on. I would have save money up... and i would have got a mach 1 lol.

I've had my 04 for a year and a half paid 9k for with 58k miles my insurance is something like 170-190 a month through geico full coverage. It's a 2v but it can feel scary fast if your not accustomed for the power. She still puts a smile on my face when I open the garage

It does not always assure you got a wreck free vehicle. Carfaxs are only good for what is reported to them.

My car was a single owner when I got it and it was badly side swiped all down the drivers side front to back and it was never on the CARFAX. It never got reported the CARFAX. It only had reports for a few years on it's maintenance.
