Default Just about a month left! Meanwhile......

Just as soon as I get some replacement rings, the stroker will be going in the '95. So, while that's out of commission, I'm going to need a new daily driver. I wanted an f150, just because it seems like everytime I need a truck I never have one. However, mustangs are just too damn fun. This is another "what about this car?!?!?" thread that even I get annoyed w.

I'm on my phone, no idea if that link works. Anyways, I've kept my eye on craigslist the past couple months. There are never any clean foxes that pop up around here. I like the LX body styling for the 88-89 cars, but this is pretty close. Just saw the ad today, what do you think? Price seems in the ballpark, obviously I'd offer less. Like $1800-$2000 me thinks. Only thing that would be difficult for me is that automatic transmission

Its been my experience with craigs list that you can count on getting the price down by about 5 or 6 hundred bucks. Talk the talk and walk the walk and when it all comes down to it tell the guy all you can come up with is 1,800 lol. I wouldn't mess around too long though cause at 2,400 you can bet someone will pick it up soon.

I definatly know what you mean about the clutch man, any time I get in an automatic my foot looks for the clutch at stop lights etc lol nothing like thinking your about to stall cause you missed the clutch lmao.....

You stated that they are 'hard to find'.
The seller knows this, thats why his price is sort of high.
