Default Need an answer quick.

I am looking at 4 different cars and need some help with selecting the best one.

2003 Steeda Q400 Mustang GT - 15K in mods pushing 500hp since it has been protuned and added to after the original purchase of the q400 variation.
2005 Mustang GT stock
2007 Shelby GT500
2011 Mustang 5.0

Which of these is the best choice for overall handling, performance, and value?

Thanks so much, I plan on buying one of these 4 vehicles tommarrow. 100% serious!

I'd pick the Shelby, if is low mileage, and all stock or close to stock. They are great cars and hold their value well.

GT500 no question. Responds to mods better.
