Its used one. I was surfing craigslist and came across an ad from the dealer so i was like well ive been wanting to get another car and i can afford it, so i called up and asked about it. Went and filled out all the paper work (guess they were really skeptical about a 23yr old trying to get this car lol) Now I just gotta sit and wait on the bank to finance it. They got her priced at around 27,000 with only 32,000 miles on her. Im not sure what was up with her though as they did have some body work on the front drivers side fender and bumper. When i looked at the car it didnt seem like anything was wrong. We test drove it and it ran fine. ( seriously gonna have to try and not spin tires if i do get it lol. not use to that kinda acceleration.)

Man, thats fairly cheap. Insurance is probably gonna be rough though.
Its got a clean title (not salvaged)?

shes got the typical 5.4l v8 supercharged. This is gonna be my "weekend/recreational" car. That way insurance doesnt kill me lol. I still got my sixxer and shes running fine.

ya clean title. I think it may have been a repo or something. Like i said they did tell me about some minor damage to the front but when i saw the car I didnt notice anything. At first the guy was being a douche when i went out to look at it, like he thought i was joking around

^ Just what I was thinking.

I hope it all works out for the best and you drive that beauty right out of the lot. Maybe the damage was just a little fender bender. Good luck to you!

Looks nice and the price seems very reasonable too! If you have't already, request a carfax or autocheck to verify everything checks out to your satisfaction, which also adds a little peace of mind. ;-)
Good luck!
