Default Purchasing GT

Wuz good guys Iam planning on buying a 1999-2004 GT next summer. Iam 19 and currently I own a 3rdGen Firebird (1987). Im new to Ford, but always thought the Mustang was there greatest car. I hopefully will find a GT 4.6 next year with a manual trans, but the most ive seen on autotrader in my area are v6 automatics. Is their any suggestions or tips you guys have to give about the car or purchasing the car?

+1 on the internet shopping. I was using car trader or something and got a better deal than I could locally.

Make sure it is a 99-04 though, if you are interested in performance stick with these as they have the PI motor.

If you can, get a 01 1/2+ car with the 3650. It might not be the best trans in the world but its much better than the T-45

Thx u guys I really appreciate the tips. I live in Detroit so theirs alot of GTs available but most ive seen were V6 and I really dnt plan on having a V6. Wuz the 3650 trans only available in the 2001, bcuz if the T-45 is bad ill just stick with that year (2001)

Its any gt after 2001.5, so 2002+ is also good.
