You're not being patient because you're yet to even sit your self down and write out exactly what you want.

I was looking for another thread where I thought I commented, but I was unable to find it.

You need to decide what your REAL price range is, and then look around and find the lowest mileage car you can for that price range.

You you keep finding these high mileage cars instead of looking and being patient and finding what you really want. You can't come on here and expect us to convince you into convincing yourself you really want the car, or else it'll just be another bought and then sold tally on your already excessive count.

Hell, if I was not attached to my car I'd sell it to you for 7,000 so you'd quit all this nonsense. (99GT 86K) Personally, I think you ought to be able to find a '99-'03 right now with 40-60K miles for around 7,000 dollars. The New Edge Mustangs are already 2 generations behind, and approaching 7-10 years old depending on model year.

Now should be the time to gobble them up, not make yourself bend over backwards to 'accept' something you think you like.

If it has 373 and the speedo has not been adjusted the speedo will read faster. If you are driving 55 it may read a little over 60, therefore the odometer thinks you are covering more miles than you are, so the odometer will read higher as well.

Oh yeah, car is okay, I would personally save for a lower mileage stang. Seems like the car is up your alley in looks though, so maybe talk him down a little and get it if you want it.

There is some great light being shed to you son. Unless you MUST have a MUSTANG now.... just wait. I know that MD is expensive and deals on cars around some parts are far and few in between. Haste makes waste. Don't jump on the first thing that bites. Why settle for less when it seems like at least to me that you want maxium for your buck. So shop around. The mid-west in general is a great place for good stangs righ up your alley if your willing to drive or pay for them being driven out to you. IMO i think your kinda selling yourself short.

Dirty engines just make me worry. It could mean nothing.

i would wait, and see what else when you look closely at the pics you can see all the small flaws, and there is a buch, the bumper is road rashed up, the paint is cracking the rims are shot, the interior is worn, kinda a high price for that many miles. All those flaws may be small, but a bunch of small flaws add up quick when you wanna start fixing everything to make the car pristine like most of us want our cars to be. I just bought my 89 fox, completely stock with 49543 miles on it for only 3 grand, but i waited and waited until it popped up, which i think you should do, there will be somebody out there in a mid life crisis that will need cash quick and will part with that model of mustang for cheap if you just wait and be patient, i see them all the time
