I think I'd like to get one. It's just I heard they're a pain in the a$$. But it really cleans up the look. Mine didn't come with one. I was looking at another that did, but it was in ROUGH shape.

Oh, and on the license plate...I have a Steelers plate on mine (that's no it in my profile pic though...that's the dealership pic with the Texas plate from where I bought the car in Amarillo). But I love my car and my team equally so I don't care if people think it "ruins" the look

If you're gonna redo the front bumper you might look into getting a whole new bumper cover that doesn't have the shape of the license plate in it at all. And you can upgrade to a Cobra, Saleen, or other style even.

Anyway congrats on the sweet ride! I must admit I'm partial to the Mustang convertible. It's friggin' beautiful...and you can fit short and tall girls in the back seat

Here's the big question, if you don't mind my asking...How much?
yeah i was getting there lol i didnt forget about you!! and the first time it took a few minutes to get and it just snaps right into a groove behind the backseat and a few snaps on the back trim. mine is stiff right now though cause it has been wrapped up since 2002 in the plastic never been used lol see this is why i bought the car! window sticker looks like it was just taken out of car fyi lol ok anyways yeah i would get one for yours too it dresses it up i think and cleans up the look. and i didnt even think about another bumper but a friend of mine runs his own detail/body shop and will patch the holes and paint it for like under $100 so you cant beat that and i dont mind the spot for them just cant have a plate there! and thanks for the congrats and yes it can hopefully cause im a tall fella (6'4")

Well I had an electrical problem and a cracked intake manifold not long after I bought the car. Between those 2 fixes and other stuff I had to buy like a battery, alternator, headlights, brake light, etc...I'm about $1,000 in, and my top is shrinking so there's another $900. So really I'll have paid like $10,000 so I'd say you got a good deal if it's as cherry as it looks.

But it is what it is, all said and done it can be a quick car with the right mods.
yeah i dont mind decent miles but anything near 100k i dont want lol no offense to anybody but they arent clean enough for me then. i live in ohio and i dont know how many cars are rusted underneath and etc etc and this one was sat in the garage in the winter and is pretty clean underneath. i will have to take some photos of the underbody when i put tires on it and do oil change in a few weeks! If you can find a cobra with 55k miles and that clean for $12k i would be interested

For those who don't know...the KB that is on top of this meatball GT04's motor is the exact very one that I was literally 48 hours away from picking up that weekend but was laid off 2 days before. Its all good though. GT04 is the man.
