Default Bye Bye convertible!!!

Hey guys, well my parents were talking and I'm most likely going to sell the stang for what I can get out of it right now and use that money to put it towards a 5.0 that I found today at this shop http://www.coloradomustang.com/ . Dan (the owner of the store) just got it in and has yet to put it on the site but he's going to hang on to it until I can get a tiny loan and get my car sold. It's got 86,000 original miles, brand new candy apple red paint job, completely unmolested, 1992 lx 5.0, moonroof, very nice grey and black interior, AOD, and it's just faster than mine, I think that it's got some kind of gears in it but I'm not really sure, it felt really quick. So I might be getting a new 5.0!!! WOOHOO!!! Oh and he wants 5,000.00 for it and I'm expecting to get about 2000 for mine as it sits.

Why not get/look for a 5-speed?

I have been for the past 6 months and my car's about done for, every 5 spd. that I have looked at is trashed, like this one http://www.coloradomustang.com/89BLUEFOX.html , we went and looked at it and started it up, the interior is ruff, the engine has seen it's better days, body lines aren't even, paint has orange peel and is starting to peel around the hatch, nice looking on the exterior though. The one that I'm looking at is at a great price and I could really care less if it's a 5 spd. or not. Like I said it's got 86,000 miles and it's VERY VERY nice at a great price.
