I bought mine:
45K miles
Dealer asked for $14,700, I talked him down to $13,350.
Only thing on it was Sportline springs, K&N drop in, and Magnaflow exhaust (came off in a week for SLP LM1s.)

Ive owned a GT before, and like someone said previously, it IS a completely different animal.

Hell, mine might be for sale is a little while lol. Actually looking into GTO's.

Like I said I've owned 2 mustangs now of the same body style, so I think a change in scenery may be in order. Can't deny the power per dollar ratio of the LS motors.

We got one of those things(06GTO) back in 2009 with 40,000miles for $17,999 interior,power,room even traveling was amazing in that thing it was the wifes. And since then til this day in the same area for that mileage and higher the prices are actually going up on those things. Go test drive one im willing to bet you would love it. Even though it has the "cobalt on roids" look to it.

Gto is an awsomcar and has he LS pushrod power, but in the appearance department its horrible. Looks like a grand prix and has no sports car or muscle car look to it all just to ain old blah for my taste.

I love GTO's for the power and sound but i agree it looks more like a family car than a muscle car.

I drove an 06 and it was an OK experiance only because i didn't really DRIVE it. Car salesman was with me so I didn't want to get too crazy with it. They ride so nice though.

I'm looking to drive an 04 and see the difference.

I don't mind the looks of the GTO's...the power/sleeper look of them makes up for it



OP I have 87K on my car now btw.

Good point there lol.

I also kind of concerned about gas on the mach though. 91 octane is only like 18 cents more a gallon or something?
Since i drive a six right now im used to getting around 18 mpg in stop and go traffic in orlando i wonder how much that will change with a mach
