So I am currently looking for a new car because I am working more (finally) and I am through sharing the family car (soccer-mom status over here). So for my first "official" car, I want something fast and sleek for the weekends (gas is still expensive and so is insurance for a "nice car"). I made a comparison and was hoping I can get some help from the forum community in finding something nice... and fast to drive.
Unbiased and you are asking in the Mustang forum? :)
Let's just say that Ford really has a good engine with the 4.6L in the Ford Mustang. I have owned 2 Mustangs while my Dad has owned 4. He owns an A/C Cobra, 69 Mustang Mach 1, and a 2005 Mustang GT limited edition. He loves the old school look with the old school sound and power, but with the modern twist of comfort and drivability.
Note: If you do alot of winter driving, I would not recommend a rear-wheel drive.
Check out a Bullitt Mustang. Drives better then a GT but not as harsh as a Shelby. Check around and do not pay any ADM. Many dealers will sell below MSRP. When you compare feature for feature you will find it is a much better value and a equally equiped GT. And the truly great part is you will not be passing yourself everywhere you go.
I'd say..base off of where you live,if you are in an area with little to no snow then by all means get an S197 GT.Put a cold air intake and a tuner on it and you can see som pretty good mileage considering its a V8.I've been able to get around 28-32 mpg with mine ,30% city 65% highway,5% playing around.
Goodluck with your choice.
