new or old?

need some advice; have a chance to buy a 1999 saleen mustang
for 25,000. it has only 1300 actual miles. do not know much about these cars, and was intent on buying a new gt. are the saleens that good,
or would i be better off with the new gt. looks wise i like both, just not familier with either one mechanicly or ride quality

Re: new or old?

The Saleen will be worth alot more maoney in the future. All Mustangs are pretty reliable.

Re: new or old?

test drive a new gt/stick. dare ya not to sign the papers :)

the saleen *might* be a investment, but with the improvements made in the new ones, and the shelby(likely boss too soon) the intrinsic value of the old ones might get diluted...7 yrs old vs brand spankin new for about the same $, I'd have a hard time...check w/insurance company to see if saleen depreciation could leave you hanging...low mileage is great, but wouldnt it be more fun to drive/enjoy it? Ive put over 5k on mine already, lovin every minute of it- ford really nailed it with the new model. investment- maybe saleen, if ya keep miles low, otherwise, mustang ever most folks agree, to me, it should be 'best car ever'. mine was 26k, about the same as our windstar was years second favorite 'drivers car' is my old 89 mark VII, but the mustang is 10000000% more fun for sure...actually I havent even drove the mark since last december- it sits at work in adjacent parking spot as 'door ding preventer'. you need to drive both cars and see what you think, decide from there- have fun :)

Confidence: that feeling you have just before you realize the mess you've gotten yourself into...
