    First time in over a year that I drove my 2000 Ford Mustang GT

    i washed and waxed her and put about another 50 miles on her. she now has a little over 11,000 miles. not bad for 21 year old car.

    Do do you drive it so infrequently? That's literally probably the lowest mileage 2000 Mustang on the planet. I thought I was doing pretty good with my 3rd gen 4Runner just hitting 100k a week ago

    They made about 100 billion of them so you shouldn't feel that bad...

    How’s the underbody? I looked at a few around here as a summer beater but even the cleaner lower mile ones had rough subframes, like some I wouldn’t have felt safe driving without reinforcement.

    Go drive it and enjoy it. While it's an exceptionally nice example, those cars are plentiful. Also, putting that few miles on a vehicle brings with it it's own set of potential mechanical issues for the car itself.

    Hard to find a clean Mustang more than 10 years old, especially this side of the Mason Dixon... thatís the only reason I bought my Ď89, almost clear of rust underneath even with 98k on the clock... with the dent on the door and only being a 4-banger it was still worth my $500. Iím leaning heavily toward LS swap at this point.

    An 89 Ford Mustang?

    I'd be heavily leaning towards a vehicle recycling facility.

    Eh, it's not the prettiest vehicle, but it's easy as shit to work on and there are so many dirt cheap parts out there to make it entirely whatever you want it to be. And I put a 340 lph pump in her so now I'm committed... or rather I should be committed.

    I love mine. It's a '99 Limited 4x4 that I bought from the original owner coming up on two years ago. Had 83k miles at the time.

    i loved my 93 LX 5.0. I wish I still had it. I would definitely buy another one. i want to shoehorn a coyote 5.0 into one with a 6 speed manual. That would be tits.

    Yeah like oh no acid rain? To them it’s an important thing to do to treat a car right I guess. The wife’s ‘10 civic has 188k miles on it now and you get under that thing and it is clean as fuck. We let Honda do their undercoating thing as the only dealer option when she bought it new and it has been remarkable. Still have the original exhaust on the thing too. And it has driven in PLENTY of snow. Number one thing is wash the damn thing a few times in the winter... especially after any big snow storms that you drove in.

    Michigan roads destroy unibodies. If you drive it a couple winters you basically start the time clock.

    You buy and look at enough cars up here you can tell pretty easy who’s full of shit or not when they say that.

    looks great. I've been trying to buy an 03 Cobra for a week and this jerkoff dealer is giving me the runaround it seems. Going to bail on the deal tomorrow if he can't get his shit together.

    aka, he's found a buyer that's willing to pay more and wants you to bail.

    possibly, but he's also just a jackass moron that seemingly has no idea what he's doing, yet has multiple $100k cars for sale at his business including a $1.2 million Ford GT. I'm done with him, though...it's not like it's the only one out there. Now I hope I don't have to fight Paypal to get my deposit back.

    Yeah I have committed myself to not buying another fun toy or project car until mu 68 is done.


    I will probably end up breaking that commitment.
