Soo I guess right place right time kinda thing, but I didnt pay over 30k for it ill tell ya that.Checked CARFAX and checked service records on it before I did the deal and everything checked out A-ok .... and its got heated leather seats, microsoft sync, all the nice creature comforts and bells and wistles. Its a 6 speed and its fast as hell! Turn traction control off and its a fun ride rippin through all 6 gears!

    I was a long time Ford guy. Had many of them, including a couple of Mustangs. Ford is the one domestic I would still consider now and the new Mustangs are badass so enjoy.

    BTW, join up over at stangnet. Over 170K members and TONS of info there.

    Not a Fan at all. However, its your trade in and your smile that matters.

    I've driven a few mustangs from friends and its not my cup of tea.

    I couldn't imagine trading in my truck for a Mustang. Ford is coming around now and the styling has been very nice.

    I do like the RAPTOR! I'd consider one of those.
