June 22, 2011Used not becuase i was poor but because I love the 1970 Fastback body style and I didn`t find my car until 1997.
June 23, 2011Bought my `66 GT coupe used - I`m not that old! I got it in `92, sold it in `02, for $2100 more than I bought it for.
Bought my `88 LX 5.0 used in `96 - great deal! I got it for $3000 and sold it for just about the same in `02 or `03. Great car. Looked like hell though.
Bought the `94 Cobra new - wanted a `94 GT coupe, but they were so hard to get loaded but with cloth interior and manual transmission. Had to order one but then the cars were so popular my order got bumped. Found the `94 Cobra new on a local dealer back lot after calling every dealer in the phone book (barely any internet - no way to find cars on it then!). Got it for under sticker, somehow.
Bought the `05 new. Similar story to the `94. Wanted specific options and color - had to order - order got bumped to `06 so I canceled it. Internet search brought up the car we wanted... 100 miles away to the north. Drove up there and got a decent deal - a hair over sticker when most of these were going for much more because the new body style was so popular.
All great cars. Learned a lot working on them myself.
