    Depending on the condition i would say get it. That seems to be a pretty good price. I paid more for my 95 and it had 89k

    yeah its seems like a great price. is 77k too many miles for a domestic? i plan on taking it to my mechanic right away and seeing waht needs replacing and all. other than that, it looks healthy.

    77k isnt many miles considering it is a 95. Most are close to/over 100k id say

    Sounds like a great price. That is pretty low miles for a 95. My 95 has 77k on the clock and I dont's drive if very much. I say get it. :banana:

  13. no bad price...

    kkb.com

    check the kelly blue book value...

    I bought a 1994 GT convertable with 69,000 miles... for $3,000

    in great shape too...

    thats all it was worth... 3 grand... so before you buy a car check the value... if it isn't priced at the value you are spending too much

    awesome, thanks guys. would it be bad idea to bring up the quoted price from edmunds/nada/kbb to the dealer, or should i just try to work them down without mentioning it..?

    I told the guy at the dealership how much his car was worth according to edmunds, I used (private party value) and we came up with a reasonable 4k closing cost. Remember, they get most of these cars dirt cheap at auction. Make sure you get a warranty though just in case stuff like the ac or whatnot doesn't work.
     
  17. the guy probably bought it for 2 grand at an auction... IF THAT!

    just make sure that you don't spend over the value...

    cars are BY FAR the worst investments

    yeah, they are the worst investments, but inturn dealers make insade profit off of them.

    i noticed that alot of cobras and gt's are priced at like 11-15k, when the value of the car is around 6-9k. how do you negotiate such a steep price difference? do you tell the person/dealer they are dumbasses for trying to sell the car that high, or do you bring up a value from edmunds, etc?
     
  19. you

    A. make an offer @ blue book value
    B. negotiate the price as close to value
    C. tell them that they suck at life and don't buy the car

    I was lookin for a car from Junior year hike school til I graduated... roughly 2 years... I passed up so many BEAUTIFUL cars... regardless of the condition... a car is only worth what an insurance company will rate it at (www.kbb.com) AND/OR what a person will pay... and people are dumb and will pay alot extra so used car dealers thrive and make big bucks (remember 98% of people are more or less retarded)

    just be carefull what you buy...

    when you look at a car that has a power adder or and/or lots of modifications... that raises a red flag... did the owner beat the car? why is he selling it? Is the car's death coming soon? etc etc etc...
