I'm not sure if this is in the correct thread, but I currently have '96 GT which I have had the transmission rebuilt w/ J-mod and had the entire car repainted Crystal White due to the paint peeling. The car is in excellent shape for it's age, and was a one owner car and meticulously maintained. She documented every service, had nearly all recommended maintenance done and even had the original invoice. (I have these documents( Here is my dilemma, the car had 164k miles on it in 2006 when the odometer went out. The car was driven another 4-5 years before it was parked in a garage with broken transmission. A good estimate would be 220k miles on the motor. The mod bug is biting and I would like to put some work into it, but since this car is essentially untouched (only aftermarket parts are cobra headlights, clear GT fogs, weld-in SLP Mufflers, CAI and Cobra Rear Sway bar.) Ideally, the car would be used simply as my fun DD and for Auto X. My question is, am I better off putting money into mine with the miles (knowing it's history) or selling it to dive into an Edge with 80-120k miles? (Assuming I can find one) At times, I really wish I had a 5 speed. I was considering selling mine as it currently stands (mostly stock, fresh paint & tranny) to look for an 02-04 2v 5spd GT, then work on mods. Plans for car: (Budget) Pacesetter Longtube Headers, Shorty X Pipe, w/ SLP 2s, 4.10 Gears, 2" Drop (full suspension setup), Staggered FR 500s. (Personally, I don't have the mechanic skills to comfortable complete a PI Swap, and I'm not sure how the motor, considering the miles, would take to major changes.) I had the J-Mod done when the new transmission was installed, and she shifts beautifully. I would consider, essentially the same build with a newer Edge, with the addition of a Short Throw Shifter. TL;DR I also realize, I'll hear several opinions...my main concern is with the mileage and age on the '96 (even though it is well-maintained) would I be better off with something newer?
