    I just wanted to know how good of deals you all got on your stangs list price, mustang type, mods, condition, and miles. and pics if you want

    I bought my 96 Cobra for $8,200 it only had 52,354 miles on it, the guy before me put Eibach lowering springs on, side exhaust, Kenwood touch screen radio/DVD/TV, 2 10" kicker subs and 2 Kicker amps. washed every week, garage kept.

    I think i got a pretty good deal on my car how about you people out there...?

    I got mine about 4 months ago with 42k miles for $9500. It had all of the mods listed in my signature, including 4 new tires and a kick ass sound system. I think I made out pretty damn good if I do say so myself :banana:

    Bought my '96 at a dealership in June of '99. 32.000 miles and $17.500 +$1.500 for extended warranty. Later found out prior owner was someone that I knew (kind of) and he really takes good care of his cars. And it showed when I bought it.

    Thanks, it will be even better once I'm done with it. Problem is I have too many Mustangs right now and I need to unload something.

    Nah, I don't want to do that, they're all paid for - I just don't have a place to put them all. Plus insurance is cheap: racecar isn't insured, two are collectors so insurance is nothing, and streetcar isn't bad since I'm 26 and have a bunch of lines with my carrier.

    I bought my '96 GT in '99 from a guy I went to high school with. I wasn't interested in it at the time and had been trying to find a '95 ( I didn't know much about the 4.6 at the time) so I'd get the 5.0. He approached me and told me he really needed to sell the car. I told him I wasn't interested and his reply was..."I really need cash. How about $6500?" I gave him the cash that afternoon. The deal was too good to pass up. I'm pretty sure Blue book was more than double that at the time.
