Looking at a Mustang..

So i am looking for a Mustang as you can see.. and these are what i am looking for:


Year: 00 - 07
Transmission: Manual
Engine: V-8
Miles: <80K
Price: <15K


So what is the best styles of mustangs too look for in that range? What years were better, which created best hp, which are easiest and cheapest to mod.

Just looking for some ideas and some thoughts on what people think i can get for the price of 15000 or less.

Oh and i love this one:

but cant afford it

i think those would be a fun investment are actually designed for racing and going fast.

I think it'd be fun 'stock' the way it is. The engines were rebuilt by Roush and they push 350hp from what I've read. But a s/c would be amazing.

The Bondurant Driving School used them for drifting classes a while back. Now they're just getting driven around going from owner to owner.
