Traded in the tremor for a 2005...

Thats right, the tremor is gone. After 33,000 miles of pinging knocking, oil leaks, poor acceleration, damaging the paint from trails and being sprayed, its gone. I couldnt take it anymore. So I got a killer deal on a 2005 Mustang, i know, its not a v-8, but the 4.0 SOHC V-6 is plenty, great acceleration and great gas mileage. Its screaming yellow color. Sticker price is 20,300, I paid $17,000 total with the X-plan and saved another $2,000 just by negotiating and threatning to walk out. Will have pics whenever it stops raining. I was sad to see the ranger go, but i wasnt happy with it.

I didnt plan to buy a stang, i was however lookin for a 4.0 Ranger, but that was a failure. BUT, I had an 05 mustang as a rental for two days, and fell in love, and had so much fun in it, that I knew I had to have one. Low and behold, now I got one. Hehe

BLACK OR RED?
WTF?!?! some of the best stangs were NOT those colors ar all, look at the Boss 302, the Mach1 (original) Bullitt... do I needa go on?

I wanna see a new stang in Grabber blue with a Mach1 kit for it, now talk about badass.

Good choice on the color Jon

im just talking about all the old stangs of that body style (70's) 90% were black or red. when the car has race stripes i do like it in other colors but this is just my opinion
