35k for a nice new Z? Please and thank you. I'll be looking near almost 50k. I believe the base model SS starts at 32 or something to that affect so the Z will most likely start at near 40.

I couldn't buy a car just to let it sit, i've got to be driving. My ranger (170k) is my winter beater, and my summer gasser (for school) is an SS cobalt(about 25K in a year). my dad used to have a mustang that was gonna be a "collector" car, untill it hit 33k miles in a year.

I would bet money it wont. The cars these days are way too complicated. I just dont see them being restored like the old ones.

i ordered mine from the dealer new. just like burger king. i had it my way.

it was either gonna be a fusion or my ranger. i almost went with the fusion since the last blue i remembered ford offering was that flat blue (darker grabber). not vista or sonic but the other one that was from the mid y2ks. but i priced out both and my truck is in the canadian 08 brochure. i was torn about the colour but when i saw the brochure and the sales guy said it looks just like that. i went with it and am glad i did.

all new cars are all plastic, that car will fall apart sitting for 50 years in a garage. it may be the only one left in existence in 50 years, but no one will want it.

It wouldn't need restored if it is sitting in my climate controlled garage being taken care off.


It;s not really up for discussion. It's happening. Period. I am going to put myself in massive amounts of debt for 4-5 years so I can have something that I will love and enjoy for the rest of my life. People have done stupider things. Like the idiots who made $70-80k a year back in early 2000s and the lenders convinced them they could afford a $400k house which they promptly lost when that super low adjustable mortgage rate super adjusted itself to like 5-9%.

I have always liked the Ranger, and when I was 21 (in 1998) my birthday gift was $3000 cash to be used for my 1st car purchase or whatever. My dad and I went to a Ford dealership, and I really liked a one year old single cab white Ranger XLT automatic with under $11000 miles. I bought it, and used part of the money for a down payment and part of the money for a tonneau cover and spray-on bedliner.
