Moving up in the Ford family...

So about 3 weeks ago I sold my 93 Ranger 4x4 and bought this 1997 Ford Mustang Cobra - 100% Stock - 55K. It was garage kept and babied all it's life. I decided it was time for a change considering I'm moving to Texas at the end of the month and the Ranger had no A/C.

Thanks guys! I bought the Ranger for $3,500 in 05' sold it for $3,000 in 09'...not too bad. I looked around quite awhile to find one this nice, it's hard to find a well kept not beat on Cobra for $8,000. I will of course miss the Ranger for obvious reasons.
