The truck is gone and my new vheicle arrived! :D

So I started getting leg problems getting into and out of my truck which was really starting to hurt. The truck was in the best condition it has ever been in besides it being new. I don't have any last pictures of it, my camera somehow ended up in the washing machine.

I traded with no cash involved and he was asking $9,500 for his car and he wanted my truck pretty bad. He has had nothing but trucks and this was his first car and wanted another truck. He also used to own a Ranger before as well.

I'm the 3rd owner of the car, the 1st owner bought it new in '97 and owned it until early this year, then the 2nd owner owned it for less than 6 months and now it's in my hands.

It is a 1997 Mustang GT, Aztec Gold which was only made in '97 and is an extrememly rare vehicle color. They made less than 150 of these exact cars.

Yes, the bottle isn't just for looks, it is fully functional. It's disconnect now because the bottle is empty and I've heard that it can't be connected while on the road. 150 shot too.

Paint the hood!

maybe some nice racing seats and for some reason some of the dash pieces look blue?

Congrats!

I miss my 03 gt but mustangs cant haul,tow,or go deer hunting. They are a fun weekend toy but you always have to have a truck. After I pay my truck off I plan on getting a 01-04 cobra....hopefully.

It's the gay flash. The hood is going to be painted gloss black to match the wheels instead of the crappy paint that's on it now.
