Well, after two months of looking I finally got my next Stang yesterday. It's an '88 GT, with T-5 and only 61,000 original miles. I jumped on it for mainly the low mileage and custom blue paint job. I'll try to get some pics up soon!

Speedy, after your months of searching how many actual cars did you go look at? I looked at 6 before I bought my first Mustang. Then I looked at 4 or 5 before I bought what I have now. Did you find any false advertising? You know what I mean! People describe their cars like the way Wes' potential SVO does look, and when you get there it's really next to parts car condition. I use to really hate this b.s. part of looking at used cars man!!

I sure know what you're talking about. I looked at about 10 cars and very few (besides the one I actually bought) were in the condition that they were advertised. The worst case was this 91 GT I looked at. The owner told me it was in "excellent" condition, I got there and it had been sitting outside for 2+ years and was a piece of *crap* to put it mildly. It had moss growing everywhere (in and out), cracked bumpers, extremely faded paint, and to top it off, a humidifier inside of it. All I can say is I am sure glad I'm done looking.

This story telling issue could be a topic in itself. I'm glad you're all set! It is still well worth it to take your time, and not buy the first car you see.

Well you're one of the lucky ones! Anyway, picked up my Stang today, and I love it! Flowmasters are going on this week, then who knows what's next. I haven't missed any shifts yet, but that 2nd to 3rd shift is sure something to get used to.

Here is a US price, Western NY...I bought my 1989GT for $5100. It was pretty mint, 32,000 actual miles..after seeing prices around I cant believe I actually was worried about the price being high. Sure I need some minor paint work, but the interior is perfect, as is the engine and drivetrain, which means the most to me. COBRA

I got my 88 GT with mint paint/interior/mechanical and 61,000 miles for $4300. I saw an 89 LX hatch for 5200 in my area.

I paid $4700 for my 90 LX 5 speed hatchback. It had 116k, 3.55's, big JBA headers, h-pipe, Vortec mufflers, and all the other features I wanted. I paid top buck I think according to the mileage. The deciding factor was the condition. It is a rust free car from Arizona that still carrys 90% of it's original paint. I'm convinced after owning it for about a year that it was never hit. Some things that bring value aren't found in the auto pricing books.
