Hi,

Im moving over to Dallas from Ireland and I need lots + lots of advice.

Basicially, My wife is allowing me to buy a Mustang as soon as we arive,
but which should I buy?

Mustangs were never avaible in Europe, so I imported a 1987 GT t-top a few years ago which has served me well.

However, now that I'm "emigrating to the states" I want to get the best all-round Mustang that I can.

I would like to get the 1999-2004 shaped model,but something more than a GT.

So, which is better................SVT Cobra or a Saleen or a Rouch ect?

Whats the benefit of a Saleen over lets say a SVT Cobra?

I test drove a 2004 SVT Cobra Convertible last year, is their any Mustangs that can top that or do you have to be a millionaire to have a Saleen,Rouch ect?


Thanks,

paul.

If you are set on the 99-04, and that is not a bad thing, go for the '03 or '04 Cobra. They take very well to mods or you can enjoy the car as is until it is out of warranty, then mod it.

I strongly vote for an '03/'04 Cobra.

I would say in ANY platform, you cant lose with the Cobra. 93/SN95/03-04 If I were you, I would go for the 03/04 years for a Cobra. Those are very badass.

I'd guesstimate 25000-30000USD for a good one when it is all said and done. They'll continue to drop in price, but not drastically. The Cobra cars hold their value well. I see '93s going for 12K USD.

Take care

I'd say 03-04 Cobra, but you also can't go wrong with an '01 Cobra if the newer years are too much for you. Just whatever you do don't buy a 99 Cobra.
