if you got 27k to drop, why are you driving a 99miata? i like the cars dont get me wrong but if i could get something for 30k i'd probably get something else thats fun, like an EVO, but not the X <-ew lol
You mean the taxes, title and other bs stuff you'd pay on any new car?

Anyone can get a loan, man. I enjoy modding the **** out of cars though so Im not about to go get a brand new one just to rip it apart. If you wouldn't want one, fine. They're not for everyone but I've owned a few and have had a lot of fun with them. I just think the blind mustang hate a lot of import guys have is kind of ridiculous.

I like Mustangs too, but I don't like the direction they're going. Body style, YES. Engine, NO. I just had this arguement with a friend of mine today. He wanted to take me along to go look at an 02? Cobra. He is a drag guy. I said, why would you want an independent rear car to drag? Not only that, it's a DOHC motor! You are a Pontiac guy, so get like an 02 T/A with an LS-1. 330 Hp stock, and a pushrod motor. If the new stang's were pushrod engines, I might not be a Miata guy...but then again, Mustang's are ******* EVERYWHERE. How many souped up Miata's do you see?

Well I use to build mustangs into race cars and I would only have bought one while I worked there because parts would have been cheep and easy to come by. But I had a 02 SS camaro at the time. The thing about the mustangs up untill this new body style im not sure but you would have to spend about 10k just in the chassis to get it up to spec with the camaro I had, and that came strait out of the mouth of my boss when worked there.

i'm not blind hating on mustangs. i really dont have a problem with them except they all sound exactly the same and most owners think they're car is the fastest thing on the planet, the douchebags mentioned earlier.

My point was if i was getting a newer car for 27-30k there are several other cars I'D consider before the mustang. IE: EVO, STI, Legacy Spec-b, IS250, just to name a few. but this is my opinion so if you don't like it, i dont really care

You've all seen the new Night Rider... right? The one where Kitt is a riced out GT that magically transforms into an F-150. I can't imagine the demographic that show is aimed at. The plots are too sophisticated for the 14 and under crowd, and the 15+ crowd is as tired of rice as we are. FORD has lost it's ******* mind.

cool motor, decent exterior, atrocious interior, garbage rear suspension. Its 2009, come the **** on with the 1920's era alxes. I mean ****, chain driven **** is cheaper than the ring and pinion, why not put that in the gt500?
