probably going to end up switching back to muscle and buying a new mustang. But i cant decide which one to get. the V6 or the V8. I need something practical but i also want power. and the new V6's are pretty strong... Opinions please,

i built a mustang last night, GT Premium with options ended up being $41k or so... i can't justify spending that much right now...

Yeah the new ones are quite high. 41K will get a nice C6 vette. For that amount my k series is just fine for now.

At 1600 a month, I would be shopping the used market without financing. A $300-400 car note a month is ~1/4 of your income. Way too much IMO.

Buy a fox (or 95 96 with 5.0) with a decent motor thats been rebuilt right. Add supercharger. Enjoy.

Yea but most likely he's not swamped with bills like older people are. 1/4 of his income a month would be decent then.

If you're looking to spend ~$400 a month I'd recommend looking in the used car department for a good deal.

For me, bills or no bills, 1/4 monthly income on a car is way too much. I agree about shopping used, though.

That 1/4 of his income will be more when he tries to insure this car at 18. Do you bring home 1600 a month or is that gross? Ill be the adult here and say that you should look at priorities.

If you buy a new v6, I feel like after a while you are going to wish you bought the v8. An 03 -04 cobra can be had for around 18,000 but Insurance on any v8 sports car will be ridiculous... unless you put your parents as PRIMARY driver and you as SECONDARY/part time driver. If you are dead set on a mustang even the newer 05-07 models are fairly cheap now. Hope this helps!

Trying to finance a $30k+ car at 18, on $1,600 a month income is just begging for a financial chokehold / repo.

Keep your Accord, and be responsible. Insurance on a Mustang for an 18yr old will be outrageous.

Unless he's got more credit history than just that accord, and a credit score over 720, the bank most likely won't even approve him for more than $25k. But even at that, he's going to need to keep the financed amount under $22-25k to keep his note the same.


Coming from a car salesman, finish paying off the accord. By that time you may be making more money to budget a larger note more comfortably. Your credit will gradually build until the loan is satisfied. At which point you can trade in the accord for w/e want and have a large down payment, (hondas hold their value and w/e you get for it will be money down). And you'll probably keep the same note on a more expensive car, 30k give or take.

Get a halfway ragged out sn95 off craigslist for cheap. Put dem Flomasser's on der, and rag it out the rest of the way. Holler a some hot poon, get rejected, holler at some skanky bitches in some buckle jeans they found at goodwill, then get some ointment for that new rash. Go pick on some ricers, get beat, realize it sucks, and buy something else LOL. Problem Solved.
