Not unless it is a Saleen. Ive seen MINT when I mean mint I mean show room condition still smells new not a single flaw anywhere with less than 10k go from 8-10k for the GT and Cobra models.

Thats perfect - I am thinking about a car as a fun once in a while driver, but would like to get most of my money back within 5 years - I have to think low mileage cars will generally do this but key is not to overpay. Again, thanks for the advice.

not when you can get good fox's for less than 5....sadly those cars aren't worth that much and when you buy a car it is a money pit that will never hold its value unless its a super rare 69 Shelby GT 500 or Boss 302 in perfect condition, i suggest find a car you like that's fun to drive and run it until it can go any further, have fun with the car

Yeah I swapped my hardtop for an SUV and now get 23 MPG, I'm looking good at the gas pump!

Uh I am not sure about the relevance of the last post to my question ...... So whatever!

Autotrader.com has a tool where you input the specs on your car, and get actual offers from local dealers, subject to in person inspection at the dealership. It works, as I just sold a relative's vehicle yesterday for the price quoted, minus almost nothing (within a few hundred $) for wear and tear that the dealer saw in person. Was way more than any offer I got from placing an ad in the classifieds, or what other dealers or CarMax offered. _________________________________________________ Here is the Autotrader.com tool https://tradein.autotrader.com/ATPages/TradeInMarketPlace.aspx?LNX=TIMATCHPBTN ___________________________________________________ Mike www.fromcartofinish.com

13K s a bit steep. 345 has it about right. Depends if it's a one or two owner car. Like I posted earlier I saw a 1990 stock, mint GT original owner, 48K miles go for 11K. It was up for sale only 2 days. In the Detroit area that is the going rate. If you get it for 9 - 10K it should hold its price well if it's a stock and un-molested vehicle.

RichIeb did you buy the car?

Nope! Way too much - he dropped the price $100 - he is not getting any play on it at all

Save you pennies and be patient...there's nice stock ones out there except they're getting harder to find. Good Luck...
