    My '05 GT is on order. ($100 down and $500 over invoice). But I'm scared as hell of the payments. There's a beautiful, beautiful low mileage '97 Cobra convertable available around here for $14,000. About half the new car investment. And it probably won't depreciate as fast. Probably.

    What do you think?

    Wow, I think I would go for the Cobra and wait for the S197 S/E's to come out. Tough choices ahead.

    If you can't afford the 2005 then get the other car. The 2005 rocks though ... no comparison.

    Thanks, I appreciate the input. But now, tell me, is a convertable a good idea? Are they noticably heavier to drive or more rattle prone than the GTs?
