    all right, heres my problem. i now have 2 mustangs, one a real nice 1992 mustang 5.0 hatch that i've had since new, and i love it. but now i also have a 2003 GT, and im not sure i can have both forever like i want too. i just got rid of a 2001 camaro SS for this new stang, which i love, but i just dont know wheither or not to keep my 5.0. can you guys help me pick which to do? get rid of it or keep it? it was my first sports car and i love it. any and all ideas wanted, thanks :flag:
    P.S. im having trouble putting a pic here, but i think you guys know what im talking about, its bright red too.

    i'd keep the 92. nothin like being the original owner of a car. especially as it gets older.

    If I bought a 5.0 new, the only thing that would make me get rid of it would be an accident, theft, or financial problems. Other than that, I wouldn't sell it.

    fox, that is kinda true, but a little run in with a certain eagle talon(you know who you are!) sent that car to its early grave. good news is i put him in the hospital, while i was ok. but the car was totaled

    Since your the original owner I'd keep it...probably not many original owners of foxes, and in 5 years even less. If you sell the 03 gt you could get a cheaper car for daily driving or whatever. If money isn't an issue keep em both.

    yeah, its not really the money, just wondering if its time to give it up. a big fear of mine is some moron kid is gonna get it and rice it up, ah the next generation(not saying all younger kids that get stangs are ricers, just a fear i have, most are pretty cool)

    i guess now that i think of it, not to many mustangs like mine(or ours cause it looks like everyone in here has one like it) are on the road in a good condition. so maybe someday it will be a collectable? that would be cool. its not all that fast, last 1/4 run i got a 13.68, not bad, but not great. i dont really plan on moding it to much more either. so i guess i should keep it.

    I am leaving my mustang in my dads name for that reason. He sold it to me but never transferred anything to my name. Still a one owner car. Keep it.
