    Sadly my 98 GT listed in my sig was killed by a moron who t-boned me in an intersection. Nice huh, but no one was seriously hurt but I lost the stang. But thats why we have insurance and thats why I went and got a cobra.

    Found this Gem just 2 miles from my house. its a 2001 Black on Black Vert, it has 9,000 miles on it! Its brand new and not even broken in yet. Its all stock with the exception of a CAI.

    Anything I should watch for? or pay speacial attention to?

    Since it's not a 99 ... there's only one thing to be wary of, the mod bug for the 4V is strong. :D

    I can't remember anything that was 2001 specific. :( So buy it and enjoy.

    If you are concerned with mileage go with 4.10's . A friend of mine told me 3.73's for GTs and 4.10's for Cobras. 3.55's would be a total waste of money and time you will kick your self in the a** for getting it.

    Don't bother with 3.73's - you won't tell much of a difference. 4.10's for the street and 4.30's for the strip. Oh yeah and 4.56 for the drag racing speed demon maniac.

    4.10s huh? I do drive it every day about 30 miles or so. hmmm

    Something to think about.

    I will have to get it cleaned up over the weekend and post some pics.

    any other input on gears?

    In the end it all comes down to what you want. Like I said before 3.55 are a waste of money. If you are truely concerned about the miles a day you drive then get 3.73 or 3.90's. One question do you drive on highway or surface streets during your 30mile transit. I would lean towards 3.90s and above since your car is a Vert and that extra weight could use a higher gear.
