    Worked all day on trying to make a deal on a new Mustang today ...
    (w/ Memorial Day $ale + incentives)

    deal wont pencil out due to the rapid depreciation of my Sixer :(

    I paid right at $21k (plus fees) including $5K down, rapidly paid down to a balance owed of $7k ...

    Guess what they offered for trade-in ?

    yep,,, just $7K !!!! :eek:

    55,000 miles + 33 months = 2/3 value lost :bs:

    no wrecks / no abuse / dozens of upgrades / por nada

    :stupid:

    You got 94,000 on your 06?

    Awesome!

    I have 95,500 on my 06.

    You should join our club as you are obviously a "Roamin' Pony"...

    not sure about the SGT. i have not really kept up with it this year. been busy with life, and the expectation that i will be keeping my car for at least 2 more years unless ford decides to give us those cubes. :D
