    I have really considered that too. I love the look of a vette, how low and wide they are...

    But i don't think i could afford insurance on one or an 05 mustang.

    ....4k is very legit...5k is more reasonable as that is the base price for many kits but you can get tt kits for about 3500...if you dont believe me you can check out www.turbomustangs.com

    I saw your car and considered it... IT was clean and shiny and everything but there just wasn't quite enough engine for my liking... Yeah your engine was BLING BLING but i want something to work on not just to look at...

    When i saw your post on corral, all i could think was im glad this guy buying my car didn't find yours first.... lol

    Actually, I changed my mind. Buy a factory twin turbo sports car ... while keeping it FORD. I'd put it in the bank, let it triple, then get THE NOBLE M12. With the engine of a Taurus/Sable (Escape/Tribute), you can eat Porche's all day long .....

    You sure? I have never heard of the Noble's coming with a Mopar.... everyone I've seen had the Ford..... I've never seen one on the road, though.

    Drop a 03/04 Cobra Engine and a twin turbo. An easy 750+ HP rare and nice.

    Maybe I'm starting to show my age here but I'd invest it, pay off credit cards, or buy a house as was mentioned previously. If nothing else invest it and sit on it for a few years, all the while keeping your eye out for something REALLY cool. Then create something wicked.

    I think a factory five kit car with that 427 would be INSANE.

    If it was me, Id buy a nice 94/95 mustang gt/ cobra, or a clean fox body and instead of going all out on mods with it just yet, id throw the other 20k or so down on a 06 gt so id make it out damn good. You would only owe around 6k or so on a BRAND new car and a few years down the road if you wanted to sell it you would be truly banking on that car.

    Just my thoughts, but then i always like the thought of having a fun fast car and a good looking nice newer Daily driver
