That is old! And I have you beat by 4 years. I have done my part(and continue too) expand the econmy.I have owned dozens of muscle cars since 1969. Lord that sounds OLD. I don't keep track of the money I spend on them. It's just part of the fun and the love for it. You love your dog the same way and don't complain about how much you spend on them. And your wife........ never mind. LOL.
Well hell its a Mach 1, very unique(and the new ones without the shaker hood.......), not many made. It is a real classic, if I was lucky enough to have one.... Its not always about how fast it is IMHO.I bought my Mach 1 in 2016 for about 15 grand. Ive spent that same amount in modding the car. It's a monster coming down the road with its 430 gears and nearly double its original power... and I'll still get dog walked by any modern pony car with moderate mods.
I could've taken that same 30k dollars and bought an srt8, ss Camaro, or coyote. Maybe ended up faster ride but my car is my style and 10x cooler.
I wanted this car when i saw them new in 2003. I don't see the money or the fact that it's not the fastest car on the street when i walk past it in the garage, where it stays most of the time. Its what i wanted, put together by me, the way i want. I'll never get rid of it. Might change things here and there for fun or function.
Complete financial loss but no regrets.
Hope no one bought their mustangs for future gains. The only way is to enjoy them no matter what type of mustang one has. Spend your money to enjoy it, creating a bond with it. Its also a sense of purpose to living for yourself. Go out there, and it enjoy the damn thing. LOL!
