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.

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.

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.

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!

You can always buy the newest and fastest. But other than the money what stake do you have in it? My 2000 will be modded to my wants and needs. It will be mine and not exactly like anyone else's. That's the fun.

I'll have to go with Matt on this. You cannot form a bond with your machine, it's impossible. You can form an attachment to it, but the machine doesn't care who's behind the wheel nor who's driveway it's parked. In fact, your machine doesn't care - at all.

My Foxbody is actually in my will.

no, I’m not being buried in it, but what to do with it if something happens to me. Keep in mind, that car was my first car I ever bought and what I drove in HS. Been in the family 23 years and counting...


therefore I don’t really care how much money I spend on it.

I say the same about my 86. I should probably make the arrangements ahead of time. :chin

It's also the reason why I keep my A/C. :oops:
Do you think the AC will help after burial? I know people that change that destination to a better climate. :stir:
