Hey there, I just dropped my dimes on a '98 GT. The car is black with a black leather interior, 5 speed, Mach 460, 78k miles, 2-owners, and it has the 17" split-spoke wheels. I paid for it yesterday, but have yet to have it delivered--hopefully sometime next week. I found it on Autotrader in Iowa (it's also listed as a classified on ebay which I realized later). The dealer was asking $10k which I thought was a bit high even in the rust belt, so I eventually bargained them down to $8,147 including delivery to St. Paul, which they originally quoted $350 for, so I effectively got the car for $7,800. Aside from a K&N filter, and inserts on the back bumper, it's bone stock. I think I did pretty decent price-wise. It's my first Mustang, and my first manual.

I also need to track down a cigarette lighter. The car will remain stock (except maybe exhaust/tint/lowering...), as it is to be my daily driver (I have a Camaro for my summer toy). I have a couple questions: 1) I'm looking to possibly recover the front seats with NOS genuine FoMoCo leather--is it still available, or what are the authoritative sources for NOS parts for these cars? 2) What are the common problems on these cars? I already know about the plastic intake which mine appears to still have, but what else? I thought I remembered years ago reading about torque boxes, or at least being able to tell if the car had been driven hard by looking at them.
