    so i was going to get a GTO but ive since realized that its alil to expensive, and i was going to get a Trans AM untill i drove and realized what crap box of an interior it had and ontop of that i play guitar in a band and theres no way i would get any of my gear into a Fbody. so i want a 2 door V8 RWD car, thus leaving me with the mustang. since it has a normal trunk and the back seats fold down it will work for function (i can get 2 guitars and my amphead in the trunk) so im just gonna have to deal with the ford logo, and now im a hypocrite, but whatever :o



    anyways to my question, what kinda of things should i look out for in shopping for a 99-04 Mustang GT 5 speed.

    any years better then others?

    major problems?

    also how common are leather seats? casue i dont want leather.


    tell me everything you can

    thanx :x:

    99-04, no major differences other than in late 01 the went to a different tranny t-45 to a t-3650. t-45 shifts smoother but the t-3650 takes more abuse. its hard to find a later gt without leather(02-04).

    ok for real people.. i WANT a GTO that is the car i want. BUT, the 04s are still to much and the gas tank is mounted between the rear seats and trunk which is good for wieght distribution bad for folding the rear seats down for guitar gear.

    I'm shopping for one as well..

    I'm looking for an 01 but I want to spend like 10k on the car and they are still pricey..

    01s have nicer wheels, bigger hood scoop, bigger side scoops, blacked out headlights, nicer design stereo (although the CD changer is a POS)..
    I heard the tranny differences..
    the 99-00 are a fucking pain to get into reverse sometimes... 01s shift nicer.. or maybe its the other way around
    The problem is finding a clean one, if you have $ for an 02-04 its a lot easier but for a used 99-01 car, they all had like 4 owners and been raced or beaten to shit.

    If you are looking for a car that can haul stuff around even occasionally a pony car shouldn't be at the top of your list :dunno::wiggle:
