I envy your ability to turn a rat into that very clean car, with only the bigger ticket items of top, interior, and tires still being money very very well spent.  Well done.

I've had an interesting offer for the car. A 1999 Mustang Cobra SVT. Sorta tempted by it, I like that body style, it's a coupe, and the first year for the IRS. Might be easier to sell than a V6 'vert. Thoughts from the hive?

Your car is a better 'car' but the Cobra SVT is a better Mustang.

Edit: I had posted a caution about a used Cobra, but hey - if it has not been beat all to @#$% and you like it, GO FOR IT! They are great cars. I wanted one back in the day but got a GT instead, main thing is that is a high winder - probably been swapped out to 4.30 gears in back, many were ridden hard...but could be a great ride. Did not mean to rain on the parade. It will be the anti-car of a 6 cylinder convert.

Okay guys we can officialy close the books on this one. Car has been sold for the asking price of $6500 to a nice young lady with a history of Mustangs, so I know it will continue to be in good hands. That also means we managed to eek out a bit of a profit on this one, to the tune of a tad over $660 dollars, which is more than I had expected.

I did have a last ling with it before selling also took it for a trip down the Tail of the Dragon and had a blast. So stay tuned as I finally get started on the 'Vette in the upcoming weeks! smiley

Sounds like you made at least $2.50/hour on this one.  Nice!
