Well Rob good luck with what ever you decide what color would you get my 2 favs are grabber blue and sunset gold. Also you just put a crap load of money into your car and its almost paid off you might want to consider that.
I am not really worried, they prob would try for the best deal since they want to buy my 06 so they can sell it used and move new inventory asap. The less they have to pay while it sits on the lot.
Hell they emailed my buddy a few months back saying they were in the market to buy used stangs because a high demand.. The letter he got said they would give him $17,500 i think for it, and it did NOT require him to buy any of their vehicles..
Turns out he went up there, got the check and left and bought a 01 SVT Lightning privately.. So you just never know.
As for me putting money into my car, i know.. Well the rims, intake, tuner, LTs, midpipe, mufflers, suspension, taillights w/ sequentials, spoiler, stereo, udps etc can and would be pulled off the car.. I have EVERY stock piece to this car, i would NOT pull out the gears, nor would i get the delete plates.. Everything else i did myself and it is simple to do. The delete plates would only stay because well- i heard once you take off the stock plates n motor, you can't just bolt it back on and have it work..
I would sell all those mods online and hope to make a grand or so.
