Help! Coupe or Vert?
I've been holding out for a GT Coupe because I really like the fastback look, but I haven't been able to find one in the color that I like (Black or Mineral Grey). I don't have the patience to wait for an '05 order that may never come, so I've been searching the Internet in vain. Well I suddenly found both a GT Coupe and GT Vert. The problem is, the Coupe has the red interior, which I'm not particularly fond of (especially since this is to be my mid-life crisis mobile). The Vert has the perfect colors, but... it's a Vert. The last Vert I owned was a 1971 Olds Cutlass Supreme, which was awesome, but hot as hell driving around Central Texas (I'm now in Northern Virginia). I'm torn because I don't know if I should hold out for a Coupe that totally fits the bill, or go for the Vert now. Both are on the lot and are a couple of hundred below MSRP (they won't do X-plan). I don't want to start a Coupe vs. Vert war, but I guess I'm looking for opinions on how much I'd enjoy a Vert in the Mid-Atlantic region. I also have two sons, who I plan to occasionally cart around in their car seats. The seats seem to fit better in the Vert, but I know it's not as safe as a hardtop. I also plan to do a mod or two and wonder if stripes would look silly on the Vert. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, as I need to move fast if I'm going to catch this deal. Thanks to all from a Stang noob.
Did I mention that my wife likes the Vert over the Coupe?
