Thanks for all of the suggestions.
I guess I am the type that likes to make sure that all the "i's" are dotted and the "t's" are crossed. It is sort of a big deal in my profession, if you will call it that
. Before I buy any car I will have an independant mechanic look it completely over.
On a side note, I have been looking and drooling over the stangs for a long long time now...but I am a bit of a puritan, and since I have a car that is still working fine, I have not let my desire override my cheap logic. But, if I can find a car that is exactly what I want, at a good price, I may have to let my desire rule. I should probably just buy a new one, when the time comes, but then, here comes the puritan in me, I would rather not be the first one to put a scratch in it...thus it will be more fun. (okay I am crazy, and cheap if you will.)
Another neat thing, and something I have been trying to sell the wife on, is the fact that carmax has stores all over the place. I think it would be a riot to find a stang in say Spokane, Wa., and then have to drive it cross country, back to Michigan. But, then again the mechanic issue would come into play.
Again, thanks for all of your help with the 1006 of the 2006 GT.
