I recently looked at a fox body with a near perfect body, new paint, T-5 trans
, and a 347 stroker for $4,000. It was the prettiest fox I'd ever seen and would snatch a kink in your neck. I've looked at 4.6 2vs in good condition for around $5,000 to $8,000, and I've seen two 2005-2006 GTs for around $9,000 with 120,000-150,000 miles and bodies in perfect condition. It can be done, just lay back, relax, and be patient. You'll find a wonderful car that you can make even better, and things will look up soon.
