Need some advice
I am coming apon age to drive and am going to buy a stang. I'm only 13 but my dad is allowing me to buy it early to begin work on it. I have 16,000 to play with from saving and inheritance. I have narrowed it down to 2 choices. Buying a late model Foxbody for a couple thousand and dropping in a new 302 (345HP vs. 225HP at engine). Then I would still have money for Supercharger, Nitrous, Wheels, Heads, Headers and exhaust system. These are all possibilities. My other choice is to get a 00 to 03 GT for all the money I have. So I would not be able to buy any HP Parts. Meaning I would be stuck with 260 HP for a while until I get some more money. But the newer model would probably be in better shape and be more comfortable and economical. Somebody please help

let the boy have some dreams guys.......... im pretty sure at 16 that if you guys had 16 grand to put up on a car that you wouldnt be thinking about an " old 6cyl" or a "helmet and a bike". expecially when your hotrodding is in your family.......

just becuase you guys couldnt, dont make him feel like he cant

i bought my 87 5.0 at 15, and have had it ever since...... and it ran high 13's bone stock not saying it had alot of power... but it was fast

i say get a 5.0, or a 99+ GT , but for 16 grand you could find a nice 67 Fastback :shigrin .......
