I'm curious, what was bad about it? The things I've read about the 3.7L seem to be pretty polarized, with a good many folks saying that it's a Hertz car, a granny car and you should never buy one... and other saying that it's track worthy, mod-friendly and good performance on the cheap.I had a premium 2011 V6 automatic with the pony package. I would not buy that car again. Those are my two cents.
I agree on the body style. I much prefer the 10+ body style too. In fact, I prefer it to the new 2015 body style, as well. That being said, car #2 has had significant customization done to it, visually, so it looks better than most 05-09 Mustangs I think. Here's the link to it:I would lean towards #1. Personally I don't care for the earlier s197 body style. The hp is nearly the same between the old GT and the new V6. Insurance will be cheaper for the V6. Auto is better for drag racing of that's what your into. A supercharger kit will put you at more power than a stock GT of the same year.
The only thing that turns me off the V6 is the auto. I prefer manual trans but still. I would go that way over the older cars.
My 2011 had a host of issues during my 35,000 km of ownership (most were factory defects eventually addressed by TSBs at the dealership) so my experience was definitely soured by that.I'm curious, what was bad about it?

Definitely interested in hearing from someone who actually owned one...
I'm with you on that. Something about it looks right. I've had to do some serious negotiating just to get them at 14.5k... it's likely I'm going to have to scrounge the $500 difference. But I think it's worth it. I'm going with Car #2, supposing we can work the numbers right.The pics of car number 2 are incredible. Perfect looking Stang IMHO. Six years ago I bought a 2001 GT Premium convertible with 40k miles. It was an automatic and I owned it completely trouble free for five years. Traded it in with 77k miles. Most of the time I wished it was a manual, but now that I have a 2014 5.0 Premium manual, I don't think it's as big of a deal as I used to think it was. I've test driven a 2013 six cylinder and it was plenty fast enough, but knew I really wanted the sound of the v8. I don't think you can go wrong with option 2, the 2007. The car is perfectly customized and is a real head turner! 8)
