Man that's a tough one as I see so many that would work.These threads don’t get old whatsoever. It’s nice to see people seeking the mighty GT500! ?
What is your perfect car... coupe/vert/color/stripes/options/mods/mileage?
Honestly, I found mine with car guru's. I just put in what I was looking for and put a 500mi search radius on it. You can even search within 500mi of a given zip code, considering youd probably have more luck around major cities. Then I just watched the market and waited for the right one to pop up, saving my money for the down payment all the while. Good luck with the search and let us know when you find it and what you got.
These threads NEVER get old! Helps us relive the excitement when we were searching!
There is lots of info on the forum and our advanced search feature will be useful for you. The gist of it is the cars received improvements through the years and also got more expensive. 07-09 cars are basically the same. 2010 is a stand-alone year (upgraded body with old iron drivetrain). 2011/12 are basically the same (aluminum engines/electric power steering). 2013/14 are basically the same (5.8 engine with TVS supercharger).Great advise on the model years too. I was thinking the extra electronics and HP in the 2013 would be desirable?
I would be very open to hearing quick thoughts on the various years if someone was willing to help.??
I'm pretty green with these cars on drive train, resale, etc.
Hearing from guys that really know would be priceless.
A “good price” will be dependent on year, condition and mileage. A 2010 will be cheaper than a 2011/12, which will be cheaper than a 2013/14. Low miles will be cheaper than high miles and typically mods don’t command a higher sale price and often exclude buyers. Also, expensive performance cars often have multiple previous owners since they are an unnecessary expense... people often buy them, play for awhile and then sell to the next owner when they grow tired of the car or payments or both.Sweet.
Family is good.
I know this is a real generic question but what is "a good" price on one? Should a guy shy away from more than one owner? Things to be leery of?
