It appears that I have. I had to wait to get a text back from my buddy. His is a 2012 which he purchased in mid-2011. I really don't have much of a frame of reference, his car and my brother's 500+ RWHP SVT Cobra are the only Mustangs I've driven.

Something that you will probably appreciate is that because my brothers wife is an FBI agent, he has special plates on his outrageous Mustang that offer him a certain level of immunity for his automotive antics.

In fact, they all rave about the suspension, in comparison to non-BOSS Mustangs.

I will add, that most Mustang enthusiast owners are more about looks and 1/4 times, rather than balanced track prowess. I am always miffed when new Mustang owners are more worried about lowering their cars, and different rims, rather than true performance.

With the Brambo PP/Track Pack cars, replacing the factory struts & shocks with up-graded, adjustable units, should eliminate the brake dive. Panhard bars remove the axel hop. So getting a Mustang to handle well is actually quite cheap and easy, if you don't start with a base car.

Nice looking car.

Nice Targa. I love Porsche's and I drove them the entire time I lived in Germany, but unfortunately, I like cars in warranty and Porsche priced themselves out of my market.

Thanks...it's one of 77 or so that came into the states in 1993. Definitely a hobby car that gets put up in the winter. I keep the Honda Pilot around for the DD.

Don't laugh...

1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT. My father has one he bought brand-new in 1996, and he's kept it garaged ever since. It's only got about 72,000 miles on a rebuilt motor (he had it rebuilt after one of the pistons cracked, and the engine was blue-printed/X-rayed by the company). It's a non-turbo (not the VR-4), with a 3-liter 24V. DOHC V6, pumping out 225 hp to the front-wheels, with a 5-speed manual gear box. It does not have a governor chip, and my father is conviced that he could get it up to 155-160 no problem.

For what this car was, it was enormously ahead of it's time! It had a massive Infinity Sterio-system complete with, no joke, a setup for plugging in an MP3 player, as well as a 6-disk CD changer located just behind the folded-down passenger seats in the hatchback.

It's a 2-door hard-top, with is important, because the next year, 1997, Mitsubishi took away 50 HP from the motor, changed some internal parts in the cabin (vynal to leather, I think), gave it a soft-top, and changed the rear spoiler. It was atrocious, and apparently, the public thought so too, because Mitsubishi ceased production of this model later that year.

My father won't sell it, but I'm convinced he could get $12K minimum if he were to sell it, with possibly $16K to a determined buyer. Not bad, for a car that was origionally $35K+.

I am having a hard time trying to decide. I was leaning towards a vette, but then considered a Camaro ZL1....I think I might even consider a GT500 (sounds like its a better car then the ZL1) I might just get a Camaro SS...but I also like older stuff also......please give me some ideas...I am open to anything

Clearly, what OP needs is a 1997 Subaru SVX - the ultimate collector sports coupe.

Note the highly stylistic windows around the windows. Distinctive no?

The car looks like what a Martian would render if given a telephone description of what an Earth car should look like.

It is an amazing hallmark that I am on the right track.
I guess your amazing hallmark achievement was trolling people in that moon landing conspiracy thread you created.

It sounds like your right track is either playing chess with autistic children, or writing posts as comical as Two Black Belts' GT persona.

Steering the thread back on track - I think that, for me, the 1997 993 Turbo S is the ultimate collector car.

The Okie Corral

I've found one, but as they say in Texas, the owner is "mighty proud of it".

If this car ever is within my price range it will be up against quite a lot of stiff competition. Used Carrera GT anyone (higher mileage of course)? Yes please. As DanaT mentioned earlier, a car like that demanding a price like that puts it in the realm of people like Seinfeld/Leno who just love cars and have to have one for collecting purposes.

The blue Turbo in the picture I put up in post #241 is Seinfeld's.

Long life tires have no grip. I usually don't expect track tires to live much longer than 5 or 6 events.

The Pirelli P-Zeros that came on it have a 200 treadwear. If you don't run track events on them (They would SUCK for that BTW) they should get you about 20k miles. More than that is a bonus.

Watts-link rear ends are a wonderful thing. After my warranty runs out I'll be tossing one on the rear of mine.

While that's got to be hardcore fun, it looks like a pretty pricey pastime.
