"Which Car" Discussion - Need Some Opinions from Mustang Enthusiasts:
Looking for a general consensus so feel free to share your thoughts and knowledge.
I currently own a 2007 Shelby GT500 Conv. which i drive on weekends in nice weather. Car has 14k miles on it. Had it since July and put nearly 2,000 miles on it in 4 months before putting it away. Looking to keep the mileage down to about 2,000 a year, so i started looking into "affordable" (Sub $10k) investment cars, yes i know that is an oxymoron...
Im specifically Interested in 87-93 Fox Body Mustangs in unmolested bone stock (or close to it) condition and with lower mileage (under 80,000 miles) because i believe these cars appreciate in the next 5-10 years. 93 Cobras and Fox Body Saleens have already gone up and been priced out of my budget. I believe stock 5.0 fox bodies are next.
Would like an LX 5.0. The ultimate example of what i want would be a bone stock 5-Speed LX 5.0 Notchback....but finding one of those in nice shape for around $7-$8k is nearly impossible these days.
My question is this, i have found two examples of what i think are great investment cars. In your opinion which car will appreciate more in the near future:
Pic 1) 1988 LX Hatchback 5.0 5-Speed Red 62k miles - Seller asking $8k
Pic 2) 1990 LX Notchback 5.0 Auto Silver 90k miles - Seller asking $7k
Which would be the more desirable option for a 5.0 car, the 5-speed Manual Trans. or the Notchback body style?
Which would you choose and why? Feel free to site specific examples of cars you have seen for sale or sell recently.
I also don't know the production numbers for these cars so if anyone has them, feel free to share! Thanks!
