ARGH!!! Back to square one!
I hate this...I was THIS close to getting a 2000 mustang GT. It had only 35k miles on it, and he wanted $11k for it. . I even called the guy, and arranged a time for when I was gonna pick it up. My dad said I could get it if I paid it off myself, and I agreed. Then today he decides its hella fast and I'm gonna kill myself on it, and says that insurance will be too much, even though its gonna be under his name...Then he says it takes too much gas, even though I'm paying for it all!
What really pisses me off is that if it was a japanese car I probably woulda had it, no questions asked. But since it was Ford, and my dad doesnt like american cars, he had to do research first. All his mechanic buddies told him it was a good car, but they also put that I'll kill myself on it. I actually drive fairly carefully, and if I had as nice a car as the Mustang I would be even more careful not to crash it because then I would end up driving a POS.
Anyways...enough ranting. Now I need to find another car, and fast, because the transmission in our minivan broke, and we're just gonna get rid of it instead of spending money on fixing it. Any ideas on the type of car? I want something sporty, but not with tons of power like the mustang GT cuz my dad wont let me get it. I could probably get a v6 mustang, but I don't really want to, because everytime I drive it I'll be thinking "I wish I had the GT."
I'm considering an Integra GS-R, but I find them for 10grand with double or triple the miles that the mustang had. Also, everyone says they are good cars, but they have really low torque...
Any ideas please?
