Pardon me for asking, but do you happen to like a 13 year old Lumina better?

Ouch....

On a side note that Mustang looks great, I love them without the rear spoilers.

On a different side-note while that Lumina looks good from everything I have heard, learned, and experienced with Lumina's, including my friend who drives one, they are pos, but that's just me.

My last Z34 went for 250xxx miles, and this car has sizable amounts of quality. This particular Z34 is the best one you are going to come across, hands down. But, I have owned others, and compared to quality of other vehicals in the same class, to me, its one of the better ones. I wouldn't have owned so many.

But who cares what I drive?? I don't like the new mustang. If I were to spend 25k on a new car it sure as hell wouldn't be that. I'm expressed to my opinion??

No prob, and if you don't mind me asking can you post some pics of your car in the one thread, I forget which one it's like car pics or somethin, I'm interested in seeing more shots of that Lumina along with an engine pic and maybe a list of mods. Despite what I have learned about Lumina's that one looks damn nice.

I think I'll drive my Accord until the engine dies. That should be by around 400,000 miles at this point, might pass it on to my kids in 6-8 years (be a classic by then!). Never had one thing wrong with the entire car that needed to be repaired. Right now I'm at 224,000. MY buddy is already making fun of mine though as he has racked up 310,000 on his 91 Accord. Know one guy who works at the local Honda/Acura place how had a 87 Accord F/I that did 422,000 before the tranny gave way. Some might say the old Accords are built pissy. But to me they sure as hell are built like tanks.

All I have to say about the Lumina, just be glad you never got a Quad Four version

Nice, what are the price ranges on those accords? Like around your model, how much would you expect me to be able to find one for?

A 90-93 model ranges from about $1800-$3500 pending mileage and model. A low mileage 92-93 EX will run $3000-$3500. While a higher mileage 90-91 LX runs around $1800-$2200.

Nice, definitely something to think about to buy around the end of next summer Especially after seeing your mpg.

I love those gauges. Ford did an excellent job with the new Mustang.
