Perhaps picking up a new used car..nobody saw this coming

Got a possible straight trade in front of me for the following..lets start with my car

2001 honda civic lx 5-speed sedan
tan inside and out
2 sets of wheels
almost new performance suspension
new clutch and input shaft bearing
new motor mounts
new brakes all around
very good mechanically
aftermarket stereo that bumps
tint
alarm
etc.etc. other stupid shit
118k miles

for

1998 ford mustang gt 5-speed
Steeda tri-ax short shifter
new intake manifold
mach 460 stereo
power driver seat, fogs, power windows, doors, etc.
new tires
BBK cold air
BBK underdrive pulleys
Summit off-road H-pipe
91k miles


The reason I am asking is I dont know much about mustangs..I hear they are pretty reliable and powerful but I wanted to see if any domestic experts had anything to add here

Also, how does the 4.6 liter v8 compare to the 5.0 from the previous stangs

Wow a great answer from a USP student...you all are a bright bunch arent you. The engine order was cancelled and the deposit returned, why; thats noone's business but mine. Now stop wasting my time since you dont know shit, thank you so much!

Maybe my mind will change later, but for now, I have different needs in a car. My statements about american cars may be 100 times off 6000 times into tomorrow, but from the people I have known and things I have seen, iv gotten nothing but bad vibes about them. you can correct me all day long, and say how im wrong, but if I dont want a domestic car, and have NO intention of buying one becuase my mind is set based on fact or stereotype you wont convince me otherwise. now i hope we can move on and get back to the topic at hand...what do I do about my car situation...should I just fix my bearing and drive my car a few more years?
We're wasting YOUR time???

How can we take you seriously on posts like the one above if you COMPLETELY contradict it, and then don't even try to explain it to us?

We'll just assume everything you say means nothing.... like the post above... so it would be OUR time being wasted if we bothered imparting any knowledge or opinions on you.

btw, for people interested, that quote was from this thread.

I'm pretty sure everyone understands your question. We just can't comprehend whether you're telling the truth this time or not...

That being said, I can't help you with your claimed problem.

How many students from Penn do you know? How about from USP? I hate to break it to you, but the two schools are COMPLETELY different with COMPLETELY different students.

That's actually not important though. I remember when you were arguing with a member (the name and thread escapes me, sorry) and he said that when you are wrong, you do one of two things: you either change the subject or just ignore the question. You just did the former of the two.

We did... we can comprehend that you said you have no intention of buying a domestic, then expect us to completely disregard that and just answer your questions about buying one without even querying your apparent about face. I guess either you realised your own naive attitude, or something changed your mind. Either way, is it so unfair for us to know which, before we spend time trying to help you on your latest fad.

My guess is that, with your being impressionable, someone at your new car yard job told you that domestics are good, and you dropped your old opinions and took on his/hers wholus bolus. But hey, I might be way off.

Guys, guys, relax...it's a regular ricer transition. Eventually they see that their cars suck and think they have to go to big American muscle to make up for their wrongs.

I think he's being serial.
