Yes, I saw that car come up. Terrific car, and worth the asking price, though its a little more than I've got lying around. I'll explain in a minute.
I'll elaborate on the situation for a bigger picture. We've got a neon and a 4wd dakota truck for DD use, though eventually the neon will be replaced by something newer like maybe an Edge. The mustangs are toys that generally don't see DD use, especially in winter. Hers was my wedding gift, so that's staying, but my 96 I paid $1000 for from a coworker. It's a fun car, but I'm seriously considering doing the paint/body work and reselling it. I do paint for a living, to me it's not that big a deal. If I keep the 96, my SC budget will stay low, but if I sell it, I can buy a really nicely done MN12 in it's place. As for space, my two younger sisters and I remember being in elementary/middle schools when dad originally bought the 95 4.6L bird that I later bought for myself. We fit dad and us three, for weeklong vacations comfortably. We were begging him to buy a mustang, but dad was smart enough to buy a roomier car.
The roush/svo unit someone would have to pry from my cold, dead hands. lol. Even if I sold the 96, I wouldn't necessarily get more cash for the car if I were to install it. The labor in/cash out just wouldn't make sense.
I'm not in a huge rush to buy, unless I come across the right deal. I nearly bought an SC I went to go look at, but the floors were gone in it and that's not the kind of project I'd want to take on. If I find a car that needs paint but runs for cheap, for me that'd be a great deal. But if I don't get a deal quickly, it gives me time to redo the 96, and resell it for the bigger budget. In the mean time, I'm vacillating over buying an SC or another 4.6L to use the SC unit I already have. Choices, choices!
