I have been looking everyday to find the one but wanting low miles kills it.

My advice: If you're still in college, continue to save for a Terminator and give it to yourself as a college graduation gift...or as a down payment on a new Mustang.

Wow! You cannot support yourself yet you have the money for your car.

I have absolutely no idea how to respond to this.

Edit: You are worried about your car... such a petty thing. I teach at a local university. I know people who have lost their jobs and gone back to school,,, not because they wanted a degree but because they wanted the money.

Think about this. 50 years old, trying to feed their kids. And, going into debt that even bankruptcy cannot forgive. I see these people every day.

To tell you the truth, you car isn't very important.

I understand where you are coming from it sucks to see people losing there job. How i look at people spending money on there car is like someone who is into an expensive hobby skiing, golfing.. they spend way to much but it makes them happy. Im going to college hoping for a good job. I will never own a mansion, go golfing, but I will spend money on a car cause its what I enjoy doing. Pretty sucky that almost every job now a days needs a degree.

10k range you can pick up a really nice Stang. I bought the Silver GT in my Sig 3 years ago and I paid $7,500 for it with 70k miles, 1 owner, no accidents. Now I can say that the prices are even better now and you can get these cars for dirt cheap. Just be patient while you look.

You can find some well modded GTs in the 10k range.

Personally, I would just keep saving until you can find afford a Mach 1 since you're already pretty close. Much better platform to work on and will always be worth more than a modded GT.

Wow I missed in his original post where he asked for a lecture, professor. Who are you to judge how and where he spends the money he saved? You came across as a pompous ass which you normally are not. So i suggest taking out your frustrations on whom they should be directed at , not some college kid asking for advice on how to spend the money he worked hard for and earned.
