Here we go. 1965 Buick Skylark. Needs to be washed. Oh, don't mind the chrome on the window in the 3rd pic. I don't know what happened there. I checked, and it was fine.

Sharp ride, DeTrevni.

I just came to the realization that I am too lazy to take new pics. Old Pic

I have since fixed that little flipped up part at the top left on the windshield and replaced the foggy headlights.

sand man, how do you like the GT? i am thinking of getting it, but afew things are holding me back. number one, the insurance is steep for a 16 year old male, but second and most important, how is it in the snow? like can you get around in the snow at all, or is it like 1/2 inch and you can't get out of your drive way? obviously it's a light rear wheel drive, so i know it won't be great by any means, but if you take your time can you get around in it? one last thing, it gets about 20 miles per gallon, right? i can;t find the MPG on ford's site. i would get over the insurance issue, and my parents said they would help me pay for insurance, and i have 10 grand in my bank, and will probably have another couple thousand by the end of the summer, so i really want to shoot for a nice used mustang for my first car, it's just the snow issue holding me back.

If you are driving around a brand new mustang gt in the snow, you deserve to get stuck.

1. Expect to spend right about $30,000 on a new Mustang GT despite what the commercials say. If you buy a used 2006, you might be able to find something in the low 20k range.

2. Snow driving sucks. No traction at all on hills, so easy to get yourself in trouble. We haven't tried putting a bunch of weight in the rear, but with the winter we had in Colorado this last year, it stayed in the driveway about half the time. A half inch probably wouldn't stop you, as you can burn down to the pavement if you need to... But much over a solid inch and you could be in trouble.

3. MPG depends on the driver and it takes a little while to break in. For the first 5k miles, it averaged around 18 MPG for my wife and 20 MPG for me. Now it's around 19 for her and 21 for me with a half and half city-to-higway driving mixture. Remember that you'll have to put Premium gas in it tho, or it's bad for the cylinders.

4. They've managed to make the new Mustang feel a great deal like the classic Mustangs of the 60's and 70's. Feels like a raw, "pony" car when driven. Very tight handling, almost as good as the 'Vette we traded on my car.

Good luck, man. Buying cars is a sticky business.

yeah, I think I may have to get a economical car...something with 3 cylinders like a Geo Metro or something, because these gas prices are outrageous.

Is your mustang gt manual? I've been wanting to have a good ol' stoplight race with one lately, but haven't had the opportunity where there was no traffic around.

Thanks Sammy, but yeah, with the 7 I thought outside of the box, I didn't want to do what EVERY 7 owner was doing to their car.

As for the 5, I will be keeping it within "BMW guidelines" was thinking of a VF s/c, AC Schnitzer 19's, M Tech front and rear bumpers.

Ginormous "bling" wheels = gross. My opinion, so it doesn't really matter. I've always been a fan of subtle mods.
