Default Sold the Mustang 5.0 - What Now?

I sold my 17 Mustang GT to Carvana a few weeks ago. The car was in immaculate shape with 3700 miles. I liked the car, but I never really warmed up to it to be honest. No emotional attachment etc.

So...on to something else.

I'm really considering either a 96 LT4 or C5 Z06. I would also consider a late 90's LT1 car if it was clean and stock with low mileage and the 6 speed. My budget is about 20k-25k. If any of you all have a lead on any clean unmodified and low mileage examples of those cars, PM me!

I should be able to make a move at the end of the month. In the middle of refinancing our cabin right now.

An unmolested C5 Z06 is the holy grail of Corvettes. Good luck on your search.

Yeah, they are a bit of a unicorn. I've seen them though, they are out there.

One of the Vette dealers has a 94 Black/Red Interior with a 6 speed manual and 8900 miles. Tempted, but will probably keep looking.

Well, then, I hope your expectations are as low as your budget.

I deleted a post, I wasnít asking for the thread to be locked down.

I barely post on this forum anymore anyway. Not out of butt hurt, just got other things going on.

Regardless, I donít care if yíall make fun of me. You are just a bunch of folks that donít know me anyway.

A few of us own crowd plows. It's nothing to be ashamed of.

Does it have to be a performance car? A luxury land yacht would make for some nice cruising.

I had my grandfather's 76 Buick Electra 225 limited ( 2 door) and although it wouldn't set any speed records, it was one of the nicest riding vehicles I ever had. It's like having a steering wheel on your lazyboy recliner

Previous to that he had a '69 Electra 225 that moved pretty good. iirc, that had a 425 in it

My Dad had a '76 Buick Electra Park Avenue with the 455. Not a sports car, but it had some giddy up. I actually drove that car from Vancouver to Ottawa in '86. Very comfortable riding car. Was pretty fast too. Gas mileage wasn't all that great, but it had more than enough torque.

We may not have met, but we've known you for several years, from your posts here and there. You're always welcome to post here. If we do bust your balls, it is all in good fun.

I understand that life happens and shit, but you're always welcome to post here. Especially the traffic reports.
