Well I did it, bought a new toy, a 2003 Mustang SVT Cobra convertible. This is going to hit my toy funds hard, real hard. But I had to upgrade from a GT to Cobra(the one with the blower), its the man in me. Ill post pics later.

Very beautiful car, I love the sound of those mustangs. My brother had a 01 GT up until last year and it was sick, I can only imagine how awesome the Cobra is. I sold it for him last year after my family finally convinced him the car is not practical. He's just getting his first real job and doesn't have the money to support a car like this, not to mention we live in Canada so the car was in the garage half the year! I think once he gets a good job, another GT or Cobra will be one of his first purchases.

the Cobra has a real cool blower wine, your a 80mph in a blink of an eye. The salesman that rode with me, barely did 45mph in his car, he had sweaty palms after my test drive. But now its in the garage and ready for its winter nap.

Age doesn't matter when you have extra...
ponies under foot. I know,I went from having 1 ticket in my entire driving time to 2 in the past 3 years with a 03 Subaru WRX, and have had the car 7 years now and I'm 46.
Funny thing though, I had an 86 Pony (street&strip), 351W with a holley 174 roots blower and scoop, stickin out the hood, making 470HP+ and all the cops wanted to do was pull me over just to look at it. I never got a ticket with it and I had it for 10 years(6 1/2 with the blower). I bought the Scooby so I could have my cake and eat it too(daily driver with HP on tap,plus good gas milage, the stang got 15 at best).

I second the fact that a WRX is a lot of fun. It pains me when my Forrester is blocked in by my dad's WRX and I have to drive it

This was my brothers 01 GT

He ended up getting a more useful Impreza.

This is my Forester, it is a beast in the snow.

Subaru's are great cars and very reliable, hence why most of my family drives them

I have driven all these cars, some more often than others, guess which one I got my first ticket in?
