Re: my stang pics
So too late to suggest leaving it. Wow it was awesome. It is a waste of time and money highly modifying a vehicle usually (different if you plan on keeping it forever..do what ever you want then)...a dealer will never give you credit for that. What they want are stock vehicles in good shape. It makes sense if you think about it..from their point of view. Custom paint jobs for example make a vehicle worth less than a good condition stock paint job. So if you can continue to sell off the goodies and return her to stock you will probably do OK I suppose.
Ever watch any of the Barret Jackson auctions on Speedchannel? Mustangs..late 60's..stock but with the highest options and in fine condition are selling for well over 100,000 now. Similar but with new high-tech modifications (as in 'Gone in 60 Seconds'..the 2nd movie made about 10 years ago) way less..never close to what money was put into it. Often they have awesome Hot-Rods...same thing usually...can't be sold at a profit or even the same as the money spent.
JBA s.s. headers&exhaust, K&N cold air intake, Bosch Iridium Plus 4 plugs, Royal Purple in motor, 5spd & diff.,Superchips programmer, axle girdle. Also have but yet to install KYB Gas-A-Just shocks and Belltech sway bars.
