: traded in my svt
04-08-2004, 06:38 PM
well,, i was out with my girlfriend who was looking to buy a car and i ended up buying one myself. i traded in my 02 svt focus for a 01 saleen mustang. The car just looks mean. I love it. Obviously, being that i came from the focus, the mustang drives totally different. It will take a little getting used to. Ill try to get pics up but being I dont have a digital camera, it will be a little difficult. I will miss my focus. I loved that car and had alot of money into it. I traded it in as was, rims, stereo, and all. Oh yea, my girlfriend ended up buying a 99 bmw m3. Let the modding begin!!

wow. those are 2 very nice cars. i am drooling now
i am sad to see the svt go, but i think you got the better end of the deal, as long as you can afford it [thumb]
p.s. post pics of both cars when you can!

actually, insurance on the saleen was cheaper, go figure?? and i know some people might be thinking its only a gt with a saleen kit, but i called saleen and had them run the vin and they said it was an authentic.

Sounds like you and the little lady are sitting on some cash!! Wanna SHARE?!!?!? lol
Great trade! Payments about the same?
Cool, I thought u were gonna say something like traded it in 4 some dumb Chevy or something. Nice cars!! Have fun with them. Your girl has nice taste.

Wow! Talk about coincidence I just bought a '97 BMW M3 4dr over a new Focus ZX3 for very close to the same money.
Which Saleen did you get? NA, SC, or E?

My friend also owns a saleen. He told me the reason insurance is cheap is because the saleen cars are (were) 6 cylinder cars that were parted out and rebuilt with the V8. Therefore they still hold the v6 vin.

How fast is the Saleen?

well i dont have an SVT so I'd be jealous in that right, but the Saleen Stang is sweeeeeeet! Good choice for the trade, anything else would most likely have been uncivilized..lol
