Traded the SVTF Today

Well, after a month of searching for a Mustang, today I found what I was looking for. I found a 2004 Mustang Mach 1 in black with black leather with 10,000 miles. After my trade in was all said and done, I'm paying $304 a month for 72 months. 72 months is what I chose because I'll just save cash that way and in 6 months put a bunch of money down on the principle and refinance for lower payments.

I ended up getting a great trade for my SVTF, so if anyone is thinking about trading theirs, I suggest you do so while the getting is good. Now is the prime season for these cars since people are buying "summer" cars.

I pick the new ride up next Wednesday and I'll get some pictures posted up!

Can't hate on you for jumping ship, the Mach 1 is a killer looking car and damned fast too. I look forward to seeing some pics

Very nice ride! I almost bought one last month, but just knew that if I did gas prices would take off. I hate being right. But if you don't mind the frequent and expensive fill-ups, that is a great car!

Sad to see another SVTF go, but I really like what you replaced it with so I can't bash you for trading it. LETS SEE SOME PICS!

Who'd you get to finance an 04' for 72 months?

My dealer went through a credit union instead of just using Ford Credit.

Go easy on the throttle and it should not be too bad (half throttle would likely be quicker than a SVT Focus anyway). My mom's 99 Cobra vert got 26 miles a gallon on the highway if you really babied it, and if I remember correctly the Mach 1's got the same DOHC 4.6 (but maybe with iron block?) as the old cobras when the SC'ed cobras came out.

But, no matter what gas mileage you get, awesome purchase!
