I live in Salt Lake City, so most of my drives would be in the spring and summer, and only on nice to semi-nice days (no snow of course). I've only had my Bullitt for two years now, bought it with 86,000 miles on it, and it now has about 88,000. I have this silly anxiety about hitting 90,000 miles so I've backed off some.
Oh, funny story.....the best way/time to buy a used muscle car in SLC is in the Fall/early Winter, from a dealer. They were asking $8800 for it. I did a test drive, of course fell in love with it, but told the sales guy "eh, it's just a mustang and I really don't need it. Plus with snow season coming and being a rear wheel drive, nobody will buy this car until spring." Of course I said all of this knowing that I freak'n love Mustangs, and everything Steve McQueen, but totally down played it. So, after letting the dealer beg me for a week to buy it, I offered $5000. After a few insults and curse words, they took my offer based on exactly what I said about the snow and it sitting on their lot for several winter months. Ha, suckers!
I've bought and flipped 3 other mustangs over the past 10 years, always doubling my money, but my Bullitt is a keeper!
