Steve,AVHS Dad said:I hit 50 a few months ago and my wife and I decided it was time for my mid-life crisis car. Our now 17 year old son will get the 2000 Infiniti QX4 I've been driving which has about 150K miles but drives and looks like 20K. The first thing I decided I wanted in this car was a V8 rumble. Looking around, the only such cars that looked like real cars to me were the 2008-2009 Mustang GT's (I don't think the 2010's were out yet). I talked to a dealer and kept my eyes open but didn't feel the prices were quite there yet. Then I saw a dealer ad one weekend that included a 2008 Mustang Bullitt for $24,988. Bullitt? What's that? Did some research and really liked what I found. Understated on the outside, beefy on the inside, and the Steve McQueen/Bullitt mystique. Of course by the time I called the dealer, the car was gone. But at least I now know what I want. This will be my "commute" car, but since I drive about 2 miles each way between my BART (metro) station and home, it's not much of a commute. I have no interest in piling up the speeding tickets or putting in any track time. This car will be well cared for and appreciated. All I ask for in return is the rumble, reliability and looks.
There you have it. The search is on!
