for a 6 year old truck w/ 165k on the odo, I'd have to agree. That is in very nice shape!

Almost identical story (other than the stolen part), I just wanted to point this out, before doing my post!!!!

Well.......I guess I'm gonna be the enemy, but here's my story condensed:

I grew up in a japanese only house(my parents had owned domestics prior to my birth). When it came time for me to get my first new car I wanted a 2004 mACH1 Mustang(since Trans Ams weren't "new" anymore).

However after the negative comments by several people, I got discouraged from buying American. I was looking at buying a Cobalt SS, since my uncle works for GM. However, I bought a 2004 Acura RSX Type S, great car as mentioned by rray2000, but it was missing something.

TORQUE

I got mad, and pretty much said, "I'm not gonna live my life in fear, if the Mustang/Camaro/Firebird were terrible cars...how do they have a 35+yr history?"

So, I kept the Acura, but kept searching for a Firebird/Trans Am.....never found one in my price range(especially for a 2nd car), so I ended up getting a 2000 Mustang GT (flame on).

I've had the car for over a year, and no problems. It's really changed my opinion on American cars, and I will be purchasing 1 of the big 3 pony cars either in 2010 or 2011. I also plan to continue to buy American as much as possible........as Toyota is the enemy. haha

So to answer the question:
2004 Acura RSX Type S
2000 Ford Mustang GT

You know, getting on the list cost me a $500 deposit, with a contract guarenteed at MSRP. I don't know if thats good or bad, but I was willing to pay to reserve the car.

Before I did the Porsche, I had always wanted to do a 69 Camaro (was my dad's first car). So as of right now there's not much I won't do to get the car.

Is the norm to not have to put anything down?

GM has stated a few times that dealers should not be accepting any money for Camaro deposits. Maybe your dealer will be straight up about it, but I imagine these cars will be selling for well over MSRP at first

Talking

I have 2 (so far) cars.

My MAIN car is a 2000 Dodge Stratus SE sedan with a 2.4 DOHC 160hp 4cyl engine.


My new car, that belonged to my dad is a 2004 Monte Carlo LS coupe.


It has the 3.4 160hp V6 in it, which is more than enough for me as a daily driver. it has power everything (except seats), AM/FM CD with Sirius Satalite radio installed aftermarket. I only plan on adding the rear wing that was optional on the LS for the rear deck, and paint the rocker panels from matte black to the same white that the rest of the car is painted.
