      All my life I have loved muscle cars. I found this one for sell in Florida. Is it me or is this a car for the young birds? I think the white would go with my gray hair, LOL.

      Well I would much rather have a Stang (Cobra man!!) and I wouldn't want my car to be in km/h in America. Seems like a nice price and all but I'd go newer and go Ford :D

      I'll probably regret saying it, but to me, Camaros and Firebirds looked better during the 90s-00s did than the Mustang. The new Mustang looks good, and I have seen it up close, and it is pretty nice, but not like jaw dropping to me.

      Me thinks there is also MPH on the speedo panel. so no biggie, have all the leather enterior pieces dyed black and IMO would be killer.
      Is an east coast car Ron,NO RUST?

      I'd buy that car for the right price in a heartbeat. In fact if I weren't looking for a 57 Chevy I might move in on it. ;)

      I f you like trans ams and your not interested in a stang I think its a very nice car. I wouldnt worry about it being white. I had a white stang and it was the easiest car I ever had to keep clean, It doesnt show dust easy. As far as interior kust be careful. Your never to old for a car like that.

      That is a nice looking car, I know it is an anniversary edition (white with the blue stripe, just forget which one. They were also a limited production run I think.

      Always thought they look a little redneck to me... but that is definitely a nice lookin one.

      Has lots of potential for a well done and tasteful sound system too ;)

      It's a nice looking car no doubt...but not my favorite. If we were talking classic muscle cars though (it's been mentioned i'm continuing it lol)...i'd have to go with a 55 chevy, or the cream of the crop (for me at least) a 34 ford roadster mmmmmmmm they are so freaking sweet, black, nice wheels, chromed out engine mmmmmmmm

      anyway...it looks like a really nice car. As far as your question...your only as old as you feel :)

      Ronnie, age doesn't matter. If you like the car, and it's a good buy, get it. I'm running around in a Mach 1 right now and my wife is running around in a '66 Mustang, and we're not exactly spring chickens.... :rolleyes:

      How far do you plan on driving it in one sitting? IMO the ride and sitting position would get old very fast. The X is a bump-mobile but at least the sitting position is good. I can spend a couple of days driving an X. I dont think I would like to do it in a Camero.

      LOL, @ Al, yes am an old redneck. Too funny. But the car seems to be in great shape. It is an old car from Canada for sure. That could be easily changed too. But I also just found a 91 Honda Civic Hatchback with a 5 speed that only has 27K miles on it. Belonged to an elder lady who just kept it garaged after her husband diedOnly thing is that there is NO A/C. In Houston, that is unheard of. Great price on it though. That also is a long distance travel to get it. If it had A/C, I would buy it site unseen, but now I have to check in and see how much if it is even possible to add A/C.

      Does anyone know? A car without A/C and I want to add it and make it look factory, can it be done and how much estimated costs?

      A/C is easy to install on a Honda. In fact, It is a "dealer installed" option. Should cost you around 1000-1500 bucks. It takes around 8 hours to install. You can go to the dealer and have it installed or buy it and DIY. I'd stick with a honda 134 system.

      Good luck BBQ, Civics are great cars.

      Ronnie, where in Florida is the car located?

      What the heck is a car doing without AC in Florida?
