Default should i buy it?

coworker is selling her 85 stang. 300+ hp, nice condition. manual transmission, no ac. wants roughly 3000 for it. not a bad price, imo. not for that engine in extremely good condition. hatchback, btw

i was contemplating buying a ssei to swap some stuff with, but now that this is an option, im questioning.

this is exactly the car i wanted growing up, with the exception of the color.

Exactly the car you wanted growing up...I am not a ford fan, but heck, why not? The car I wanted in HS was a 1988 Iroc-Z. Still have never had one. If I found one and had the cash, I would probably be all over it, assuming there wasnt another use for the $$$.

Can you get that and still have a Bonne?

If that is the car you've always wanted, then go for it. You'll regret it if you don't

5 spd would be fun. You've got a bonneville, why not something right wheel drive and choose your own gear.

While I am not a ford fan, that is my only reason for dismissing it.
