    Well, really... It is a car dilemma, cause I'm not going to take my POS truck to Formal. :p


    I'm wanting to take either:

    2005 Mustang GT (on the grayer side of blue)

    1964 1/2 Mustang 289 w/ punched edelbrock (deep navy blue)

    1964 Mustang 302 w/ punched out edelbrock (off-white w/ sky blue racing stripes)


    Decisions decisions....
     
  2. That's a tough one.

    Do you have pictures of each car?

    I'd go with the new one, just because it's much more likely to get you some winterfest loving. Most highschool chicks don't care about your classic car, but get all hot and bothered over new mustangs. :D

    ...I was a lonely teenage broncinÂ’ buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck,
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died...


    Not really a car guy, but I'll ask some important questions to consider.

    1) Which car does she (I assume) prefer?
    2) Which car smells the best?
    3) Which is the most comfortable (in the front and back seat ;) )
    4) How do the sound systems in each car compare?
    5) Are all cars reliable?
    6) Which car does she prefer (that's right I'm saying it twice)?

    I went with the 2005.

    Apparently it can go 140 MPH before you have to get off the freeway. :hyper:
     
  11. While fun, scaring the crap out of your date probably isnt going to get you much in the lovin' department.

    You're date probably knows jack about cars so the 2005 will probably be the nicest to her anyway.

    I voted for the GT ... but I thought you were talking about a Ford GT.

    Mike, you do know that there really wasn't such a thing as a '64 or '64.5 Mustang? All '64.5s are really '65s but get the '64.5 label by enthusiasts.

    Anyway, go old school next for the prom.

    Here to vouch for Mike's straightness (not that there's anything wrong with the other kind.)


    As for which car Miguelito, the winter formal memories will be as much for you as they are your date, so take the car you want to take.

    Unless either '64 is in, "like new" condition.... take the 2005.
