If you don't buy the car, at least there's plenty to do there, we often go over, take Mustang out for a run. The vendor's most likely an older chap, hence the low miles, garage kept & under sealed, wonder what he'd drop to.

If that's a genuine P71 and carfax's ok that's a good value for money car.

Does seem the first decent priced late-ish model one that I have seen in the classifieds.

Much though some may find them appealing, I don't, and you can buy a Cadillac CTS 3.6 Sport for that money which will be faster and handle better. Just a thought.

The idea and appeal of the Vic is that it isn't a 'Sport'. They really are extremely comfortable cruisers.

I rented one for a week last year in Florida, did Miami airport to st petersburg and back along with some running about. Was ace I loved it. Lots of freeway and It was getting 26 miles to the us gallon.

I'm 32 so not exactly target market but I had a v8 stag on the west coast the 2 weeks before. Not sure I would want one in the UK but perfect in the States
