I have a dilemma. I've been driving a black 2000 Mustang GT convertible for the past couple of years. It has about 81000 miles on it. However, there's a great deal on a dark green 1994 Corvette coupe with only 64000 miles on it. I'm having trouble making a decision: should I sell my Mustang and get the Corvette, or stick with what I have?

Things to consider: My Mustang is a 5-speed while the Corvette is auto. The Corvette is in great shape for its age, but understandably has some loose interior pieces; as far as I know, everything works on it though. The Corvette apparently came without a CD player as there is an aftermarket Pioneer set installed. However, the system in the Mustang is considerably better. Insurance will increase with the Corvette, though only $85 every 6 months.

I'm not trying to "flaunt my coolness" or anything like that; I really need some advice. What would you guys do?

Some times its nice just to get something different for the sake of having something different.

I say go for it. I see plenty of people with Mustangs, not so many with vets.

As much as I love Corvettes, i am not a fan of the ones from the 90s, and besides, why would you sell a car that you already love (i'm assuming that you love it)
Hello

if i was gettin a vette it wouldn't be an auto, or a '94. it would seem pretty weird to me 2 sell a '00 for a '94, plus consider if it's your only car a vette only has 2 seats which kinda sucks sometime

I do like my current car, but I love Corvettes too. I guess my major problem is my love for Corvettes verses selling a (in some respects) "better" car.

I say go for the Corvette. If you buy the Corvette, you probably will get more mileage out of it than you would if you kept the Mustang. And replacing the sound system and fixing the interior shouldnt set you back too far in the long run. And an extra $170 a year doesnt seem too bad.

Corvette or Mustang? The answer here is obvious :

If it was a 2009 year edition ZR1 that was made a year too soon, I'd say ditch the damn mustang and take the Corvette!

But. Keep the mustang. Even though it may be a good-looking Corvette that's pretty much good-working, it's an half-old Corvette. Those look....ugly.... nowdays, to be honest. Either the beginning-years Corvette(extra points for class and style) or one of the newer ones. Otherwise keep the mustang with your cool

Just out of curiosity, do you work on your own cars?

cause,
Chevy= easy to work on
Ford= can be a headache some times.

Man, that's a pretty good amount of miles on your mustang.
It is a ford so you should perhaps begin to look for something else,
but I wouldn't go with the vette. The 90's ones have kind of a lame body style and aren't very fast.
Maybe look around a bit and see if you can find any other good deals.

It's funny you say that, actually. I don't work on my own cars (other than oil changes and other maintenance) and my mechanic rags on me for having a Ford, lol.

IMHO, 5 speed > auto, but that's just me. If you can give the vett a test drive and decide that you like it better than the stang, go for it. Personally, I would keep the mustang.

Just a little info for those who don't know, the 94 coupe is held with high honors in the Vet community. Its handling will crap on any mustang. For a few hundred dollars you could be running 400 hp. And it host the small block.

Keep the Mustang, for one, it's far cooler and you'll look more like a murderer; also it's a manual, I know America has an auto gearbox culture, but keep the manual, for one, you'll be considered a real driver (amateurs drive autos); and experience with manuals will help if you're in the rest of the world.

You're welcome. I've been watching about two hours of Top Gear a day over recent rainy days, so I've been fully absorbed into cars. Seriously, keep the Mustang, you'll be taken seriously as a driver. Or, better yet, get a car that can go around corners, like the Top Gear power lap leader, the Ascari A10, if you have £350,000 to spare.

i voted corvette but only if your capable of swapping out the gearbox or maybe the entire drivetrain. auto is pretty lame maybe stick with your mustang if its fun enough, although you dont state which trim either car is in so my guess is the corvette would be quicker regardless.

I love Top Gear. I watch it on YouTube at times when I am free. I understand being "taken seriously as a driver;" an automatic transmission doesn't really ooze "enthusiast". However, if you look at C4 production numbers, something like over 70% of them are auto. Not very assuring for a used market. As for the Ascari, there's a reason why I'm considering a C4 and not a C6.

Vette's are 3X the car a Mustang has ever been

but '94s are ugly, and underpowered, so stick with the Mustang until you can afford a post '97 vette
