I know this is not what you are asking, but it is relevant.
1968 bought 1966 '66 6cyl convert for $3600 w/11k miles. sold in 1971 for $3500.
1972 bought new Convert (Q code) for $4,000: still have it; appraised $34,000.
1989 Convert 5L 5spd bought 1990 $9,000 (21k miles)sold 1996 (125k miles)for $7,000 to a friend who still has it.
1983 Convert 6cyl Pd $1,000 March '06 (133k Miles)sold Aug 06 for $3250 (141k miles).
Mustang Converts have great resale value and are damn fun to own and drive, particularily the performance models.
#908 of 1138 2007 Mustang GT Auto v Stick
Mar 26, 2007 (7:20 am)
I am looking into purchasing 2007 Mustang GT. I had a chance to rent one for two days while on a business trip. It was an automatic and I was disappointed with the hesitation when I stepped on the gas. I thought it was very noticeable. I have since learned that it is because of the "electronic" throttle. I test drove a stick a few weeks ago and don't recall this hesitation. Does the stick not have electronic throttle? Please send me your experiences or thoughts on this issue.

Just last week I had the fuel pump replaced in my 05 V6 because of the throttle lag issue. Apparently there is a technical service bulletin specifically for this issue. I also found a thread on this Mustang forum about a way to "reset" the electronic throttle (you have to put the key in a certain position, depress the throttle very slowly, then drive the wheels off the car to reset). I did not notice a difference after the reset but since the pump was replaced its been like a different car and in a GOOD way. I have not driven the GT or a manual so I can't say for sure if they have the same hesitation. If I ever upgrade, I will definitely get the manual just because it seems like more fun to drive!

They might be but I couldn't wait. I made the dealer an offer on a GT/CS I've been eye balling for a while and he took it. Basically $1,000 under invoice with the free auto ($995) plus $1,000 rebate. They might have better incentives next month but I think it's the end of the 1st quarter and sales are down and they need to sell cars. I am very happy with my deal, and get the car on Wed.

I can wait indefinitly, my current car is just fine and I'm waiting for a real incentive. There are many cars here at the dealers waiting for my money.
#912 of 1138 2007 Mustang V6 with 5 speed
Mar 27, 2007 (1:09 am)
Purchased the V6 Convertible with Pony package, performance package, comfort group, cloth top & boot, and 5-speed. Sticker was $30,190. Final deal was $26,000. Test drove two GTs but settled on the V6 which got 29 miles to the gallon on the highway trip home. Dealer was Metro Ford on Rte 44 in Massachusetts. Enjoyed the buying experience...they let you take the car out alone (no salesman). They didn't track you to sell you additional warranties, Lojack, etc. Having owned convertibles in the past, I am impressed with how little wind noise the mustang produces. Shaker 500 audio is good enough for me. I highly recommend buying the car with the cloth top! Metro was the first dealership (out of six) where I saw any 2007 with a cloth top...dramatic improvement to the look of the car!!

With 0%, thats a great deal, then again just about any deal with 0% is a good deal!

It sounds like you paid close to sticker which was too much given what the market was then for automatics. I bought the same thing in convertible form (approximately $5000 more - sticker was $35,030) and my payments are $439.25 to Ford Credit.
But why worry about it - what's done is done. Enjoy!
