Muscle Car Talk: How To Buy (Another) Muscle Car

By  | 


By Mark Weisseg

I mentioned in a previous article I am looking at buying a used Shelby. I want a 2014 with the 662hp and then add a few gizmos to take me to near the 800 hp level. The problem, like many, justifying buying yet another car. Should I, shouldn’t I?

I was with my Mother over the weekend and it’s something she said to me that got the fire in the belly roaring again.
I already have a very loud and fast Mustang so do I need one with almost 800 hp? Of course not!
Mom said over the weekend I should go everywhere I want to and get anything I want because life goes very fast.

I got to do some more thinking on the big pony Mustang. Obviously I need money to get this going but it should be possible. save some money, sell one or two things, juggle the finances. It will take some time, but it’s do’able.

I dread the story of people who always come up short in life. We never go on vacation because…… We never get a new car because…. We live in this crappy house because…… And so on.
If you want something badly, especially a car, it may take time, it may take a long time, but it is possible.

When I get into an airplane I always notice just above the gray rainy clouds are blue skies and sunshine. You just need to reach a bit higher than the other guy.
I have many anecdotes of people who’ve worked for years to get their prized cars. Some save for years, some juggle their finances, some have even bought and sold a vehicle incrementally until they get the car of their dreams.
Whatever your route, with some careful planning, it’s all possible. This doesn’t mean go hungry all within a box by the side of the road, but have your long-term goal fixed and one day you will get there.

So, I don’t need a Shelby, but I also don’t want to pass away thinking I never even tried to own one.

Now, go touch the sun.

    Thanks for this article. I recently went out and purchased a 94 camaro z28.the interior/body needs attention, but the engine mods are what attracted me to the car,and i’ve been wanting a 4th gen f-body for awhile now. I really thought that at this point in my life that i’d be able to go out and buy something way nicer than what i brought,but sometimes life has diffirent plans. I know that it will be awhile before the car’s where i want it to be,was actually 2nd guessing myself for getting it,but this article helped me put things in their proper your life and do things for yourself today,because life is short and you may not get a chance tomorrow.thanks again for the article.
