Hey guys. Been lurking a little since I picked up a new '17 ST3 after x-mas. Traded in 2 cars, including my beloved '03 Cobra I had since new. The ST is my DD now and really enjoying it!

Nice car. Why did you trade the Cobra?

Sent from another galaxy.
My DD Crown Vic gave up the ghost @ 265K with a cracked cylinder head. Was kind of forced to put the Cobra on the block since it had Hagerty's insurance and I wasn't driving it much. Hopefully it goes to someone who will take care of it like I did.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Welcome to the forums. Enjoy your ST3. I just can't see trading in a 03 Cobra to a dealer, they have such good market value, I can't see the dealer giving you much for it.

I know man. I was kind of backed into a corner...needed a car. I wound up getting 18.5K for the Cobra. If I sold it privately, I would have asked for no less then 20K.

That wasn't too bad of a buy-out on the '03 Cobra, especially if it had average miles on it. Those cars are by far the best looking new-edge car and one of my top 5 favorite mustangs for sure. Congrats, and I think you should feel pretty good about the transaction. Glad to see you got a car with the CF interior package. I hope to do the same when my time comes to pick up a FoSt. There's some really good deals out there right now on '17 models.

18.5k is a pretty reasonable amount.
