thinking of trading my ss in for a terminator

This is a discussion on thinking of trading my ss in for a terminator within the Camaro / SS forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I really doubt it is straight up, but if the deal is right, go for it. I woudn't do it ...

    I really doubt it is straight up, but if the deal is right, go for it.



    I woudn't do it with my T/A, but I am far from stock and have invested hundreds of labor hours into my car.
    If it was stock...I would probably do it as long as the numbers worked out right.

    The F body will probably appreciate in value because they are no longer in production, so I would keep it. THINK ABOUT IT! The F bodies respond better to mods... a stock f body with a blower will smoke the shit out of a stock cobra. Now think about a full bolton h/c f body which definitely have over 400 rwhp N/A. If that cobra didn't have a blower, it would be a POS.

    I know they're bad ass and have a nicer interior but a blown F body would probably be faster than a blown cobra on the same psi.

    Get the Cobra, you will love it. They are going up in value too, I just refinanced mine about a year ago due to a letter from my bank saying I had equity in it and the loan value actually INCREASED! PM me with any questions you might have. Alot of guys on here will give you advice on a car they dont even own, I do.

    Figure out a way to have both!

    all of us know that cobras 03-04 are worth like 25-35k range. and the SS's are not
    If u dont like the cobra I'm sure u could sell it for what u payed for it, maybe more. those cobras are impressive and they have a pretty wicked exhaust note for a Ford. the terminators are the only MODERN day mustang i respect. I would stick with the camaro personally, but I will always be loyal to the General.

    P.S. The Terminator doesnt have T-tops

    I agree 100% Neither car is superior in my mind. Making power is making power!!

    I disagree, the LS1 trans am could appreciate in value, plus I bet the camaro will only be in production for a year or too just like the goat. My friend had a 93 cobra.... sold it to buy an 04 GT... enough said lol.

    On the other topic, the cobras are sweet becuase they are all around nicer in quality, probably handle a little better and have more HP stock. But a blown f body with same psi, pulley and bolton's etc should outrun the cobra.

    I dunno man, the goat was ugly IMO. The new camaros are badass and i think they are getting a lot of attention from everyone. The only thing i think that will hault production on the new camaro is world crisis, or US economic tragedy. I think they are going to fly off the lots for a few years, the battle will be back between the Camaros and Rustangs. I can't wait. Only the future will tell for sure though.

    i cant believe how petty some people are being.

    its ok to admit that another car is cool outside of the f body line up. they wont shoot you for it.

    lemons:

    youre obviously confused and need to sit out a few rounds. i didnt take anything you said and run with it, just replied to it. the points you made arent that factual and have an overwhelming bias, further making them sound dumb. the way you talk about ford has no factual backing and you sound like an extreme fan boy. when you make a point and someone counters it with fact dont get upset about it, learn from it.

    these are opinions people, we all can have em. "ford sucks ass" isnt helping the OP with his decision.

    if you have a nice clean ss to go forward with then i personally would stick with it and go heads and cam and possibly build a stroker. im not a fan of n20 but its a great option nonetheless. you should beat the majority of cars you run into and it would be a blast.

    but if youre going FI the cobra is the better deal, in my opinion.

    if you want a 5.0, you can get those in mercury mountaineers.

    otherwise, keep the SS.
    why bother with a ford?

    supercharge the SS if thats all you want is a supercharger.

    a supercharged LS1 will eat any terminator if its built right.
    Plus it will stay together.
