Hey guys. It's been a long time since I have hung out on stangnet but I am now looking to get a convertible to enjoy with the family. What should I know and be looking for on these cars? I don't need more than 300hp but would do the Coyote if it's a much better engine. Would also do the 4.6 or the 3.7 for that matter and for sure want an auto as I'll have to drive this thing in Dallas traffic every day.
What advice would you guys have for me as an ex-ford mechanic from the 80-90s and no longer really connected with Mustang specifics,but still do all my own auto repairs?
