Why did you sell the Terminator for a C5?

    I'd like to know, I hear of many people getting rid of there Terminators for C5's and C5z's. How come?

    Quite frankly a C5 Z06 is twice the car a terminator is in every aspect but straightline acceleration.

    Thats why I did it anyway. Now I seem to get every kid in a terminator throwing revs at me, even when they are in the oncoming lane.

    I never had a Termi. But my 96 was turning into an endless money pit.

    Always wanted a z06, insurance went down, gas mileage is better, more chicks staring, and I really like the whole car better. IMO the car is a better all around car for right around the same price.

    I had a 98 C5.. auto with 2.73 gears and FE1 suspension..

    now with the 03 Cobra.. I'll take the Cobra any day over the C5.. maybe a Z06 would be different, but not the regular one..

    maybe b/c they weren't brand loyal. Plus a c5z is the next best thing to get that is comparable to a cobra imo. About the same price so its a bargain.

    Maybe they did it because like Barack Obama says "Its time for a change".

    i dont like driving a cobra since it looks like all the 2384920 million other mustangs out there plus i think the c5's look better
