Been a while since I've been on here. Sold the 04 6 back in May. Owned it since new, was a secondary fun car since 2010, kept awesome care of it and was reluctant to sell it, but I wanted to make room for a true fun car (2 seat convertible). So i sold to a couple buy a car for their kid.

Fast forward to this morning and I came across a pic with the VIN# I used for the ad and, out of curiosity, thought I'd Google the VIN. Below it what I found........... If he was wearing is seat belt he should prob be fine, but damn... only lasted 5 months. Sad to see after 13 years of ownership.

Wow. That is sad to see and a hard hit. Hope the kid is OK and nothing long lasting. Looked like a beautiful 6 that was pass along from what is left.

I've seen that more than I would care to; well cared for first owner car gets sold and promptly trashed. I know my 05 is in good hands now, purchased by a true enthusiast.

No cracks in the windshield indicate his head stayed where it needed to be and the bags did what they were designed to do.

That still stinks though. I came across my old 6 a couple years after selling it and the person didn't seem to even realize cars need some attention to stay nice :(

Seeing neglect brings out more rage than a simple wreck.

I traded a 1988 Mustang 5.0 LX notchback that I spent 2 years putting back together for my 6 three years ago. I needed a 4dr car more than a toy so I took the plunge. Not even 2 months later I found out the idiot blew the motor in the first 2 weeks and then started parting it out. This was a solid car, I had $8K in it just in parts as I bought it as a bare shell. Broke my heart the idiot did that to it, but I still have my 6 at least.
