I would go with the vert. It will appreciate more. Is it pretty stock. Also depends on where you live and what you want it for.

I'd go with the FB, Shelby it all the way then try and sell it on E-Bay for $50K as an undocumented GT-500KR! :)

I would say depends on your neighborhood and the size of your garage.Convertibles are definately nice, in nice weather, and draw I think more attention going down the street with the top down.However, when it is raining or just plain cold, they are not much fun to drive or heat.I have had both for many years, I always worry when parking a convertible somewhere about the top being sliced, accidentally or intentionally.With a hardtop or fastback, I feel more secure,and warmer thanks to that roof.Both are good choices, convertibles I think need a litle more care and maintenance- they need a garage more in my opinion, of course if you live in Southern California you don't have to worry.

I'd vote for the fastback. But, I've always had a weakness for them.

Tough choice.you gotta follow your gut on this one.The convertible would be hard to pass but I would get another fastback. I always liked the lines of the 67's

Convertible all the way!!!

It's easier to locate a fastback in good condition than it is a vert.

I disagree with you on your comment the convertable will appreciate more. 25 years ago you pretty much had to give away fastbacks compared to convertibles. They are finally being appreciated and their prices are appreciating, imho, faster than convertibles.This is certainly a debatable issue but this is my opinion.

Whether one buys the rag or the fastback is a very personal decision. Personally, I much prefer the fastbacks over the original convertibles and others are the other way around :)

Oh so now you say the fastback needs more work! No matter, I would still go for it.

Since you live in Alabama, go with the convertible. If you buy a fastback, you'll always wish you had a convertible on a nice day. That's why I have the convert.
