Hello everyone. I'm Anthony, I'm restoring a 1973 Buick GS455 w/ my dad(muscle-car). I am 13 on April 1st, and know sooooo much about cars.
I am thinking about getting a used ION Redline for my daily driver when I turn 16. It's either a Redline or some other muscle car. What do you guys think?

Thanks everyone. :)

Agreed you will end up in a totaly differnt car long before the time comes. Nice to see youth with a goal hell at 13 all I wanted was anything that was self powered car, truck, sled, bike or whatever so I didnt have to pedal/walk. Have fun with that project car.

Thanks guys, but I usually keep my mind on the one thing I want and try to work towards it. It WILL be either a Redline or another musclecar. So in 3 years, how much should an '05 Redline go for, about, that's in good shape? :) :confused:

Thank you.

According to Saturn, $11,797.50. You can get an estimated residual value on the Saturn web site. Go to the finance section and do estimated payments. If you choose a NY zip code (12211 works) you can select the balloon finance option (no leases in NY). Just use a base Redline since it won't matter that much. The down payment and trade-in can be zero. You don't care what the payment is, just the residual. The lease section should give you the same number, but last time I checked it didn't give anything but payment.
Residual is the trade-in value though. If you buy from a retailer you might pay considerably more. Actually, I think that number sounds high given the nature of the car and the fact that many of us paid only $14K - $15K for an 04.

i see the top lip of yours curled up too. It took about 2 mins to melt in the pod and about and hour to run all the lines and wires for the gauges. Pretty Easy if you ask me.
