1966 Ford Mustang — Owned the car for the last 21 years.Rebuilt engine, transmission, interior, suspension, steering, air-conditioner, cooling system, drivetrain, trunk, exterior chrome, brake system - too many new parts to list. With newer style radial tires it drives and handles better than new -very tight steering and road feel.

I Love My Car It's A Dream Come True — The thing I liked about this car is that it's a head turner and a comfortable ride for the age of the car and the thing I dislike about it is that it's missing that roar of a muscle car.

My Caroline — This is my summer/fall weekend car I love everything about her. Its not the fastest but I don't care I love to just cruise to some oldies and escape into my time capsule. I love the feel and ride of a classic car if you want all the amenities and up to date gadgets this is not the car for you. It has power drum brakes and manual steering that's all I need I'm not picky. not much room but like I said with the windows down radio blasting who cares!

Pros

Fun car to drive that always gets questions about it's history, power ect.   Parts are available at most local auto part stores and are inexpensive.  Nice to travel back in time when switch gear is metal instead of plastic, and v8s rules the roads

Cons

Not very safe by today's standards.  Non fuel injected cars are not for everyone, Fuel economy will not match the same size car built today.  Modern advances in A.C., defrost, Sound systems, seat design will not be a fit for all.  The same sound I love about a rumbling V8 some people do not want to hear.

1966 Mustang A Trip Back In Time And A Reminder Of What We Do Well Now — The Mustang is stable and steady on the road, it just huuummms along. Easy to set back and enjoy the drive. Not a car you get in a hurry to get anywhere in. But a pleasing experience. Driver coupes can be had well under $10,000 and fastbacks will start around that number.

Pros

It's a badass old school muscle car! Good power, good looks, and tons of fun to drive! Having an old Mustang practically leaves me with infinite options as far as customization and aftermarket parts.

Cons

It isn't the most comfortable ride ever. But who needs comfort anyway!?

1966 Mustang Fastback — I like everything about this car! The looks, the sound, the feel, it's all exactly what I wanted out of an old muscle car. It's fun to cruise with my friends and it leaves me with something to play with on the weekends!

My Ole 'stang — This has been my car since high school, and I've had the pleasure of driving it across the country as well as using it for an every day driver. It's stock (almost) with a 289 4V, 4 spd, and dual exhaust. It has been idle for a few years now waiting on new ball joints, and I plan to replace all of the bushings and rubber to improve the handling.

True classic, fun to drive.  Lot of new and reproduction parts available.  Always a eye catcher.always holds its value.   Easy to work on.

Eye Catching Fun Car To Own And Drive — These cars are so versatile. They can be the show car you always wanted or the daily driver to work or the race car you take to the drags to the 6 calender first car you want to give kids . Either way you have a cool car!

Fun — Everyone knows that a 66 GT Convertible is just plain fun. To review an American icon any further than those that precede me would just be silly. I bought the car for $250, 30 years ago and spent the subsequent 3 years painstakingly restoring it myself. I'm pretty proud of it in case you can't tell.

Classic 1966 Ford Mustang — Fun car, used primarly for car shows, cruising, and a toy to play with on the weekends. Definitly not a daily driver, it would take alot to make this car a comfortable daily car. Even with its short comings its sill a V8 289 powered classic mustang, what more is there to say.
