Classic Muscle Car — Out of 317000 Mustangs produced in the year 1968, Ford only produced 4118 California Specials and I've got one of them. This car is amazing in every way. Runs and drives like a newer car. The factory installed A/C works and blows cold.

Pros

Love the sound, the look, and the feel driving this car. Thumbs up all the time.

Cons

I hate that I can't drive the car all the time, every day.

Love It! — Excellent cruising car, car shows, go for ice cream with the family even if it's an hour away. Excellent reliability. Very easy to do maintenance work on, Lots of leg room in the front seats, because it's a GT it has extra sway bars and stiffer springs so it has great handling and with disc brakes it stops great also.

Pros

It's quite rare and helps you stand out in a sea of 'Stangs.

Cons

It will leave you wanting the performance that modern cars have made you grown accustom to.

Gt/cs, From West To East Coast — As any review is subjective I'll try to curb my bias. When it comes to performance it will leave you wanting for more in all categories. It is still more exciting to drive than a modern econobox probably due to the sense of raw communication with what is going on around you. It is a semi- reliable vehicle with a slew of aftermarket parts to keep the cost of ownership down. Having a vehicle with a production number just over 4,000 you're almost guaranteed to be the only one around with one.

This Is American Muscle At It's Finest — This is one of the first cars I ever owned. I had a coupe as a kid and when this one came available I jumped on it. There are not too many people wanting to start a on a project car these days. I knew that this one would be worth every penny. I am also doing as much of the work as possible with my sons. We recently purchased a 67 coupe as well and my older son will work on that one during the day when he is not in school. I can wait to see them finished.

Pros

My mustang is awesome.

Cons

Burning Rubber

25

Eat My Dust. — Car get 18mpg in the city and 24 on highway. its a boss 302 with domed pistons going into 289heads with an isky cam/springs and lifters. 4brl 650 carb. lots of horse power. Many repairs have been done, engine rebuild, shock tower, suspension all around, wiring harness. Its a very nice looking car, charcole in colour. with all the vibe from the 60's. Parts are generally expensive for the car. The car is very fun to drive if you like making lots of noise and burning rubber.
