Had This Car Since 1982, She's My Baby — Great performance, shreds tires easily, gas mileage sucks, 6.5 in town, 11 on the road. Really gets attention everywhere you go. Maintenance is a snap, just have to pull the engine to change spark plugs,LOL. Love this car! It's totally awesome!!!!

Pros

I love a convertible.  This car is an old warrior with great lines.  A real head turner.

Cons

None that I can think of.  It has been a very dependable car for a collectible "show car".

A Great Hobby Car With Classic Mustang Lines. — I bought it with 87K original miles on it from a little old lady (no, really) in 1998. Since then I have completely restored it and put another 55K miles on it. It has won 25 awards for excellence at various car shows and has been featured in a newspaper article as well as serving as a prop in a San Francisco Brides magazine pictorial (the bride and groom's getaway car) and being one of the month cars in a 2011 Mustang calendar. IMHO, this is the last of the first generation Mustangs that still looked like the original Mustang concept. The front end still has the deep set headlights in the front fender extensions characteristic of the breed, and the car still shares the same wheel base and floor pan with the original 1965 Mustang. In April, 2009 we took it on a caravan with Mustangs Across America from home (Fremont, CA then) to Birmingham, AL for the 45th anniversary of the introduction of the Mustang put on by the MCA (Mustang Club of America). The car did the whole 5,200 mile trip without a mechanical problem. We did get caught in a wind downburst on the way home east if Rawlins, WY, however, that sandblasted my poor baby and required about $7K in paint, chrome, stainless and glass. It also survived a snow storm in central Nevada on that trip that had us running in heavy white stuff from Battle Mountain, NV to Reno. The first photo is just before the sandblasting and the third photo is when it was repainted as a result. The car had zero rust when they stripped it to bare metal. It's a great car.

1969 Mustang Mach 1 — The best of the mustang classic design, excellent appearance, with a 351 w, that gave me all the torque i need, not the best handling, because still stock, the interior its beautiful because combine the look of the wood and chrome

Power, looks

Stalled alot, and its expensive to repair.

The Mach 1 — Grew up with this car. It has claimed the top spot as my all time favourite car. Lots of power, and its got a really mean look. argueably the second greatest thing, next to a Slayer concert, to cross my sights.

Classic Mustang — First car. Was bought my grandparents restored it twice. Last time setup for drag racing Had 415 hp and a 150hp nitrous shot. Sold to friend from highschool and he is driving as a pleasure vehicle. Love the looks but preferred the fast back may own fastback in the future.

Pros

My favorite year Mustang of all time.  I had one once when I was in college and will always think of it as the one that got away.  I sold it to buy my first Corvette (1970 Coupe) which seemed like a good idea at the time.  Would love to find another one someday.

Cons

I don't still have it.

1969 Mustang Mach I — Awesome styling & performance. One of the best examples of American muscle of all time. Small block Ford with plenty of power. Great handling car for its day. The '69 was the only year for this front grill treatment which always stands out in a crowd.

The Fun Of Driving Somethink Thats Is Outside The Box — Being restored so it will be a long way off driving for know, but it is getting there slowly as funds are a bit on the short side I surpose you could say its more a hobby then any thing else
