Fun, Power, Long, Built To Protect You — Fairly rare as many are more attracted to the 60's model. Feels stronger with more medal in the exterior... I was originally looking for the earlier model but after going to many car shows and seeing no mustangs in this year I was more attracted to it. I like the feeling of space in the car and being able to have someone in the backseat if needed.

Awesomness

paying for gas lol (9 mpg driving nice)

Here's To Power — How can you go wrong with a muscle mach 1? People would ask if this thing was for sale on a weekly basis. Motors built to about 430hp. And it just sounds like a beast, the whole car rumbles at idle. Easy to work on too.

I Love This Car And Owned It More Then 30 Years — good performance 351 c 4v it's old but you might not think so ,and it has great lines in the body it's not great on gas but performance in the 70's gas wasn't a issue. while driving this old beast you get plenty of thumbs up.

I Love This Car. — This is a work in progress for me that I have spent the last couple of years building. It started out as a clunker but became reliable once I put some time and money into it. In the near future I will be completing and new custom built motor for this car that will give the car an impressive 700+ hp. This car was a blast to drive before and got decent gas mileage for the type of car it was and now after painting it and a new motor, it will be even better.
