Mach 1 — It has it's flaws. It's over 30 years old so it's understandable. It's got good power and terrible gas mileage as you can imagine lol. The pipes on this car are originals and still sound great. It'll wake the neighbors with ease lol. Original 351 Cleveland 5.8 V-8 monster. New everything pretty much. This car has had it's problems but overall it's been an amazing vehicle.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Historical value, breathtaking sounds, beautiful styling, quick handling, and rapid acceleration

Cons

Not the most powerful Mustang engine, alternator sucked, no vapor lock system

My First Car — I learned how to work on cars with the Mustang, doing tune-ups and maintaining a clean running engine and clean bodywork. The 302 V8 engine emitted the sweetest of engine sounds, provided the starter solenoid, carburetor, spark plugs, battery, transmission, and alternator were replaced.

Older cars need more care; oh, well!

1973 Mustang Convertible — My dad's car that he bought new in March of 1973. It's in great shape with 43,000 original miles. Once you drive a convertible, you don't want to go back to a hard top.
