Needs Some Work To Be Great — This mustang was my first manual and it's overall just incredibly fun to drive. it doesn't have great performance, but it would be incredibly easy to drop in a 302, a 5-speed tranny, and a 9-inch rear end. i love the way that 70's muscle cars look and in my opinion, this mustang is one of the coolest rides ever

Pros

It's extremely fast and there are not many around.

Cons

It needs some body work.

Keeping It Forever!!! — 0-60 mph 3.5 seconds, 1/4 mile 11.8 seconds. This car is quick. It has 430 flywheel HP and drilled and slotted front brakes. Handles very well. It needs body work and paint. This car is very fun to drive!!!

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

Alot of things

It Was A Typical First Car — Alright, first thing you need to know about my old mustang II is that it wasnt in that great of condition. I payed $850 for it. The engine wasnt that of a typical mustang, it was a 2.3L 4 cylinder that only pumped out around 92 horses. The options were pretty basic in the car, it didnt have AC, power windows or anything. It wasnt fast at all, but i do have to admit it was kinda fun to drive. Nothin big in the performance area at all, but it had character, and it was fun to see the looks i got from people when i drove it around town.

not much

Cons

the trunk rusted out?

Mustrat — I was lucky to get this inline 6 cyl little car over 80 mph, even tho that probally was a good thing at the time, being under 18 years old. It wasn't roomy at all, and didn't have enough power to go thru snow

Pros

Everything!!!

Cons

Poor gas milage

35

My Dream Car — This car has been my dream car for as long as I can remember, and now I have realized my dream. It has been everything I ever hoped for, and more. It is in mint condition, taking into consideration how old it is. It performs like it was made yesterday, and I don't think I can even describe in words exactly how fun it is to drive. Only downfall would be the poor gas milage, as expected from an engine capable of pulling a solid steel frame from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds.
