Awesome — Amazing car, mustang ii front ends were ahead of their time and the car has decent handling and is quite quick do to them weighing in at about 3000lbs, fun car to drive and to go cruising in. No matter what other people may think this is the last of the ponys to have the same attributes as the original mustang.

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

If You Don't Mind Getting Dirty, It Is One Of The Perfect Cars — After I am done with my planned resto-mod, my Mustang II should have about 380 HP and 380 Ft-lb of torque. It will be costly for gas, but I think the fun of driving the car will out weight the costs.

My Fav Ford — Being a 1978 King Cobra Mustang, one of less that 400 made only in 1978, is a very fun little car to own and drive. It is red and a little beat up right now but I have all the parts i need to restore it back to original white with blue rally stripes.

Greatest Car — OK, well definitely the best first car anyone could ask for, and I plan on keeping it only because it's frikken amazing. It's great on gas, and eventually I will be getting the rear window louvers, rear spoiler, and I already own the chin spoiler, just gotta put it on. ;)

302 4 speed car

Cons

not sure

What — Rebuilt the 302 and had a 4sp trans. I bought this from a friend of mine. Fun little car even though most don't consider it a mustang. The value is starting to climb on these. If I were to get another one it would be the cobra model.

Don't Be Fooled By The Appereance — I love the way it sounds and runs the 302 boss engine that it has almost brakes my neck it prrrs like a tiger the inside leather interior just makes it so much better. a new paint job and some nice wheels wouln't hurt the car.

just about everything, good on gas, sporty, cute and easy to drive

Cons

it's small

Gi-gi The Little Ghia — I love this little car, she's a Ford so you know she was built well. The engine still runs great, she's not bad on gas. She's a small car but the interior is quite roomy. She's a car that's very easy to drive, everything is basic. She's easy to work on and you gotta love the color! The body is nearly perfect, really no rust at all! It's neat because no one really owns these cars anymore so you get alot of looks when driving.
