Pros

Sporty but still practical. This is my sixth Fox body, third T-top car. Great for two person trips with back seat folded down, but gas mileage sucks. Also no good in snow. Easy to DIY maintenance and repairs
.

Cons

Poor fuel economy, poor in snow. Uncomfortable stock seats.

Practical Toy — Sporty, cheap roomy interior for sporst car. T-Tops are more secure than a convertible. I owned a Corvette and the Targa top was a royal pain. T-tops are fast and easy on and off and don't take up much cargo space.

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

Cons

Gas mileage not great

Great Car, Fun To Drive — Been in the family since new, always reliable for me, slick shifting automatic transmission, great all around car. Smooth running V-8 power, power steering and brakes make for a easy to drive car. GT 350 stripes lets people know its special limited production.

Primary Use: Family transportation

THEY'RE ARENT ANY

Cons

EVERYTHING, THIS CAR IS JUNK

45

Do Not Buy One Of These — The biggest peace of junk ever built, i would feel cooler driving a pinto, mine had a 2.4 4cylinder, they are slow, bad on gas, uncomfortable, sound crappy, have no room, they are uglier than all get out, i was embarrased to be seen in it, and only owned it for 3 days before i traded it off on a wrecked neon lol

Pros

Damn reliable, cheap parts, easy to mod and finally no one expects it.  

Cons

Flexes like a wet noodle and has the potential to rust.

A 20fter That Most People Dont Think Of. — I've always loved reading about these cars and how Ford tries unusual things at certain times in the past (SHO, Edsel, SHOgun). The car has adjustable KONIs all around, but the rears have to be removed to be adjusted. This is a pain, but they are in an easily accessed area. The motor is a gem, all American pig iron. Can easily boost it to 20psi and no problems(trust me i've tried). Takes easy to mods because it was made in 1983, they didnt have the technology like we have now and the 20+ extra years of people fiddling with them. Plus boosted Ford motors can handle pretty much anything you throw at them, just look at cobra motors, lightening motors, and GT motors.

1984 Ford Mustang Svo Set The Standard For Today's Performance Revolution! — This is the car that ushered in the computer age for American performance cars! It came stock with electronic fuel injection, turbo charger, intercooler, 5 speed manual transmission, leather interior, fog lamps, spoilers, wings, alloy wheels, high performance, low profile tires and four wheel disc brakes. The SVO could outrun most V-8s and deliver mileage of 20 plus mpg, handle and brake with the best of the day and the looks insured you didn't see yourself coming and going. This car is not the easiest to drive, but it is does reward a driver that masters it with a fun ride. It is the first American car with 4th generation computer controls and sensors that allowed for good mileage, great reliability, great performance and low emissions! The engine came with forged internals to withstand the rigors of turbo charging and mine has 140K miles on it and it still running strong. With minor modifications, it puts out 300 hp at the rear wheels with a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder motor. Did I mention that 2 teenagers have learned to drive using this car? Amazing. So much so that my first new car since I purchased my SVO in 1984 came as another Mustang in 2005!

Watching "super-cars" get smaller in the rear-view mirror!

Cons

It's not street legal.

Fast, Fun, And Exciting To Drive! — My fox-body Mustang is used exclusively as a track- day/race car. It has a complete Griggs Racing GR40 World Challenge [non-SLA] suspension. It handles as well as just about anything else on the track... I just need to improve work on the dummy behind the wheel, and a little (okay a lot) more horsepower would be nice! The fun factor with my Mustang is off the charts!

Cons

220hp V-6 automatic

Not Bad For My First Car — great car for a v-6, when the cash starts flowing then i either want to twin turbo a 3.8L or or drop a 5.0L with a roots style supercharger on it
