Pros

When you rip it down the road, wow does it sound beastly, but its that moment when you look at the speedometer and you soak in disappointment when you notice your only going 40 mph! HAHAHA That happens a lot!

Cons

The suspension sucks horribly, and the handling is terrible, I could flip this car so easily it ain't funny...

If It Was Nicer, I Would Definitely Show It Off More, Trust Me! — This has the lousy 4-cylinder crappy motor and 5 speed transmission, rear wheel drive which is fun fun fun! It still runs like it used to 2 years ago when it was my daily driver...yea i trusted this thing to get me places haha but it did the job thats all that counts. Also this car has a mass amount of potential, trust me, the ideas rolling through my mind are awesome that I want to do to this and one day I will!

1987 Mustang Gt — performance is amzing but finding stock replacement parts at the local auto stores can be a fun filled adventure. finding parts online is the only way to go. car handles great for being over 20 years old. but the interior is timeless and has that nostaglic feeling that will take you back to the late eighties. for being an automatic, its still a fun and great car to drive.

Another Failed Attempt With Ford — Nothing much to tell about this one. On one hand, it was in fairly decent shape, including the convertible top, but on the other hand, it had problems left and right. I think someone put it best on a graphic of Ford's logo "At least they circled the problem." I'm not a big fan of Ford cars, but their trucks are excellent. It just needed a lot of work that I couldn't afford.

Great Car Of My Youth — Best car I ever owned. I wish I could find another Mustang with the same qualities. The car was so easy to maintain. Oil changes could be done in 10 minutes or less. Brakes were simple. The mustang was also fantastic on MPG.

Awesome — Like mentioned, I've owned it since new, and just replaced parts as they failed or went bad. Performed half the maintenance myself to save some money. 25 years later and it's still part of our family. I'll never sell it.

Once Blacky is up and running, he will be a 8sec car and very sexy!

Cons

His fuel consumption will be down because he is going to be built out the yang!

Very Sexy,masculan, And Hard To Catch! — I love my Mustang. When he is up and running and I get the new paint job on him, people will be drooling. LOL! The only bad part is the fuel. He is will get poor fuel mileage. But, I LOVE HIM ANYWAY!
