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.

A Great Machine — In the 80's I owned a new 89 GT hatchback. What an awsome car. It was fast handled great, and was a chick magnet. Unfortunatly I was young, and I tore it to pieces. I then purchased a used 87 Gt, also an awsome car. It was stolen by a buddy "Imagine that". Drove off a boat dock in a lake. Where it sat for a week before a boat hit it backing into the dock. Once returned to me I began the work trying to save it. I drained all the fluids let it dry. When all was good I placed a battery in, and beleive it or not she started right up. I drove this car for another 2 years before I finally sold it. The car was still running strong the day they drove it away. I recently purchased a 87 Gt convertible. Thsi car is 100% original with 96,000 original miles. Once again another awsome car. She drives like a new one, and the motor is just as strong as a new one. All I can say about the late 80's mustangs WOW what a machine. May the live forever!!

Pros

RWD, sporty, steering was easier than most cars

Cons

slight rusting, not enough jump to the pedal (spark plugs)

45

Good First Car — It was a good first car. My dad is a mechanic so he was able to work on it for me when something went wrong. I loved the RWD and still find it easier to drive than FWD. The shocks were going and I could tell it needed new spark plugs. After almost 2 years with it, I had to sell it because my dad moved and the engine kept overheating. I miss it, but I have a more reliable car now.

Most Fun Ride Of My Life! — I drove the GT in Atlanta traffic and never had to worry about merging onto the expressways. That V-8 5.0 engine had more than enough power for any job. I averaged 25 mpg, although much of that was interstate driving. I had the 5 speed transmission, and it was so much fun to drive. I've been pulled over for speeding twice in my life, both times in this Mustang *LOL* I couldn't help it! Like Sammy Hagar, I can't drive 55!

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.
