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!

Pros

Sheer fun, the sound of the v8 from the dual exhaust alone was phenomenal.

Cons

It was an 80's 'stang,  They always looked too much like the 80's escorts.

Looks Aside, It Was Still A Mustang, Fast, Nimble And All Around A Thrill. — The car was so much fun to drive, the tranny was brand new install when I got it, but the radiator was at the end of it's life and the body needed some work. Lots of little tlc needed on the inside as well, except for the stereo which was very loud. Wish I could've owned it longer but it was stolen.

Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012

Overall this car is a beast for the price and for what it is, 300 HP for a V6 you can't beat it, or the price. Ford has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them. Read More
