As I Said, it was my son's car and I keeped the car, and I'm so glad I did, I found out that it was the 25th. Edition, I had all the id's removed ( like the 5.0 chrome tag ), and had a great paint job .. all black. I do not like convertibles, I've been told that the frames are weak, so no I've never owned any of the other Mustangs. I never got the details of what my son did to our Mustang, but it's Fast

Pros

Powerful car with a 5 speed and a convertible.

Cons

Rust damage can ruin any car, but if not maintained these cars will rot apart.

Fun Car To Drive And Great Design. — Car had good acceleration for a 302 HO 5 speed. Braking was great and handling was good. The rust monster had gotten ahold of it though and the unibody was rotting apart so I had to get rid of it. The convertible was great when it was down, but with just over 100 thousand miles on it the automatic top motor was shot and made it difficult to get the top up and down. I love the styling of the mid 80s to early 90s Mustangs though convertible or not. Gas mileage was not too bad considering what it was, but as with most cars or trucks after 100k they start wanting more and more money to repair odds and ends. Well worth the money to buy one of these in my opinion.

the limited car effects

Bottum Line Is This Car Is Fun For Me — the power is good thinking about a supercharger than again it is fuel injection...it does need repairs to the doors(passangerside needs replaced) and passanger side fender...the inerior needs to be cleaned driverside seat is busted and the exterior needs painting...with the engine rebuild and almost all parts replaced cost and maintenance is low for now but the fun factor is cool its got power

It was absolutely immaculate.

None, I just wish I still had it!

Totally Amazing Car — I wish i could give more than 5 stars on appearance, this car was absolutely gorgeous. 54k original miles. Paint and interior were absolutely flawless, I'd challenge someone to find a ding in this paint!! The car also ran fairly well for what it was, a heavy pig AOD GT Vert. It ran a best of 13.98 @ 98mph on the stock radials. Mods were: Ford Motorsport ceramic coated shorty headers, stainless off road h pipe, flowmaster catback, pulleys, cold air, 75mm Pro M mass air, 3.73 gears, hughes 2500 stall, performance automatic valvebody, and weld draglite front runners.

Pros

12.90s with bolt ons? Ive never seen it done again in person by a non stripped daily driver.

Cons

Its gone. Thats the only part. I wish id have spent money on the transmission, axles and a decent differential.

12 Sec Bolt On 1990 Gt — This was an awesome car! Daily driver, It had Stock Heads, Cam and Intake. With bolt ons only (ie. 3.73 gears, full exhaust, intake spacer, fuel pressure regulator, control arms, subframe connectors, pulleys etc...), it went 12.99 @ 105.05mph on M/T ET Streets. It also had very nice gray interior and very nice original black paint.

Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

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
