Nice Convertible...... — Fox bodied mustangs have been around since 1979 however they are still eye catchers and can be had for a reasonable amount of money. My mustang is a 1990 and is currently 17 years old. It still drives like new. This is my first convertible and I love it. The 5.0 V8 is very strong and the car handles very well for a convertible. Interior wind noise is a little high at highway speeds and thats to be expected being a convertible. Seating is comfortable however the seats don't go back far enough for tall people such as myself. Fit and finish is good but not outstanding. Overall this is a great affordable convertible that anyone can own and enjoy without going broke.

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

1990 Ford Mustang Gt Cobra — overall a very nice vehicle to just play with. Many add ons and not your average stang. Low maintenance not to many problems out of it. Great on straight aways but not so well in cornering unless you drift it. : )

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

Fun Car To Own/drive — Its not the prettiest car out there, not the most original, but its the best bang for your buck when it comes to a street muscle car. Lots of power, and it gets it to the road quite well. Not known for its handling though

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.
