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

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

My American Muscle Contribution — This is the 1990 limited 7up edition Mustang. It was originally a poopy automatic, but had that changed to a 5 speed & its a night & day difference. Really woke the car up. This summer I'm hoping to get the top replaced (its beyond shot), & putting a better motor in it. I love rolling along about 15-20 mph & stabbing the gas; it puts the car sideways. How many econoboxes, Hondas & Pruius'es you know that can do that?!?

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.)
