It's well used. It should have lived a better life.

1990 Mustang '7-up Car' — Performance: 20 yrs old, still does what it is supposed to do. Build Quality: Mine has seen better days. The poor thing was pretty neglected by some previous owner long ago, so it has rust issues. It does rattle quite a bit when you hit bumps. Appearance: Very pretty color, green and white is a nice looking combo. As old as it is it still gets alot of attention when I drive it. Cost of Ownership: It hasn't been too bad. If I really wanted to restore it, it would cost a fortune. It has had a few problems, broken brake line, bad tie rods, lost my smog pump. These were not costly repairs though. It drinks alot of gas but all of my cars do. I don't drive it alot anyway so gas is no big deal. Fun Factor: A+!! It is fun for certain. I feel like I'll always have to have a convertible after owning this car. I should probably sell the car, but so far can't bring myself to do it b/c it is fun to drive. My car is not for those who like refined cars. This thing is just nasty, but I actually like it that way. LOL

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

Quick, And Fun To Drive — Fast car, Strong engine. Only mod is the flowmaster exhaust. Transmission began to go out but its not a big deal. Expensive to insure, but is always fun to drive. This car has never failed to start, fires up every time!

Solid performance, great aftermarket support, easy to work on

Cons

Stock 5-speed tranny isn't the best, rear drum brakes, four lug bolt pattern

1990 Ford Mustang Lx 5.0l — Love this car, long live the five oh! Great styling inside and out. Solid performance, very enjoyable to drive. While the car is getting dated in performance it's very upgradeable with strong aftermarket support and it's easy to work on. These cars are getting rare where I live so it's nice to have a Mustang everyone else doesn't have. I will never get rid of this car.

Gorgeous, and fun to drive

Cons

Slow, kind of bare bones on the interior

35

2.slow But Who Cares? — This is my girl. A quality vehicle with a surprisingly comfy interior. The 4 banger is slow, but gets good mpg and is a great platform to build off of, let it be a motor swap or boost. So far I haven't had any problems, but I'm gonna be safe nad replace the brake pads because I can feel em going, and changing the tranny to 5 speed before this one blows.

Pros

fast and cheap,love the look on the guys drivin 40k cars when i go by and you cant break them

Cons

stock gearing is way too high. by math itll do over 200mph with a long enough straight and enough power,where you gonna do that?a rear gear change is a must,still way more top end than youll ever need and lots more power all the way there. could also use some suspension upgrades to corner better but good tires do wonders

I Love The Fox Bodies! — Great handling, plenty of top end and surprising acceleration despite being a AOD. Needed some TLC when I got it, but still very pleased with it. Very fun to drive and not to, to bad on the wallet in gas.

V8 in light car

Cons

Nothing

25

Very Quick — Quick car. Who wouldn't want a small light car with a V8 in it. It's a mean looking car that moves with a quick step down on the pedal. Black on black on black looks amazing. Sounds gorgeous too. Bottle fed baby.
