Pros

It was absolutely immaculate.

Cons

None, I just wish I still had it!

35

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.

The Power

It needs a tune

35

1990 Mustang Lx 5.0 — Overall, the car is fun to drive, but it could benefit from a tune. For a 20 year old car, the interior is almost immaculate and the seats are quite comfortable, the original paint is still very bright. The engine bay is also detailed nicely.

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

Pros

Fun to drive , easy to modify. looks good.

Cons

its an old car.

25

Upcoming Classic. — performance is ok.... just need to be modified. 225hp stock at the crank is not alot for todays standards. if you take care of them right and maintance them as recomended , they can last forever. but its a fun car to drive . the foxbodys are lightweight.... so i guess thats a better advantage compared to the newer style mustangs 1994-2004..

Pros

Accerlation

Cons

Poor weight distribution, weak chassis made weaker by decades of being beat on.

35

Great Example Of How Good Domestic V8s Can Be But Also A Great Example Of Crappy American Chassis — Quick acceleration but with the 55/45 F/R it understeered too much for corners and then when the rear shocks went out the handling got even worse. The T5 transmissions are weak, even the World Classes. I've got through 2 of them in just a couple years and I had a stock 5.0 with pulleys, custom (I guess you can call it that) AC delete, Air pump delete, and the only vacuum line left was the one going to the brake booster. Factory suspension is so high it literally looks like it has a lift kit so that was unappealing. I wanted to set the engine back 8-10" with a custom firewall, double wishbone front suspension with a decoupled torque arm rear suspension, Saleen air dam and side skirts with GT rear bumper cover and Cobra wing. And paint it with the Panda Tureno type paint job since the AE86 (Levin) and Foxbody Mustang share a lot in appearance.

Perfect — My Mustang was one of the best cars I have ever drove. Had all kinds of power, got good fuel mileage, and was an absolute blast to drive. Looked great and sounded even better. I hope to have another one some day.

Pros

The Feel for the Power and how light the car is.

Cons

Gas mileage.

65

Love It, But Need Money To Afford The Gas In It. — I love the handling, throttle response, the fact that its a stick and not automatic, the gas mileage is ok, and the joy of cruising with the top down. The 5.0 is great for power in every gear. So, I love it.
