Pros

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

Ford red paint sucks

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

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.

Best Car Ever — Fox Mustang = best car ever. Easy to work on, cheap to upgrade, looks good from every angle. One of the last cars from the time when owning a fast car meant knowing how to drive a fast car. I love it.

TINY ENGINE BAY!!!

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.

It is kinda old and most people think its ugly

0 To 60 In 1990 — It goes fast and it was cheap....It makes a good platform for a drag car and thats what i intend to do with it....it does start to suck down some serious money when you start modding though. go get one

347 Stroker with well over 450 ponies!

Cons

Paint could be better, but hey looks great for the first year!

1990 Mustang Gt 347 Stroker — My 11 second flat Mustang. 347 Stroker fully built to the maximum & Giggle gas for those times when you just need to outrun the piggly wiggly's ! Fully SN95 four wheel disc brake conversion with proportioning vlave. 17" Black Bullit wheels, 4 corner adjustable coil over suspension with tubular K member. Meticously rebuilt with the highest standards. Next winter she'll get her body done and some more interior work too!

V8 in light car

Cons

Nothing

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.

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
