1991 Project Lx Hatchback — One of my favorite cars I have ever owned. Lots of fun to modify. 200,000 + miles. Bolt on heaven the car was lost to a house fire with my 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback 289 Hi-po 4 spd. Replaced it with a 91 hatchback that was once a 4 cylinder but converted to a 331 stroker, 5 spd TKO, 8.8, and Aerospace Engineering 4 wheel disc brakes. Griggs 4 link and Coil over + tubular a-arms. With Sparco blue/black bucket seats. It is a work in progress and will post pictures

Mustang 5.0, The Best Never Rest! — I have owned 3 other Fox body Mustangs prior to the one I currently own, I have always been a Ford fanatic, and have always been in love with Mustang 5.0's. They are the fastest cars you can buy for the money!! My current Stang is a mint condition Lx Hatch, I bought it 5 months ago. It has great performance/handling, it's rock solid, it's a very hot looking car inside/outside, the insurance rates are decent, the gas mileage is great for a performance V-8, it's a blast to drive.... Faaaassssstttt... I recommend Mustang 5.0's to anyone who is a American Muscle car lover...

Pros

Cheap perfomace, very reliable, realy fun to own

Cons

Bad paint, could use better braking.

55

It Cant Get Any Better. — I love my Car! The Car has seen mid-low 13 seconds in the quarter, braking could be better along with an addision of some new paint. Its fairly cheap to own as far as cost of replacement parts, and the actuall purchase price of this era of mustangs are really cheap. Gas milage ussally sees between 15-22 depending on how I drive it. Over all the car is a very fun car to own and drive!

1990 Ford Mustang Gt — This Mustang has Been bored out 30 over, heads ported, bumpstick, intake, shorty headers, crossover pipe, flowmaster mufflers and eibach sportline handling kit. It will put you in your seat and corners very well. The only down side its way to loud to sneak up on anybody!! Invested around 7K in it. Cheap thrills!!

Amazing power & torque when you build it right

Cons

made by Ford (lol)

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?!?

mileage,powertrain,great learner

Cons

rust,no exhaust from manifold back (not exactly a bad thing lol)

25

Solid Powertrain, Rust On Fenders And Decklid, 4cyl, 5spd, Red — It needs work on the body but the powertrain is rock solid. It has I believe 3.07 rear gears so it gets insanely good mileage, I'm eventually gonna swap in a 5.0 liter though

Cons

fuel economy
wet weather
turns

It's Mine! — Basically, its like this. Mustangs have long been the American tradition of preformance. These cars the "fox body mustangs," continue in that tradition. For the price, they are the best bang for your buck as far as preformance and parts. They are not however "traditionally pretty." The front of it kinda looks like a kid who has eaten a few to many paint chips and is a few cards short of a full deck. It does clean up however. Not in any way, shape or form practical, economical, or environmentally friendly. Its to loud, with the big gears I am shifting constantly, my friends can't fit in it, traction IS an issue, and turns... eh not so much. I love it to DEATH!

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
