Pros

mileage,powertrain,great learner

Cons

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

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

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!

A Great Small Muscle Car — For its small size it packed a walup. Was a greta car until the transmission went out. The previous owner didn't take care fo the poor thing. Great handling as well.

Foxybodies Rule — Basically this is the last generation mustang until 2005 that i care to acknowledge. Look sweet even when thrashed :) 302's are some of the best sounding V8's on the market. It was a beaten car so it didnt last my friend too long, but it wasn't bad overall.

Good mileage, fun to drive, every day driver, with sport!

Cons

Little on the small side, still not gonna win any races

Good Every Day Driver, With A Little Sport To Boot!! — Being the base model for this car, it exceeds every aspect you would think about. It's not gonna run a 10 second quarter, and you definately won't see even close to 200 mph (although i've seen about 140 as a top end), but it will put up a good fight at least. However, its shining moment, without a doubt, is when you tell it to turn. If you arent ready for it, the only thing keeping you in the car is the door. This car will just plain out-turn any other car i've ever had the privilage to ride in, with one exception. A dodge viper (but that's a whole new class of car). Overall, this is a good car. It gets just over 20mpg in town and mid to upper 20's out on the open road. It is a little small if you have more than one friend, however...

Have You Driven A Ford Lately? Don't!!! — Very stylish on the outside, but boy did the problems begin on the inside! After 1 blown engine, 2 blown trannys, 2 alternators, 1 A/C compressor, 2 dead batteries and a defective cruise control which almost KILLED ME on Interstate 85, I decided to put this little pony to rest!

Pros

Extremely fast, great sound. Looks stock. Blows away all but the very fastest new cars.

Cons

Stock braking kinda sucks. Understeer in corners, Oversteer under acceleration.

Fast As Hell — Modified Mustang with 400+ hp. Heads, Intake, Throttle Body, Exhaust, Supercharger, Mass Air. 3.55 Gears and much more... Sounds awesome.. pushes you back in the seat. 2nd gear is extremely fun. Lays rubber all the way to 3rd gear.

Awesome Power And Handling In A Small Package! — There's nothing like the sound of a 5.0 HO roaring to life when you turn the key. Add to that the ability to quickly drop the top, and presto, you have a true sports roadster.

Smooth Driver, Not A Monster But Adequate. — I owned one of these in 90 had it for five years, drove it mercilessly, (I was a kid) rarely checked the oil. It struggled along bravely without complaint until I melted a fuel line from an overheated block and it went up in a blaze of glory. I miss that car. I take much better care of my cars now.
