A Very Easy Car To Work On And Parts Are Fairly Cheap. Just Wish Mine Was In A Little Better Shape — My car is a 1997 and thats the first year of the 4.6 and don't think they had all the kinks worked out yet. Slowly I am fixing everything that was wrong with it when I bought it about a year and a half ago.

not fast enough

Its A Great Fun Car To Drive — its a great all around car but it could be a little faster. the 5 speed is a must and it has to have a nice sounding exhaust. another must is a different hood, cobra front bumper and different rims

Good Car For Daily Driver — Good little car to get around in. Got a decent amount of power, and sounds awesome with its flow master exhaust. It's a five speed manual trans. with a 4.6 L engine. within a couple years, it will have a 383 in it though. The body has been fixed up since the picture was taken. The front bumper is fixed, but there are minor scratches on the body. eventually the body will be all repainted.

Have Fun! — What I love the most about this car is that it is not so expensive, relly easy to upgrade, good torque and most of all it does'nt break! You almost can't find a better deal if you want to ride in the low 13s daily driver on the 1/4 strip without coming back home on a towing!

I Miss It. — For a 97' the ac and heat worked reallllllly good and fast. I wish it had a sunroof though. The interior was gray... would have been better if it was black leather. The cars pretty loud (from being old) compared to a new car thats quiet.

Pros

Enexpensive fun muscle car

Cons

3.8L v6 is fairly low powered compared to vehicles nowadays, and it weighs alot so power to wieght ratio not very good. Lots to upgade to make competitive with newer cars.

35

Mustang! — Its a great car to own, if you like and are interested in owning a muscle car without the extreme price, these are great cars to get. build quility pretty good. car runs forever with very few needs for repairing. Has a pretty good interior and exterior styling. Lots of options for possible upgrading.

Pros

Ragtop with a V8

Cons

Not a lot of quality for a muscle car

Cheap Fun — The best way to sum up the old girl is... It was was it was. It was a fun car with the ragtop, tire smokin V8, leather seats and all that... and it was fast. Never found top end, but I know at 130mph it had more on the table. For being a GT model I was surprised at low quality parts Ford used. The plastic intake manifold surpised me when it came undone one day. But hey, it was a sweet car for cheap money.

Very Dependable. — Love my car. It has really good handling. It seems to have good quality, the person that had it befor me rear ended someone, but it was an easy at home fix and it passed inspection just fine. It has good gas mileage and is easy to maintain.
