Decent Power

Cons

Plastic Intake

Great Car, Bad Intake — Great car. Bought car with 85,000 miles on it. Now with 104,000, it sits in my garage waiting to be sold because I can't afford so many cars. Replaced intake gaskets and now the notorious plastic intake needs to be replaced. Darn 4.6 liter plastic intakes. What was Ford thinking??

Pros

She'll bite your ass if you dont move

Cons

Doesn't kick up enough dust for you to eat on her way out!!!

My Sexy Sweetheart!!! — My car is amazing, has a bit of dings in it but runs smooth and boosts at every chance she gets. Her power can be worked on but she gets up and moves. She has alot of miles on her but shes an older car and she seems to like it every step of the way.

Everything

Cons

No negatives

My First Car — No racecar but a blast to drive. I bought her with 36,000 miles on her and she now has over 130,000 and she never broke down on me. I would still drive her everyday. There could be a few more horses comming out of her 3.8L V-6 engine ( stock I think is only 150). She has a decent bit of body role and is a one tire fire, but I bought the car for 12,000 dollars so I can not ask for much more. She was the perfect first car and I will probably keep her forever.

Everybody has one

Sn95 Mustangs — Car has decent power for the price these cars cost. I love driving it gas milage isnt to bad for being a V8 but thats the price you pay when you have one. Turned heads with the loud exhaust and black bullit rims.

97' Gt Convertible — For starters, its a great, cheaper way to make power. And when purchasing a first car as a 16 year old, pony cars is what came to mind. After owning it for a while, and driving an assortment of cars, it has a Mustang-esk heavy nose that zaps alot of the fun out of driving the thing. The sound is great, but handling needed alot of work. To combat that i added H&R Racing Springs, KYB Adjustable Dampers, Auto Power Rollcage (to stabilize the flexiflyer chassis), Steeda Subframe Connectors, Steeda Strut Tower Brace, UPR Castor Camber Plates, 13" Cobra Brakes up front, and the assortment of power mods, Intake, ignition, ud pullies, exhaust. After the modding was done, the car was decent in the handling department, but if i were to buy any pony car ever again (including camaros and firebirds), it would be an 04' SVT Cobra. The nose is even heavier, but they have a ton of power, so it makes it diverts your attention from the negative. My biggest complaint of all pony cars is the absolutely dirt chassis. It makes cornering feel like something you just do to get to a straight away rather than trying to extract all you can out of each corner. I have yet to drive a new mustang or camaro tho, so we'll see. Based on the track Record of both GM and Ford, i dont expect to see much though

Pros

powerful, affordable muscle car - good acceleration - easy to modify

Cons

stock V6 rims - dual exhaust needs work

35

Ford Mustang - Pony Power — I love my car, she is perfect for what I need! I am someone who needs power but is on a budget. Luckily, I found my '97 V6 for $3,600. The gas is what you'd expect compared to a 4 cylinder but compared to a V8, it's heaven. I get American muscle without the debt for gas. It hasn't been too awful to maintain either but there are always parts that you want to buy.

Just Another Mustang! — I am not a Ford person and this just became another Ford problem for the owner. Although the car looks amazing, the engine was such a hassle like many other Fords.
