My Awesomesupercooltotallyradical Car!!! — Would like to have better cup holders. There so close to the shift knob. If they could of put tray tables in the car I'd be a fat fat fat man. A neon sign in the window would be awesome so you could tell other drivers how bad their driving skills are.

Pros

I've owned three cars in my lifetime ... a 1982 Pontiac J2000, a 1987 Buick Somerset (my little Cadillac) and a 1998 Ford Mustang GT.  I loved my Buick, but I have to say that the Mustang has been the best car ever.

Cons

Cons?  What cons?  It's black. It's a convertible.  Need I say more?

It's The Ktzmeow! — It's been the best car ever!!! It's 16 years old and has over 90,000 miles on it. All I ever had to change were the fluids, tires, brakes and battery. She's getting old and a little "rickety", but she's still the best!

Great Car! — I Thought it was an amazing car overall just wasn't the type of car i'm used to driving and wasn't really too great for being a family car. Just wasn't all that i was hoping to accomplish when I bought it

Great Little Pony — Gotta say the 98 mustang is a great lil pony car. A true mustang all the way. Would for sure buy and cruse another one again. The performance and handling are great. You can feel the sports car in these pony cars.

fuel econ, appearance, build quality

Cons

long term durability, acceleration, top speed (~110)

Love/hate Relationship — The appearance inside and out has stayed immaculate through the years. Performance is decent enough, and it handles ok with the right set of tires. Predictable understeer at the limit characterizes its canyon-carving abilities, and without a limited slip diff, power oversteer with the V6 is unheard of. Quality-wise, the engine and tranny are strong, however I've been having a cooling issue for the past year and a half. I halfway blame it on the mechanic I've been using. He hasn't gotten it right YET. Other than that, its been 125k miles of mischief in that car, and it ain't over yet. Just wish
