Mustang — Cool car, not very fast, sounds great. Fairly outdated 11 years later. Exhaust hangs very low on the car and hit most anything. eats up alternators like they were jelly beans. best part about it is the noise it makes.

Excelent — you get noticed at every light has an awesome sound and looks mean whistles from super charger just make you happy when you drive it could use a set of street slicks so you can get better traction not a good wet weather driver.

Pros

Plenty of power and performance straight from factory. Plenty of room for upgrades.

Cons

Sucks down premium fuel like no tomorrow

In A Nut Shell — Plenty of power and performance straight from the factory. The 32 4.6L V8 leaves more than enough room for upgrades and perfromance. Only downside is it guzzles down premium fuel like there is no tomorrow. Overall it is an amazing car that any kid my age would love to own. Very fast and very powerful.

2004 Ford Mustang — I liked the car it was easy to handle and learn how to drive in. Very easy to park into to small spaces. Didn't handle in snow very well. The convertible top was nice in the summer.Really enjoyed owning the car overall.

My Yellow Pony — My 2004 Ford Mustang GT Convertible 40th Anniversary package was my dream car made truth. I loved every single thing from this car. Great power and reliable every where we went. Just is not the car when you have a family with small children, unless you're planning to use it as a 3rd vehicle or just a Hobby car. Love my Yellow pony and will never forget it.

Pros

Fun to drive, handles well, and has "giddy-up" when you want/need it!  

Cons

The only downside is for the backseat riders. Not for 4 large-sized adults going any distance.

Every Girl Wants A Pony To Love! — I could carry my full drumset in this car, much to people's amazement. (Most in the trunk, bass & floor tom in the backseat.) It is more fun than a "practical" car, and more practical than you'd think a sportscar would be. Never gave me a lick of trouble, always very reliable but also said "fun". All I had to do was take her in for regular oil changes and manufacturer's maintenance, and she did her job well toting me around. Just like the namesake, the Mustang. It's probably the best named model of a car ever!

Love This Car! — Not a daily driver. Extremely comfortable as long as you are not in the back seat. This care is awesome to drive. Could get away from you if you are not careful. Don't buy this car to commute. You will get into trouble on the interstate.

Pros

Ford put retro touches all around, including the famous shaker hood. It is a serious blast from the past!

Cons

The only real downside to the engine that it cant take as much boost as a 03-04 cobra 4.6 dohc

Very Good Bang For Your Buck! — The interior could be a little quieter, especially at highway speeds and with strong acceleration. Not as powerful as the Cobra. If you crave the most hp & plan to go 11's as fast (and as cheap over purchase price) as possible, get an '03/'04 Cobra. If you want a lighter-feeling, easier to drive car that will go 12's without modding it to death, then get a Mach 1.

A — This car is Great, fantastic power! It is extremely comfortable and the Clutch is perfect. Its easy to drive and the Shaker is a huge throwback to the old school machs, and its functional! I prefer the cobra style bumper though

American Muscle Iconic — I really liked this car. Bought it for my wife and she really enjoyed driving her sports car. A great sounding "rumble" when starting with quick acceleration. Just a true American sports car. Mustang is an American icon sports car.
