    My 1965 Mustang Coupe — The acceleration is really good, but does have a "personality" as a lot of older cars seem to do. It does have a slight "dead spot" in the carburetor where it hesitates at times. Brakes are very good, and there is some "play" in the steering. It has needed some minor repairs here and there, but mostly because of wear and tear and age. The appearance to me is of potential, but it does need a lot of body work. This car really is dependable since my dad and I rebuilt the 6-cylinder engine over 9-10 years ago. It needed some major transmission work only because we put the wrong transmission fluid when we first got it. The cost of ownership varies on older cars, but in general, the Mustang is one of the cheapest ones to own, as long as you know how to do your own repairs instead of paying someone else. This car is an absolute blast to drive, and is a popular and much desired car to own!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good performance an dependability

    Cons: if you don't know how to do your own maintenance and repairs, it can be very expensive and a real headache.

    1965 Ford Mustang — My 1965 Ford Mustang handles well on turns. It's manual transmission with a hurst racing shifter, allowing for a quick shifting and a lot of speed. It has a 302 engine not standard 289. It's a lot of fun and it an eye-catcher.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Handling is great and appearance is awesome.

    Cons: Nothing.

    I Love The Classic Mustang Style, Just Need To Rework The Mechanicals — Tough to rate this car, I haven't ever driven it. It was given to me as a gift and so far I've replaced the floors, trunk, right front frame rail. Rust prone cars that require alot of updates to bring them up to modern standards, I don't think I would ever drive/own one that was original.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Styling, popularity=ease of finding parts, can be made into whatever you want it to be

    Cons: in stock condition suspension is a poor design, ditto steering, safety factors also

    Dont Try To Buy Mine, Find Your Own! — There is nothing to dislike. She is my childhood friend, we grew up together. I upgrade, fix,alter and share her with family and friends. She is my daily driver for my short 5 mile commute to work, rain or shine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Any reason you drive a car to enjoy here on earth

    Cons: If you were raised with a Ford taboo, and afraid you will get a disease like blue blood!

    Amazing! — 0-60 in 7s with the stock 3 speed auto, hits 65+ in 1st; 90+ in 2nd; no idea on the top end but it's above 100. Theoretically .79 Gs cornering, solid feel, amazing throttle response, needs minor bodywork on the rear fender, styling is amazing, attention-grabbing, 12 mpg average assuming odometer is right, parts are cheap because of the popularity of the car, ridiculously fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: what's not to love?

    Cons: none
