Mustang Boss — The accleration of this car is amazing compare with another muscle car in that era. 0-60 mph under 6 second, is one big achievement for car that weight between 2500-3500 lbs. 428 cu in engine just make the driver to scream out.

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

Pros: Pure Horsepower and Mustang Band

Cons: Not Original Parts

Keeping The Dream Alive — I just love everthing about my Mustang. Asome 70 muscle car. AGGHHHHH the good old days..... I have always wanted one of these cars since I saw one brand new in 1971. It took me 36 years to get one and Oh boy was it worth the wait. Not as good a drive as I imagined when I was 12, but back then anything would have been great. Just to have the privalige of owning a little bit of history is fantastic.

Pros: the looks aand comments you get is to be believed

Cons: lot of maintenance but thats ok really

The Amazing P.o.s — The acceleration sucks, the brakes are great, it handles just fine. I had to replace the blinker mechanism. But otherwise I have not done much. It needs a lot of work. Its a standard coupe with a spoiler on the back. It lousy on gas and all of other liquids to. It is the most fun I have ever had in a car!

Pros: Its a Mustang and it sounds awesome!  It also has power-steering and an incredible sound system.

Cons: The paint is starting to crack off in some places, the dashboard was sprypainted white, the suspention in the frount right squweeks, the whindows leak, none of the vackume hoses are hooked up, so the engine is guttles, the radiator leaks, well everything leaks.  So ya.
