Has A Lot If Potential And Value — I still love it its a fun car turns heads wherever you go. I did all the work on it myself from the engine interior and paintjob. It belonged to my grandmother it had only 15k . As you can see I enjoy cruising it around every now and then.

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

Pros: CLASSIC HARD TO FIND CAR. NICE INTERIOR AND PAINTJOB. MAINTENANCE UP TO DATE.LIGHTWIEGHT. V-8.  RWD.  60k original miles

Cons: Small gas tank. Need to special custom fit for back wheels if you want to puti wider rims. Crash parts are not not easy to find

Cars Are Meant To Be Driven. Don't Leave 'em In The Garage Just Cause It Rains. — Factory Ford, what more is there to say. Needs a new coat of poly and a couple touch ups here and there, otherwise, she's spectacular inside and out. Not a tempermental cutie - just a reved up beauty. I love my car.

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

Pros: It's a classic.

Cons: F O R D

Different Than A Typical Mustang, But You Pay For It In Tracking Down Decent Parts. — I rebuilt this car myself.TWICE!! Originally a 200 cid 6cyl auto car, I built a 325 hp 302 small block and a super built c4 auto trans. Factory 4 wheel drum brakes were tossed in favor of factory front manual disc brakes. The car never really achieved the performance that it was capable of.

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

Pros: fun, semi-sporty and light-weight

Cons: replacment parts are impossible to find

A True Muscle Car — its a 1972 ford maverick grabber. ive changed the original 302 2 barrell to a hooker headers, 4 barrel, better ignition system muscle car. the acceleration is great, but the braking and handling suck. lol

Pros: looks and speed

Cons: braking, handling, and its age

The Mustang's Underappreciated Cousin ... — thirty-six years old and still driven on a daily basis. Has outlived MANY other, newer cars ... 'nuff said.

Pros: Inline six is the most indestructible force in the universe

Cons: back seat is not for non-short people
