Okay For A Single Guy - Almost A Mustang — Great looking car with "not bad" performance from a 351W engine mated to an automatic transmission. This was a typical early '70's pony car that was relatively fun to drive and was a good looking unit as well. For the time, it was pretty reliable, but it didn't retain it's value very well. By the time I traded it off on a brand new 1977 VW Rabbit, it had dropped down to a value of about $900 at the Mercury dealer and $1200 at the V-Dub dealer (ergo, no Bobcat!! - thank God)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks good, not bad power

Cons: It's old and not particularly collectible

Nice Car If You Dont Want Something Common — Great acceleration! Great Braking! O.K Handling! Build Quality Seems To Be Good! Rust is the only enemy! Interior styling is good! Very comfy and elegant with a hint of performance! Exterior looks good. Great from the sides and the back (muscle car looks), but the front looks like it would fit in at a country club in the 70's! Decent car for ownership costs. Fun Factor: AAAAA+++++ It has the optional 351 Cleveland 4v engine with a c6 3speed automativ transmission, complete with shift kit and a performance hi-stall torque converter. And it sounds heavenly at idle with its cam and nice 2.5" dual exhaust!

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

Pros: ITS FUN AND LOOKS UNIQUE!

Cons: HARD TO FIND BODY PARTS
