Mustang Ii — I liked the styling, and the fact that Mustang IIs are the redheaded step children of the Mustang family. It was given, free, to my brother around 1990. We shared it for a year or so, but it was old and tired then and needed more work than we wanted to do.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 4 cylinder economy.

Cons: 4 cylinder power.

Awesome — Amazing car, mustang ii front ends were ahead of their time and the car has decent handling and is quite quick do to them weighing in at about 3000lbs, fun car to drive and to go cruising in. No matter what other people may think this is the last of the ponys to have the same attributes as the original mustang.

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

Pros: Becomming more valuable and great looking

Cons: none

If You Don't Mind Getting Dirty, It Is One Of The Perfect Cars — After I am done with my planned resto-mod, my Mustang II should have about 380 HP and 380 Ft-lb of torque. It will be costly for gas, but I think the fun of driving the car will out weight the costs.

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

Pros: Unique, powerful

Cons: you need to change it for it to be good

Gi-gi The Little Ghia — I love this little car, she's a Ford so you know she was built well. The engine still runs great, she's not bad on gas. She's a small car but the interior is quite roomy. She's a car that's very easy to drive, everything is basic. She's easy to work on and you gotta love the color! The body is nearly perfect, really no rust at all! It's neat because no one really owns these cars anymore so you get alot of looks when driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: just about everything, good on gas, sporty, cute and easy to drive

Cons: it's small

What — Rebuilt the 302 and had a 4sp trans. I bought this from a friend of mine. Fun little car even though most don't consider it a mustang. The value is starting to climb on these. If I were to get another one it would be the cobra model.

Pros: 302 4 speed car

Cons: not sure

Greatest Car — OK, well definitely the best first car anyone could ask for, and I plan on keeping it only because it's frikken amazing. It's great on gas, and eventually I will be getting the rear window louvers, rear spoiler, and I already own the chin spoiler, just gotta put it on. ;)

Pros: handles amazing and looks awsome.

Cons: gotta still give it some more power.

Ford Mustang Ghia — This was the worst buy i've made in my life. The car ran like crap, looked that way too and was the most unreliable thing i've ever owned. It pretty much killed Ford to me for a while. Though i somehow managed to auction it off and make some money out of it.

Pros: none

Cons: looks, performance, comfort, engine... the whole damn thing.
