    1979 Ford Mustang Pace Car — With the 302 bored .030 over and Boss 302 cam and better flowing heads this thing gets up and really hauls ass. There have been a few things I've had to fix, throw out bearing, rear-end, and now the transmission has givin up the ghost. That's the downside of having a muscle car. If it's fast and reliable it ain't cheap. Other than that it's been a blast to own and I'll probably keep it for a long time.

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

    Pros: FAST and cheap to build

    Cons: Hard to find parts for body

    Should I Turn The Nos On? — its a 79 mustang with a 429, 650 holley carb, b&m shifter, nos, 10.5 in slicks. we have put a few different motors in it. It is now a Ofrd blue with black racing strips. the whole inside has been gutted out. Over all, the will run in the low 8's on a 1/8 mile track.

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

    Pros: it puts you back in the seat

    Cons: it will beat you in a race

    1979 Mustangs — what i lkike about this car is its ugly and mean looking i built the car 4 years ago when i was 14and it has been a great running car and i have alot of races won with it it has a 302 that board .30 overwith a big cam and headers it also has frame ties and full rear suspension soon its going to have a victor jr. intale and a 410 gear and after that im going to be done for now

    Pros: its a mustang you can still find 79 thru 82's for pretty cheap

    Cons: because of the short 3 year run for the early fox body mustangs it can bee tricky to find body panels for them and they arent feul injected these cars arent for the faint harted

    Not Bad For A Fox Body Mustang — it had the turbo badges and someone transplanted the 302 into it. Honestly it was hard to get the proper parts for it since it had everything smaller than the v8 cars. when it was all done it was very fast like any other 302 GT.

    Pros: corners and braking and off the line very nice.

    Cons: interior sucked.

    Even Thou It Ran Quiet, You Knew It Had A V8 When It Started. — It's an LX 5.0 package, came with the automatic, cruise, Tilt, A/C, and the premeium AM/FM 8-track with built in Amplifier. At 145hp it wasn't going to win any races but it has a solid nible feel to it. It's no longer stock, It cranks out approx 300-330hp now, and it will surprise the younger kids in thier newer 'stangs. I'm looking to install Cobra 4 wheel disc brakes under it sometime down the road. This is my life-time soulmate.

    Owner for 27 years, 9 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Pros: Nible yet firm feel, a well built car.

    Cons: The front and rear bumbers are sensitive to being left outdoors in Texas, and they are very difficult to come by now.
