Built This Car Myself. — Handling is terrible but what do you expect from an old ass mustang. Acceleration aint bad for a straight six motor. Brakes work like a charm after you replace the entire set-up. Alot more power if you swap from the stock single barrel to the holley two barrel.

Pros: Its a mustang

Cons: Built by Ford

I Only Love This Because It Was My First Car. — What can I say except that I beat the crap out of this car and it wouldn't die. Of course the radio never worked well, AC didn't work, passenger door hinge was bent, got gassed by the exhaust when an exhaust gasket got ripped out while sliding off the road. Absolutely no power. Had an awful fox body on it. But it has sentimental value.

Pros: Nearly indestructible, comfy seats...

Cons: Ugly, wimpy, not a winter car.

My Pseudo-musclecar! — This was my second Mustang, and it was the only one worth taking a picture of. I enjoyed driving it around, but the weak 255 ci V8 mated with the 3 speed auto was not exactly fast! It looked the part though. It cost me too much to own while attending high school.

Pros: Looked cool! (at the time)

Cons: Very thirsty!
