    My Little Pony (lol) — i love my mustang it is my toy. it needs new paint and a new top. its to loud shreds tires and is all but impossible to drive in the rain. it only gets about 10 mpg. it is the first foxbody with a 4 barrel carb. factory conv, they used a marine block and crank. and i love it...

    Pros: its mine and i can stomp on the gas and go sideways at almost any speed

    Cons: it needs new paint and top but hey its 26 years old.

    So Far It's A Piece, I Got It Cheap And It Needs Work — So far it's a piece...I bought cheap so it's a fixer upper...one of the lifters isn't working properly so I need to change that-and I will start on the 1st (when I get paid next). It has a 302, so I'm happy, it does run, but with the lifter messing up it's knocking, but nothing terrible...other than the that the body is rusting-so I'm gonna get to replace that too, and yeah the interior needs work too, so I'll find out how to do that as well :)

    Pros: 302, Fox body

    Cons: Runs like a piece

    $600 Clist Special Turned-good — So, it's a fox body stang, with the 302, (non roller, two piece rear main, missed it by a month {11/82 build date}) and the hilariously small SROD 4-speed. It runs, it drives (barely) and it's rollin' on stock 14s. :: sigh :: She's got a ways to go still :)

    Pros: No Car Payments, and only about $600 in parts to get her daily drivable

    Cons: Looks like the beater she is, lacks useful improvements that'd allow more power to get pulled from her... still has the smog pump hanging on the pulley, even with things disconnected.

    I Got This Convertible Instead Of A Motor Bike — I bought this car as a fix up project for my son and I to work on. Neither of us know much about cars so we thought we would learn together. It needs the front and rear bumper replaced,a new soft top and paint job. It runs well and is fun to drive. Any tips on how to improve performance would be welcome.

    One Of A Kind. First 5 Speed. With A 4 Barrel. — My father owned one for thirteen years. It gave us the least amount of problems, that any vechicle ever gave us.

    Pros: any part that breaks can easily be fixed!

    Cons: could use a bit more weight in the ass end.

    "not A Bad Little Car" — I have a 1983 forrd mustang which has a v-6 engine and automatic transmission.. It is a rear wheel drive with 14 inch tires. The carberation and exhaust is all origional, It has relativley low miles as some one who owned it befor me did not drive it much. It has good power and consistent response with no hesitation durring exceleration. Down side, its rear wheel drive and it does not have the shure footednes of the front wheel drive mustang, I owned a 84 GT Mustang befor this one and it handled better in that department.

    My Red Flash — I always admired the Mustang LX as it is quicker, leaner and more agile over the Mustang GT model which has some extra weight and has a heavier look to it. The 5 speed manual mated with the 5.0 High Output V8 engine makes for an exciting driving experience.

    Pros: This is a one year edition GLX Mustang, Very Powerful car, fun to drive, handles like a sports car, gets a lot of looks, comfortable on trips, trophy winner

    Cons: Uses premium gas, only downside, gets about 17-19mpg which isn't too bad

    Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012

    Overall this car is a beast for the price and for what it is, 300 HP for a V6 you can't beat it, or the price. Ford has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them. Read More
