And Boom Goes The Dynamite. — Um, it's not even close to stock... So yeah. 300 some-odd horsepower and sub 3000lbs with me in it - it performs pretty swell. 30mpg highway, 20ish city (as high as about 25 and as low as 8 depending on how I drive). It rattles like crazy. It also has full 3" exhaust with a Flowmaster race muffler dumped at the rear axle... so that might play a role in the rattles. It's an 80's car. The 80's rocked. Enough said. Super expensive cost of ownership. Almost nothing in repairs, but once you get the bug to upgrade you can't stop! I love driving it every day. By far the most fun car I've had the privilege of driving.

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

Pros: Fast and good mileage, raw enthusiasts car.

Cons: If you don't like noise, or accidentally breaking the rear end loose.

84 Mustang Lx V6 — My mustang was equipped with a 3.8L throttle body V6 wich produced about 120hp :( the car was a fun cruiser, the build quality wasn't amazing at all, the materials used for the car we're cheap and the metal was thin, there was a distinctive "Ka-chunk" noise when you closed the door. I bought the car and planned on swapping a 302 or a 2.3t into it, it just never happened, i failed at that. heh. about 20mpg highway and 15mpg in the city. I'd buy another one only with a different motor.

Pros: while driving it it felt mechanical, not like a couch

Cons: under powered, poor build quality.

My Mustang Svo — Wow does this little 4banger Mustang SVO have a lot of power. Great acceleration, especially when the turbo kicks in! I've done a lot of work to it so far and will continue to do more. It is very fun to drive! Any ford person would love it.

Pros: Very fun to drive

Cons: Wish I could have found it earlier.

1984 Ford Mustang Svo Set The Standard For Today's Performance Revolution! —

This is the car that ushered in the computer age for American performance cars! It came stock with electronic fuel injection, turbo charger, intercooler, 5 speed manual transmission, leather interior, fog lamps, spoilers, wings, alloy wheels, high performance, low profile tires and four wheel disc brakes. The SVO could outrun most V-8s and deliver mileage of 20 plus mpg, handle and brake with the best of the day and the looks insured you didn't see yourself coming and going. This car is not the easiest to drive, but it is does reward a driver that masters it with a fun ride. It is the first American car with 4th generation computer controls and sensors that allowed for good mileage, great reliability, great performance and low emissions! The engine came with forged internals to withstand the rigors of turbo charging and mine has 140K miles on it and it still running strong. With minor modifications, it puts out 300 hp at the rear wheels with a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder motor. Did I mention that 2 teenagers have learned to drive using this car? Amazing. So much so that my first new car since I purchased my SVO in 1984 came as another Mustang in 2005!

Pros: Great performance, handling, braking, unique styling, comfortable, and reliable with great mileage

Cons: They don't make them anymore, less than 10,000 built over 3 years of production

Do Not Buy One Of These — The biggest peace of junk ever built, i would feel cooler driving a pinto, mine had a 2.4 4cylinder, they are slow, bad on gas, uncomfortable, sound crappy, have no room, they are uglier than all get out, i was embarrased to be seen in it, and only owned it for 3 days before i traded it off on a wrecked neon lol

Pros: THEY'RE ARENT ANY

Cons: EVERYTHING, THIS CAR IS JUNK

Inherited Gt — Raised in the car, I'm very fond of it. For it's time, the 175HP 245lbs of Torque 5.0 was a screamer and combined with it's lightweight and carbuerated intake it would haul some serious ass. Today the car is rusting and has been flooded by katrina....the engine is shot but the interior is fresh from a rebuild.

Pros: Becoming a classic, and has rare options and mid-year cycle changes.

Cons: 10mpg city 12hwy, and prone to rust since its a hatchback.

Not Bad For My First Car — great car for a v-6, when the cash starts flowing then i either want to twin turbo a 3.8L or or drop a 5.0L with a roots style supercharger on it

Pros: great summer car, incredibe handling and braking, all it needs now is more power

Cons: 220hp V-6 automatic
