I Have Been The Only Owner — It is a fun car to drive year round. It was fun to restore. T-top is a blast in the summer and nice to look out in the winter. It has a nice muscle car look, feel, and sound. The interior is restored to like new too. The 6 speed transmission gets me 27 mpg on the highway.

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

Pros: Very fun to drive.

Cons: Gas mileage in town is low 11-14 mpg

1985 Mustang Gt Anniversary Editon — This was my first 'new' car. I worked at a auto parts store and had lots of friends in the business. I got to get high performance parts at a discount and my buddys and I rebuilt the motor a few weeks after getting it - I wanted to go faster!

Pros: I bought this car new with .8 miles on her.  I rebuilt (because I could!) the entire engine within a month of getting it (wanted more power).  

Cons: 3 months later, my sweet ride was stolen only to be found in pieces in Texas a month later.

Fun Fun Fun — This was an LX but with the 5.0 package with T-tops. The faster I drove this car the quieter it got. At 55 to 60 mph it was kinda noisy. The car itself handled great! I could turn on a dime and it held long turns without throwing you our the window. The biggest problem with the car was the carborator. It was a Holly four barrell that mechanics tended to lean out too much saying crap like, "Its to specs" and would not change it. So I had to adjust it myself. Ultimatly it led to the cars demise as too much gasoline got on the engine and ignited. It was totaled in 15 minutes

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun Fun Fun

Cons: Finicky carborator

Only The Second Best Car I've Driven, First Is My 67 Stang. — Its a pretty good ride all in all. Rides smooth, handles turns well. There is a tad bit of noise coming from the rear, but nothing serious..yet.... But performance-wise, its not too bad, great take off, but tends to bog sometimes, with or without clutch. Sometimes it takes it a bit to respond to the pedal. It gets decent gas mileage for a V8. Little under 15, I've been told with some more tuning and easier driving I can even reach 17 maybe even 18. This is Atlanta's Suburban city driving. Haven't driven in the highway much, so I don't know the mileage there. I personally believe there's nothing meaner looking than a Foxy of the Ford line, albeit it has to be modified exterior a bit.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The unbelievable feel of it, For being a coming-out-emission-era car, its not bad at all, espically compared to it's competors.

Cons: If you don't like working on a car every week or so, do NOT get one.
