1986 Ford Mustang Saleen Coupe RWDReview

Saleens Are Fun! — My car is an 86 Saleen, got it back in 1988. Used to drive it to work daily. That is a thing of the past. It's a toy now, just for pleasure. It's got 78k miles on it. The car was repainted in 93 the original color. I redid the interior with covers from Late Model Restoration. Just added 17" rims from Late Model Resto. 17x9 rears, 17x8 fronts. 255x40 fronts and 275x40 rears. Car has a Bassani Exhaust with hi-flo cats and an X pipe. JBA headers and a host of other things done.

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

Pros: It's fun

Cons: Worry about the idiots on the road

Love It, If You Find One Buy It And Keep It — I Love it, acceleration is more than it looks. Braking is great, handling is eeeh not so great but thats why you get CJ pony Launch shock and that pretty much loosens up everything and the handling went up in points. the stock Driveline is fragile, when i first bought it of course i hit the gas every chance i got now the driveline has a dent in it and now she vibrates it you go passed 80. the interior is comfertable its made for short people like me. Gas Milage is tolerable but not great, the cost of having a 5.0 This car is fun to drive

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

Pros: Speed and the two numbers alone .....5.0L

Cons: if you dont know anything about cars stay away for this, it tedious and stressful work

I Am Looking For Another One In Better Shape I Want This Car Again. — Ridiculously fast, unfortunately due to lack of frame. Good engine layout with plenty of space to work on vehicle if needed. Again if the car had a frame I would still have it to this day but the cost of keeping the car would have been the same as buying a GT in mint condition of the same year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun.

Cons: Old P.O.S.

My Little Fox Body — I like it because it's mine, no other reason. it aint really the greatest car in the world but it keeps me more than happy... it's really fun to drive with the 302 v8, 5 speed manual transmission, and a posi-trac rear end.. the v8 is a little bit of a gas guzzler, but not too bad, I think its right around 18 mpg avg.. the interior, the top, and all the rubber hoses, lines, etc.. are or were in need of changing because the car came from arizona and everything was really dry and cracking.. plain jane eggshell white/black paint on the exterior. and a value? none, because its worth more than any money that could be offered to me, I'm not lettin this one go. :)

Pros: fun to drive, wind through your hair, fast, eye catcher

Cons: likes to drain your wallet a little, and little imperfections here and there..
