    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.

Apperance- still looking good, just need to buff it out Cost- Its a 23 year old V8 5.0 liter muscle car, what to you think? Fun Factor, it is sure fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It get you where you need to go

    Cons: If you are looking for a fuel effiecent car less than 10 years old, this is not it!

    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..

    Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

    Stellar By uvedicusmartin

    I love everything about the car! The front end had to grow on me because I was more a fan of the 05-09 body style. If you looking for good gas mileage don't drive a mustang. That choice does not compu... Read More

    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
