    A Great Machine — In the 80's I owned a new 89 GT hatchback. What an awsome car. It was fast handled great, and was a chick magnet. Unfortunatly I was young, and I tore it to pieces. I then purchased a used 87 Gt, also an awsome car. It was stolen by a buddy "Imagine that". Drove off a boat dock in a lake. Where it sat for a week before a boat hit it backing into the dock. Once returned to me I began the work trying to save it. I drained all the fluids let it dry. When all was good I placed a battery in, and beleive it or not she started right up. I drove this car for another 2 years before I finally sold it. The car was still running strong the day they drove it away. I recently purchased a 87 Gt convertible. Thsi car is 100% original with 96,000 original miles. Once again another awsome car. She drives like a new one, and the motor is just as strong as a new one. All I can say about the late 80's mustangs WOW what a machine. May the live forever!!

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

    Pros: An Awsome Car

    Cons: None

    Amazing Starter Platform For Any Type Of Racing. — I love this car. As far as quality, I think it's amazing. As long as you keep up with basic maintenance, it is bulletproof. And as for fun to drive, stock wise is pretty fun. But slap some 3.73s or 4.10s and it's amazing! Really a first mod that needs to be done type of thing. It'll really wake up the car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Exhaust note. :drool:

    Cons: Handling isn't too great depending on what you're coming from...

    Most Bang For You Buck If You Are Borke Like Me. — This is one reliable car. I can't kill it, and I have tried, just about every time I have driven it. Nothing major has ever broken on it except for a coolant hose. It is the most powerful vehicle you can buy from under 2K right now.

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

    Pros: Cheap power and tons of fun.

    Cons: Old + rust

    My Mustang — This is By far the Best Car in my Garage. 5.0 Engine, hatchback, black paint, and its a Mustang. Although over 23 Years old, the engine sounds like new, the car looks new, hell, it still smells like new! When i get it registered, it will be the final nail in the coffin for my PT Cruiser.

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

    Pros: Ability to outrun Ageing

    Cons: Insurance

    This Car Gives You It's All, All The Time. Great Platform That Has A Lot Of — The 5.0 may seem weak on paper but let me assure you, the car goes. Stock the car will get you to 60 MPH in less than 6 seconds, with just a few tweaks (many can be done without buying anything,) you can get this car to drop a second from that or more. The car so far has only needed things fixed that we broke, so I would say it was built very well. The interior and exterior is characteristic of 1987 so it feels and looks it's part. Modifying this car is great! (Probably why folks still are buying them.) There are so many parts avalible and for reasonable prices that one can make it livelier on a budget. It is probably the only Mustang you can EASILY strip down to 2400 pounds if you are going to track the vehicle. The Fox Mustang community is still so active you can find detailed how to guides everywhere, even in monthly magazines and manufacturers are still engineering upgraded parts for it. Stock or modified this car has what a muscle car needs.

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

    Pros: Great motor that feels much more powerful than the manufacture claimed.

    Cons: Good luck finding one that hasn't been "enjoyed"..

    Bang For The Buck - Can't Be Beaten. — It's the ultimate do it your self car. It can be modified into anything you want. Mine takes corners, not just the quarter mile. Plus, It's light compared to modern cars and it easy to work on. Makes good torque, so it's fun to drive,

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

    Pros: Acclereration

    Cons: its 22 years old.

    Suckstang — Has less then 500 miles according to odometer. 2.3L Inline 4 put out 70 hp in its day, estimated at less then 40 now. Steering rack is shot, allows for 5" of play either way in wheel. Torque converter shot, plexyglass rear window, duct tape ram air intake, spray painted interior, no working guages. Total purchase price = $400 Added Cobra R rims so I wouldn't be completely embarresd.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Everything

    87 Mustang — Great car, lots of fun. cheap to maintain, unless you modify it like me. Unlimited performance potential, trust me! Gas mileage sucks on mine, 1.5 gallons per quarter mile is a little too rediculous. But it is only for track use.

    Pros: lots of power

    Cons: bad cornering, bad gas mileage
