    1987 Mustang Gt — performance is amzing but finding stock replacement parts at the local auto stores can be a fun filled adventure. finding parts online is the only way to go. car handles great for being over 20 years old. but the interior is timeless and has that nostaglic feeling that will take you back to the late eighties. for being an automatic, its still a fun and great car to drive.

    Pros: the car is timeless and performance parts can be found almost anywhere.

    Cons: sotck parts are hard to come by and the local autoparts sotres are not that much helpful in ordering them.

    1st Ride — Baught this car for 2,300 when i was 16 , had some very fun times in it. The car started falling apart tried fixing it, but repairs got too costly. the motor had about 160,000 on it transmission was about to fail, body had rust holes all over, it would have been a money pit so i got rid of it. I miss that car very much, would definetly buy another one thats in good condition

    Pros: very fun car to drive, punch the pedal and the tires spin

    Cons: Rust bucket, money pit

    Another Failed Attempt With Ford — Nothing much to tell about this one. On one hand, it was in fairly decent shape, including the convertible top, but on the other hand, it had problems left and right. I think someone put it best on a graphic of Ford's logo "At least they circled the problem." I'm not a big fan of Ford cars, but their trucks are excellent. It just needed a lot of work that I couldn't afford.

    Pros: Appearance

    Cons: Not much else

    87 5.0 Was Fun — a blast to drive and unusual due to 5.0 with 4 speed. was GT with out the tacky badges. Bad side was the 4 speed blew out several times as was designed for much less powerful car. Finally replaced the shift fork with one from a older Mustang and had no more issues with it.

    Pros: fast

    Cons: crappy 4 speed tranny

    Good First Car — It was a good first car. My dad is a mechanic so he was able to work on it for me when something went wrong. I loved the RWD and still find it easier to drive than FWD. The shocks were going and I could tell it needed new spark plugs. After almost 2 years with it, I had to sell it because my dad moved and the engine kept overheating. I miss it, but I have a more reliable car now.

    Pros: RWD, sporty, steering was easier than most cars

    Cons: slight rusting, not enough jump to the pedal (spark plugs)

    1987 Ford Mustang Gt Convertable — Back in the day this was an amazing car. It was cool looking, it would do 11 seconds in a quart mile and I had everything in this car except a supercharger. It had custom paint, wheels and you name it. I could race anyone and WIN. Not bad for a chic.

    Pros: Hot and sexy car

    Cons: the Ex got it in the break up

    Another Nice Ford I Owned.. — Performance was ok:acceleration,braking and handling were all good. Build quality was good. Appearance was good for the interior and very good for the exterior. Mustang LX is a car that needs lot of gas. I had some problems with the engine but transmission was tough. Was very very fun to drive `cause it a propulsion car.

    Pros: propulsion and nice styling

    Cons: build quality

    First Car I Ever Owned — Not a good year for the 'Stang. The paint peeled, there were all kinds of mechanical problems. The rear differential made loud noises for years, but was too expensive to fix. Overall it was a real dog. But all in all I liked it, because it was still the first car I ever owned,

    Pros: Sound system

    Cons: Everything else

    Most Fun Ride Of My Life! — I drove the GT in Atlanta traffic and never had to worry about merging onto the expressways. That V-8 5.0 engine had more than enough power for any job. I averaged 25 mpg, although much of that was interstate driving. I had the 5 speed transmission, and it was so much fun to drive. I've been pulled over for speeding twice in my life, both times in this Mustang *LOL* I couldn't help it! Like Sammy Hagar, I can't drive 55!

    Pros: Excellent handling and performance, low maintenance, aerodynamic design, comfortable seating, fiber optic gauges, good fuel economy for its class

    Cons: Too low to the ground, required Premium fuel
