Still A Great Comfortable, Rwd, V8 Car As Any Good Car Should Be. — Could handle better and the 5.0 should be the HO like the Mustang had, but it is what it is. It still turns quite a few heads and has enough power to get me in a bit of trouble, if it weren't for the rust (its driven in the snow and is over 20 years old now) I'd keep it forever. It is a bit helpless driving in the snow, but snow tires and some weight in the trunk would fix that. It's been basically trouble free in the 8 years I've owned it and gets good gas mileage for an older V8 (even better with new exhaust and headers, the factory exhaust was rediculously undersized for this car) Still a great comfortable, RWD, V8 car as any good car should be.

Pros: Dependable, stylish, and quick

Cons: Not as fast as it could be, rust

Good First Car. — This car was my very first baby. She was awful in the snow, but other than that, she was excellent. Minimal upkeep needed. Also, she had pretty decent acceleration for a non-performance, or highend, vehicle.

Pros: The seats are mad comfy.

Cons: Rear wheel drive.
