    Status, Freedom And Theropy — Acceleration is strong through every gear, better then average but is never enough, braking is below average unless you upgrade to rear disc brakes. Handling is ok but needs all upgrades. The build qulity is poor to todays standards and yes its a rattlebox but i love it! Interior looks are a little boring stock so its up to you to make it look better and exterior looks appealing for the 80's considering the are crap heaps for design back then. This car is fairly cheep on insurance because it is over 20 years old and is now a classic and emissions exempt. Gas mileage is decent on highway even with 3.73 aftermarket gears 100km to 10 liters and city forget about it it is a pig!!! especially when you have to put "super" in it. Fun to drive- yes fun as hell and when you have a bad day, just turn the key and everything goes away. does really nice second gear burnouts.

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

    Pros: Fast and sounds amazing.

    Cons: heavy foot equals heavy fine

    I Just Love It ;) — 5.0 v8, lot's of power, superiour quality. 235 bhp so it's a lot of grunt ;) outruns about anything else factory spec ;) it's a cheap car to own, it does under 1 liter per mile. 1 norwegian kilometer is 1,6 amerikan mile, and in one norwegian mile it's 10 kilometers, so you do the math! :P but it uses less fuel then the volvo i had witch had a 2,3 liter eninge :P and it's a hell of a lot of fun to drive :D

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It runs like hell :P

    Cons: Pedal to the metal - it uses a lot of fuel :P

    Love The Car — A GT 5.0 w/ Paxton supercharger, 3/10 gears in the rear, M/T street legal drag radials, black magic electric fan, MSD ignition system and distributor, 16" pony rims, and cobra R hood, custom mixed paint, and the whole engine was rebuilt from bottom up.

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

    Pros: Great raw power, and the 5.0 is easy to build up

    Cons: Getting into trouble

    I Lkie It !!! — I built this car myself in my garage. It accelerate a little better than due to some modifications. Since I did not put back sound deadening and insulation to save weight it has kind of an echo but other than that it is very solid. I changed the appearance. changes include 93 Cobra rear spoiler, grill insert, tail lights, fiberglass 1.5" cowl induction hood, 92 pony wheels, 5.0 emblems deleted. The car is very reliable. Never fails to start and is always ready to go. It was getting 20 MPG but now get about 15. It may be time for a tune up. I have a lot of fun driving this car.

    Pros: Still quick enough to out accelerate a large amount more modern cars on the road today.

    Cons: You don't want to get noticed or don't like moving fast through traffic.

    Mustang's Rock — I love my stang!! This is my first car I use to drag race with. Only I need is more money to make it go faster!! The outside looks bad, needs some paint. The inside looks pretty good for as old as it is. The fun factor is the best part about my car. There is nothing better that driving a fast five speed car.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    One Fast Car — I love the ford mustang. 1988 Ford mustang GT with a crate 302 GT 40 heads. All leather interior, sunroof, and some big tires on the back. Did I mention loud? Flowmaster exhaust with dumps and the back axle. Rumble everywhere. Red with a gray fade at the bottom. Oh yea and it was bottle fed!!

    Pros: Tons of power

    Cons: police magnet
