    My Mustang — well the performance wasnt all that impressive for a stock mustang but after i added the Exhaust system and the cold air that really made a big differance and made it a lot funner to drive plus after add the part i increased fuel economy by 2 or 3 mpg. when i got it i had to change the front and rear shocks and springs and oil but other than that the car was pretty well built. For an 88 i guess the top looked alright but i had to change the conv. top and weatherstriping, also the seats were worn pretty bad so i bought seat covers for it and they look great, plus wit my stereo installed and all it looks really nice inside. i normally ge around 21mpg on the hwy idk bout around town. this is a fun car to drive wit the extra powr i added and i recommend it to someone wit a buget that wants a mustang.

    Pros: the car handles well, drives well and turns heads lol

    Cons: the older car usually need lots of parts replaced but dont let that discourage you

    88 5.0 Mustang Vert — I owned the mustang for about a year, and it was a love hate relationship. I loved the sound and performance, but I hated having to work on in once every few days to keep it on the road. I can't complain though, the car took my daily abuse of racing all over the place even with 300,000+ miles on the original motor. It was a great sleeper and took a lot of people by suprise.

    Pros: Fast, fun to drive, not too bad on gas for being a 5.0 V8

    Cons: 3 different colors, broke down a lot, needed A LOT of work

    Fast In One Line, But Can Handle The Turns As Well!!! — 1988 Ford Mustang GT T-Top. 1 of 800 made in 1988 according to the records i have found on line. 5.0 with 245 RWHP and 263 FT-LBS. These readings r to the wheels not for the engine.

    Pros: Its one of 800 made in 1988 and the last years for T-tops.

    Cons: It burns a little bit of oil and gets 12 mpg.

    Ok In-town Car — It has a 4 cylinder engine, and the interior needs some cleaning. I just painted it last year in this midnight blue. no rims just hubs. It is a good car for a beginning driver durable and easy to fix. One thing most older fords have problems with transmissions.

    Pros: It looks pretty cool and is cheap to insure

    Cons: Transmissions go bad and does not accelerate very well because of the 4 banger.
