    I Loved It. It Was My First Car And It Was A Sad Day When I Had To See It Go. — Had electrical issuses with starting and power dist. systems. Overall if i had modded the 4 banger that was in it i believe that it would of had a longer place in my garage. But the first car is always the one you want out but hate to see go..

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

    Pros: Fuel Economy with the 4-cyl engine + 5 speed manual transmission.

    Cons: If you need a dependable car, make sure you have some electrical background for proper maintence.

    Buy One, Love One, Start A Passion — I love the unlimited possibilities these cars have, I don't like the weak ass AOD it comes with, everyone I know who has increased hosepower in these blew their AODs in a week. But its all good, Just buy another one. lol

    Not A Bad Car Just No Power — It has a 4 cyl. and its slow but it looks good after hours of cleaning. the performance would be ok if it had the 5.0 but not the 4 cyl. The car is a blast to drive and a very well known car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It has a  good look to it and it gets good gas mileage

    Cons: its a ford

    Well Worth The 100 Bucks — i bought this car in september 2010 for $100. its a 2.3L inline 4, 88horsepower and i drove it for a month then it broke down so im in the middle of fixing it up, new belts,sparkplugs, alternator and battery, all i have to do is fix the waterpump gasket which i will when it warms up a bit, and i have a cold air intake on it, drove the car for a month its very fun to drive, 5 speed stickshift and rear wheel drive, it looks bad ass and the seats are very comfy, and gas miliage should be much better now but when i frist got it, a tank lasted me less then a week, it has next to no rust which is awesome

    5.0 Mustang — performance- with a few add ons this car was a beast lots of torqe and hp they have tons of aftermarket parts for this car. build quality- its decent aslong as you dont have a AOD tranny youll be fine with just checkin your belts and oil change oo and i did have to replace the oil pump about 2 times other then that it was great. appearance- i loved how the car sits and looks what can you say its a classic notch. cost of ownership- gas mileage was terrible but what do you expect from a 5.0 fun factor- fast,lightweight,looks great ,easy to fix

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

    Pros: cheap fast fun car

    Cons: gas

    Best Car Ive Ever Owned — it is an 89 mustang with a single turbo making 300hp and it runs low 8s in the 1/8 mile. this is a very exiting car to drive. the exterior is good but not perfect the interior is about the same.

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

    Pros: it is fast and handles well

    Cons: there is none
