    Good Car For The Money — This was not the most powerful car because it had a worn down four cylinder engine. When i bought it the transmission was stripped. Its paint was faided but there were no scratches. For what i paid for it it was a good car.

    A Very Well Built Car — The ford 302 has always been a good engine. Handling isn't the best, could be better. Interior could use upgrades exterior is ok. For being a 302 it's pretty good on gas. Overall the car is very fun to drive.

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

    Pros: very quick car. Fun for racing

    Cons: No reasons at all

    1989 Ford Mustang Lx Sport 5.0l Convertible — Very good power and a well-proven, reliable platform. As with most Fords though, the styling leaves much to be desired. Braking is marginal ... it has rear drums. As mentioned, very reliable; just keep the oil changed and new tires as necessary.

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

    Pros: Reliability and power

    Cons: Styling

    Good Car For The Price — The Mustang has always been an inexpensive sports car, and this one is capable of showing what a sports car can do. So far, my Stang has 114K on it and it has yet to cost me anything in repairs yet, other than new tires :)

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

    Pros: Spirited fun without the ferrari attention

    Cons: Gas can be expensive...

    One Fat Pony — It's amazing that I like this car, considering how much I hate it. It weighs a LOT. Heavy stopping and starting. Automatic transmission may have something to do with that. 20 years takes it toll on the car so there were some obvious problems. Gas mileage sucks but it is worth it to hear the 'loping' sound of the 5.0 liter V8.

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

    Pros: Convertible, Classic, Low and fast at speed

    Cons: Heavy, Gas mileage, Age

    Whitewashed — Enough power to make some decent time. Easy to work on. Fun to drive. Can get about 22 mpg city if I act sane. Not bad for a v8 with an automatic transmission, old suspension parts and at least 180,000 miles.

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

    Pros: the 302 under the hood

    Cons: the brakes, lol

    Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012
