    My Mustang — I love my car even though it doesn't preform the best or look pretty right now. Its fun to drive most of the time. It only has the V6 in it so its affordable to drive. The body is shot and i hope to re-do it soon.

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

    Pros: Its Color

    Cons: its a ford

    96 Gt — This car was hot to look at but it was a 96 and the first year of the new 4.6 liter. Basically the design was a little flawed and not thoroughly tested as it should be. In 98 the revised the intake which was most of the problem this brought the horsepower up another 15 from 215 to 230. In 99 when they changed the body style again the was more improvments to the engine and that brought horsepower up to 245. In 2001 it jumped to 265 and when the latest body style came in 2005 the horsepower was finally at a respectfull 300. Due to the heavy weight of the car (especially a convertible adds another 600 lbs) and the price tag of it when it comes to performance the mustang has almost always been in the back of the pack. But they have a certain nostaglia to them that makes the purchase worth while. They will always due what they were meant to do which is eat asphalt and spit burnt rubber. Besides most people don't buy cars with racing being there main concern...

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

    Pros: Sound, looks, nostaglia, smoke shows, drop-top

    Cons: on the highway or quater-mile track there are alot of cars that would eat this thing up.

    Don't Buy — Acceleration is good because of the torque but lacks upper RPM power. Redline is only 4800Rpm. It's good for cruising and gets good mileage. The transmission shifts hard. The rear brake caliper slides stuck and wore the pads out completely.

    Pros: Looks good.

    Cons: Not very fun to drive.

    Mustang Gt — Well this is my dream car. Maybe not the exact year but she's my baby. I would say 4.6 suits me just fine. Amazing summer car just hope gas is cheap!! Not many repairs so far. Break pads and small tranny leak.

    Pros: convertible

    Cons: sucks in snow

    Best Car Ever — This car is a BLAST. It takes off like a demon that 4.6 V8 really moves. It gets a little crazy on the corners when your on power but a very good handling car. As far as quality goes I seem to go through tires quickly :). I did however have to replace the radiator at 118500 miles. Gas milage isn't all that great and parts are on the more expensive side. Despite the cost to own I wouldn't get rid of this car for the world. Even if gas gets up $5 a gallon.

    Pros: Fun, fast, sexy

    Cons: tires cost alot, and it's very thirsty for gas

    Great Car, Fun To Drive — Great car fun to drive for any person. Would be a lot more fun if it was a manual. Doesn't need a lot of repairs even for an american sports car. If anything I wish the interior was better looking. Nothing to really complain about 190,000+ miles and stilling running strong. While the V8 GT is the real mustang, the V6 has its pluses. Uses a lot less gas and insurance cost is GREAT. The manual would be more fun but harder to find at low price.

    Pros: style, great insurance cost, decent on gas

    Cons: interior

    1996 Ford Mustang/steeda — well i own this 96 gt/steeda it has the g-trac suspension along with a stage 3 clutch and cobra rearend. nothing really to fancy under the hood yet all it has is a cold air intake. but i have ordered a set of aluminum heads for it along with a paxton novi 2000 supercharger. im in the process of ordering the bottom end of the motor im just trying to figure out what kind of crank, rods and cam i want to go with and how far i want to bore this pony out. other then that the car was an arizona car so it has no rust and only a few rock chips in the fiberglass hood which ill get taken care of.

    Pros: 5 speed/triax short shifter/cobra rearend/g-trac suspension/ ALL STEEDA PARTS

    Cons: wear in the drivers seat and steering wheel

    Pros: Fast, Sounds amazing, good looking car

    Cons: Expensive to run, poor interior build quality
