Its A Great Fun Car To Drive — its a great all around car but it could be a little faster. the 5 speed is a must and it has to have a nice sounding exhaust. another must is a different hood, cobra front bumper and different rims

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it is very comfortable to drive

Cons: not fast enough

Good Car For Daily Driver — Good little car to get around in. Got a decent amount of power, and sounds awesome with its flow master exhaust. It's a five speed manual trans. with a 4.6 L engine. within a couple years, it will have a 383 in it though. The body has been fixed up since the picture was taken. The front bumper is fixed, but there are minor scratches on the body. eventually the body will be all repainted.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast and good on gas

Cons: sucks to work on when something breaks

Have Fun! — What I love the most about this car is that it is not so expensive, relly easy to upgrade, good torque and most of all it does'nt break! You almost can't find a better deal if you want to ride in the low 13s daily driver on the 1/4 strip without coming back home on a towing!

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

Pros: power

Cons: winter

I Miss It. — For a 97' the ac and heat worked reallllllly good and fast. I wish it had a sunroof though. The interior was gray... would have been better if it was black leather. The cars pretty loud (from being old) compared to a new car thats quiet.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good first car.

Cons: No sunroof.

Mustang! — Its a great car to own, if you like and are interested in owning a muscle car without the extreme price, these are great cars to get. build quility pretty good. car runs forever with very few needs for repairing. Has a pretty good interior and exterior styling. Lots of options for possible upgrading.

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

Pros: Enexpensive fun muscle car

Cons: 3.8L v6 is fairly low powered compared to vehicles nowadays, and it weighs alot so power to wieght ratio not very good. Lots to upgade to make competitive with newer cars.

Cheap Fun — The best way to sum up the old girl is... It was was it was. It was a fun car with the ragtop, tire smokin V8, leather seats and all that... and it was fast. Never found top end, but I know at 130mph it had more on the table. For being a GT model I was surprised at low quality parts Ford used. The plastic intake manifold surpised me when it came undone one day. But hey, it was a sweet car for cheap money.

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

Pros: Ragtop with a V8

Cons: Not a lot of quality for a muscle car

Very Dependable. — Love my car. It has really good handling. It seems to have good quality, the person that had it befor me rear ended someone, but it was an easy at home fix and it passed inspection just fine. It has good gas mileage and is easy to maintain.

Pros: Fun and economical

Cons: If passengers have long legs.

A Broken Beauty — I like the fact that the torque picks up great but the fact that the stock horsepower doesn't back up that amazing torque leaves you pouring in parts to balance it out for a good run time. Mileage isn't too bad. Gas gauge acts weird. Have True-Dual Cherrybomb Glasspacks. Sounds like a ricer. Euro Tail lights. Needs new shocks. Transmission needs work. has an oil leak.

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

Pros: If you can balance the horsepower and torque it's a great drive

Cons: Gas Gauge drives me insane
