    Great Car, Bad Intake — Great car. Bought car with 85,000 miles on it. Now with 104,000, it sits in my garage waiting to be sold because I can't afford so many cars. Replaced intake gaskets and now the notorious plastic intake needs to be replaced. Darn 4.6 liter plastic intakes. What was Ford thinking??

    Pros: Decent Power

    Cons: Plastic Intake

    My Sexy Sweetheart!!! — My car is amazing, has a bit of dings in it but runs smooth and boosts at every chance she gets. Her power can be worked on but she gets up and moves. She has alot of miles on her but shes an older car and she seems to like it every step of the way.

    Pros: She'll bite your ass if you dont move

    Cons: Doesn't kick up enough dust for you to eat on her way out!!!

    My First Car — No racecar but a blast to drive. I bought her with 36,000 miles on her and she now has over 130,000 and she never broke down on me. I would still drive her everyday. There could be a few more horses comming out of her 3.8L V-6 engine ( stock I think is only 150). She has a decent bit of body role and is a one tire fire, but I bought the car for 12,000 dollars so I can not ask for much more. She was the perfect first car and I will probably keep her forever.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: No negatives

    97' Gt Convertible — For starters, its a great, cheaper way to make power. And when purchasing a first car as a 16 year old, pony cars is what came to mind. After owning it for a while, and driving an assortment of cars, it has a Mustang-esk heavy nose that zaps alot of the fun out of driving the thing. The sound is great, but handling needed alot of work. To combat that i added H&R Racing Springs, KYB Adjustable Dampers, Auto Power Rollcage (to stabilize the flexiflyer chassis), Steeda Subframe Connectors, Steeda Strut Tower Brace, UPR Castor Camber Plates, 13" Cobra Brakes up front, and the assortment of power mods, Intake, ignition, ud pullies, exhaust. After the modding was done, the car was decent in the handling department, but if i were to buy any pony car ever again (including camaros and firebirds), it would be an 04' SVT Cobra. The nose is even heavier, but they have a ton of power, so it makes it diverts your attention from the negative. My biggest complaint of all pony cars is the absolutely dirt chassis. It makes cornering feel like something you just do to get to a straight away rather than trying to extract all you can out of each corner. I have yet to drive a new mustang or camaro tho, so we'll see. Based on the track Record of both GM and Ford, i dont expect to see much though

    Pros: Noise, A little power, Ease of finding Parts

    Cons: Gas Guzzler, Heavy, Common, Stereotype

    Ford Mustang - Pony Power — I love my car, she is perfect for what I need! I am someone who needs power but is on a budget. Luckily, I found my '97 V6 for $3,600. The gas is what you'd expect compared to a 4 cylinder but compared to a V8, it's heaven. I get American muscle without the debt for gas. It hasn't been too awful to maintain either but there are always parts that you want to buy.

    Pros: powerful, affordable muscle car - good acceleration - easy to modify

    Cons: stock V6 rims - dual exhaust needs work

    Just Another Mustang! — I am not a Ford person and this just became another Ford problem for the owner. Although the car looks amazing, the engine was such a hassle like many other Fords.

    Pros: Nice looking

    Cons: Bad machinery

    American Muscle At Its Best — A 1997 Mustang GT Coupe in Black, 5 speed Manual. 4.6L Ford Racing Crate V8 Engine. Flowmaster Catback, Eibach Springs, Shelby Shift Knob, White Face Gauges, MAC Intake, MSD Ignition, Drilled and Slotted Rotors all around, Pro 5.0 Shifter. A great car that's easy to love. It made wonderful sounds whether at full throttle or just burbling around town. Rough around the edges; material quality was only sub-par, but it is a Mustang. Solid Axle makes for interesting handling, but it still went around corners with some of the very best. Incredible straight line speed. Back seats are rendered completely useless, much better for a bag or a very small child. Trunk isn't much better as it's completely taken up by 4 amplifiers and the sub woofers for the Mach 460 Sound system, which happens to be one of the best stock systems available. Rattled, clanged, squeaked, and rumbled it's way down side streets, through allies, and into neighborhoods. A wonderful car that is dearly missed.

    Pros: Incredible straight line speed, out-of-this-world fun factor, makes great noises, will still return 26mpg on the freeway, great sound system, cool factor

    Cons: Suspension will rattle your fillings loose over rough pavement, live axle makes for less than predictable handling
